The Future of Semiconductors

January 13, 2016

Join the discussion with three of the leading experts on semiconductors as they discuss the most important innovations going on in the market.

Key Take-Aways:

  • Understanding of the changing semiconductor market
  • New technologies in the semiconductor market
  • Companies and products to watch

An Introduction to Humidity and Moisture Measurement

January 19, 2016

Understand the technologies, techniques, and products used to measure moisture in compressed air and gases. This presentation addresses a range of topics, including humidity measurement definitions and terminology; moisture measurement technologies; sampling methods and calibration requirements.

Key Take-Aways:

  • Understand why humidity and moisture should be measured and controlled
  • Learn the major markets and applications for moisture/humidity measurement
  • Discover primary technologies for measuring moisture in compressed air and gasses
  • Understand the importance of calibration frequency and traceability

Understand the key design criteria for a Fiber Bet Mist Eliminator

January 20, 2016

When selecting capital equipment such as aerosol mist collectors there are tradeoffs to be made. A lower front-end cost is tempting, but what are the consequences of making that selection? In this presentation, attendees will consider design criteria critical to meeting project objectives.

Key Take-Aways:

  • Understand how fiber bed filters (FBF) are used to control aerosol emissions, either as a standalone device or as a 'pre-filter' for other air pollution control (APC) devices
  • Learn how key design elements - such as bed depth, fiber size, bed density, and flow direction - affect system performance
  • Work with a fixed design parameter and discover the potential differences in final equipment design
  • Learn how to balance the 'tradeoffs' between capital costs and operating costs

Bonding and Attachment Solutions - Do You Know What Adhesives to Use?

January 20, 2016

Selecting the right adhesive for your application can be challenging. For example, 3M offers more than 2,000 adhesive products. Some of those products bond to plasticizers, some to silicones, some to foams, and some to oily metals. This presentation will describe tape solutions for a variety of bonding applications, including thick, thin and/or dissimilar substrates, or substrates with low surface energy.

Key Take-Aways:

  • Understand the difference between 3M™ VHB™ Tapes, adhesive transfer tapes, and double coated tapes
  • Discover how 3M adhesive tapes can solve many difficult bonding applications
  • Learn how die cut adhesives from Action Fabricators - a 3M Preferred Converter - facilitate handling and application
  • Understand how the services provided by Action Fabricators can help in your design and sample needs

Silicone Elastomer Technologies for Wearable Electronics

January 21, 2016

The rapidly expanding market for wearable electronic devices presents unique challenges to design engineers. This presentation explains how silicone elastomer technologies can lower production costs, meet the demands of daily wear, and easily accommodate a multitude of form and functional requirements.

Key Take-Aways:

  • Learn how self-adhesive liquid silicone rubber can build a better wearable device
  • Understand how SilGel® and SILPURAN® silicone gels can offer added protection of wearable electronics
  • Discover WACKER's next generation adhesives for MEMS and high-speed fabrication
  • Learn about advances in ELASTOSIL® and SILPURAN® silicone films for EAP and sensing applications
