ACDi Adds Conformal Coating Services

Reading time ( words)

ACDi recently announced the availability of in-house conformal coating services with the purchase of a Nordson Asymtek Select Coat SL940E machine. The conformal coating system has been installed at the company’s headquarters in Frederick, MD.

With conformal coating available in-house, there is a reduction in quote turnaround, cost savings by eliminating an additional vendor, and an added sense of security knowing who is performing the work. 
Internal training was taken by a staff of Asymtek certified trainers to ensure a strict adherence to quality standards, as well as cross training for continuity of operations.

"Simplifying the process of PCB purchasing and assembly is an on-going goal," says Bill Hornbaker, ACDi's CEO. "With the addition of the conformal coating system, ACDi is adding an additional level of service to our clients complementing our full, turn-key offerings."

Conformal coating protects printed circuit boards from environmental harshness, like moisture and contaminants, by applying thin layers of material to a PCB. The coating “conforms” to the landscape of the board and acts as a type of insulation, essentially extending the life of the circuitry.
