The Elite Coater is combining flexibility with high speed and accuracy. This is opening doors when large production volumes are required. The Elite Coater provides both flexibility and speed by being able to mount up to three valves from which a maximum of two can be tilted and 370° rotate. With a maximum speed of 1000 mm per second and an overall accuracy of 50 micron at 3 sigma, the machine is ideal for high speed and high accuracy applications.
This performance is made possible by utilizing linear encoders for all movements within the machine. A
camera is part of the standard package of the Elite, as well as the unique off-line programming software. Furthermore you can work with component, package and fiducial libraries. It comes with a dispensing library to store and monitor all available information about different materials, dispense valves and all necessary parameters needed for a repeatable production.Optional the Elite Coater can be equipped with automatic fiducial alignment (ESI) software making the Elite Coater into an ideal selective conformal
coating platform for many applications.
The Elite can be equipped with all Nordson DIMA dispense and spray valves including the high speed airless Curtain valve. A standard feature within the Elite is that all air pressures used in the Elite (main air pressure, tank pressure and atomizing air pressure) are being monitored in order to control the process and with that guarantee the process repeatability. The Elite is modular build, meaning that options can be added to the machine on a later date.
The DR-071 Robot is equipped with an X and Y-axis and 1 Z-slide module. On this Z-slides one valve is supplied. Apart from the one supplied, there are open positions for two more Z-Slides and valves. If rotation and tilt is required, two out of three Z-Slides can be upgrade to a Z-axis with rotation and tilt. The Z-slide is easy to mount and the units can be configured outside the machine.
The DR-071 comes standard with
a computer with DIMASOFT user software,
a base for up to 3 Z-slides, with one Z-Slide and valve included
one electronic pressure sensor for the main air supply,
one sensor and regulator for material pressure and
one sensor and regulator for atomising air.
A sensor for detection of exhaust air (required for solvent based coatings).

Off line programming software
The robot comes as a batch machine but can be upgraded to an in-line machine. One important feature of the DR series is that all valves can move independently up and down with a stroke of 105 mm. All Z-movements in the Elite Coater are individual motorized movements.
All these features make the Elite selective conformal coating Robot DR-071 the most flexible to configure and easy to reconfigure robot available for fast selective conformal coating jobs. Together with the unbeatable DIMA Easy track® offline programming software and the DIMAsoft User interface Nordson DIMA has created the ultimate machine.
