Recently our new PLA Filaments were put to the test by industry experts and the results are impressive.

MG Chemicals is proud to announce that Jason Rogers, our Senior Vice President, has been voted the 2016 Treasurer for the SMTA Toronto Chapter.

On September 15th, 2016, the Surface Mount Technology Association will hold its Toronto Chapter meeting. The meeting will address how to better understand and mitigate electronics Ruggedization concerns related to harsh environments that may impact electronic assemblies.

In a recent PwC survey of more than 100 industrial manufacturers, two-thirds were already using 3-D printing.

As 3-D printers become faster, easier to use, handle multiple materials, and print active components or systems, they will find use beyond rapid prototyping.

Conformal coatings are applied during the manufacture and assembly of PCBs to protect the circuitry and components. The performance and condition of the PCB are safeguarded against moisture, corrosion, dust, chemicals and temperature, as well as where extreme climate or environmental conditions will lead to electronics failure if not suitably coated. 

The conclusion comes from two linked projects at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and the University of Tennessee Knoxville:

One proves printed aluminium can at least equal and sometimes better the thermal conductivity of standard heatsink aluminium.

The second has developed genetic algorithms that make use of the freedom of shape available from 3D printing to design heatsinks that fit in the same space as their conventional cousins but work better.
