A variety of coating equipment is available for use in the conformal coating process. The most important for liquid coatings are described below.Read More
Stripping or removal of unwanted conformal coating from a printed circuit board (PCB) can be a relatively simple process or a very messy difficult job. It does depend on several factors including the type of conformal coating you need to remove, where the coating is found and the type of components on the board.
Last time, we discussed the general requirements necessary to open a conformal coating facility. Now I will discuss the equipment that is required in order to have a properly operating facility.
Diamond-MT has joined the Nexus supplier database which has launched June 1st 2012.
One potential issue with considering selective conformal coating with a robotic conformal coating system is misaligned components on the PCB which can potentially damage the spray heads which are moving along a set pattern on the board and the components themselves be damaged as they travel. Spray heads are one of the most critical parts on the spray robot. Repairing damage can get costly.
Diamond-MT is proud to announce that it will be exhibiting at the Showcase for Commerce in Johnstown, Pa through May 23-24, 2012. Diamond-MT will be featuring its parylene coating services and conformal coating services as well as conformal coating equipment and consultation and training services.
Technology varies between the platforms and the valves but essentially they achieve the same result. The goal is to deposit coating where you want it, removing the issue of masking which is required in batch processing with dip or spray booths.
Diamond-MT is proud to announce that it will be exhibiting at MD&M East in Philadelphia through May 22-24, 2012. Diamond-MT will be featuring its parylene coating services and conformal coating services as well as conformal coating equipment and consultation and training services.
Depending on your application, choosing to use conformal coating equipment can be a very wise choice for maximum efficiency. I would recommend use of the conformal coating process decision worksheet to determine your coating needs and whether you should outsource conformal coating prior to purchasing a machine.

How to get Repeatable Conformal Coating Thickness
Measuring your conformal coating thickness is one thing, however making it a reliable and repeatable thickness is something else all together. There are three main ways of conformal coating application where a repeatable thickness can be obtained, however, a fair degree of training and skills are needed to achieve this.
Conformal Coating Process Decision Worksheet
A common objection we receive from potential customers is that they perform conformal coating in-house as opposed to out-sourcing the coating to a vendor. Many factors are often overlooked when it comes to conformal coating, so let's go through a process decision worksheet that takes into account many variables before a final decision is reached.
