Carlsbad, CA – Asymtek, a Nordson company (Nasdaq:NDSN) and leader in dispensing, coating, and jetting technologies, announces the twenty-fifth anniversary of its founding. Established in 1983, Asymtek provides automated precision fluid dispensing and conformal coating systems worldwide. Asymtek‚â€™s systems are known for technology leadership in dispensing, closed-loop process controls, and patented processes in jetting and coating. Customers include the leaders in semiconductor packaging and printed circuit board assemblers in a wide range of industries. The company celebrated the anniversary on June 6, 2008 at its all-employee meeting.
Asymtek was founded by Robert Ciardella, Alec Babiarz, and Philip Maiorca, who worked together at Hewlett-Packard in research and development of computer peripheral products, including ink jet printers. They identified what is now called ‚â€œbenchtop automation‚â€ and aimed their efforts at the electronic assembly and semiconductor packaging markets. Their first benchtop motion system was sold in 1984. A year later a dispense head was added and the first automated dispenser was created. A major breakthrough came in 1992 when Asymtek released its patented jetting technology. Jetting has now become the standard in dispensing and has enabled many of the microelectronics and emerging technologies we have today.
