APEX Dispensing Systems

GPD Global to Exhibit Precision Fluid Dispensing Systems at IPC/APEX 2011

GRAND JUNCTION, CO ― GPD Global, a manufacturer of precision fluid dispensing systems for high-volume 24/7, low-volume/high-mix and R&D production will highlight its Positive Cavity Displacement (PCD) Dispensing in Booth #2241 at the upcoming IPC/APEX conference and exhibition, scheduled to take place April 12-14, 2011 at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Convention Center in Las Vegas.

GPD’s PCD dispensing provides next-generation volumetric dispensing and is compatible with materials used in electronics assembly such as epoxies, thermal greases, underfills, oils, silicones and UV encapsulants, as well as materials outside of the electronics industry.

Viscous fluids are delivered to the substrate via luer nozzles and performance excels when using GPD Global ‘S’ Taper tips. The metering technique is not affected by variations in temperature or reservoir pressure, thereby improving day-to-day and start-to-finish process results. GPD’s enhanced flow rate luer dispense tips offer higher flow rates than standard luer nozzles with a much lower pressure build-up.

GPD also provides automated fluid inspection (not component or solder joint) that can verify the presence, absence, continuity (line or area fills) and size of dispensed fluid on a PCD. This system is geared towards fluids only and comes in at a much lower price point than a standard, inline AOI.

The MAX Series dispensing systems are the premier dispensing platforms in the GPD Global dispensing line up. The systems are capable of a wide variety of dispensing applications including micro-volume, solder paste and conductive adhesive, underfill, Surface Mount Adhesive, dam and fill, encapsulations, LED encapsulation, masks and lens fixing.

At the heart of all MAX Series systems is a solid unibody with a molded frame, yielding outstanding stability and unparalleled accuracy. Standard features include automatic vision, fully automatic XYZ needle calibration with GPD’s proprietary backlit calibration station, needle cleaning, light force contact surface sensing and the unique Taper-Lock Valve Mounting hardware.
