Reading time ( words)

Ventec International Group, a world leader in the production of insulated metal substrates, thermally conductive, polyimide & high reliability laminates and prepregs, will be exhibiting its latest thermally conductive material innovations at the Ford Advanced Lighting Innovation Expo (ALIE) on October 3-4, 2017 in Dearborn, Michigan. On booth #7 of the Ford Product Research Development Center (PDC), Ventec will present its next generation best-in-class, high Tg thin-core and prepreg material and B-series insulated metal backed substrates designed for today's most thermally demanding PCB applications.

Ventec will be introducing VT-5A2 at the expo, which sets itself apart by offering highest performance thermal conductivity 8 times that of FR4 at 2.2 W/m.K, a high Tg of 190°C, best in class thermal performance (T260 >60 Minutes, T288 >30 Minutes and T300 >15 Minutes) and MOT of 150°C. VT-5A2 is lead-free assembly compatible, fulfils RoHS and WEEE requirements and complies with UL94 V0. This material has been developed for a range of thermally demanding automotive applications.

Automotive manufacturers around the world, including Ford, Tesla, VAG, Audi, Skoda, Seat, Volkswagen, Tata, Bentley, Daimler Benz, BMW, Renault-Nissan, Jaguar/Land Rover, Maclaren Automotive, already rely on Ventec's thermal management materials for a range of applications including LED headlights, ECU, break energy reclamation & e-power train establishing Ventec as a global leader in technology for high performance thermal management materials.

Ventec's state-of-the-art IMS production facility has fully automated 100% inline hi pot testing, guaranteeing the integrity of the performance-critical ultrathin dielectric layer. With industry leading production capacity of >3 million IMS panels per annum, of which the VT-4B series alone is 1.9 million panels per year, and with a 50% capacity increase planned in 2018, Ventec is well placed to meet the forecast growth in demand from the automotive and other sectors, with leading edge technology and quality.

With unrivalled lead-times as short as 3 days ex works Suzhou, and a global network of service and distribution centers, Ventec is well placed to support QTA prototyping & pre-production, through to series production in all regions with a fully controlled and managed global supply chain, sales- and technical support-network.

Ventec's thermally conductive materials are manufactured using strict quality controlled processes that are certified to ISO/TS16949, ISO 9001:2015 and AS9100.

"Our industry-leading advanced thermal management materials provide us with a clear competitive advantage in the automotive market," says Jack Pattie, President Ventec International (USA). "We are looking forward to Ford ALIE 2017 and are confident that with our thermal management solutions along with expert advice from our team, visitors to the expo will discover that Ventec offers the most suitable product for their particular application."

As automation works its way onto the shop floors, it still struggles to replace humans in the supporting roles, such as designers, purchasers, brokers, and back-office staff. Where automation on the shop floor replaces humans in doing repetitive manual tasks, the supporting roles (at least some of them) require intelligence to understand and utilise information.
