  • Welding with light
    compared to conventional systems that move the laser beam across the welding zone. The system welds plastics such as polycarbonate, acrylics, polystyrene, ABS, and elastomers. It can join like or dissimilar materials. Laser welders from Bielomatik Inc., Plymouth, Mich., steer beams from either CO2 or Nd
  • Guide to Engineering Adhesives
    is often mandatory to ensure every aspect is properly addressed. Nonetheless, there are some general guidelines to the characteristics of different adhesive families. Here's a quick overview. use advanced acrylic chemistry to accelerate curing under ultraviolet light. New cationic formulations cure
  • Medical Device Link .
    , light-curable acrylic adhesives undergo a free-radical reaction to form thermoset resins. Like cyanoacrylates, light-curable acrylics range from low-viscosity formulations (~ 50 cP) to thixotropic gels. In addition, these adhesives vary in final cured form from resins that are hard and glasslike to those
  • Medical Device Link .
    Bonding dissimilar substrates such as polycarbonate, nylon, PET, acrylic, Pebax, and stainless steel typically requires the use of multiple adhesives or assembly methods. A light-curable adhesive designed to provide a single solution for bonding combinations of substrates, MD 209-CTH is suited
  • Medical Device Link .
    . These sources can range from a simple bench-top open unit through to a fully automated conveyor system with several lamps that incorporate special fixturing to hold the components in place during the cure cycle. UV light guides or "wand " systems are often specified for small components because
  • Medical Device Link .
    was to spark some new applications and to generate additional ideas on the potential of this joining method. SUBSTRATES AS WAVEGUIDES. Optically clear polymers, such as acrylic, polycarbonate, and polystyrene, transmit light energy of suitable wavelengths with very low loss levels. In this study
  • Medical Device Link .
    materialsSingle-component and solvent-free adhesives cure in seconds upon exposure to UV or visible light, forming permanent bonds between substrates. Suitable materials include polycarbonates, acrylics, polyethylene, PVC, stainless steel, glass, and ceramics. Each adhesive in the 1000 series is available in several
  • Lighting the 21st century
    into a clear, solid acrylic light guide. It mimics neon and fluorescent tubes but doesn't require the associated high voltages and fragile glass. They've found uses in automotive applications such as the Lincoln Blackwood for truck bed illumination and in Toyota's Harrier SUV for interior console lighting
