Adhesive & Coating Dispensing – Meeting the Challenges of Technology Manufacturing

10:30 - 11:10

Adhesives and protective materials can only do their job if applied in the correct quantity and location. Couple that need with the demands of production speed, the ever finer tolerances and repeatability required for quality, and the increasing miniaturisation of technology-based products, and the challenge gets tricky. Materials may have multiple parts, filler content, difficult rheology or limited working life. Deposit volumes can be fractions of a millilitre. The process needs to be robust, consistent and validatable. This seminar will address the variables to consider when specifying application equipment, and review some of the latest technologies to help meet the challenges.


1. Dispensing technology selection factors
2. Equipment choices
3. Advantages and limitations of different dispensing methods
4. Process validation & quality assurance
5. The latest positive displacement and jetting technologies

Having spent 25+ years working with adhesives and protective materials in technology manufacturing, Peter Swanson and his colleagues have shared the experiences of many customers’ application projects. By melding the engineering expertise of the team and from a range of leading edge suppliers and partners, they deliver adhesive systems which meet the needs of the sector
