bottombAppli-thane 7300 is a blue, thermally conductive polyurethane adhesive compound for advanced electronic assembly. It is a self-leveling, injectable compound suitable for electronic bonding and potting, and may also be used for bonding leaded components. It has a long potlife, which maintains its dispensability for 4 hours, making it suitable for automated dispensing.

Shannon MicroCoil

Shannon Microcoil, Limerick, Ireland, uses both round and flat wire in sizes from 0.001” (25 micron) upwards in round and flat wire. Common materials include, stainless steels such as 302, 304 and 316, Precious Metal Alloys such as PtW, PtIr, Pd, and coated materials such as gold coated steels and PTFE coated steels.

PI (Physik Instrumente) L.P.

H-820PI (Physik Instrumente) added a lower-cost hexapod to its large family of parallel positioning devices.  Hexapods produce motion in all 6 degrees of freedom—in the X-axis, Y-axis and Z-axis as well as pitch, yaw and roll.  With a freely programmable center of rotation these devices are virtually as versatile as the human hand.
