SMT dispensing products have the potential to process a vast variety of chemistries that comprise viscous or abrasive materials, irrespective of slight changes in these materials due  to atmospheric conditions. These dispensing, coating and curing systems are ideal for  selective coating, potting, beading, and meter-mix dispensing applications. Apart from that, they are also suitable for batch or inline operations, and are designed for high accuracy and demanding applications.

PCBs require a range of equipment for diverse procedures such as dispensing, coating and curing. All these processes go on simultaneously, especially in batch operations for bulk manufacturing. Technology applications these days require top-notch coating and dispensing products that ensure high accuracy and repeatability.

Some of the latest SMT dispensing and coating machines launched by leading companies are listed below.

Model: Camalot Prodigy; Manufacturer: ITW EAE
Speed, stability, and precision are hallmarks of the Camalot Prodigy automated dispensing systems from ITW EAE, USA. Innovative gantry designs in smaller, more compact footprints enable rapid acceleration for faster throughput, while at the same time providing stability that enables precision for applications ranging from solder paste and under-fill to adhesive dispensing and advanced ‘jetting’ techniques. Camalot systems offer two types of auger pumps, both controlled with a precise servo drive system. The 635SD series is typically used for finer feature dots and lines of highly viscose materials. The 680SD pumps deliver high flow rates and also incorporate a patented positive shutoff that eliminates dripping of lower viscosity materials. For highly abrasive materials, both pump systems offer  more wear-resistant carbide auger screws.

Key features:

  • High-speed and accurate dispensing
  • Large board capability
  • Controlled heating for repeatable processes
  • Plug-and-play architecture
  • Independent dual head
  • Synchronous dual head mode
  • Automatic vision alignment
  • Pipeline conveyor mode
  • Benchmark user interface with FlipChip Calculator software

Model: Vortik; Manufacturer: Nordson ASY MTEK
The Vortik series of pumps incorporates progressive cavity pump technology in a fully integrated dispensing system solution, complete with process controls for mass flow
control and a patent-pending Automated Ratio Control (ARC) system for mixing two-component fluids. Three pump families in the Vortik series—VPs, VPm, and VPg— are based upon general volume ranges, and each includes models for dispensing one-component (1K) and twocomponent (2K) fluids. In addition, changes in speed or volumetric output are logged, providing good traceability.Key features:

  • VPs pumps come with a flow rate of 0.2 microlitres per second, and delivers the smallest depositions of 1- and 2-component fluids
  • The VPm and VPg pumps dispense volumes from 2 to 400 microlitres/second for  applications in electronics package assembly and automotive electronics
  • Dispensing is faster during production because no fluid refill cycle is needed
