AirBorn's new M-Series .050 inch Sealed Connectors are rated to 30 psi and meet the performance standards of MIL-DTL-83513. They target I/O applications in which protection against extreme temperature swings, moisture and humidity is required. The M-Series features two levels of sealing. The connectors are sealed at the flange to panel with a fluorosilicone EMI gasket. In addition, a seal through the interface made of EPDM provides flexibility superior to the standard epoxy-based seals that can become brittle and deteriorate from thermal cycling. The sealed connectors are available in sizes 9 to 37 contacts, are custom-built to order, supplied pre-wired and can be ordered with factory- or customer-defined wire/cable.
Producing high-quality end-production metal parts with additive manufacturing for applications like aerospace and medical requires very tightly controlled processes and materials. New standards and guidelines for machines and processes, materials, and printed parts are underway from bodies such as ASTM International.
