New Material Gives New Dimension to 3D Printed Circuit Board Testing
Improved method saved time and money for international train manufacturer
Railway systems manufacturer CAF Power & Automation sought a better method to test the printed circuit board cards used in its line of railcars. To reduce costs and minimize time and risk associated with testing inside operational trains, the customer simultaneously moved to an accelerated testing method and explored the merits of 3D printing technology. After carefully considering the trains’ operating conditions, the team recommended DSM Novamid®ID 1070, a strong polymer known to perform well in harsh environments at high temperatures.
