High-accuracy fluid dispenser

23 October 2019 Manufacturing / Production Technology, Hardware & Services

Nordson Asymtek recently introduced the Forte fluid dispensing system. The Forte series combines high-accuracy fluid dispensing with increased throughput and productivity in a narrow footprint to handle applications such as flex circuit and printed circuit board assembly, electromechanical assembly, MEMS, underfill, precise coating, and encapsulation.

With a highly stable chassis and new electrical and mechanical architectures, the Forte series claims units per hour (UPH) gains of 20-50% higher productivity through swift acceleration and improved motion control. A dual-valve-ready design allows two high-frequency IntelliJet jetting systems to be run simultaneously to further boost UPH and quality outcomes – reducing dispense time by half.

Moving with 1,5 G acceleration, dual IntelliJet jets dispense fluid volumes quickly, while the patented real-time skew correction automatically adjusts for workpiece rotational skew. The added stability in the chassis accommodates fast motion in the x, y, and z axes without sacrificing placement accuracy.

Nordson Asymtek’s Canvas software delivers a completely new interface that simplifies programming and provides powerful insight and control over the dispensing process. Graphical programming lets the operator scan a workpiece, develop their program on- or off-line, and simulate the dispensing results on a virtual canvas. Guided wizards provide easy step-by-step setup instructions and quick-reference graphing and data tiles allow control of how system sensor and process data are displayed.

The integrated dual-valve service station, patented closed-loop process controls, and nozzle cleaning rail reduce operator maintenance and intervention. The Forte system has a space-saving 600 mm (conveyor rail end-to-end) x 1374 mm footprint.
