Designing a conformal coating production line


When I consider what is required for a conformal coating process I first consider the trinity of conformal coating.

That is the circuit board design, the application process and the coating material to be used.

This is what I call the holistic approach to the conformal coating selection process.

Designing the conformal coating production line

Once this task has been complete and I have the material and application method defined and it suits my circuit board I can then consider the production line as a whole.

For traditional liquid conformal coatings there are seven key stages when considering a conformal coating production line.

Not all stages may be used.

But, each stage should be considered for use when setting up a new conformal coating process.

The seven key stages:

  • Cleaning
  • Priming
  • Masking
  • Application Methods
  • De-Masking and finishing
  • Drying and Curing
  • Inspection

These seven stages combined give you the conformal coating production line.
