Investment keeps

pace with electronics assembly

3D print accelerates

Contract electronics manufacturer, DVR, aims to always be proactive and invest in equipment and services, often driven by customer demands. The company, based in

Basildon, Essex, prides itself on its professional bespoke facility and invites customers to visit to see the millions of pounds’ investment in recent years in new machines, equipment and staff training. The company has just introduced a wave solder system, X-ray inspection, 3D AOI inspection, selective soldering and now conformal coating. It believes it is important to

keep growing and keep pace with modern manufacturing methods and technologies. As components constantly change to necessitate the increasing demand for technology, then the technology to manufacture, fit and inspect the devices becomes more critical.

Additive manufacturing/3D printing brings benefits to a business, producing multiple parts in just minutes or hours or five, 10, 20 or more designs per day. Creat3D will be displaying the latest in AM technology from Nexa3D. A key feature is its print speed, printing up to 1 z cm per minute. It can produce tool-less, low volume batch production, iterate a dozen designs in a day, produce a revised prototype during a design meeting or make multiple products in a single day for same day turnaround. The pictured 25 fluid indicators are 90mm high and took 27 minutes in total, that’s 68 seconds per part. There will also be a range of

additive technology and software on

Power supplies meet IoT demands

Medical, smart and configurable power supplies will be exhibited by Cosel Europe. With the ever growing demand

display, including metal 3D printing, SLA technology, generative design software and composite 3D printers. Visitors are invited to bring

examples of parts they may wish to 3D print to discuss the feasibility of incorporating 3D printing into a business.

Displays include e-paper models

Operating from Richmond, North Yorkshire, Easby Electronics off er customers same-day dispatch from its UK warehouse, for next-day delivery. Customers operate in industrial,

mil-aero, medical and automotive markets. With long-term manufacturing partner, Degson, the company off ers products for electric vehicles (EVs), including 32A Type 2 sockets to IEC62196- 2 and 32A Type 1 and 2 cables. Products are certified to UL, TUV, CE and CB depending on the region. Displays will feature prominently

on the stand, with Raystar and Team Source off ering the latest in IPS TFT displays, OLED displays and traditional STN/FSTN LCD

Electronics design services can be bespoke

Customers’ PCB requirements can be matched to one of Delta Impact’s specialist manufacturing partners, optimising costs and logistics. The company can help with short runs, prototypes, high volume or quick turnaround, providing single sided to 48 layer, flexible and flex-rigid, HDI, heavy copper/backplane, RF/ microwave, metal and ceramic substrate PCBs. The company also sources

electronic components and installs them onto the PCB to create complete functioning units, shipped to a chosen destination. The PCBA service speeds up production, simplifies billing and takes pressure off purchasing departments. For cable assemblies, it has the expertise and flexibility to deliver

simple to complex looms from prototypes through to high volumes, including bespoke wiring harnesses, co-axial assemblies, flat ribbon cable assemblies, DIN rail assemblies and electric vehicle charging cables. A range of design services helps

get new products to market quickly, off ering optimised product design, reduced production costs and lead times, supply chain eff iciencies and minimising the requirement for in- house design. Experience across the entire

electronics production process, from design to manufactured product, can streamline the supply chain, while responding to customer and market requirements.

Battery boxes for portable power

Among the engine start packs exhibited by DMS Technologies will be the new range of RFL boxes (Red Flash Lithium) as well as a Wi-Fi box. The company specialises in portable power systems and produces over 10,000 engine start packs annually, used by the MoD, UK and European recovery organisations and fleet operators. More than just a battery supplier,

with experience in all leading battery chemistries, it can support an organisation with high quality, cost- eff ective, battery power solutions as a one-stop partner. It can help save costs whilst maintaining the highest levels of quality, across a variety of sectors such as military, oil and gas, emergency services and industrial.

of the IoT, power supplies are fundamental to many equipment manufacturers. Visitors will see a range of single output and configurable output power supplies which off er digital communication as standard. Connected by UART or PMBus, users can monitor and control up to 85 commands on the power supply including digitally adjusting output voltage, constant current-constant voltage mode and life expectancy. They also off er universal input voltage, combined with various single or

configurable output voltages and output power from 300 to 1,200W. The smart power supplies come with the latest standards and are also approved for use in medical devices that require MOPP. They also off er optional features such as conformal coating, low leakage current and smart fans.

PCB assembly services off er choice of substrates

PCB assembly services have been at the core of Corintech’s business for over 40 years. Specialisms include pick and place of surface mount components (down to 01005 and uBGAs), automated conventional through hole soldering, serialisation and barcoding for full traceability, conformal coating and encapsulation, and wire bonding. These services can be carried out using a range of substrates including FR4, T-clad, steel and ceramic substrates. The company’s thick film hybrid circuits use ceramic substrates to off er increased reliability and durability in extreme conditions. The company’s services range

from initial-concept design support up to end production, with the aim of being as flexible as possible to the customer’s needs. Quality is paramount, especially

when manufacturing in high volume, says the company, which works in accordance with AS9100 and ISO 9001 quality accreditations.

Reliability of supply can be heavily

enhanced by the service and support a manufacturer off ers so customers have a dedicated account manager, who can continuously provide bespoke and specialist support.

Inductors reach for the stars

Commercial- and critical-grade magnetics for RF and power applications, from Coilcraft, include the 0402DC series ceramic chip inductors which off er the industry’s highest Q factors in an 0402 (1005) size for low loss in high frequency circuits, says the company. They are available in 112

inductance values ranging from 0.8 to 120nH, including 0.1nH increments from 2.8 to 10nH for precise impedance matching. The XGL4020 series moulded

power inductors (pictured) are claimed to have the industry’s lowest DC losses and extremely low AC losses for a wide range of DC/DC converters. There are 14 inductance values ranging from 0.11 to 8.2µH. The lower DCR and higher Irms also allow it to operate


with cooler parameters than other components, adds the company. There will also be the AExxxRBA

family of moulded, space-grade chip inductors from the Critical Products & Services group. Available in standard 0603 and 0805 footprints, they meet NASA low outgassing requirements (ASTM E595) and are resistant to harsh-chemical/ high-PSI washes.
