A large electronics manufacturer did all the staking and potting of electronic components at one of its U.S. plants. The company had been mixing adhesives in-house for over 10 years using a legacy custom adhesive mixing machine. When the machine broke down, the company initiated an internal review of its adhesive mixing process, with the main goal of determining alternatives to mixing in-house, as the cost to replace the mixing machine was significant.
The right processing system can be the difference between a part made correctly and a costly error.

Rapid change has become common in today’s marketplace. With it comes even greater pressure for new technologies to accommodate manufacturing needs to fulfill the consumer demand, both now and in the future.
Technology is evolving rapidly—not only in the adhesive dispensing world, but in all of manufacturing—to meet ever-changing customer demands. New products launch more frequently than in the past, bringing new features and advanced controls to the market every few years.
UV spot-curing systems have been used in assembly and manufacturing processes for over 30 years. Historically, mercury arc lamps have been used as the curing source in a range of industrial applications and processes to polymerize adhesives. With their broad spectrum and high output, lamps have provided an effective solution for many years.
