If you are working on sensitive electronic components you might consider using a thermally conductive plastic compounds to transfer heat away. High heat levels can often either disable or destroy an electronic component. When used properly a thermally conductive plastic part can be used to minimize the number of parts in an assembly and reduce the entire weight of the assembly. Unlike metal, thermally conductive plastic parts can be processed with injection molding or extruding into sheet or tape form.
One of our motivations for launching the new Inventables Marketplace was to end cold calls. In our view cold calls are ruining the world. We hope our new website puts an end to cold calls. The reason we think cold calls are bad is they interrupt productive work. Most engineers that work in product development wish they had more time to work on designing their product. They often find themselves in back to back to back meetings and when they finally get back to their desk the phone starts ringing. We hope that Inventables Marketplace will be so effective at connecting vendors with new customers they will spend time educating the world about their products by creating and updating product profiles like this one for Overmolding with Plasma Treatment rather than cold calling prospective customers and interrupting their work.
