Battle for Autonomous Flight – Boeing versus Airbus

autonomous flightFirst it was self-driving cars and now we’re talking about autonomous flight as if we’re ordering pizza. It’s been all over the news and talks around the watercooler are more interesting than ever. Boeing’s acquisition of Aurora and a stake in Zunum Aero is set to take place this year. The overall consensus is that the aerospace industry is in for a major change. Continue reading

Why Silver Plating Outshines The Rest

silver platingSilver plating refers to the process of covering a conductive surface with silver to prevent corrosion while adding a lustrous shine to it. Not that silver plating is all about looks and it certainly doesn’t mean second on the podium either. In fact, it’s the best metal for conducting electricity which makes it a popular choice for electronics and semiconductors. We believe that silver plating is a critical Continue reading

Why Busbars Need Coating

busbars

Busbars are astonishing pieces of technology that make complex power distribution simpler, more affordable and flexible. Different coating or plating materials provide varying levels of conductivity and duration of the product’s lifecycle.

Busbars are typically made from corrosion resistant copper, brass or aluminium in solid or hollow tubes. They are produced in a range of shapes including flat strips, solid bars and rods. Some of these shapes allow for more efficient Continue reading
