Increased yield, quality, and repeatability by automating conformal coating process are realized by this manufacturer of automotive electronic accessories
Carlsbad, CA, USA – Nordson ASYMTEK, a Nordson company (NASDAQ: NDSN), a leader in dispensing, jetting, and coating equipment and technologies, announces that its distributor, the Amtest Group, has sold a Nordson ASYMTEK Select Coat® SL-940E selective conformal coating system to APRI, Czech Republic, to automate its conformal coating process. The system has enabled APRI to increase capacity, improve repeatability, and ensure a more uniform and accurately applied conformal coating process. The Select Coat is a high-speed, high-accuracy conformal coating system with integrated, closed-loop process control.
"Conformal coating has become a requirement to protect sensitive electronic parts and the PCBs used in consumer products,” said Jiri Vondrecek, sales specialist, Amtest Group. “APRI needed to precisely apply very small amounts of coating to specific parts in hard-to-reach places. The process had to be reliable and repeatable. They were looking for an automated system that would increase throughput and could handle large volumes while still offering high quality production results.”
“After thoroughly researching the market, we decided to purchase the Nordson ASYMTEK conformal coating system,” said Petr Šumbera, general manager, APRI. “The key decision points were the price/performance ratio, very good local service support, and the good reputation Nordson ASYMTEK equipment has in our region. Selective conformal coating is now a separate process in our production with a fully automated line to ensure that our products are of the highest quality.”
