Nordson ASYMTEK Automates Dispensing for Manufacture of Hearing Aids


Reading time ( words)

Nordson ASYMTEK, a Nordson company, a global leader in dispensing, jetting, and coating equipment and technologies, announces the sale of two Spectrum II S2-922 in-line dispensing systems to GN ReSound, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of hearing healthcare solutions. GN ReSound, based in Ballerup, Denmark with production facilities in Præstø, Denmark, presently has an installed base of off-line Nordson ASYMTEK coating systems and Axiom™ X-1000 dispensers. The Spectrum II systems are being used as part of automated manufacturing production lines to apply underfill in the manufacture of hearing aids.

“We chose the Nordson ASYMTEK systems because we are familiar with the ASYMTEK brand and have found that their equipment gives us the required performance and flexibility for many different processes needed in conjunction with manufacturing hearing aid electronics,” said Elvin Solberg, manufacturing engineering manager for GN ReSound. “Before, underfill was done manually off-line. Dispensing underfill in-line with the Spectrum II reduces manual handling and gives a more uniform result, a more efficient SMD manufacturing process, and better yield.”

Nordson ASYMTEK’s award-winning Spectrum II dispensing platform is a high-speed, high-accuracy precision dispensing system for microelectronics, semiconductor, MEMS, and manufacturing/assembly applications. It has a small footprint, but accommodates dual valves, up to 6 heaters, and/or dual lane conveyance.

“Nordson ASYMTEK is proud to once again build upon our strong partnership with GN ReSound and have our award-winning Spectrum II dispensers chosen for their automated production line,” said Nordson ASYMTEK’s global account manager, Lars Nielsen. “The precision dispensing accuracy and application flexibility of the S2-922 made it the ideal choice for GN ReSound’s advanced packaging processes.”

Nordson ASYMTEK will be exhibiting and presenting a paper at IMAPS Nordic.

Excerpt: The Printed Circuit Assembler’s Guide to… Smart Data, Chapter 2

Companies have been collecting data in large volumes. Highly varied data from manufacturing operations comes in quickly that needs to be validated, and its value prioritized so that it can be turned into something useful—transformed from big data to smart data. The amount of data available has grown exponentially into big data. Twenty years ago, a PCB work order resulted in 100 data records, megabytes of data; today, it is 10 billion records, terabytes of data. The investment in collecting this data and storing it is high. However, without a way to analyze the data, without analytics, it will not result in ROI.

Whenever we discuss data, keep in mind that people have been collecting data, verifying it, and translating it into reports for a long time. And if data is collected and processes are changed automatically, people still will be interpreting and verifying the accuracy of the data, creating reports, making recommendations, solving problems, tweaking, improving, and innovating. Whatever data collection system is used, any effort to digitalize needs to engage and empower the production team at the factory. Their role is to attend to the manufacturing process but also to act as the front line of communications and control.
