|Nexus are running a number of conformal coating webinar events over the winter period on all aspects of conformal coating, design, inspection and quality control.
The series of four online training webinars will cover the following topics and last 90 min each:
|Conformal Coating Guide to Design, Application and Reliability – 12th November 2012
Application Methods, Materials for Field Reliability – 10th December 2012
Inspection and Quality Control of Coated Boards – 7th January 2013
Rework, Repair and in Process Applications – 4th February 2013
|Please click online conformal coating training webinars for further information.|
Design, fabrication and reliability of advanced circuit boards
Solder paste application and alloy selection for high density interconnection
Soldering of high density packages
Cleaning and conformal coating
Component packaging developments
Mitigation techniques for tin whiskers
Reliability and testing regimes
Novel materials, bonding, processing, packaging techniques and technologies
Each Month Nexus will profile an influential person who either works directly in the conformal coating industry or impacts on the area through his work or position.
Mel Popovich, a parylene expert and owner of Diamond MT, a conformal coating subcontract service in North America, discusses why Nexus is a great tool for suppliers and users alike.

World Wide Conformal Coating Workshops Tour
Nexus are to hold a series of workshops starting in October 2012 across Asia, Europe and North America. These workshops will address all of the main topics connected to Conformal Coating, providing education and cutting edge knowledge to engineers concerned with the process.
Areas to be covered in the series of Conformal Coating Workshops include:
- Understanding Liquid Conformal Coating Materials & their Selection
- Parylene Processes– All you need to Know
- Equipment & Application Processes
- Masking and Inspection Processes
- Process Control of the Conformal Coating line
- Troubleshooting the Process
- Reliability – How to Measure how Reliable your Electronics really are.
- Lead Free Processing and Conformal Coating
- Cleanliness & Cleaning
These One day workshops will be held at a range of venues starting in Asia in October. Conformal Coating Users can attend and view a series of presentations throughout the day plus speak with all the relevant suppliers at a table top section.

One of the most important variables in conformal coating that can cause chaos in your processes. What does viscosity affect and how can you control it in your conformal coating assembly processing?
The Nexus How To Guides are a range of Technical Bulletins that will be available weekly.
Each How To Guide will be initially launched through the FREE subscription service. The Guides will then be available for access online here below. There will also be a Printer Friendly version and a PDF version for easy download if required.

Nexus brings together the accumulated knowledge of a group of conformal coating and electronics material dispensing consultants who provide a unique service, focussed on helping electronics manufacturing clients improve their conformal coating and electronics materials processes.
Nexus operate across North America, Europe and Asia and can provide a unique perspective to the rapidly growing conformal coating and electronics materials industry. Expertise is held in liquid and parylene coating, capital equipment sales and specifications and material, equipment and process specification, troubleshooting and training.
One of the founder members of Nexus is Dr Lee Hitchens PhD who has worked within the conformal coating industry for over 18 years. Until recently Dr Hitchens’ work included sales of conformal coating materials and capital robotic equipment in all areas of the world. However, he decided to form Nexus and become independent.
Dr Hitchens sums up Nexus,
“The demands on conformal coatings and the processes that apply them are becoming more and more complex with the exponential growth in electronics. Couple this with the knowledge gap and the lack of time to learn in most companies and you find a very difficult situation for most users.
Nexus is here to bridge the gap. Independent of all material and major capital equipment suppliers, our consultants can offer a unique perspective into conformal coating that users can tap into, as much or as little as needed. We can champion the user but also offer help to the supplier who needs to educate a rapidly growing market across the globe.”
Nexus3C offer an Ask the Experts FREE Service for conformal coating clients who require help with their coating processes, equipment, materials or any other issues.
Our professional consultants will answer with complete confidentiality.
