The Electronics industry continues to grow rapidly. Our involvement covers design engineers, line managers and possible in-house screen printers who may be laying down etch masks in printed circuit board manufacture.
The challenge is the large array of plastic materials used and being able to recommend the tapes & adhesives that are fully compatible: in addition to satisfying legislation in RoHS-2, REACh and WEEE requirements.
There may be need to utilise abrasives within the electronics industry. It does depend on the application and surface condition, especially of metals and in their raw state. This particularly applies to products in cabinet assembly. Initial shaping or cutting to desired patterns are easily achieved by utilising abrasive cutting discs and grinding wheels. Lapping abrasive films and conditioner abrasives all help in providing consistent finishes.
Finished products destined for onward shipment needs good sound packaging offering sufficient solutions to avoid damage in transit. We have an assortment of products that offer 'peace of mind' from document control to identification labels giving you the reassurance that items (once beyond your control) being carried by either internal transport or subcontractors will reach their destination unscathed.
The chances of accidents occurring in engineering can be at a higher level because of extremes of work processes. In order to combat and reduce the risks, we supply PPE (personal protective equipment) to safeguard staff on the shop floor. If accidents occur such as leaks or machine breakdowns, then again we have Sorbents to mop up the spills and specialist glues to repair machining parts and pipes to keep operations flowing.
Technical tapes are a simple, clean, cost efficient, fast, and enables designers and assemblers in electronics to create sleek designs to attract consumers. VHB technical tapes allow fast and permanent attachment of metal or plastic parts to support frames for example.
Adhesives provide many solutions in the electronics industry, in the manufacturing and production. Ranging from hot melt adhesives with an applicator, contact adhesives that come in aerosol cans or 22 litre canisters, or cyanoacrylates for structural bonding.
Accessories include adhesive cleaners, dual lock reclosable fasteners, packaging tape, lubricants, VHB cleaners, utility knives, bumpons and even die cut tape.
NB: Not all industries will have applications in certain processes, thus the information provided will vary. Get in touch to see if we can supply you with the products you require.
