Surface-mounted EMI/RFI shield clips save PCB space and cut assembly and rework time by eliminating through-hole manufacturing. Richard McDonnell, product manager for the Midi and Mini clips, says, ''Traditional shielding cans are soldered to the board using through-hole technology. This is often performed after the main automated assembly process using manual secondary soldering operations.'' Supplied in industry standard Tape & Reel packaging, the RFI shield clips are placed on the board and soldered. The shielding can is then fitted during final assembly - within seconds. The Midi RFI clip is designed for shielding cans using 0.3mm thick material: the Mini version is 40% smaller and is suitable for shield cans 0.13-0.23mm thick. Clips are available in 100% tin plate. The EMI/RFI clips are targeted at data processing, telecoms base stations, radio comms, and in-car entertainment systems. Previous devices have been deployed in diverse applications, such as the Bowman Military radio project and automotive SatNav/DVD players.

3D Printing, or Additive Manufacturing, is becoming a game changer in the manufacturing industry. With new hardware, software and materials, one is now able to print complex parts in a huge variety of dimensions. In our focus on 3D Printing, we present an interesting application on the printing of a Turbine Wheel for a clinic in Ethiopia. Another case study describes the printing of Bronchial Grippers . News on the most recent products include a Large Parts Printer , as well as a new material called Unfilled Nylon . This and lots more in the Jan/Feb issue. Enjoy the first IEN Europe in 2014!
