Asymtek Honored with SMT China Vision Award and EM Asia Innovation Award at NEPCON China 2009

DJ-9500 Fluid Jetting Valve and SV-100 Solder Paste Slider Valve Win in Dispensing Equipment Categories

Carlsbad, CA - April 27, 2009 - Asymtek, a Nordson company and leader in dispensing, coating, and jetting technologies, announces it has received two prestigious awards during NEPCON China 2009. Asymtek's DispenseJet® DJ-9500 fluid jetting valve won the SMT China VISION Award, while Asymtek's SV-100 high-speed slider valve received the EM Asia Innovation Award. The DJ-9500 has a flexible pneumatic design that can jet a wide variety of fluids up to 10 times faster than existing needle type dispensers, even with abrasive fluids. The SV-100 dispense valve uses slider valve technology to dispense paste-type fluids that contain metal additives. It is up to 20% faster than standard auger valves with needles. The speed and accuracy of the SV-100 makes it cost-effective for a range of production requirements.

The SMT China VISION Award honors achievements in China's electronics manufacturing industry. Selection of the winners is based on 10 criteria: creativeness and innovativeness, performance, reliability, cost effectiveness, ease-of-use, flexibility, compatibility, quality contributions, environmental responsibility, and maintainability/reparability and service. The VISION Award presentation ceremony was held on April 21, 2009 in the Shanghai Everbright International Hotel, Shanghai, China.

The EM Asia Innovation Award recognizes, rewards, and celebrates excellence in the Asian electronics industry. The 2009 EM Asia awards were presented to companies that have achieved the highest standards for their products. An independent panel of industry experts judged entrants on innovation and achievement and in setting challenging objectives. Also held at the Shanghai Everbright International Hotel, the award was presented on April 22, 2009.
