Reading time ( words)

Jabil welcomes the addition of Shemer into our global team, expanding Jabil’s capabilities and footprint in Israel. Shemer brings expertise in ship-to-customer level of capital equipment, from basic to highly complex mechanical fabrication, as well as integration to full systems-level assembly, test and fulfillment. For more than 30 years, Shemer has been relied upon by the world’s leading capital equipment brands to design and manufacture sophisticated chassis, enclosures and motion systems.`

Shemer brings two state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities in Israel. Its metal plant in Misgav and its motion plant in Yokneam house more than 350 employees and over 11,000 square meters of production floor capacity and administration facilities.

“Joining Jabil gives us the infrastructure and resources to fully realize our growth potential, in both market and employees’ aspects,” said Yaron Itay, CEO of Shemer. “We look forward to helping our customers take advantage of Jabil’s global reach, supply chain solutions and complementary manufacturing services.”

Jabil is equally excited about the acquisition. Bob Harmon, Vice President of global business units at Jabil, speaks highly of the caliber of the addition to the Jabil team, “Shemer’s expert team, unique capabilities and proven commitment to quality and customer service are tremendous additions to Jabil and to our European region in particular.”

E-waste encompasses a myriad of "unseen" metals, semi-metals, and chemical compounds that are found inside circuit boards, wires, and electrical connections. If not handled correctly, chemicals—such as cadmium, barium, lithium, lead, mercury, and beryllium—can present a significant health risk through direct contact, the inhalation of toxic fumes, or the build-up of toxins in water, soil, and food products.

Dispensing EMI Shielding Materials: An Alternative to Sputtering

08/23/2019 | Garrett Wong, Nordson Asymtek and Jinu Choi, Henkel Electronic Materials Llc
Shielding electronic systems against EMI has become a hot topic. Technological advancements toward 5G standards, wireless charging of mobile electronics, in-package antenna integration, and SiP adoption are driving the need to apply more effective EMI shielding and isolation to component packages and larger modules. For conformal shielding, EMI shielding materials for exterior package surfaces have mostly been applied with a PVD process of sputtering, leveraging front-end packaging technologies to back-end packaging applications.
