VectraTREX LCP is
designed for thermal forming processes and provides high heat deflection
temperature (HDT) of 245C (473F). Vectra TREX
541 also provides a 20 percent improvement in impact performance vs. standard 40 percent
mineral filled LCP and a higher melt viscosity, up to 3 times greater than
standard 40 percent mineral filled LCP.
Ticona's Vectra TREX 541 is for customers who
extrude sheets and films that can be thermoformed to finished components. It is
useful for applications in several industries:
Medical: For use in sterilizable trays
Flame, Smoke and Toxicity (FST) requirements for use in aircraft interior
Semiconductor: Provides high stiffness and a low coefficient of thermal expansion for use in
541 also extends the application possibilities for the kitchenware and food
industries. Vectra TREX LCP can be used to produce vacuum-formed large-format
sheets or pans that can rapidly heat up and cool down.
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
