Ovation's Stinger modular dispensing technology transforms traditional screen printing platforms into dual-function systems, enhancing the capability of the machine by enabling a dispensing process on board the printing system and, thus, saving valuable floor space and reducing equipment costs. Easily integrated into the screen printer alongside the machine's vision system, the Stinger dispensing module operates just as an in-line dispenser would: once the printed circuit board is screen printed, it is lowered down to vision height, where Stinger can then accurately dispense adhesive or paste using industry standard materials cartridges.
�Traditionally, adhesive is used to secure Surface Mount Devices (SMDs) to the underside of the board during wave soldering or for large components in a reflow system,� explains Ovation Products President, Neil MacRaild. �Stinger is pioneering advances in this area by allowing manufacturers to dispense adhesive dots on a pre-programmed pattern after the paste printing process has completed. Ideal for customers working with mixed technology boards, Stinger is incredibly easy to use and features innovative patented technology to eliminate unnecessary stoppages and raise productivity. We look forward to seeing the results it delivers for our customers around the world!�
Stinger from Ovation dispenses through a patented consumable auger valve technology contained within the system module. Enabling simple adhesive changeover and eliminating the need for system cleaning, the removed valve is re-usable, speeding up product changeover even further. Minimizing manual intervention to prevent production errors and streamline dispensing performance, Stinger is compatible with a wide variety of print platforms for the ultimate in manufacturing flexibility.
