Flush-Head Studs

Self-clinching flush-head studs from Penn-Engineering, Danboro, PA, feature a thread profile that enables quick mating with push-on plastic nuts, wire tie products, or other plastic fasteners in thin metal assemblies. The PEM® FHX™ coarse thread design — larger threads relative to the stud's diameter — reduces assembly time by allowing for easy mating of plastic parts and promotes especially high retention force. The thread design additionally accommodates paints and coatings without compromising fastener performance in service. The studs install permanently in metal sheets as thin as 1 mm.

Motorized Digital Test Frames

The L.S. Starrett Company, Athol, MA, has introduced a series of motorized digital test frames for performing a wide range of basic, high-volume in-situ lean manufacturing force testing applications including tension, compression, flexural cyclic, shear, and friction. The FMM digital force testers are part of the new Starrett L1 Line of entry-level computer-based force measurement solutions. Optimized for production and quality control testing, the architecture of the L1 system is designed for fast, easy-to-use, reliable and repeatable operation. The to be used with either Starrett L1 software for computer-controlled testing or with a Starrett DFC digital force gage.

Cloud-Based DHR

42Q, San Jose, CA, has released a cloud-based solution for its MES platform that enables medical device manufacturers to quickly implement and start using eDHR capabilities. Rapid eDHR automatically collects, records, and reports all required regulatory data, and it provides manufacturing executives with secure and instant access to the status of eDHR activity, from any location and on any mobile device. It digitally records quality records in accordance with GAMP5 guidelines and can be used to produce Class 2 and Class 3 medical devices with UDI (universal device identifier) labeling.

High-Temperature Coatings

Electro Optical Components, Santa Rosa, CA, has released a low internal stress coating that is biocompatible and has high temperature stability. The coating has high temperature stability up to 750 °C. These nanoamorphous carbon coatings can also be made electrically conducting, with conductivity varying from dielectric to metallic. A current was sent through the coating with rapid heating to cauterize surgical tools. Sample coatings on suitable substrates such as titanium are available for testing.

Resistors

KOA Speer Electronics, Bradford, PA, has introduced a new 0.2 m | resistance value to its PSJ2 series of power shunt current sense resistors. This resistor features a 12 W power rating and is available in a 3920 package. The resistors offer ultralow resistance suitable for large current sensing, as well as a broad operating temperature range of –65° to +175 °C. The resistors offer T.C.R. of ±75 ~ ±200 ppm/°C with resistance tolerance of ±1 percent. The power shunts are offered in resistance values of 0.2, 0.5, and 1 m | and are AEC-Q200 qualified.

Displacement Connectors

Low-profile insulation displacement connectors (IDCs) are available from AVX Corp., Fountain Inn, SC. The 9176-800 series reduce the z-axis height of the next-lowest-profile insulated IDC connector, the 9176-400 series, by 1 mm, reduce the total overall volume of the standard 00-9176 Series IDCs by more than 50 percent. Designed to connect discrete 22–26 AWG solid and stranded wires and leaded components to PCBs, or to connect PCBs together in a daisy chain configuration, the low-profile IDCs feature redundant, fatigue-resistant phosphor bronze contacts that provide gas-tight, cold-welded wire connections compatible with potting and overmolding encapsulation processes for environmental protection.
