Application centres for dispensing and coating

23 October 2019 Manufacturing / Production Technology, Hardware & Services

With a larger global installed base of MYSmart and MY700 jet printing and dispensing systems, Mycronic is taking the next step in bringing its hands-on expertise closer to customers by establishing multiple new application centres for dispensing and coating in the US, Europe and Asia. The centres offer customers a complete service offering, from prototyping and process development to automation and software integration. They are designed to function as a practical interface between Mycronic and its customers, across industry sectors and among industry partners.

At a typical technical seminar for coating, the company bring together several leading manufacturers of coating and dispensing fluids and inspection systems to explore future demands in electronics protection. To date, the new centres have handled dozens of customer projects, with many more in the pipeline for 2019 – from advanced process control and traceability systems for automotive electronics manufacturers to new adhesive fluid trials for consumer electronics.

A number of process improvements have already resulted from several customer collaborations. One example is a pre-heat buffer conveyor which Mycronic developed for a customer, primarily to reduce energy consumption in the dispenser. By pre-heating the board up to ninety degrees, it also ensures a more stable process with a shorter cycle time.

Another service offering that has experienced strong customer demand is application development, where specialists from Mycronic help to optimise a particular board design for the dispense application, to reduce cycle times or to minimise production costs.

One of the pieces of equipment powering these innovations is the dual-head MY700 jet printer and jet dispenser, which enables smaller high-mix manufacturers to achieve high-quality solder deposits at high speeds, apply high-precision adhesive fluid deposits, or a combination of the two.

Mid-volume producers can ramp up speeds by combining two MY700s, using a dual large-dot ejector for higher throughput together with a dual small-dot ejector for more challenging precision deposits. High-volume stencil printer lines can benefit from the MY700 as part of an add-on program, which makes it possible to solve quality issues in challenging processes while simplifying stencil designs.
