Two-component Fluid Dispensing for Electronic Assembly
 
Dilemma: two-component fluids are superior to single-component fluids in many ways, but automated dispensing in production quantities is difficult. Advantages of two-component formulations include longer shelf life, greater reliability for conformal coating, and better ability to withstand certain chemicals or high temperatures. They also emit fewer volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Because these factors become more important with current miniaturization trends, this report from Circuits Assembly says it is time for equipment manufacturers to develop automated two-component dispensers as good as today's single-component machines.

When Subject to Continuous Vibration
 
In this video, viewers see a Spiralock self-locking fastener and a standard 60-degree threaded fastener undergoing the same controlled vibration test. The video demonstrates the mechanism by which the Spiralock maintains its clamp load, holding fast while the standard fastener loosens.

Wanted: More Efficient Topcoats
 
Coated automotive fasteners present challenges as well as solve problems. The first challenge: ensure end-of-life environmental suitability. Another: slipping or sticking during assembly. Finally, automobile lightweighting is increasing the use of aluminum, which can be deformed beyond tolerance limits when the fastener is tightened. All explain why more efficient topcoats are needed for perfect tightening control.

Robot Meets Human — A Gripping Drama
 
How can humans and robots interact on the job? This video, produced by Collaborative, Human-Focused Robotics for Manufacturing (CHARM), demonstrates the next evolution. An operator walks into the workspace and is identified by the robot's camera as his collaborator. The robot, using a three-finger adaptive gripper, and the operator, then help each other assemble a car door.

Gluing Lightweight Devices
 
As consumer electronics devices get thinner and lighter, how do you assemble them? The answer from Design News: reactive hot melt adhesives. Hot melts can now be applied at temperatures as low as 110 C in a line as thin as 0.25 mm; yet they are strong enough to hold two AA batteries.

The Unique Life of Silicones
 
Silicones are unusual among sealants and adhesives. Their characteristics make them suitable for some applications but not others: for example they can be useful in medical devices but poor for insulating double-pane windows. Adhesives & Sealants Industry explains the importance of proper care during the mixing process.

High-amp Welding
 
What precautions should you take when your current is more than 300 A? The Fabricator offers ways to minimize the effects of high amperage on consumables, such as tips, nozzles, and gas diffusers. For example, use heavy-duty parts and consider the type of metal.

Faster Than Riveting and Twice as Strong
 
That's friction stir welding — watch it in this video. The material softens but doesn't melt, so the process causes minimal distortion. It is highly accurate and 3 to 4x faster than conventional joining methods. As the video demonstrates, in the hands of a robot, friction stir welding is good for complex shapes.
