PVA Receives Mexico Technology Award for Dual Component Spray Valve

Nov 16, 2018

PVA announces that it was awarded a 2018 Mexico Technology Award in the category of Dispensing Equipment for its VPX-2KS. The award was presented to the company during a Wednesday, Nov. 14, 2018 ceremony that took place during the SMTA Guadalajara Expo & Tech Forum. The VPX-2KS is the first valve designed to meter, mix and spray two-component, reactive conformal coatings and encapsulants in a selective manner without overspray.

The VPX-2KS is a combination of metering, mixing and spraying, all in a compact package on the robot head compared to traditional remote feed systems where the pumps may be located in the rear of the machine.

A combination of technologies (progressive cavity pumps, static mixing, low pressure atomized spraying) have come together to develop this product. Other two-component spray systems have existed/do exist for medical and industrial applications but could not be brought over into electronics manufacturing as they do not offer the control or cleanliness required for a selective conformal coating process.

“PVA is honored to be recognized for this award,” says Jon Urquhart, Director of Application Engineering at PVA. “We designed the VPX-2KS to fill the need in the industry for tools to efficiently process new two-component coatings. The VPX-2KS focuses on compact fluid metering and ease of cleaning while still providing the same level of spray quality that PVA is known for.”

The Mexico Technology Awards recognize the best new innovations in the electronics manufacturing industry in Mexico. The goal of the award program is to celebrate the companies and people that are achieving the highest standards and driving the industry forward.
