New York, NY (PRWEB) June 13, 2005
MD&M East - Minco, (http://www.minco.com/E2Eoverview) a designer and manufacturer of critical components for critical medical applications, today announced the launch of its ÂLetÂs Talk E2E - Engineer to EngineerÂ online community is for engineers with interests in flex circuit, heater, temperature and sensor solutions.
ÂMore than ever before, design engineers are being asked to provide input and direction in areas outside of their direct academic experience,Â said Mary Rapaport, Minco Marketing Director. ÂBy providing a resource for quick and reliable information, Minco believes it will contribute to the success of not only its customers, but also to the engineering community at large.Â
Key among the features of ÂLetÂs Talk E2EÂ is the E2E online discussion forum, an educational networking tool for engineers who seek, or wish to share, useful and meaningful information. The Forum breaks down geographical barriers and allows engineers from around the world the opportunity to exchange insight and knowledge.
Actual questions posed by engineers using the E2E Forum include:
ÂI am looking for a material suggestion for a medical application. I am looking to find a thermally conductive material that will stand up to thousands of cycles of sliding contact with a disposable plastic part. It is to be applied to a Polyimide surface. Temperature is around 80Â°C. Any Suggestions? I thought about maybe a foil? Is there anything relating to the fact that this is in a medical device that I should be concerned about in the selection of this?Â
ÂI am currently prototyping a heater design with catalog Polyimide heaters. I would like to know how I can minimize the capacitive coupling current that I am seeing occur?Â
Other features in the ÂLets Talk E2EÂ community include:
- Ask the Experts Â an opportunity for design engineers with specific questions regarding flex circuits, heaters, instruments or sensors to get answers from a Minco engineer with expertise in that particular area
- White Papers such as:
ÂComparison of Thin-Film and Wire-Wound Heaters for Transparent ApplicationsÂ
ÂPrototyping Techniques for Etched-Foil HeatersÂ
ÂSensing Fluid Temperature with Thermal RibbonsÂ
-Engineering Tools Â which include calculators, drawings and configurators
