Swiss manufacturer of production systems for electronic assembly and packaging, Essemtec, will highlight its dispensing solution for both the electronics and medical industries in Hall A3, Stand 322 at the productronica 2021 trade fair in Munich from 16–19 November.
“The archerfish, with its scientific abilities – speed, precision and cleverness – inspired Essemtec to develop its solder paste jetting solution,” the company explained. “The archerfish waits for its prey in the salty brackish water of the mangrove forests. Just below the water surface, it observes its prey, calculates the refraction of the water jet, calculates the distance and the environment of its target and fires a targeted water jet at its victim. Hit by the jet, the victim falls into the water, where the hunter waits and eats his prey with pleasure.
“Just like the archerfish, the integration of the VDST valve gives Essemtec’s state-of-the-art machine platforms the ability to jet solder paste with dot sizes from 200–800 μm after adjustment of the settings. The Archerfish offers freely selectable and combinable settings of jet parameters for optimal adaptation to customer requirements and characteristics of the dispensing material. The dynamic shockwave technology allows it to jet several hundred shots within just a second with high accuracy and repeatability.”
“The ultimate paste jetting technologies developed by Essemtec is the latest major add-on in our unique All-In-One value proposition,” said Franz-Xaver Strueby, CEO Essemtec Group. “Fast prototyping and NPI require innovation to cope with the current and future industry challenges and the last 18 months market adoption is confirming the value of the Essemtec business solutions.”
