Photocad Partners with Soldering Expert Factronix for Optimization of SMD Stencil Cleaning
(EMAILWIRE.COM, June 04, 2012 ) Berlin, Germany The partners intend to introduce StencilClean, a new powerful cleaning device for stencils and establish new industry standards for SMD stencil cleaning. The high-performance cleaning system is designed for middle and high capacity of stencil cleaning, eliminating the risk of paste and glue contamination.
Allowing for a maximum size of the subjected stencil of 740 x 820 x 90mm, this powerful device can be successfully used to remove impurities from the finest stencil structures, as well as from misprinted
The StencilClean machine uses water-based cleaners to successfully achieve standard stencil cleaning, eliminating the risk of re-contamination with rest of fluxes and solder balls during the three-stage filtration. Through software-controlled servo-flaps, the stencils are efficiently dried during internal hot air circulation and moisture ventilation. Glue depositions are entirely removed even from plastic stencils by means of the high-pressure spray system.
StencilClean features rotational nozzle arms to achieve an ideal balancing of both-side forces on the stencil surface. This increases the stencils resistance and durability in time by not affecting the thin stencil structures and elastic zone. In addition, the cleaning process of SMD stencils is carried out in a safe and secure manner, with cleaned subjects permanently protected against accidents and potential crash.
Soldering is not only the interaction of temperature and metal, but rather a highly complex process made up of hundreds of factors that are subject to constant change.
Only those who have long-standing experience in this area and have moved on a broad front in order to effectively implement new technologies, can design the trend of miniaturization in ever-increasing quality demands, says Factronix representative.
"As an essential part of PHOTOCADs strategy to reach new technological standards, we have chosen StencilClean for fast and accurate SMD stencil cleaning. We have placed the machine as a demonstration model in our company, and give our clients from the electronic business the ability to test it in demonstration, said http://www.photocad.de laserschneiden representative.
