Influence of micro formed edges of metal inserts on temperature cycling durability of tight polymer metal hybrids
The increasing number of electronics in several industrial sectors leads to a rising demand for flexible and adaptable electronic systems with high functional density and resilience. An efficient method for producing such parts is the encapsulation of metal inserts, for example lead frames, by means of assembly injection molding. Here one major challenge is to provide electronics with durable media tightness in a severe environment. The research work covered in this paper focuses on the influence of micro formed edges of metal inserts on the durability of tightness during temperature cycling.
The Journal of Plastics Technology is a peer reviewed internet periodical published under the auspices of the Scientific Alliance of Polymer Technology (WAK)
International Polymer Processing, the journal of the Polymer Processing Society, is a discussion forum for the world-wide community of engineers and scientists in the field of polymer processing.
The journal covers research and industrial application in the very specific areas of designing polymer products, processes, processing machinery and equipment.
The Journal of Plastics Technology is indexed in SCOPUS, the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature.
