Nordson ASYMTEK, a Nordson company, a global leader in dispensing, jetting, and coating equipment and technologies, announces that it will demonstrate its Helios™ SD-960 Series Automated Fluid Dispensing System at Bondexpo, Stuttgart, Germany, in Hall 6, stand 6425. The Helios dispenser deposits single- (1K) and two-component (2K) materials, such as abrasive thermal interface materials (TIM), silicones, epoxies, and greases. Applications include electronic and PCB assembly that requires sealing, gasketing, potting, and structural adhesives/staking for automotive, avionics, aerospace & military electronics, consumer electronics/telecom, and/or industrial products. Bondexpo is being held at Messe Stuttgart in Stuttgart, Germany, from October 7-10, 2019.
“The Helios dispenser is successfully dispensing large- to mid-sized fluid volumes in applications where accuracy and performance are critical. With integrated valves and mixers, the Helios system offers high levels of flexibility with software programming and process control typically found in precision dispensers designed for smaller volumes applied in microelectronics,” said Almar Thewissen, product manager for Nordson ASYMTEK.
The Helios system can be equipped with dispense valves or 1K or 2K fluid systems. Volumetric 2K metering with servo control provides a highly controlled mix ratio that ensures correct fluid characteristics. Being able to dispense thermal interface materials reduces the use of pre-cut thermal pads, makes changes in the production process easier and more flexible, and reduces costs. Proven dispensing software with free, programmable dispense geometries eliminates the need to hire a programmer to make changes.
The Helios system accommodates a variety of bulk fluid supply options. Various size reservoirs, fluid regulators, booster pumps, level sensors, and more can be selected to fit specific fluid and application requirements. The fluid system controls are integrated into the machine platform and controlled by dedicated dispensing software.
