Speed, accuracy and repeatability in the application of adhesives, protective coatings and other liquids can present problems to technology manufacturers, especially in a world where miniaturisation is a trend. Some insights will be given at our seminar Adhesive & Coating Dispensing – Meeting the Challenges of Technology Manufacturing at the FAST Exhibition on 22nd April, Silverstone Circuit. During the session, you will hear about equipment selection factors and choices, process validation and quality assurance, and the latest positive displacement and jetting technologies. The knowledge gained can impact on product quality and cost reduction.
The workshop will explore the idea that adhesives and protective materials can only do their job if applied in the correct quantity and location. Couple that need with the demands of production speed, the ever finer tolerances and repeatability required for quality, and the increasing miniaturisation of technology-based products and the challenge gets tricky. Materials may have multiple parts, filler content, difficult rheology or limited working life. Deposit volumes can be fractions of a millilitre. The process needs to be robust, consistent and able to be validated.
