PVA, a global supplier of automated dispensing and coating equipment, announced plans to exhibit at the ASSEMBLY Show, scheduled to take place Oct. 26-28, 2021 in Rosemont, Illinois. The team will introduce the new Valve Tool Changer and 5th Axis Motorized Tilt on the Delta 8 Selective Conformal Coating Machine for the first time in Booth #1605.
The new Valve Tool Changer feature can accommodate four additional valves in the machine that can be automatically picked up and used at any time. Users can now increase the number of applications each machine can satisfy without sacrificing valuable work area.
The 5th Axis Tilt feature is a motorized programmable tilt that can be configured to adjust to any angle between -45 degrees to 45 degrees. This flexibility allows greater part accessibility for more accurate dispense and spray processes.
Ideal for selective coating, potting, bead, and meter-mix dispensing applications, the Delta 8 is designed for maximum flexibility and can be configured for custom assembly applications.
The Delta 8 has many options and integrated features including robotic system repeatability of +/-25 microns and multiple dispensing applications or materials in one cell.
Experts from PVA will be on hand to answer questions about coating and dispensing, as well as other application solutions in the PVA line-up such as coating inspection, optical bonding and curing ovens.

It’s officially fall, and that means it's time to start planning your trade show attendance. To help you make decisions about when and where to go, we’ve put together a list of industry trade shows. It has been two long years with no or few in-person trade shows, and we’ve felt it. So, now we’re back in business and ready to hit the road. Do you have a show or conference to add to our list? Let us know!

Solder defects in surface-mount technology (SMT) assembly have been an issue for decades. Further, the combined challenges of Pb-free soldering and ever-increasing miniaturization have resulted in new or exacerbated defects in electronics assembly, but there are proven ways to avoid defects. This book will be especially beneficial to PCB assemblers in improving their assembly processes and the reliability of the end-product, eliminating field failures, and reducing costs.

New product introductions (NPIs) and customization have been increasing rapidly over the past few years—with the results that the already-small profit margins in electronics assembly are shrinking even further. Fifteen years ago, the PCB was the product. Today, most products are a system, with multiple PCBs, cables, and enclosures. Many manufacturers want to provide turn-key products that have multiple BOMs, making the assembly process even more complicated.
