Over the years, the CERTI team has incorporated and applied skills in the field of material sciences and engineering to various projects, mainly in connection with the operation of LABFaber and with factory planning. It has a staff with strong academic credentials (master’s and PhDs) who also have considerable practical experience in the development of new products and manufacturing processes.
Materials for Electronic Manufacturing
In this field of work, traditional materials and processes are selected and approved, such as: soldering alloys, fluxes, cleaning agents and coatings). All of the development is based on the fundamentals of soldering metallurgy, always guaranteeing the best procedure in terms of productivity, cost, quality and reliability.
In addition to traditional materials, CERTI also has experience with special processes, including: conductive adhesives (isotropic and anisotropic), underfill, glob top, etc.; always seeking the best solution for each situation. With the infrastructure available at LABFaber and its network of partners, new materials can be tested without the need for client investment, ensuring that any need to update infrastructure will be implemented.
Nanomaterials and other Materials of the Future
The field of breakthrough materials is one of the fastest growing in current science, and encompasses the technologies with the greatest chance of causing disruptive innovations. The CERTI staff focuses on two main aspects of this topic:
Material Transformation Technologies
The work of the CERTI team on different projects for detailing and implementing factory and laboratory-factory environments, has left a legacy of expertise in various manufacturing processes that can be used by companies in the implementation of new processes or in improvement studies. Included in this skill set are traditional transformation processes for polymers, metals and ceramics, as well as specific processes such as magnetic material manufacturing, lamination of high-performance composites and additive manufacturing).
