Conformal Coating Suppliers In the Spotlight: MG Chemicals

MG Chemicals has partnered SCH Technologies and Diamond SCH in their coating service to provide RFI / EMI subcontract Coating Services in Europe and Asia

RFI / EMI shielding of electronic printed circuit boards (PCBs) is a crucial part of the electronics assembly process and the correct application is crucial. Subcontract Coating Service houses therefore play a key role in applying the shielding coatings to the PCBs and it was logical for MG to work with Diamond SCH and SCH Technologies.

Nexus Conformal Coating Spotlight Service: UV Control from Modus using AOI: Reliable and at the same time optimising the process.

Modus high-tech electronics in Willich Germany has developed scanner systems for the automatic optical inspection of conformal coatings so optimising the process.

For security reasons some sensitive electronic automotive components are protected by a special coating against humidity and clear liquids. This sealing is relevant for security reasons and therefore very important.

With an AOI it is possible to check on the quality of the application of the transparent and almost invisible conformal coating. So one optimises the process of the application.

The functionality of safety critical electronic circuit boards in humid and wet surroundings can be vital in an extreme situation. To guarantee the reliability of the circuit board in practice a conformal coating is applied to the already assembled PC boards.The quality of the application method can have an impact.

Subsequently the perfect quality of the coating which is nearly invisible has to be proved reliably. AOI systems control whether the conformal coating has been correctly applicated to the right areas and not in the wrong areas.

For this purpose there are UV particles in the varnish which fluoresce under UV light. But because of the shiny conformal coating surface slight reflections can occur. This can lead to mistakes in the image interpretation. With this background Modus have developed a solution that recognizes splash of varnish from a size of 50 microns even on bright gold contacts.

This was made possible by fine tuning of the LED lighting that takes place to form the perfect match with the Modus software for the scanner. Unlike conventional camera systems, visual inspection performed by the scanner with UV light overcomes the problems of shadows casual by large components due to parallax free lens used (transformers etc). Its also possible to use the differences in the intensity of the coating to be used to control the thickness of the layer of coating.

The Modus Systems offer Process optimisation from the quality control of the scanner systems for UV conformal coating inspection. They provide an highly efficient and additional benefit and the test results allow possible conclusions for adjustment of the coating machines.

Nexus Conformal Coating Spotlight Service: MG Chemicals exhibit at Farnborough International Aerospace (FIA) Show in UK in partnership with SCH Technologies

Canadian based company, MG Chemicals, has invested significantly in overseas marketing this year by targeting key exhibitions such as Farnborough in July, Nepcon Shenzhen in August and Electronica India in September.  The FIA show, with its 1300 military exhibitors are exactly the customers MG wish to target with their specialist electronics materials and believe their products are exactly what customers need.

Further, with a new range of materials to be launched shortly, MG see the FIA Show as a great launch pad for their new partnership with SCH Technologies. As a technical expert in conformal coating materials, it was easy for SCH to work with MG and their range of products without compromising on independence from conformal coatings.

Dr Lee Hitchens, Technical Director for SCH, explained the decision:

“SCH are a technical based company providing solutions to companies rather than a catalog based sales approach. We have built up long term relationships with customers by providing the right conformal coating solutions for their product. MG’s products allow us to offer our customers additional ranges of materials whilst crucially remaining neutral with the conformal coatings side of the business”.

Nexus Conformal Coating Spotlight Service: SCH building equipment in North America, Europe and Asia as part of licensing agreements with partners

UK Company, SCH Technologies, have put in place licensing agreements to manufacture their batch equipment in North America and Asia.

The agreement, which inludes among other items conformal coating spray booths, inspection booths, drying cabinets, UV conveyors and dip coating systems, allows much faster turnaround times for the customer which occur when shipping around the world and the elimination of problematic shipping costs which can often double the price of the system.

The agreement was formed earlier this year when US Conformal Coating Services company Diamond MT agreed to partner with UK based SCH Technologies to begin to form a global conformal coating partnership across Centrial & North America, Europe and Asia. The two companies quickly harmonised their coating service businesses, with Diamond MT offering SCH’s equipment range and SCH arranging to bring in Parylene Coating into the UK. Also, Diamond SCH, the China division of the partnership, has also been recently launched in Shenzhen China .

Dr Lee Hitchens, Technical Director of SCH Technologies explains

“With shipping time and costs causing barriers to sales in the USA and Asia it was clear we had to change the way we sold the systems. They are great value products but become expensive with the shipping charges. Our partnership with Diamond as a global force allows us to acheive the same quality but with much faster lead times and prices that ensure the customers get a great deal”
