Conformal coating system to boost Electrolube’s capabilities

4 November 2015 Manufacturing / Production Technology, Hardware & Services

Electrolube has made a significant addition to its laboratory facilities with the procurement of a top-of-the-range conformal coating system. The company is confident the new investment will provide an industry-leading facility for product development and customer support.

The Asymtek Select Coat SL-940E selective conformal coating system, equipped with both film coat and spray valves, is an advanced conveyorised platform providing the highest quality and productivity for automated coating processes. Enabling a wide range of conformal coating process parameters to be monitored for both statistical process control and traceability purposes, the new SL-940E system will have three key laboratory roles:

Product development: Many of Electrolube’s customers now prefer to use selective coating methods in order to minimise their materials and process costs, and to meet specific design issues. The company is keen to ensure that new products coming on-stream are fully optimised in terms of viscosity, chemical composition and associated work time, as appropriate for selective coating methodologies.

Process support: Having such advanced production grade equipment in a laboratory setting will enable Electrolube to further strengthen its capacity to replicate customer issues and provide the very best support and guidance on product and process selection.

Customer support: The new equipment will have an important role in engaging customers in product trials. Customers will be given independent access to Electrolube’s facilities, bringing their samples to the laboratory in order to evaluate the performance of new products, application techniques or processes. In this way, later disruptions to production due to unsuitable product and/or process selection can be avoided.
