Gentherm taps Nordson ASYMTEK for conformal coating lines
EMS provider Gentherm selected NORDSON Asymtek as their conformal coating equipment supplier.
“After reviewing Nordson ASYMTEK’s equipment specifications and applicator options, we decided to purchase the Select Coat® SL-940E conformal coating system based on the following capabilities: more coating flexibility with the SC-300 applicator, tighter control around keep-out areas with the SC-400 applicator, and user friendly, programmable software,” Gentherm Manufacturing Manager Mike Renneboog said in a press release. Gentherm uses five SL-940 conformal coating systems, equipped with SC-300, SC-350, and SC-400 applicators, that are used in four manufacturing lines. The systems support the production of automotive modules, RV controls, medical devices, and other consumer electronic controls, the release stated. Nordson ASYMTEK’s equipment has enabled Gentherm to overcome manufacturing challenges and has added more flexibility and yield to their manufacturing processes. Gentherm employs 13,000 people in 13 countries, including the U.S., Canada, and Mexico, with world headquarters in Northville, Michigan.
