CARLSBAD, CA - Nordson ASYMTEK, a Nordson company, has received the 2015 Global Technology Award in the dispensing category for its Programmable Tilt + Rotate 5-Axis Fluid Dispenser. The award was presented at the Productronica expo, in Munich, Germany on November 10, 2015.
Nordson ASYMTEK's Tilt + Rotate dispenser enables precise jet dispensing with five axes of automated control instead of the usual three X, Y and Z axes. The addition of tilt modes from a vertical position in either X or Y axis, enables jetting at varying angles, along all sides of a device, and up the side of a substrate. It has been tested in densely populated PCBs and semiconductor packages as well as 3D stacked die packages. Tilt + Rotate enables unprecedented speed, accuracy and quality for precision underfilling of stacked die, delivering high throughput for volume production. The jet dispenses very thin lines, into tight corners and gaps, and around tall components, and using the tilt mode, the jet dispenses up to an industry-leading ±30° with 1° resolution.
The award was open to equipment, materials and EMS companies of all sizes. Entries were judged on innovation, speed/throughput improvements, quality contribution, cost benefits, environmental consideration, ease of use/implementation, and maintainability/repair ability.
The Global Technology Awards are sponsored by Global SMT & Packaging magazine, a Trafalgar publication, and judged by an independent panel of international industry experts.
