SelectConnect Technologies officially launched the blog, “3Discussions” this week. With the objective of fostering discussions and collaboration throughout the supply chain, 3Discussions is dedicated to the advancement, applications and benefits of three-dimensional molded interconnect devices (3D-MID).
3Discussions was created in response to high industry demand for production-proven information on producing laser direct structuring (LDS) and 2-shot molding on 3D-MID components. Postings on material selection, consultative design, prototyping and other relevant areas will continue to be posted or are planned. Widely used in automotive, antenna, aerospace/military, security shields and sensor applications, the MID market size is forecast to reach US$629.5 million by 2023.
Richard Macary, president of SelectConnect Technologies, said, “MIDs continue to redefine a diversity of market applications by delivering highly effective, low-cost mechanical electrical designs, smaller footprints and reduced assembly time. 3Discussions provides the perfect platform for SelectConnect Technologies and our customers to share knowledge and perspectives to drive innovation.”
