Nordson Electronics Solutions Introduces New Helios System


Reading time ( words)

Nordson Electronics Solutions, a global leader in electronics manufacturing technologies, introduces a system-solution for dispensing single-component (1K) thermal interface materials by integrating the ASYMTEK Helios SD-960 Series fluid dispensing platform with the new FS-EP1 Fluid Supply/Feeding System One-Gallon Pail Pump.

Single-component thermal interface materials (TIMs), often used as gap fillers in electronics manufacturing, are highly viscous and abrasive, making them difficult to feed from the original packaging to the dispense valve. Facility air pressure and chunk pumps are commonly used to transfer these thick materials. However, these are not long-term solutions because the air pressure is often insufficient or the pump wears out faster, leading to premature failure. The new FS-EP1 pail pump pushes material to the dispense valve using a closed-hydraulic system. Low shearing of the material ensures that highly conductive thermal gap fillers do not separate, and material properties remain unaffected. There are no moving parts in contact with the gap filler, and no moving parts outside the pump enclosure, not even in the fluid line.

Equipment details:

- The new FS-EP1 pump is designed to make high-performance bulk dispensing safe and easy to maintain and to minimize down-time. The pump enclosure securely holds a one-gallon pail at the operator’s waist-level so that it is simple to load and remove. When it’s time to change out the pail, a semi-automated air-bleed routine with priming valve ensures that air is removed from the system, operating behind the closed, safety-interlocked doors. This operation helps to maintain safety while minimizing down-time and material waste. Other features, such as the highly durable hydraulic pump, the intuitive operator interface, and the quick, tool-free seal changeover, establish new benchmarks in performance and maintenance.

- The Helios dispensing platform handles medium- and large-volume dispensing applications -- typically in diameters larger than 1mm -- that include many single- and two-component fluid materials and pastes, like highly abrasive TIM. Helios dispenser processes are controlled by dedicated Fluidmove® fluid dispensing software that includes user-programmable dispense geometries.

Barry Matties and Nolan Johnson speak with Joe O’Neil, CEO of Green Circuits, about something that seems to be on everyone’s minds—the rising cost of, well, everything. Joe’s background in marketing and finance, as well as his leadership at Green Circuits, positions him as an expert on managing costs related to labor, facilities, lead times, employee training, and the future of the industry. But what rising costs actually surprised him? This is a must-read for us all.

‘Trust Me, I Have Your Chips Right Here’

01/17/2022 | Michael Ford, Aegis Software Corp.
When making the decision to purchase materials, there is a strong benefit from a trust in the supplier. When materials are in short supply, however, there is no time to establish trust with a new supplier, especially when it’s the only one that can fulfill a requirement. While the manufacturing world is seeking methods to find trust with previously unknown suppliers, there are also those who are getting cleverer at disguising their often-nefarious activities—ones that could bring catastrophic results. In the real world, how can supply chain trust be established and maintained, or is it safer to assume that everyone is out to get us?
