GRAND JUNCTION, CO ― April 2011 ― GPD Global, a manufacturer of precision fluid dispensing systems for high-volume 24/7, low-volume/high-mix and R&D production, announces that it has been awarded a 2011 NPI Award in the category of Dispensing Equipment for its Positive Cavity Displacement (PCD) Dispensing. The award was presented to the company during a Tuesday, April 12, 2011 ceremony that took place at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Convention Center in Las Vegas during IPC APEX 2011.
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. PCD Technology is designed for GPD Global platforms and may be used with other robots or tabletop operations with an easy-to-use tabletop controller.
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.
Premiering in 2008, the NPI Awards program is an annual celebration of product excellence in electronics surface mount assembly. Premier products based on the finest examples of creative advancement in technology are chosen by a distinguished panel of industry experts.
