Nordson ASYMTEK's Forte Series Increases Fluid Dispensing Precision, Accuracy, and Throughput


Reading time ( words)

Nordson ASYMTEK, a Nordson company and global leader in dispensing, jetting, and coating equipment and technology, introduces its Forte Series fluid dispensing system. The Forte Series combines high accuracy fluid dispensing with increased throughput and productivity in a narrow footprint to handle applications such as flex circuit and printed circuit board assembly, electro-mechanical assembly, MEMS, underfill, precise coating, and encapsulation.

"To meet our customers' needs for reducing total cost-of-ownership while delivering the highest quality and production yield, Nordson ASYMTEK has fused technologies from our most advanced fluid dispensing system, proven features from our top-selling dispensing platform, and latest-generation Canvas software in the new Forte Series," explained Garrett Wong, senior product manager, Nordson ASYMTEK. "It used to be the old trade-off between speed, performance, and price, but with Forte, that's definitely not the case."

With a highly stable chassis and new electrical and mechanical architectures, the Forte Series delivers units per hour (UPH) gain of 20-50% higher productivity through swift acceleration and improved motion control. A dual-valve-ready design allows you to simultaneously run two high-frequency IntelliJet® Jetting Systems to further boost UPH and quality outcomes - reducing dispense time by half. Moving with blazing fast 1.5G acceleration, dual IntelliJet jets dispense highly accurate fluid volumes quickly, while the patented real-time skew correction automatically adjusts for workpiece rotational skew. The added stability in the chassis accommodates fast motion in the x, y, and z axes without sacrificing placement accuracy.

Nordson ASYMTEK's Canvas® software delivers a completely new interface that simplifies programming and provides powerful insight and control over the dispensing process. Graphical programming lets you scan a workpiece, develop your program on or offline, and simulate the dispensing results on a virtual canvas. Guided wizards provide easy step-by-step setup instructions and quick-reference graphing and data tiles allow control of how system sensor and process data are displayed.

The integrated dual-valve service station, patented closed-loop process controls, and nozzle cleaning rail reduce operator maintenance and intervention. Along with Forte's space-saving 600 mm (conveyor rail end-to-end) x 1374 mm (23.6 in. x 54.1 in.) footprint, Nordson ASYMTEK once again delivers a complete package for high quality, low-maintenance, and reliable dispensing with competitive low total cost-of-ownership.

See the Forte system and discuss your application with the Nordson ASYMTEK experts at NEPCON Asia (formerly South China), being held at the Shenzhen Exhibition & Convention Center, Shenzhen, China, August 28-30 in booth 1H20.
