SC-400 PreciseCoat Jet from Nordson ASYMTEK

SC-400 PreciseCoat Jet

The SC-400 PreciseCoat® Conformal Coating Jet is ideal for applying coating materials to highly selective areas. This solution is designed for coating small substrates or substrates with high-component density, and when there are tight tolerances between coated and uncoated areas.

The SC-400 PreciseCoat® jet for conformal coating applications reaches locations not accessible by other applicators, using a needle design with jetting action and fast pulse-width modulated control. Small volumes and better control of the material deliver line widths down to 1.2 mm (0.05 in.) wide. The need for masking is eliminated because the flow is so closely controlled. Film thicknesses of 15 micrometers are achievable when using solvent-based materials.

Available for use on the Select Coat SL-940E/SL-941E conformal coating system. A dual-valve configuration is also available if your operation requires larger area coverage in addition to highly selective coating. This configuration combines the precision of the SC-400 with the fast, wide-area coverage of other applicators, such as the SC-300 Swirl Coat or the SC-204/SC-104 and SC-280N/SC-280C Film Coater applicators.

Additional benefits of the SC-400 make its use in production even more valuable. Multiple dot sizes can be delivered from the same applicator, yielding small volumes with good volume control. The SC-400 also allows for clearance above large components on a board, and its performance is not affected by warped substrates.
