Thursday, November 21, 2013: Essemtec, the Swiss manufacturer of production systems for electronic assembly and packaging, announces that it was awarded a 2013 Global Technology Award in the category of Dispensing Equipment for its Scorpion high-speed jet dispenser. The award was presented to the company during a Tuesday, November 12, 2013 ceremony that took place at the New Munich Trade Fair Centre in Munich, Germany during productronica.
The Scorpion fully automatic jetting system sets new standards in dispensing technology and improves overall equipment efficiency. Absolute throughput (up to 100’000 dots/h) is maximized with piezo jetting valves that enable the jetting of fluids over a wide range of viscosity with speeds of up to 800 Hz. Wastage of expensive material is minimized with a fluid box of less than 70 micro litres. There is no tubing to connect the fluid to the jet valve and hence messy cleaning and maintenance operations are minimized (within 5-10 minutes).
Setting up new recipes is quick and easy with Essemtec’s brand new eDIS software that offers context sensitive help. Point and touch features are intuitive to learn and programming of dots, lines or various shapes is a breeze, while CAD import also is supported. Processes are developed quickly thanks to a library of “best known parameters” for a wide range of common fluids.
The Scorpion is a highly versatile system and can be equipped with up to four valves or pumps, including Piezo jet valves, solder paste jet valves, Archimedian screw valves, time pressure valves and slider valves to accommodate virtually all applications. These include encapsulation, dam & fill, underfill, LED cavity, conductive adhesive, solder paste, phosphor silicon cavity fill and many more.
Premiering in 2005, the Global Technology Awards program is an annual celebration of product excellence in electronics surface mount assembly. Premier products based on the finest examples of creative advancement in technology are chosen by a distinguished panel of industry experts.
