Milwaukee Electronics offers conformal coating in all three of its electronics manufacturing facilities. Encapsulation is also available. The Milwaukee, WI and Tecate, Mexico facilities have a full range of automated and manual conformal coating options. The Portland, OR facility does manual conformal coating on a limited basis.
The automated conformal coating process is sprayed and cured using Nordson ASYMTEK equipment. Typically acrylic coating is used. The machines’ precision spraying capability eliminates the need for almost all masking. Machine programming is done in-house. A manual spraying option in conformal coating booth is available for projects not suitable for the automated process.
Milwaukee Electronics has worked to optimize its coating processes in terms of environmental cleanliness and workplace quality of life, so fumes and contamination are not an issue.
