VAPOR PHASE ONE, THE NEW INDUSTRY’S MOST DYNAMIC PCB SOLDERING PROCESS

A new crowd supply campaign has been launched for the Vapor Phase One, which is the industry’s most dynamic PCB soldering method available now to hobbyists and development engineers alike. Compared to infrared and conventional soldering, the vapor phase process works perfectly at controlling high thermal mass assemblies. Big SMD capacitors, high-power inductors, also metal substrate …

HARTING EUROPE, COMPONENT CARRIER NOW REPLACING FLEXIBLE PCBS

Flexible circuit boards offer numerous advantages. However, the mechanical fixation of these circuit boards is highly complex. HARTING has developed a new solution based on 3D-MID technology that is capable of replacing flexible circuit boards. Thanks to component carriers, cost savings of up to two-thirds can be achieved. At the MID process, on the injection …

WATER IS THE SECRET INGREDIENT WHEN LASER CUTTING CERAMICS TO MAKE CIRCUITS

[Ben Krasnow] over at Applied Science was experimenting with cutting inexpensive ceramic sheets with his cheap CO2 laser cutter when he found that (just as expected) the thermal shock of the CO2 beam would cause cracking and breaking of the workpiece. After much experimentation, he stumbled upon a simple solution: submersion under a thin layer of water …
