We are excited to announce that GM Nameplate (GMN) was recently recognized as a Bronze Tier Supplier for exceptional performance and contributions to supply chain success in 2020 for BAE Systems, Inc.’s Electronic Systems sector. GM Nameplate was honored at a virtual ceremony and was selected from the pool of suppliers that worked with BAE Systems in 2020.
This blog is the second in our series on functional inks. In theprevious blog, we touched upon the various conductive inks used at GM Nameplate (GMN). In this blog, we will explore the different types and applications of non-conductive inks.
Functional inks are a cost-effective method to manufacture printed and flexible circuits. While the traditional technologies of etched copper flex circuits and printed circuit boards (PCBs) are still prevalent, functional inks have the advantage of being an economical alternative when it comes to printing on flexible substrates and mass-scale production of circuits. In this two-part blog series, we will broadly touch upon the essentials of functional inks employed by GMN in its wide-ranging manufacturing services.
As technology becomes more interconnected, addressing how electromagnetic interference (EMI) affects the performance of electronic devices is becoming an important design decision. If left unchecked, excess EMI has the potential to disrupt electronics, causing everything from delays to completely preventing a device from working.
Land Rover is a luxury British automotive company of predominantly four-wheel drive, off-road capable vehicles, owned by multinational car manufacturer Jaguar Land Rover (JLR). In a joint venture with Chery Automobile Co., their assembly plant in Changshu, China, has been manufacturing Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles since October 2014. GMN China has been part of this supply chain since 2015, supporting the airbag emblems on the steering wheels of Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles.
From enhancing the visual characteristics of a part to shielding it from environmental damage, protective coatings have become a vital part of metal fabrication and finishing. While there are several different ways to apply a coating to metal, one of the most efficient and commonly used methods is roll coating.
For the 7th year in a row, GMN Aerospace is proud to share that we have once again donated to the Pacific Northwest Aerospace Alliance (PNAA) scholarship fund. As a long-standing aerospace supplier, we understand how important it is to support the next generation in this exciting field.
Tooling a part to size remains integral to the metal fabrication process. While there are several tooling possibilities including steel-rule and rotary die-cutting, laser and water jet cutting, and compound tools, which method do you employ for efficiently performing multiple operations on a metal component? The answer lies in our video below. By offering a peek into the functioning of progressive dies, the video clearly illustrates the many advantages of utilizing progressive die-cutting to drive productivity.
In the manufacturing landscape, die-cutting is an indispensable fabrication process used to convert a wide range of materials into specific shapes and sizes. Whether you wish to utilize a custom-shaped silicone foam into a gasket, require a panel filler for a medical device, or simply need to cut out labels and adhesives, die-cutting allows you to efficiently cut materials in large volumes with increased consistency and accuracy.
In our previous blog onoptical characterization testing, we discussed the various tools and testing methods that ensure a display meets its optical performance requirements. Today, we’ll be focusing on the next step in display testing: functional tests.
