PVA to Showcase Coating/Dispensing Systems & Introduce New Valve Kiosk Stand at APEX 2023

Halfmoon, NY – December 2022 – PVA, a global supplier of automated dispensing and coating equipment, today announced plans to exhibit at the 2023 IPC APEX EXPO, scheduled to take place Jan. 24-26, 2023 at the San Diego Convention Center in California.  The PVA team will introduce its new Valve Kiosk Stand and showcase three systems in Booth #3133, including the Delta 8 Selective Conformal Coating Machine with the new Valve Tool Changer. Additionally, a Delta 8 Coating/Dispensing System will be equipped with the patented 4th axis for conformal coating, an FCS300 Spray Valve and FCM100 Front Closing Micro Dispense Valve. Finally, the Sigma Benchtop Robot also will be on display.

The new Valve Kiosk Stand boasts 18 valves from PVA’s extensive valve product line that satisfy an array of applications including dispensing, gasketing, conformal coating, thermal interface material, underfill, jetting and potting. The stand features three 15.6” touch screen interfaces with an interactive user interface. It includes removable valves for closer inspection and in-depth breakdowns of each valve: Overview, X-ray, Operation, Applications & Dispense Patterns. Customers can navigate by Industry, Application, Valve type or “Request Help,” if you are new.

PVA’s Valve Tool Changer feature can accommodate four additional valves in the machine that can be automatically picked up and used at any time.  Users can now increase the number of applications each machine can satisfy without sacrificing valuable work area.

Ideal for selective coating, potting, bead and meter-mix dispensing applications, the Delta 8 is designed for maximum flexibility and can be configured for custom assembly applications. The Delta 8 has many options and integrated features including robotic system repeatability of +/-25 microns and multiple dispensing applications or materials in one cell.

The Sigma benchtop is a compact three-axis robotic gantry ideal for automating a variety of dispensing and coating applications.

Experts from PVA will be on hand to answer questions about coating and dispensing, as well as other application solutions in the PVA line-up such as coating inspection, optical bonding and curing ovens.
