Adhesives dispensing expertise shared at FAST Live

To help the industry better tackle the challenges of technology and manufacturing using adhesives and protective materials, Peter Swanson, Managing Director at adhesives specialist Intertronics, ran a seminar at FAST Live. Swanson offered insights into dispensing technology, process validation and the latest positive displacement and jetting technologies.

On the day, the spoke about high-performance, high-technology bonding, coating, sealing, encapsulation, potting, masking and gasketing requirements.

Swanson said: “For an adhesive or protective material to function properly, it must be applied in the correct quantity and at the correct location. As requirements for fine tolerances, miniaturisation, quality and speed increase, it becomes even more difficult, particularly when operating at fractions of a millilitre. The challenges can arise for many reasons, for example because materials have multiple parts, difficult rheology or limited working life.

“The session will help delegates to understand how to select dispensing technology, what equipment is available and the advantages and disadvantages of each technique. It will also explain process validation and quality assurance and touch on the latest positive displacement and jetting technologies on the market. Ultimately, it will give delegates more information to design robust, consistent and validatable processes in their businesses.”
