Demands on a modern plaster

Plasters are found in virtually every home first-aid kit. They are available in all shapes and colors and in many different materials, such as fabrics or synthetics. Some plasters have a strong bond and some can be removed easily, while others have additional functions such as antibacterial properties, padding, absorption of wound secretions or for Read more about Demands on a modern plaster[…]

Thick Aluminum Layers for Assembly and Packaging Technology

Within a public funded project (AioLi BMBF-FKZ: 16ES0329K), the Fraunhofer ENAS developed a deposition process of thick aluminum layers on various substrates, like silicon, printed circuit board or ceramics. Due to the negative standard potential of aluminum, the electrodeposition is carried out in an ionic liquid instead of water-based electrolytes. With this method, it is Read more about Thick Aluminum Layers for Assembly and Packaging Technology[…]

Linerless labels – why cheap components can end up being expensive in the long run

Linerless labels have been a hot topic on our website over the past year. This blog has highlighted how the labels are put together, plus their applications and advantages. This time around, we are focusing on the question of why high-quality individual components should be used and why the use of cheaper alternatives can end Read more about Linerless labels – why cheap components can end up being expensive in the long run[…]

New cleaning solutions for altered requirements

Coating, adhesive bonding, sealing, painting – these are just some manufacturing operations calling for profoundly clean, and sometimes activated, part surfaces. It is with these requirements in mind that Ecoclean has developed a set of new cleaning solutions. One of them combines wet chemical and low-pressure plasma cleaning in a single machine. Another innovation consists Read more about New cleaning solutions for altered requirements[…]

EMG eMASSⓇ electromagnetic strip stabilization: a solution for all needs

With more than 60 installations worldwide, the electromagnetic strip stabilization EMG eMASS® has meanwhile established itself as the standard solution for achieving optimum coating results in hot-dip galvanizing and hot-dip aluminizing. This high market acceptance was only possible because EMG eMASS® is now available in different versions which can be optimally adapted to the respective Read more about EMG eMASSⓇ electromagnetic strip stabilization: a solution for all needs[…]

Efficient Solutions for Long-Standing and New Requirements for Component Surface Finishing

Whether traditional or new manufacturing processes are involved, none of the available technologies make it possible to produce component surface finishes in the required quality. Process steps such as deburring, rounding and cleaning, as well as targeted functional or decorative surface finishing, are thus indispensable. Solutions by means of which these tasks can be executed Read more about Efficient Solutions for Long-Standing and New Requirements for Component Surface Finishing[…]
