‘productronica India’ (14-16 September at the Pragati Maidan Exhibition Centre in New Delhi), has been extraordinarily successful in previous years for an electro-chemicals specialist, Electrolube, and the company will not only be exhibiting at the event this year, but will importantly be hosting a presentation at the show’s Technical Automotive Seminar.
Electrolube has achieved a great deal of success with electronics manufacturers in India, particularly due to its local manufacturing presence in Bangalore and complete range of specialist chemical solutions for a vast array of industry applications. Phil Kinner, Global Business and Technical Director of Electrolube’s Conformal Coatings Division, will present two automotive themed Conformal Coating case studies, examining real problems with an emphasis on analysis and trouble shooting. Phil’s entire career has been spent within the Coatings industry, including former employment at Humiseal and PVA.
Phil’s experience has produced a thorough understanding of problems and processes associated with both materials and equipment. He is a specialist troubleshooter and was instrumental in the development and commercialisation of the first generation of UV cure coatings. Known for his pioneering development of the revolutionary two-part 2K Conformal Coatings, Phil is an active member of the IPC-830 Committee, a regular speaker at SMTA events and has a long association with the National Physical Laboratory.
During the Technical Automotive Seminar, Phil’s first case study will relate to a customer application of a product, historically selectively dipped in solvent-based acrylic with the desired production transfer to Mexico. The customer’s new facility would be utilising selective spray coating with automated optical inspection and the technology transfer was proving very difficult. Phil will discuss his visit to the customer facility and identification of the root cause before moving on to problem resolution. The second case study will analyse a scenario for an automotive tier 2 OEM/supplier in which the customer wishes to remove their current solvent-based coating solution. Once again, Phil will investigate the problem and explain his recommendations.
Ron Jakeman, Group Managing Director of Electrolube, said “We are delighted to have the opportunity to share our expertise in conformal coating technologies with the electronics community at Productronica India’s Technical Automotive Seminar. Our business and reputation in India is growing rapidly and our expert knowledge of automotive applications has been endorsed by many of Europe’s leading car manufacturers. With our extensive range of products, technical expertise and our consistent commitment to pushing the boundaries, we are excited to contribute to the Technical Automotive Seminar, where Phil will undoubtedly deliver a very informative and interesting presentation, particularly at a time when Electrolube is really making a difference for automotive manufacturers.”
Electrolube will also be launching new electronics protection products on stand 1019 at the show. New products include the acrylic conformal coating HFAC, which is well suited for automotive applications, a new zinc oxide free thermal paste called HTCX_ZF and a range of high-performance resins for LED applications. Three new low-hazard, protective and decorative resins that will be of particular interest to LED lighting manufacturers, include the two-part, polyurethane resins, UR5634, UR5635, and UR5637.
