Exxelia adopts laser marking for its products

Laser marking is part of the GREEN approach that Exxelia has recently implemented for its products.


Laser marking is part of the GREEN approach that Exxelia has recently implemented for its products.

Indeed, it allows the reduction of the presence of chemicals in Exxelia magnetic products, currently, identified by ink marking which requires the use of protective varnish in order to resist the chemical cleaning agents used by our customers.

Moreover, it allows a GREEN production with the drastic reduction of consumables (generally chemical) linked to ink marking and thus the need for recycling, for less impact on the environment.

 

 

 

 


Exxelia is part of an eco-responsible approach with many industrial advantages, namely

  • Indelible marking => optimal traceability (even on the smallest products), permanent and of constant quality.
  • Resistance to corrosion and heat.
  • Resistance to chemical agents => no need to use protective varnish on our markings.
  • No more use of consumables (compared to ink marking).

Exxelia Ohmcraft High Voltage Chip Dividers Enable Design Flexibility for Manufacturers of Semiconductor Equipment

 Exxelia Ohmcraft High Voltage Chip Dividers Enable Design Flexibility for Manufacturers of Semiconductor Equipment   ROCHESTER, N.Y., September 17, 2021—Microchips—also known as semiconductors—are critical to the function of everyday technologies like mobile phones, computers, radios, and televisions. To finetune the outputs of their main power supply, manufacturers of semiconductor production equipment have leveraged custom resistors from Exxelia Ohmcraft for more than 25 years for their high precision, high voltage and stability.   Exxelia Ohmcraft’s custom surface mount resistors and dividers offer semiconductor equipment engineers with maximum design flexibility in the smallest footprint, as they have the ability to specify both the resistance value of a surface mount divider and the divider ratio. This allows engineers to produce the necessary voltage and current required to create the highest-quality end products.   “Traditionally, high-voltage dividers are made using two different resistors, but our high voltage chip dividers integrate them into one part,” said Eric Van Wormer, Vice President of Exxelia Ohmcraft. “We always work closely with our customers to ensure that we meet the specific design requirements necessary to create their quality technologies.”   Exxelia Ohmcraft’s technology utilizes the proprietary Micropen electronic printing system to “print” precise, narrow, serpentine lines with resistive ink on a ceramic substrate, producing higher performance resistors over a wider range of values on a smaller surface area than is possible with conventional film resistor technology.   # # #   About Exxelia Ohmcraft Exxelia Ohmcraft’s thick-film, surface mount resistors are engineered to meet application-specific needs. Our proprietary Micropen printing technology is the foundation for Exxelia Ohmcraft’s family of resistor products. Exxelia Ohmcraft’s precision leaded resistors are manufactured with our patented Micropen technology to create a unique serpentine design that withstands voltages up to 100kV and provides an unmatched level of performance and stability.

Exxelia equips the Turkish satellite IMECE with tantalum and ceramic capacitors

IMECE is a technological feat that pushes the boundaries of high-resolution imaging. Exxelia is proud to play an essential role in this space adventure by providing quality components to ensure proper operation.   IMECE is an earth observation satellite designed and developed by TÜBİTAK Space Technologies Research Institute (TÜBİTAK UZAY) and produced in Türkiye to provide high-resolution imagery. The spacecraft has a mass of 800 kg (1,800 lb) and it will serve at 680 km (420 mi) on a sun-synchronous geocentric orbit. The Satellite, projected for a mission duration of five years, has 0.99m image resolution of Panchromatic (PAN). The satellite has been launched on 15 April 2023 on a SpaceX's Falcon 9 Block 5 rocket as part of the Transporter-7 ridershare mission.   Exxelia equips the satellite with PM series capacitors that are used in the satellite's Power Distribution Unit (PDU). Exxelia's PM series capacitors are renowned for their reliability, performance, and durability, making them ideal for space applications. Exxelia also supplies tantalum capacitors and ceramic capacitors for the payloads of the IMECE Satellite. These components are designed to withstand the extreme conditions of space and ensure the proper operation of scientific instruments and equipment on board the satellite.   We look forward to the discoveries and data that the IMECE Satellite will provide during its five-year mission. The future of space exploration looks promising, and Exxelia will continue to play an active role in this exciting adventure.
