NH Stamping Custom PartsSince World War 2, Chlorinated Paraffins have been a big player in the stamping and machining industry. Used to provide lubrication for these operations, chlorinated paraffins are found everywhere. Over time however, we have learned that these paraffins are non-biodegradable, turn highly acidic in high temperature use, and pose an environmental risk. In the wake of new regulations and the need to find a less acidic and environmentally friendly solution, Steve Costain of NH Stamping partnered with International Chemical Company to find an alternative.

Polyonics ESD MaterialsPolyonics has developed a family of ESD-Safe polyimide and polyester (PET) labels, tapes and films that comply with the S20.20, IEC 61340 and JESD625B standards and are safe to use in ESD control plans. The materials have static dissipative top surfaces and low charging pressure sensitive adhesives (PSA) and liners that generate less than 125 volts with liner removal and again if repositioned or removed post process.

The materials have proven to help designers and manufacturers protect their most sensitive ESDS devices from electrostatic charges arising from both human contact (HBM) and charged devices (CDM) and have become valuable elements in the successful ESD control plans of global electronics EMS’, ODMs, converters and OEMs. Read more

Turmoil Non-Refrigerant CoolerAny Turmoil Closed-Loop or Open-Loop cooler can be supplied with the NRCW option that replaces the standard refrigeration system with a water-to-coolant or water-to-oil heat exchanger. If chilled water is available at the installation, significant savings can be achieved in both initial and operating cost by using this chilled water to control the temperature of coolants being recirculated to your process.

With these coolers, there are significantly fewer moving parts to maintain. Heat from the process is removed as warm water to a central location where it can be used or dissipated efficiently. Learn More
