Gentherm Selects Nordson ASYMTEK Equipment for Their Conformal Coating Lines


Reading time ( words)

Nordson ASYMTEK, a Nordson company, was selected by Gentherm as their conformal coating equipment supplier. Gentherm is the global market leader and developer of innovative thermal management technologies. They were introducing new products to their manufacturing line and needed a conformal coating system that could meet production requirements. The new equipment needed to provide more selectivity, accuracy, and increased volume capabilities than was required for previous product builds. After evaluating suppliers, Gentherm selected Nordson ASYMTEK's Select Coat SL-940 conformal coating system for their conformal coating line.

"After reviewing Nordson ASYMTEK's equipment specifications and applicator options, we decided to purchase the Select Coat SL-940E conformal coating system based on the following capabilities: more coating flexibility with the SC-300 applicator, tighter control around keep-out areas with the SC-400 applicator, and user friendly, programmable software," commented Mike Renneboog, Manufacturing Manager at Gentherm Electronics. 

Gentherm uses five SL-940 conformal coating systems, equipped with SC-300, SC-350, and SC-400 applicators, that are used in four manufacturing lines. The systems support the production of automotive modules, RV controls, medical devices, and other consumer electronic controls. Nordson ASYMTEK's equipment has enabled Gentherm to overcome manufacturing challenges and has added more flexibility and yield to their manufacturing processes. The SL-940 conformal coating systems offer a wide variety of options to provide the highest quality and productivity for automated coating processes. The systems operate at high-speed, high-accuracy, high-productivity, and yield, offering the ultimate solution to conformal coating production.

Is Your EMS Partner Up to Speed With WEEE 'Open Scope?'

E-waste encompasses a myriad of "unseen" metals, semi-metals, and chemical compounds that are found inside circuit boards, wires, and electrical connections. If not handled correctly, chemicals—such as cadmium, barium, lithium, lead, mercury, and beryllium—can present a significant health risk through direct contact, the inhalation of toxic fumes, or the build-up of toxins in water, soil, and food products.

Conformal Coatings

While conformal coatings may have been something of an afterthought at the front of the design process, that can no longer be the case. Conformal coatings are now a critical part of any board assembly that might be subjected to challenging conditions. But coatings can also contribute to increased mean time between failure in any conditions, even environmentally controlled environments.

As MRP and ERP functions follow computing trends and start to migrate into the cloud, a fundamental question is being raised as to whether these are still the right tools to use in today’s modern Industry 4.0 driven factory, or whether these need to evolve, be enhanced, or even replaced in order to meet the more extreme requirements of operational flexibility, as well as cope with volatile material availability in the market.
