CARLSBAD, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Asymtek, a Nordson company, announces it has sold its 1,000th Century® Series conformal coating unit in Europe to Siemens Automation and Drives (A&D), Equipment Plant Erlangen (GWE) in Germany. Siemens A&D, a recent recipient of Produktion magazine’s 2006 “Factory of the Year” award, selected the Asymtek system because its patented dispensing technology provides precise, mask free, uniform deposition of conformal coating, which is required for the protection of the electronics of their motion control systems.
Siemens added Asymtek’s Century C-740 Series Selective Conformal Coating System, configured with the Viscosity Control Process Module, the Laser Fan Width Process Control Module and the patented non-atomizing SC-100 Film Coater, to furnish their Erlangen plant’s conformal coating lines.
Siemens first purchased a Nordson Select Coat® unit in 1996, and over the years, has added six Asymtek coating units after extensive testing and interviews with major customers and key industry contacts. “There is no question that Asymtek has the best technology for conformal coating in the industry,” said Herbert Guckenberger, Siemens A&D manager, Electronics Production. “One of the key benefits of working with Asymtek is that their technology is field proven, so we are confident their equipment is capable of running the processes we require.”
The Siemens GWE is part of the Motion Control systems (MC) Division. MC offers automation systems and services for machine tools, crane equipment, as well as production machines. At the Erlanger location, over 900 employees produce CNC controllers and drives for such applications. Customers come from the sectors of tool machines, robot technology and special machines, as well as from the mechanical engineering sectors packaging, textiles, plastics, printing, presses, wood/glass/ceramics/stones. The products are also in use in the general Motion Control applications, such as converting and handling or industrial crane equipment.
Asymtek®, a world leader in automated fluid dispensing and pioneer of jetting technology, designs and manufactures a full line of dispensing and conformal coating systems for semiconductor package and printed circuit board assembly as well as automotive, medical, aerospace, disk drive, flat panel display, optoelectronic, appliance and other precision industrial manufacturing applications.
