Video interviews with Nordson ASYMTEK China Sales Director, Michael Ho, available
Carlsbad, CA, USA – 15 October 2014– Nordson ASYMTEK, a Nordson company (NASDAQ: NDSN), a leader in fluid dispensing and jetting technologies, demonstrated its innovative equipment, technologies, and process controls at NEPCON South China, August 26-28, 2014 in Shenzhen, China. Visitors learned how to increase quality, reliability, and throughput when dispensing fluids or applying conformal coating for complex applications. New sales director, China, Michael Ho, explained Nordson ASYMTEK’s strong position and strategies for continued growth and product innovations for the China market (see videos at http://realtimewith.com/pages/show.cgi?rtwsid=78&rtwvid=3482&c=0 and http://v.youku.com/v_show/id_XNzc4NzM3OTUy.html). NEPCON South China is one of the most important trade events for South China’s SMT industry.
Three major systems were presented to cover a broad array of applications. Nordson ASYMTEK’s Spectrum II™ advancements enabled solder paste to be deposited at high speeds with the accuracy, efficiency, and consistent dot volume required for high-precision applications. Jetting deposited the solder paste in recessed areas on the printed circuit board and produced small keep-out-zones (KOZs) to accommodate high-density packages. Low-force height sensing and control and accurate and repeatable X-Y dispensing produced dot repeatability, thinner lines, and smaller dots. By precisely dispensing fluid so there is no waste, by increasing throughput, and by improving quality, Nordstrom ASYMTEK engineers were able to show that cost savings are achieved.
Demonstrations of the Quantum® automated, high-performance system highlighted that precision and speed can still be achieved in a large dispense area. The 423 x 458 mm (16.7 x 18.0 in) platform offers substrate size flexibility or can be used with several lanes to dispense on more work pieces per load. The laser height sensor enables fast, non-contact height measurement and continuous path motion control assists in manufacturing more units per hour. Many types of fluids used in SMT manufacturing, like surface mount adhesives, solder paste, and underfill, can be dispensed.
The third system on display was Nordson ASYMTEK’s Select Coat® SL-940E Conformal Coating System. The system comes in two or three-valve configurations and provides closed-loop process control for precise spraying and coating. It keeps the system under control and has many features that make it easy to clean and to safeguard the environment and workers.
“NEPCON South China is always an important show for us,” said Michael Ho. “Many of our customers who are located in the south of China were able to visit us and see our latest dispensing and coating developments. Several arranged to come to our demonstration center in Dongguan so we can customize a demonstration specifically for their application. We invite other electronics manufacturers in South China to our facility to see how we can make their dispensing and coating processes run more easily!”
