Industrial design and manufacturing engineers are constantly looking for innovative solutions that can enable new and improved designs, and advance overall manufacturing processes. Across many industries, the trend is toward smaller and higher performance devices. Smaller devices require innovative materials and assembly processes, combined with enhanced precision: fit more function into tighter spaces and maintain or enhance performance of the end device. Such device designs can be a challenge from an assembly perspective, as well as for new performance requirements such as heat generation.
There are many assembly solutions available to engineers today, ranging from mechanical methods such as fasteners, to tapes, welding (ultrasonic, solvent) and adhesives. Each assembly method brings its own benefits and challenges.
