Saline Lectronics Invests in a Stinger Dispensing System


Reading time ( words)

Saline Lectronics, Inc. recently installed the Stinger on its DEK Horizon 03iX printer used on a high-volume SMT Line. The company plans to add the Stinger to its other DEK printers in the future.

The Stinger is a low-volume dispense module that can be attached to the camera carriage of a standard DEK printer. It provides dual functionality to the print platform for customers who require a number of glue dots to be dispensed on a mixed technology board for example. The Stinger eliminates the need to dispense adhesive by hand.

The Stinger enables Lectronics to automatically dispense adhesive without the need to purchase a separate, standalone dispensing system. Lectronics will utilize the Stinger for PCBs that are ex-posed to harsh or critical environments, as well as those with switches or connectors that require adhesive to better secure them on the PCB. Lectronics and its customers will greatly benefit from the tool’s precise repeatable dispensing.

“The Stinger’s in-line automated dispensing system will save an enormous amount of hand work and labor time due to its precision and repeatability,” commented Jon Hood, SMT Manager. "It will free up technicians to better tend to our SMT lines, and keep production running smoothly and efficiently.”

In Part 1 of this conversation, Sagi Reuven— business development manager at Mentor, a Siemens Business—makes the case that smart factory implementations must start with traditional process analysis and improvement before the data capture process is useful. He also covers how sometimes the key to utilizing Industry 4.0 comes from a change in mindset rather than a drastic change or investment in new equipment or processes.

"There’s a need for flexible solutions, so people are trying to make the most of the equipment that they buy, and they want to have the equipment that’s able to be flexible in scale with what it is that they’re looking for," said Camille Sybert of Nordson Electronics Solutions. "We have customers asking about future capabilities that they might not be ready for right now, but they want to know that it’s something that can be easily integrated into their processes in the future, as they’re in a position to better be able to do so."

"One of the biggest challenges for me selling is educating customers that they can generate oxygen and nitrogen on their own for up to 90% savings versus getting trucked in deliveries," said Mike Montesi of On Site Gas Systems. "It’s all about education because 98–99% of customers are used to the high cost of delivered gases, where we can separate it on-site with their own equipment, and the payback is typically under a year."
