Dow Corning is utilizing hot melt technology to achieve instant green strength of pressure-sensitive adhesive with the high performance of a crosslinked silicone sealant, improving productivity while reducing costs. The HM-2510 Assembly Sealant was developed to have a low viscosity, letting it flow into deeper sections and gain a longer working time.
The assembly sealant offers reliability of silicone sealants and instant green strength so parts can be moved immediately from one processing step to the next. It's designed for a number of automated processes, including automotive applications, where its green strength can reduce the need for fixturing.
The silicone sealant adhesive offers adhesion to PVC, aluminum, painted or treated wood, high performance paints, plastics and various other substrates. It has a low odor formulation, an open time of 15 minutes and pot life up to 24 hours. The sealant is optimized for use with automated dispensing equipment.
Lantronix Inc. has expanded its line of controllers for sensor networks with the release of a rugged controller that improves management of automation systems used in a number of industries, including manufacturing, oil and gas, and chemicals.
Inspired by the hooks a parasitic worm uses to penetrate its host's intestines, the Karp Lab has invented a flexible adhesive patch covered with microneedles that adheres well to wet, soft tissues, but doesn't cause damage when removed.
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
