What are the key fundamental challenges in conformal coating production to help you achieve acceptable production targets?

Part 3 of this series of articles in which this week we examine how process control influences the production line

Setting up the Perfect Coating Facility.

The Launch of a New series of articles looking at what you need to make the various sections of your coating production line world class

Surface Modifiers: Are they a viable solution to conformal coating Processing?

A review of the next generation of Fluorochemical “thin film”polymer coatings that are generally applied a lot thinner than traditional conformal coatings.  These coatings have been around for a long time but they really are making traction in the industry. We look at why this is happening and the pro’s and con’s of these materials versus traditional coatings.

Conformal Coating Troubleshooting: Solving your conformal coating defect issues on the line.

An in-depth series of articles which looks at conformal coating defects that occur in processing and why they happen and how to solve the issues.

So, plenty of great articles and lots of information to help you in your conformal coating process.

Conformal Coating Materials and How they affect Production

Conformal Coating Bubble defectsNexus has highlighted six critical areas that affect coating production and reduce performance on the line. These are the machines, materials, staff, process control, upstream processes and customer requirements.

In a series of six articles over the next six weeks Nexus will attempt to highlight these six key areas for production and how the production line can be improved to achieve acceptable levels of defects.

This week Dr Lee Hitchens will consider the conformal coating material itself and how it affects the selective conformal coating production process.

Machines in Conformal Coating and How they affect Production

Conformal Coating Bubble defectsArticle by Dr Lee Hitchens

When I am asked to examine a conformal coating production line, and give my opinion on its effectiveness to produce the right work, I can be confronted with a wide range of setups. This can be from the most basic robotic system that coats a simple pattern and the operator has to control all the variables. Or, it can be a state of the art system with every known option present ultimately attempting to control the machine process. I say attempt because ultimately we are dealing with conformal coating liquids, people and the production environment. These are variables that affect the ability of the machine to do its job effectively and completely dependent on each of these factors.

This article is one of six of the series, “What are the Key Fundamental Challenges in Conformal Coating Production to help you achieve Acceptable Production Targets?”

Conformal coating production is like any other part of the process. There are key fundamental challenges to be met to ensure targets and acceptable defect rates are set. However, understanding the variables that affect production and how these contribute to poor coating performance is critical to ensuring a high quality, efficient coating process.

Nexus has highlighted six critical areas that affect coating production and reduce performance on the line. These are the machines, materials, staff, process control, upstream processes and customer requirements.

In a series of six articles Nexus will attempt to highlight these six key areas for production and how the production line can be improved to achieve acceptable levels of defects.

NEW Conformal coating materials launched in India by Trinity Coatings

Trinity Coatings are proud to announce the launch of their range of Conformal coating materials with their distributor SCH Coating Solutions PVT Ltd in India.

SCH, a conformal coating solutions company, has opened new offices in Hyderabad, India, to directly target the Indian market.

Jonathan Jett, CEO of Trinity explains:

“The Asian Electronics market demands high quality conformal coatings at a competitive price.  By offering the Bright Shield Conformal coatings on the Asian market for the first time, we are bridging the gap between quality and price by offering Indian manufactures the best in conformal coating while reducing their spend cost.   With Bright shield coatings, high quality at a competitive price is possible.  Trinity also recognizes the difficulty in stocking in India and purchasing directly from warehousing there in Rupees. SCH and Trinity have committed to have inventory available for customer users when they need it and not have to wait for incoming shipments.”
