The Electronics You Crave are Harmony of Adhesives and Labor
You don’t have to look far to find someone who is craving the latest and greatest electronic toy or gadget. While people have survived many a year without them, electronic have become a must-have for modern man. While the utility and entertainment value of these goods are appreciated, the manufacturing effort is not. There are often many companies that contribute to the final electronic product that the user purchases. Since electronics can be made of many specialty technologies, it is a matter of necessity to combine efforts. The creation of product cases as an industry in itself, so there’s no need for electronics companies to duplicate efforts. The creators of products cases typically put effort into usability studies, so they likely know what customers want. Just about every electronic device manufactured uses some form of adhesive to hold select parts together. The specific bonding need will determine which type of adhesive is required (i.e. cyanoacrylate adhesive, wood adhesive). For example, toxicity and irritation levels must be measured and considered for the medical adhesive used for assembling medical electronics. The type of necessary adhesive is also dependent on how the electronic product will be used on a regular basis. For instance, there are adhesives that offer resistance to thermal cycling under vibration, environmental exposure or biocompatibility. (i.e. uv adhesive). To make sure manufacturers’ needs are met, makers of adhesives conduct research to achieve their adhesive’s consistency. In a effort to achieve product quality, the manufacturer will perform tests on the final assembled product. Now that you have an idea of the effort that goes into the process, you can feel good about the jobs you are helping to create.
