Nordson EFD, a Nordson company has just released a new guide, “Nordson EFD Solutions: Fluid Positioning & Precision Dispensing in Mobile Device and Wearables Manufacturing.” It features the innovative dispensing solutions available to help manufacturers meet growing consumer demand for thinner, lighter, and more sophisticated, yet durable electronic devices at lower costs.
The guide covers a number of applications common to the industry, including:
- Display applications such as bonding cover glass to LCDs and OLEDs
- Optical bonding and seal bonding with anisotropic conductive fluids
- Camera module applications such as frame bonding and IR cut filter bonding
- Microspeaker applications such as membrane bonding
- Hydrophobic coating during final assembly
- Conformal coating microchip leads and printed circuit boards (PCBs)
- Soldering RF shields onto MEMS microphones with dispensable solder paste
- Applying thermal compound to heat sinks for central processing units (CPUs)
Nordson EFD provides market-leading dispensing solutions ranging from needle valves that dispense micro-deposits as small as 0.15 mm in diameter to jet valves that meet tight tolerances in terms of precise, repeatable deposit volumes, dimensions, and patterns at speeds up to 1000Hz continuous.
When paired with EFD’s automated dispensing robots, which combine easy-to-use proprietary dispensing software with fully integrated vision systems and up to +/- 0.004 mm positional repeatability, it is possible to optimize production processes.
“At Nordson EFD, we leverage more than 50 years of fluid application knowledge in every precision dispensing solution we develop,” said Rhonda Mitchell, Global Marketing Communications Manager at Nordson EFD. “For the mobile devices and wearables industry, that knowledge results in exceptionally accurate, repeatable dispensing outcomes that meet the stringent requirements necessary to effectively meet consumer demand.”
About Nordson EFD
Nordson EFD designs and manufactures precision fluid dispensing systems for benchtop assembly processes and automated assembly lines. By enabling manufacturers to apply the same amount of adhesive, lubricant or other assembly fluid to every part, every time, EFD dispensing systems are helping companies in a wide variety of industries increase throughput, improve quality, and lower their production costs. Other fluid management capabilities include high-quality syringe barrels and cartridges for packaging one- and two-component materials, along with a wide variety of fittings, couplers and connectors for controlling fluid flow in medical, biopharmaceutical and industrial environments. The company is also a leading formulator of specialty solder pastes for dispensing and printing applications in the electronics industry.
