Blocked keyways to become a thing of the past

Blocked keyways to become a thing of the past
Wrekin Products has created GritBlocker; a solution to blocked keyways, which can encourage unsafe removal methods of manhole cover lids and lead to wasted time on site. Manhole cover lids are removed by inserting and rotating the correct key into the keyway before safely lifting the lid from the frame. However, keyway pockets often fill with debris such as grit and stones, which prevents the use of the lifting key. This makes it more likely that the operative will remove the lid in an unsafe manner or that they will have to spend valuable time clearing the clogged keyway.

Chip bonding adhesive delivers die shear strength of 60N/mm2

Chip bonding adhesive delivers die shear strength of 60N/mm2
A thermally conductive, electrically insulating adhesive from DELO is available at distributor Inseto. The MONOPOX TC2270 is ideal for bonding silicon die and other applications where rapid heat transfer is essential. Heat build-up is a common reason for integrated circuit failure and the efficient dissipation of heat in power semiconductors, as used in automotive applications is a consdierable challenge.

Phase change materials: Innovations in thermal management

Phase change materials: Innovations in thermal management
Thermal Interface Materials (TIMs) are used in electronics applications to improve the efficiency of heat transfer and reduce the operating temperature of a device. They work by improving the conduction of heat through to a heat sink, where the heat is radiated to the surrounding environment by means of convection. Demand for improved thermal management in electronic devices is ever-increasing, particularly in applications where both miniaturisation and high performance are required in one package.

Is flexible glass the ultimate solution?

Is flexible glass the ultimate solution?
Glass is an excellent barrier. It offers processing temperatures as well as high dimensional stability. It is also smoother and more transparent thin plastic films; however it is rigid. This limitation has created space and need for flexible alternatives. Companies have been developing flexible, transparent and high-performance barriers, as outlined in the IDTechEx Research report ‘Barrier Films and Thin Film Encapsulation for Flexible and/or Organic Electronics 2019-2029’.
