Transitioning from Manual to Automated Conformal Coating

Conformal coatings protect sensitive electronic circuitry from moisture, dust, chemicals, solvents, and other harsh environments. In the past, conformal coatings were reserved solely for expensive military or aerospace applications. Today, they are commonly used to protect a variety of automotive, commercial, industrial, medical, and consumer electronic devices.
For many manufacturers, conformal coating starts as a manual process where coatings are applied by brushing, dipping, or hand spraying.

Top three takeaways:

1. Efficiency, versatility and cost were key factors in determining serialisation systems, as well as size of production levels.

2. Lines are capable of serialising and aggregating bottles, cartons, bundles, cases and pallets, and can handle un-serialised product.

3. Compact datamatrix systems benefit as floor space is at a premium, especially in blister and vial packaging rooms where serialisation will soon be added.
