CARLSBAD, CA – Mydata Automation, a manufacturer of SMT process equipment, has signed a license agreement with Nordson Corp. involving patents for jetting processes developed by Asymtek, provider of coating, dispensing and jetting technologies.
Mydata will use this technology in its jet printer products designed for SMT applications.
Mydata introduced its jet printer in 2005, but has reportedly been unable to sell it into certain regions because of specific IP questions. Those appear to be overcome by the agreement.
“We are pleased to reach this level of cooperation within the industry, which benefits a larger number of customers over time,” Mydata CEO Bengt Broman said in a statement.
“A broader range of markets will now have access to our jetting technologies, unencumbered by IP issues,” added Alec J. Babiarz, president, new business development, Asymtek.
Asymtek is owned by Nordson.
