CARLSBAD, CA — Nordson ASYMTEK, a leader in dispensing, coating and jetting technologies, received two awards for innovative technology for its Select Coat® SC-350 Select Spray applicator for conformal coating applications. The Innovation Award, from Electronics Manufacturing (EM) Asia, and VISION Award, from SMT China magazine, were presented at NEPCON China, held in the Shanghai EXPO World Center in Shanghai on April 24-25, 2018.

The Select Coat SC-350 delivers superior edge definition and thin, uniform film coating thickness at high speeds. A clear understanding of atomized spray allows for innovative designs that optimize atomization of high-viscosity materials to spray solids or solvent-based materials such as silicones, acrylics and urethanes. It reduces the "cobwebbing effect" that occurs when coating materials cure in air. This exceptional control of the spray maintains tight keep-out zones and enables thin film builds, which are critical in automotive and mobile electronics device manufacturing and assembly. When paired with Nordson ASYMTEK's SL-940 conformal coating system and Four-Position Tilt accessory, the SC-350 can be used vertically or tilted 30 degrees in four positions to spray all sides of a part and areas difficult to access. Using the Dual-Simultaneous configuration, process time is reduced 50%.

"It is always an honor to receive these awards for innovation and quality," said Eric Gu, Application Manager, Nordson ASYMTEK China. "Nordson ASYMTEK has a long history of providing dispensing and coating systems to customers in China, while ensuring award-winning local service and support. Our SC-350 has enabled atomized spray coating to reach new levels of speed and performance and opened new application opportunities for conformal coating."
