Master Bond's EP21ANHT is
a highly thermally
conductive epoxy system that is specially designed to help mitigate the
issues associated with tightly packed components and miniaturized electronic
circuits. With a thermal conductivity over 22 BTU/in/ftÂ˛/hr/F and
serviceability from -60 to 400F, Master Bond EP21ANHT can be used in
microelectronic applications. The cured adhesive is also an electrical
This two component adhesive, sealant and coating has a 1 to 1 mix ratio by
weight or volume and offers room temperature and faster elevated temperature
cures. EP21ANHT has a low coefficient of thermal expansion of 18-20 in/in x 10-6/C,
a dielectric strength of >400V/mil and a tensile shear strength greater than
1,000 psi. It resists a wide range of chemicals and adheres well to a variety of
EP21ANHT is available in pint, quart, gallon and 5 gallon kits.
A new service lets engineers and orthopedic surgeons design and 3D print highly accurate, patient-specific, orthopedic medical implants made of metal -- without owning a 3D printer. Using free, downloadable software, users can import ASCII and binary .STL files, design the implant, and send an encrypted design file to a third-party manufacturer.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
