Aismalibar Underscores Commitment to Sustainability

Reading time ( words)

Aismalibar has taken a step forward in terms of environmental sustainability by installing photovoltaic panels on the roof of its Barcelona plant.

Green energy is a priority for Aismalibar and this installation allows the company to generate sustainable power for self-consumption. To date, this generated force represents one third of the energy necessary for the operation of the factory.

According to the data of the Solar Energy Institute of the Polytechnic University of Madrid, at the end of 2017 in Spain, 4.5GW of photovoltaic were installed, placing the country in the 10th position worldwide. The same year, photovoltaic energy accounted for 3.1% of national electricity demand, so we are still talking about a residual presence of this type of energy in the Spanish scenario.

The investment in sustainable energy is in fact a commitment not to compromise the needs of future generations, but the global alarm in terms of environmental pollution, require a firm commitment to improve the production processes of industries.

The response to this situation is not limited to the Aismalibar plant, but the Benmayor Group has other companies linked to sectors such as health or the automotive industry and totals more than 1MW of photovoltaic installations. The data collected indicate that with self-generated green energy, the Benmayor Group covers more than 50% of the electricity consumption of its production plants.

About Aismalibar

Founded in 1934 and based in Barcelona, Spain, Aismalibar manufactures high end copper and metal clad laminates for the printed circuit board industry. Aismalibar’s expertise lies in offering the best solutions to reduce the operational temperature of the printed circuit boards. Aismalibar materials ensure quality and reliability of all the products that incorporate them. Aismalibar has implemented a 100% proof test with 1-3KV (high pot test) to every IMS laminate that is produced. These materials minimize the use of supplementary fans or heat sinks, thus reducing production costs. Aismalibar now operates globally through several subsidiaries. Our priorities are now, and have always been technological innovation and customer satisfaction.

Accurate characterization of frequency-dependent inhomogeneous dielectric material properties is key to the optimal design of high performance and cost-effective PCB antennas. These antennas will be required to enable the plethora of devices forecasted for 5G/6G communication. Therefore IT-88GMW, an advanced resin system reinforced with tightly woven thin glass fibers has been formulated to improve the Q-factor of interconnects and passive components fabricated on PCB laminates.

Improved Thermal Interface Materials For Cooling High-Power Electronics

03/31/2022 | Jeff Brandman, Aismalibar North America
Heat has been a significant concern in electronics since the beginning of the electronics age when hot glowing vacuum tubes were first used to receive and transmit data bits. The transistor and integrated circuit effectively solved that basic problem, but increases in integration resulted in increased concentration of heat, exacerbated by relentless increases in operating frequency. While improvements in electronics technology have been able to mitigate many thermal issues at chip level thanks to improved semiconductor designs devised to operate at lower voltages (thus requiring less energy) the thermal management challenge continues to vex electronic product developers.

Institute of Circuit Technology: A Novel Approach to Recycling PCBs

03/10/2022 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
A two-year project funded by an Innovate UK SMART Grant aims to reduce the impact of e-waste using naturally derived, biodegradable and nontoxic products. Those attending the webinar for the Institute of Circuit Technology’s annual meeting on March 2 learned more about the project, as well as statutory paperwork obligations of the UK REACH regulations. Following the formal business, ICT Chair Emma Hudson introduced and moderated this technical webinar.
