Impossible Objects is pleased to announce that it received two 2022 GLOBAL Technology Awards in the categories of 3D Printing and Soldering Equipment – Wave for its Solder Pallets. The awards were announced during a ceremony that took place Wednesday, Nov. 2, 2022 during SMTA International.
“We are honored to have received four awards already for our new technology,” said Robert Swartz, Chairman and Founder. “Our composites have been proven to be stronger, yet lighter and more capable than anything on the market.”
Pallets and fixtures require machining and skilled labor to produce. This traditional production process can be slow and expensive. Impossible Objects’ revolutionary Composite Based Additive Manufacturing (CBAM) is breaking that paradigm.
Impossible Objects 3D prints wave solder pallets and fixtures using carbon fiber reinforced with high temperature PEEK polymer. These materials provide excellent thermal and chemical resistance for the wave solder process. Impossible Objects customers report that its pallets withstand thousands of cycles without material degradation or warping.
Wave solder pallets and high temperature fixtures support the mass manufacturing process of printed circuit boards, resulting in tremendous cost benefits. They reduce setup time, improve solder flow, reduce bridging and solder skipping, eliminate labor intensive hand masking, reduce board warping and protect heat-sensitive components.
The GLOBAL Technology Awards have recognized the very best new innovations in the printed circuit assembly and packaging industries since 2005. The prestigious awards contest has been bringing together the global SMT and advanced packaging industry in a celebration of the companies and people that are achieving the highest standards and driving our industry forward.
