New premium material for the production of high-precision test sockets
| Subj: Press-releses
In the form of EtroX® V Röchling Industrial presents a new material especially for the machining of high-precision test sockets for electronic components. EtroX® V is particularly suitable for machining high-precision test sockets with extremely small boreholes. These have a minimum diameter of up to 0.1 mm and are very well formed with only minimal burr formation. The high precision of EtroX® V increases reliability and economic efficiency in the time-consuming and costly manufacture of equipment for testing electronic components.
EtroX® V is a premium material that Röchling has developed specially for the high demands of the electronics industry. Leading manufacturers of electronic components have tested the properties of the new material EtroX® V and have approved it for the quality control of their electronic components after evaluating the results. The material properties determined by Röchling Industrial in its own material laboratories according to ISO standards for tensile modulus of elasticity, ball indentation hardness and water absorption show that EtroX® V offers proven advantages over the typical materials from other suppliers tested in comparison.
EtroX® V combines very low residual stress with very high dimensional stability even at high continuous operating temperatures of up to 250 °C.
High-precision test sockets and holders
The softer a material is, the higher the likelihood that the positioning of individual holes will deviate. Optical position tests carried out by customers on test sockets made of EtroX® V have demonstrated especially precise positioning of boreholes. This underscores the low stress level and excellent machinability of the new premium material.
In addition to the manufacturing of test sockets, EtroX® V is particularly suitable for the machining of high-precision holders for the production and assembly of smartphones, tablets and other electronic devices.
