Asymtek Intros Conformal Coating Platform
Conformal coating platform.
Carlsbad, CA — Asymtek, a Nordson company, is introducing its next generation conformal coating platform, the Select Coat® SL 940E which reportedly provides up to 30 percent faster throughput, a vision system, closed-loop process controls, traceability, and advanced integrated software. The new platform provides high quality and increased productivity in a high-speed, high-accuracy coating system.

With the Select Coat SL-940E, advanced monitoring makes it easier to keep the coating process in control. Fluid and air pressures are set and monitored through software-controlled electronic regulators, allowing traceability for these critical parameters. Data logging and automatic adjustments of other parameters such as fan widths and fluid temperatures further ensure the quality of the coating process.

The new, faster motion system of the SL-940E unleashes the performance capability of the company's SC-104/204 Film Coater applicator, attaining 750mm per second speed and 1g peak acceleration. It accommodates product sizes up to 500mm for higher speed and faster cycle times. The welded one-piece structure of the frame enables high acceleration and velocity with up to 2.5kg payload. According to the company, rotary encoders deliver high levels of positional accuracy for precise coating operations. The platform has a large dispense area of 500 x 475mm (19.7 x 18.7 in.). The enlarged work area enables flexibility during production to add multiple board arrays or to coat large substrates. Programming is made easier with the optional camera and pattern recognition system.

A variety of fluid delivery options are available to accommodate a wide array of fluids and applications. These include the heat circulating Viscosity Control System (VCS) and the SC-204 and SC-205 film coater modules, both of which are non-atomizing systems. The Swirl Coat SC-300 applicator is a three-mode swirl system, while the PreciseCoat SC-400 Jet Applicator can be used for high selectivity applications.
