On Demand Webinar: Vibrations 101

It’s tempting to think of vibration isolation as a simple matter of putting a vibration mount between an object and whatever it’s resting on. Anything must be better than no mount at all, right? Actually, it’s not always right. In some cases you can create problems by adding a vibration mount to a system. Join this session to learn more about how vibration actually occurs and the basic compromises in implementing vibration isolation.

On Demand Webinar: Serviceability of EV Battery Packs

On Demand Webinar: The Right Amount of Force: Reworkability of Gap Fillers in EV Battery Packs

The fast-growing electric vehicle market demands robust and efficient thermal management solutions for battery packs, such as gap fillers and thermal pads. Gap fillers outperform thermal pads to achieve lower thermal impedance, as the gap fillers conform to surface roughness before curing. This allows gap fillers to adhere well to surfaces and provide mechanical support during normal operation. However, this also poses a challenge during repair, removal and re-manufacturing. Currently, there is no set standard for measuring vertical pull-off, and hence, there is a lack of knowledge on what level of pull-off force is needed to service these battery packs.
