Peters Partners to Develop University Professors

Reading time ( words)

Peters, coatings supplier for electronics, is becoming a cooperating partner for the young academics programme initiated by the Wissenschaftsministerium NRW (Ministry of Sciences, North Rhine-Westfalia) which assists with the entry into a university professorship. In this project young scientists perform teaching activities such as lectures and seminars at the university while also doing practical research together with a cooperation partner of the regional economics.

Dr. Christian Schmitz has done his doctorate at the Duisburg Essen University in cooperation with the University of Applied Sciences Niederhein on the subject of "Near-Infrared Curing Systems.“ During the next three years he will now commit himself to coating development and statistical test planning at Peters in close cooperation with our Research & Development department. The University's AI based high-throughput machine will also be included into the planning and research activities. This machine is able to produce, apply, cure and test up to 120 coating samples per day, thus considerably optimising and accelerating the development of a coating.

We are looking forward to a constructive and trustful working relationship and welcome Dr. Schmitz!

R&D Takes Back Seat Amidst Chip Shortage—But It Shouldn’t

12/08/2022 | Malcolm Thompson, NextFlex
As the global chip shortage continues, companies may be tempted to put research and development on the backburner to conserve capital and prioritize production. A primary area of focus has been on increasing production capabilities to meet demand. In this drive to increase capacity, R&D has fallen to the wayside as some companies consider scaling back to refocus on the expansion of manufacturing capacity at current technology nodes. This is a hard choice to make for any company, and even R&D giants like Apple, known for its dedicated investments in innovation, have had to cut R&D budgets below original projections.

SMTA International Technical Conference: Trending on Topic

One of the highlights of SMTA International is the Technical Conference, where more than 100 papers will be presented across at least 30 sessions. “Work that was delayed due to the effects of COVID has been completed and the amount of material coming from the industry is impressive,” says Julie Silk, VP of technical programs. “We have a packed conference this year in Minneapolis.”

It’s an Exciting Time in Electronics

10/06/2022 | Sal Sparacino, SMTA
SMTA International is just around the corner, and we are excited to be meeting fully in person and onsite. The conference and expo runs from Monday, Oct. 31 through Thursday, Nov. 3, returning to the Minneapolis Convention Center. Once again, we will co-locate with Medical Design & Manufacturing Minneapolis 2022 (MD&M). As the world continues to adjust to the new normal following nearly years of the pandemic, an in-person industry conference and exhibition is more valuable than ever.
