A local manufacturer of adhesives, coatings and equipment used in medical devices has ramped up its production to help meet the increased demand created by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Dymax Corporation is a leading manufacturer of advanced rapid and light-curable adhesives, coatings, oligomers, dispensing systems, and light-curing equipment. Primarily based in Torrington, Connecticut, the company serves the needs of OEMs in medical device, automotive electronics and parts assembly, aerospace and defense, and consumer electronics markets worldwide. In late 2019, Dymax introduced the newest edition of its line of light-curing equipment, the BlueWave® MX-MIM Machine Interface Module.
The global automotive electronics market is projected to grow to a CAGR near 6-7% over the next five years, with the electrification and Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) segments positioned to surge to 16%. This unprecedented growth, along with increased environmental regulations and safety requirements, to the consumer desire for enhanced in-vehicle conveniences, has vehicle manufacturers seeking ways to improve system performance while decreasing overall costs. Traditional solvent-based materials and mechanical fasteners may be less expensive to purchase and implement, but long term, increase overall manufacturing costs. As a result, many design engineers of EVs, BEVs, and PHEVs are turning to light-curing technology to solve issues related to low throughput, difficult waste disposal, and field failures.
