The new SL-1040 system developed by Nordson increases the coating performances with enhanced selectivity and flexibility.

Nordson Electronics Solutions has recently released the new ASYMTEK Select Coat® SL-1040 conformal coating system, an advanced solution specifically developed to improve yield and uptime with enhanced selectivity and flexibility for the dynamic high-volume production of printed circuit assembly. The technology was presented at the Productronica trade fair in Munich (Germany).

Conformal coating is an enabling process that allows to protect electronics from harsh environments, assuring safe and reliable performances. Since coating materials must be selectively applied to avoid critical components such as connector pins, test points and relays in order to reach the highest level of reliability, the selective coating equipment – in contrast to broadcast spraying or dipping that require masking – only covers the desired regions of the board.

The ASYMTEK Select Coat SL-1040 system pairs new process control and preventive maintenance with the new SC-450 PreciseCoat® Jet and the enhanced EasyCoat® software, maximising then throughput while flexible features provide better yields through efficient changeover, traceability and set-up consistency. Moreover, a new patent-pending ultrasonic cleaning station simplifies nozzle cleaning, improving uptime and cost of ownership.

“When you cannot go back and fix it, you need the process control to apply the conformal coating correctly the first time. With the new Select Coat SL-1040, we have kept the time-tested functionality of the SL-940 and added significant system-level advancements to take conformal coating performance to the next level for better yield and uptime,” has stated Almar Thewissen, the product manager of Nordson Electronics Solutions.
