What types of valve are available for robotic selective conformal coating machines?
There are three main types of valves fitted to machines and used in conformal coating applications. These are:
- Airless Spray Valves commonly referred to in this industry as ‘film-coat’ valves.
- LVLP (Low Volume Low Pressure) Atomised spray valves).
- Dispense valves (Contactless or regular needle style)

About Dr Lee HitchensDr Hitchens has been working in the electronics industry and the area of conformal coatings for over 25 years in various areas including sales and technical support. He has also been training people for almost the same amount of time in all areas of conformal coating whether that is materials & equipment selection, process development or troubleshooting to help them solve their particular problem. Recently, he decided that the industry needed a specific place where all of the useful knowledge on conformal coatings could be collated for users to find easily and use in their own production process. So, Nexus was born and he began the Nexus eBook project.
