Nordson ASYMTEK has announced the sale of two Spectrum II S2-922 in-line dispensing systems to GN ReSound, one of the world's largest manufacturers of hearing healthcare solutions. GN ReSound presently has an installed base of off-line Nordson ASYMTEK coating systems and Axiom X-1000 dispensers. The Spectrum II systems are being used as part of automated manufacturing production lines to apply underfill in the manufacture of hearing aids.

Nordson ASYMTEK's Spectrum II dispensing platform is a high-speed, high-accuracy precision dispensing system for microelectronics, semiconductor, MEMS and manufacturing/assembly applications. It has a small footprint, but accommodates dual valves, up to six heaters and/or dual lane conveyance.

"We chose the Nordson ASYMTEK systems because we are familiar with the ASYMTEK brand and have found that their equipment gives us the required performance and flexibility for many different processes needed in conjunction with manufacturing hearing aid electronics," said Elvin Solberg, Manufacturing Engineering Manager, GN ReSound. "Before, underfill was done manually off-line. Dispensing underfill in-line with the Spectrum II reduces manual handling and gives a more uniform result, a more efficient SMD manufacturing process, and better yield."

"Nordson ASYMTEK is proud to once again build upon our strong partnership with GN ReSound and have our Spectrum II dispensers chosen for their automated production line," commented Lars Nielsen, Global Account Manager, Nordson ASYMTEK. "The precision dispensing accuracy and application flexibility of the S2-922 made it the ideal choice for GN ReSound's advanced packaging processes."
