Support New Materials. Improve Processes. Reduce Costs.

Here are just some of the general manufacturing applications Setex™ can address:

CMP Polishing Pads / Surface Finishing

Polishing Pads

Problem: Current adhesives leave residue, increasing time required when replacing pads. This manual cleaning process simply adds costs, versus value. Further, such adhesives typically provide limited repeatability. Costs increase as a pad is used once.


Solution: Setex™ Dry Adhesive material provides a residue-free, high performing, and repeatable pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) solution that reduces machine down time as pads are changed and reduces the number of pads required over time.




Masking

Problem: Some manufacturing processes require masking of components and surfaces so they are protected when other materials are introduced to the overall “widget”. Many masking solutions leave residue that complicate overall manufacturing processes and add costs.


Solution: Setex™ Dry Adhesives provide residue-free masking of components during manufacturing processes. As a dry, repeatable solution, masking costs can be reduced further if masks are reused.

Parts Fixture, Handling, Transfer, and Transportation

Parts Fixturing

Problem: Many manufacturing environments need gripping and friction materials that not only enable parts movement, handling and fixturing, but also are dry, residue-free and able to secure very smooth (and therefore tough-to-hold) parts. Solutions are limited, especially for new material coatings that designers want to use.


Solution: Setex™ Gripping and Friction Materials, as well as Setex™ Dry Adhesives provide a dry, residue-free gripping or friction solution that is tunable to your environment.




Robot End Effectors

Problem: Manufacturing robots need gripping and friction materials that not only enable parts movement, handling and fixturing, but also are dry, residue-free and able to secure very smooth (and therefore tough-to-hold) part. Solutions are limited, especially for new material coatings that designers want to use.
