The benefits of UV curing in 3D modelling

The benefits of UV curing in 3D modelling
Design teams test the aerodynamics of a Formula 1 car by putting a prototype in a wind tunnel. Using a full-size model in the testing process can be expensive and time-consuming, so development engineers often use smaller scale 3D models during testing - but how can they be sure that the prototype will be up to scratch? Simon Gibbs, Product Specialist at Intertronics, explains how design engineers can benefit from UV curing when 3D printing prototypes.

A strong bond for manufacturers

A strong bond for manufacturers
Although plasma rarely occurs naturally on Earth, we can still see it in our everyday lives. Lightning, the Northern Lights and the Sun are examples of naturally occurring plasma. Here Peter Swanson, Managing Director of adhesives specialist Intertronics, has explained how manufacturers can use plasma treatment to alter the surface properties of substrates and increase the adherent forces they generate with adhesives and coatings.

Tidy workplace and precise dispensing results

Tidy workplace and precise dispensing results
Franklin Electric has faced a difficult challenge when tasked with optimising dispensing processes at their Czech production site. The objective was to reduce the waste of UV curing material during the application process. Dispensing equipment previously used by Franklin Electric had been very inaccurate, creating unnecessary waste, high material costs and additional cleaning efforts.

Tin free silicone avoids conflicting chemistries and assembly time

Tin free silicone avoids conflicting chemistries and assembly time
WACKER ELASTOSIL N9111 from Intertronics is a tin-free single part RTV silicone adhesive sealant, with a neutral cure chemistry, producing a non-corrosive seal that does not inhibit other materials such as platinum cure silicones. This, along with its UL94 V-0 rating, makes it a strong candidate for electronics manufacturing, especially for gap filling, component ruggedisation, and form-in-place gasketing. It is stocked in depth at Intertronics for next-day delivery.

Bringing portability, precision and power to UV curing

Bringing portability, precision and power to UV curing
To improve UV curing options available for the medical, industrial, electronics, automotive and optical industries, adhesives specialist Intertronics has launched the IUV101 LED UV curing spot lamp. The new 370nm handheld spot lamp offers up to 2,000mW/cm2 intensity in a cost-effective and portable package. It enables industry to cure UV adhesives that respond to long wave UV-A wavelengths between 360nm and 380nm efficiently, economically and easily.

Automated sealant dispensing proves a winner for golf

Automated sealant dispensing proves a winner for golf
Based in Edinburgh, Shot Scope Technologies designs and manufactures innovative wearable technology which helps both professional and amateur golfers to improve their game. A keen golfer with a background in electronics design, CEO David Hunter set up the company in 2014 to develop the golf wearable, which collects and analyses over 100 key statistics from each round played, identifying shots, club used and GPS information. The data can then be easily uploaded to any smartphone or tablet (via an app) or computer.

LED curing system suitable for UV adhesives and coatings

LED curing system suitable for UV adhesives and coatings
Adhesive company, Intertronics, has announced the Dymax BlueWave MX-250 which offers all the benefits of curing using UV LED technology, in a flood lamp configuration which has the power and control suitable for production. There are significant potential advantages in using LEDs to generate UV light suitable for curing adhesives and coatings in a manufacturing environment. No bulb to change, instant on/off, minimal life-time intensity deterioration, low power consumption and low footprint - factors that can deliver efficiency and reliability in modern assembly areas.

Superior adhesive performance discovered in plasma surface treatment

Superior adhesive performance discovered in plasma surface treatment
In recent work conducted by engineers at Intertronics’ partners Relyon Plasma, it has been demonstrated that the substantial increases in bond strength achievable with the use of plasma surface treatment, can improve adhesion on many substrates, including those which are seen as difficult to bond. Plasma surface treatment can enable otherwise impractical bonds and improve assembly performance, while saving time and money in the concept-to-market cycle.

The answer to upcoming aerosol restrictions

The answer to upcoming aerosol restrictions
Have no fear the Techspray Vortex 360° is here, which is the answer for companies facing the restriction on technical aerosols using HFCs with a Global Warming Potential (GWP) greater than 15, which comes into effect on 1st January 2018. The EU F-Gas Regulation (517/2014) controls the use and emissions of fluorinated greenhouse gases, and will prevent many of the currently used aerosol dusters from being put on the market after that date.
