Henkel Loctite has introduced a new VOC-free, no-clean liquid flux designed to reduce solder balling defects. Called Loctite Multicore MF300, this high activity flux targets tough-to-solder surfaces such as oxidized copper. Non-flammable and halide free, MF300 is a low residue flux that meets U.S. air quality legislation. This resin-free liquid flux can be used in conjunction with most commonly used surface preservative materials, and it passes stringent Bellcore electromigration and J-STD-004 surface insulation resistance tests without cleaning.

By experimenting with the photovoltaic reaction in solar cells, researchers at MIT have made a breakthrough in energy efficiency that significantly pushes the boundaries of current commercial cells on the market.
In a world that's going green, industrial operations have a problem: Their processes involve materials that are potentially toxic, flammable, corrosive, or reactive. If improperly managed, this can precipitate dangerous health and environmental consequences.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
