90 PCB007 MAGAZINE I APRIL 2022 Calumet Electron- ics has been a domestic pioneer with additive and semi-additive elec- tronics manufac- turing processes. We recently asked Calumet's Todd Brassard and Mer- edith LaBeau to discuss the state of this tech- nology, which traditional processes that they might replace, and some of the challenges fac- ing OEMs or PCB shops that are considering these options. IPC APEX EXPO 2022 was my first in-person APEX EXPO event, and it surely did not disappoint. The show this year was packed with high quality technical courses, engag- ing professional development courses and, of course, an admirable show floor exhibition. This year APEX EXPO really resonated with me, and I would like to leave you with three insights I learned while attending. A two-year project funded by an Inno- vate UK SMART Grant aims to reduce the impact of e-waste using naturally derived, biodegradable and nontoxic products. Those attend- ing 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. EIPC Technical Snapshot: A European Roundup Although it was originally proposed to hold a one-day face-to-face EIPC conference in Frankfurt, travel restrictions in Germany made this impractical. But the Technical Snapshot webinar format has proved so successful that it was decided to run an extended version as an alternative—two sessions, with three presentations each. It worked extremely well.
