Dymax has launched its Edge-Carry series of conveyors; designed to ensure rapid curing of UV and/or visible-light-sensitive adhesives, inks, and coatings where typical belt-transport style conveyors may cause clearance issues or damage to sensitive components.
According to Dymax, parts such as printed circuit boards that are populated on two sides or palletised components are handled expediently. This conveyor series provides seamless transition from upstream and downstream assembly, dispense, and transport systems to save time and improve manufacturing efficiency.
It says Edge-Carry conveyors can be outfitted with a variety of lamp configurations to address application-specific requirements, and they offer consistent cure times and complete shielding from UV light. Configuration options allow flexibility when defining intensity requirements to keep operating costs to a minimum. Standard height clearance is 0.75" across the entire 18" width, which is ideal for low-profile parts such as PCBs, and up to 6" across a 13.75" width, which can be increased to either 8" or 12" with optional risers installed. The width adjusts quickly and easily, saving operator set-up time.
Scigrip has expanded its agreement with Biesterfeld Spezialchemie to include France and the French territories in Northern Africa, with immediate effect.
Following its strategy to address composites end-use industries specifically, JEC Group is organising The Future of Composites in Transportation, a two-day event taking place on 27-28 June in Chicago.
Dilutec has launched the Colorgel FR LE gel-coat, which complies with the UL 94 (V-0) plastics flammability standard and is characterised by the low emission of volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
