New SMD fasteners from MTC: Universal spacer and fastening solutions for fully automated assembly

04th September 2020

Press release

MTC Micro Tech Components GmbH offers with the new SMD fastener series SMF-A, SMF-B and SMF-C electromechanical spacer and fastening solutions for the production of fully automated assembled printed circuit boards. The SMD fasteners are delivered in a blister tape on a roll and are equipped with a Kapton® assembly aid. Thus, the components can be placed on the printed circuit board quickly and precisely using the pick & place method. The Kapton® foil serves as a suction surface for the suction pipette of the placement machine and can be easily removed after assembly. In contrast to manual assembly with conventional spacer and fastening bolts, MTC's SMD fasteners save valuable time in production and enable a particularly reliable and safe assembly workflow. In addition, the tin coating guarantees in the subsequent standard reflow soldering process excellent soldering properties for electrically conductive and mechanically resilient connections with high holding force and torque. The new SMD fasteners are available in a wide range of variants and are ideal for cost-effective mounting of boards and components or as simple spacers for distances between 0.9 and 12 mm. Depending on the design and application, electrical signals can be forwarded, ground connections can be ensured and the thermal connection for thermal management can be realized.

Extensive standard range for SMD fasteners
Various base materials are available for the SMD fasteners from MTC. A brass alloy or copper offer improved electrical conductivity, whereas cheaper free-cutting steel is used for purely mechanical applications. As an alternative to the standard tin coating, which ensures optimal solderability and adhesion, a gold coating can be selected for increased corrosion protection. MTC offers numerous product variants, which are divided into three basic types and are available in various lengths and diameters:

  • SMD fastener type A: With positioning aid, with thread (SMF-A series)
  • SMD fastener type B: Without positioning aid, with thread (SMF-B series)
  • SMD fastener type C: With positioning aid, without thread (SMF-C series)

The threads and drillings are used for the attachment of complete (sandwich) boards as well as for the permanently secure mounting of individual components on the board. The positioning aid in shoulder form facilitates centering and the secure insertion into the board bore hole. In the version with through-hole without thread, the SMD fastener serves, among other things, as guide and stop for the screw connections and for the contact.

 

Silicone-free and dispensable: MTC introduces a new 1K gap filler for optimized heat management

11th May 2020

Press release

With the new TCTP series, MTC Micro Tech Components GmbH presents a silicone-free, thermally conductive one-component gap filler based on acrylic. The dispensable paste offers a very high thermal conductivity and can be used in applications where the use of silicone is critical. For example, at car manufacturers it is imperative to avoid silicone, because of outgassing issues, until the end of painting plant. This is to ensure the optimum adhesion of the paint and to prevent paint wetting problems.
In the electrical and electronics industry, all contacts (e.g. switches and relays) are affected because the volatile constituents of silicone settle on the contact surfaces and can have an electrically insulating effect, which can lead to malfunctions of such components.
The silicone-free 1K gap filler TCTP is designed for a wide working range in temperature from -40 to +130 °C. It is ideal for effective heat dissipation of electrical or electronic components in a variety of application areas, such as Industry 4.0 / IoT, automotive, power electronics, energy storage, rail technology, telecommunications, LED lighting, medical technology, industrial computers, and so on.

Thermal connection and optimized heat management

The pasty high-performance gap filler TCTP is available in standard cartridges for manual or automated dispensing in dosing devices. This means that particularly thin adhesive joints can be applied, which ensure the seamless thermal connection between the heat source (component e.g. processor) and the heat sink (heat sink, circuit board or chassis). Even with complex designs, the flexible 1-component gap filler compensates air gaps, uneven surfaces and component tolerances up to 3 mm, so that effective cooling can be achieved.
The dispensable paste also gives the developer greater freedom in designing the spacing and shape of the heat-conducting material. The new silicone-free TCTP series from MTC achieves a high thermal conductivity of up to 5.0W/mK (watts per meter and Kelvin). Without using the 1K gap filler material, only air, with an extremely low thermal conductivity (0,0262W/mK), would be available for the heat transfer. Even smooth-appearing contact surfaces between the heat source and the heat sink actually only touch about 20%. These micro bumps and bulges form heat-insulating air cavities. Due to the use of the thermally highly conductive 1K-Gap-Filler material, the heat dissipation is optimized. The RGT rule illustrates how essential optimal heat management and protection against overheating is for the lifespan of electronic components, which simply states that if the operating temperature is reduced by 10K, the lifespan roughly doubles.

High shape adaptability for sensitive assemblies

The dispensable and silicone-free 1K gap filler from MTC enables the establishment of highly thermally conductive form-in-place connections. The pasty heat-conducting material adapts flexibly to the respective surfaces and component shape, has a very good compressibility and convinces with excellent dosing properties. Since when assembling the cooling device the full thermal conductivity is achieved with very low contact pressure and also permanently low mechanical forces act on components and circuit boards. The TCTP series is particularly suitable for use with sensitive component groups, but also for plug-in cooling solutions with low clamping forces.

High security and durability

The silicone-free 1-component gap filler remains tough and elastic even after curing at room temperature, does not dry out and is resistant to water and most acids, alkalis and organic substances. Unopened cartridges can be stored for up to 12 months (shelf life). In regard to flammability, the TCTP series is certified according to UL 94 with a flammability classification of V-0. Thermally conductive materials from MTC meet the highest quality and safety standards for reliable and long-term use and are subject to strict controls during production.

Optional with insulating glass beads

For electrical isolation and as a spacer between the heat source and the heat sink, MTC offers the silicone-free 1K-Gap-Filler TCTP optionally with added glass beads, which ensure a minimum insolation distance and thus avoid short circuits.

Comprehensive product portfolio and technical services

In addition to the presented silicone-free 1K gap fillers of the TCTP series, MTC Micro Tech Components GmbH also offers silicone-free gap pads (TCGF series) with an equally high thermal conductivity of up to 5.0 W / mK and material thicknesses of 0.5 - 5 mm. In addition, the product portfolio of thermally conductive materials includes industrial thermal pastes, thermally conductive insulators and double-sided adhesive tapes, phase change materials (PCM) and graphite foils. Moreover, MTC is also a producer and solution provider for components in the field of EMC (electromagnetic compatibility).
For the successful implementation of complex and demanding applications, customers and system developers benefit from comprehensive services, many years of experience and extensive know-how. MTC Micro Tech Components GmbH, headquartered in Dillingen / Donau, Bavaria, convinces customer as a global supplier for almost all industrial sectors with its own development and laboratory capacities as well as production and sales locations in Germany, Hong Kong and South Korea.

Microwave absorbers

07th July 2016

Do you know the situation that "a few dB are missing" in the high frequency range during the EMC measurements? Microwave absorbers are often used in such cases. However, they represent no substitute for the shielding measures already taken, but they complement the shielding concept.

mtc offers a wide range of microwave absorbers:

  • ELASTOMER ABSORBERS

By varying the thickness of the material and the filling degree of the iron oxid particles these absorbers can be tuned to the desired frequencies.

  • FOAM ABSORBERS

Carbonized foam, which brings additional attenuation over a wide frequency range.

Key features of microwave absorbers:

  • Attenuation of very high frequencies by absorption
  • Prevention of resonances in cavities
  • Magnetic and electric properties of the surface
  • Standard sheet size: 610x610 mm, die-cut components are available 
  • Thickness range from 0,2 to 76,9 mm depending on the absorber type
  • Also available with adhesive tape
