Nordson ASYMTEK, a Nordson company, recently announced that it has celebrated 20 years of supplying fluid dispensing equipment to Demant A/S, a manufacturer of hearing aid brands that include Oticon, Bernafon, and Sonic. During this history, Nordson reports that its technologies have enabled Demant to design smaller and more capable hearing aids.
The first Nordson ASYMTEK dispensing systems were shipped to Demant in 1999 for a dam-and-fill application for hearing aid electronics. Over the years, more systems were added to jet underfill and surface mount adhesive and to dispense solder paste using a variety of Nordson ASYMTEK’s valve technologies. Approximately 20 dispensing systems have been shipped to Demant facilities, with the majority still in operation.
“We have continued to work with ASYMTEK because of their expertise in many forms of automated fluid dispensing,” said Torben Pedersen, head of operational technology for Demant. “Their equipment and process solutions are innovative, which provides us the tools to support our own customers.”
“This milestone is certainly one to celebrate,” said Lars M. Nielsen, business development manager for Nordson ASYMTEK. “They are a great team to work with. I have enjoyed helping them to double their capacity using less labor and to adapt to smaller and smaller designs. As they have used our dispensing solutions at—and even beyond—the designed capabilities, they gave us feedback to enable further development for our pumps and equipment. It’s been an honor working with them to build better hearing aids during these 20 years.”
