The Electronica and Productionica China 2014 (EP China) event will take place from 18 – 20 March in Shanghai.
RAMPF Taicang, the group’s Chinese subsidiary, was founded in 2007 and produces electro-casting resins and foam gaskets formulated by its counterpart, RAMPF Giessharze, as well as mineral cast machine beds from EPUCRET. The company says it has gained an excellent reputation on the Chinese market, and consequently the production capacity at the site in Taicang was recently expanded by approximately 1,000 metric tons of electro casting resins and foam gaskets. Taicang, a city with a population of approximately 470,000, is about 50 kilometres from the centre of Shanghai. “It’s perfect for reaching customers all over China,” says Fabian Werner, Managing Director of RAMPF Taicang.
Michael Rampf, CEO of the RAMPF Group added, “The quality and production processes of our subsidiaries fully comply with German standards. This is how we ensure that wherever engineering and chemical solutions from RAMPF are produced and sold around the globe, the highest quality is guaranteed.”
At EP 2014 RAMPF Taicang says it will be presenting its range of electro casting resins. Sensitive electronic components in cars, high-precision measuring, monitoring and regulating sensors, as well as numerous other electrical components are reliably and efficiently protected against chemical substances and environmental influences such as hot, cold, and wet conditions. Electro-casting resins, which were developed by RAMPF Giessharze in Grafenberg, Germany, and produced on site by RAMPF Taicang, provide a wide range of mechanical, thermal, and chemical properties, which the company states as being the following.
The new RTI range of electro-casting resins will also be presented at EP China. Exposure to heat is one of the main elements that cause the degradation of resins. The behaviour of a material that has undergone thermal aging is not the same as the performance of a material under normal service conditions. The newly developed RTI resins from RAMPF Giessharze the company states, have outstanding thermal endurance and thus maintain their attributes and functions even in extreme conditions.
RAMPF will be at the Electronica & Productronica China 2014 in Hall W5, Booth 5552.
