Seika Machinery, Inc., a leading provider of advanced machinery, materials and engineering services, will highlight its latest environmentally responsible cleaning solutions at the upcoming High Performance Cleaning and Coating Conference, scheduled to take place November 16-18, 2010 at the Renaissance Hotel & Convention Center in Schaumburg, IL.
With product literature and CDs on hand, Seika will feature the Sawa Eco-Roll, which eliminates waste and saves money by reusing wiper rolls for printing machines. In addition to providing a reduction in waste, use of the wiper roll cleaner results in reduced CO2 emissions. The SC-ER360 cleans wiper rolls in just 20 minutes and measures W900 x D850 x H1200 mm.
Wiper rolls are widely used for under stencil cleaning to wipe off solder paste in the SMT printing process. Most of them are used only once, then are disposed of with other solder waste. Recycling wiper rolls not only reduces emissions but also reduces lumber usage. In addition, tests have shown that repeated cleaning of wiper rolls does not compromise the performance when cleaning stencil apertures.
Sawa Stencil Cleaners are widely used in the Japanese electronics industry to ensure high yields when screen printing solder paste onto PCBs. Normal cloth wipe cleaning of stencils cannot completely remove solder paste especially in fine-pitch applications because a small amount of solder balls have a tendency to adhere to the corners of the apertures.
Seika also will highlight NIX’s newest technology, the NIKKO POWER CYCLONE, a PCB cleaner with conveyor. The powerful cyclone thoroughly removes dust and particles from PCB surfaces before solder application by utilizing a combination of a brush, high-pressure air knife and vacuum removal.
Unlike adhesive roller type cleaners, the NIKKO POWER CYCLONE requires minimal supervision and the brush needs to be replaced only once a year. Additionally, the cyclones’ high removal rate significantly reduces soldering defects.
