Super-Long Tipped Nozzles

Super-Long Tipped Nozzles

Dispensing is a necessary process in all electronics manufacturing wherein accuracy and precision are of the utmost importance. Tecdia has modified their existing dispensing nozzles to meet the new demands of both customers and continually shrinking sizes of electronics components.

The Challenge:

To create dispensing nozzles that can be used in confined spaces while keeping the same characteristics as ARQUE dispensing nozzles.

When developing dispensing nozzles for camera modules the main obstacle to overcome was the obstruction of the dispensing location by a component with a height of 3.5 mm. This component makes it impossible to accurately apply the fluid using the ARQUE dispensing nozzles.

Standard nozzles fail to reach into deep and narrow spaces.

The Solution:

Going beyond current manufacturing capabilities to create a super-long tipped nozzle

The current limits of manufacturing were believed to be 1:10 (inner diameter:tip length), however Tecdia has developed nozzles with aspect ratios up to 1:24 as shown below.

  • (Left): Arque dispensing nozzle
    (middle): Φ0.2mm, tip length 4.5mm
    (right): Φ0.25mm, tip length 6mm

  • Super-Long Tipped Nozzle

Tecdia has achieved all of this while keeping the tapered interior design and by machining the nozzles from one piece of metal we are able to maintain the same performance as the ARQUE dispensing nozzles. These features resolve clogging issues conventionally present during prototyping. In addition, the tip has been polished to eliminate problematic creep up and stretching of materials after dispensing, delivering the performance required by Tecdia customers.

The Result:

Our products passed evaluation for mass manufacturing and are being used to dispense materials used for camera module production by multiple manufacturers.
