TORRANCE, CA — February 2012 — Seika Machinery, Inc., a leading provider of advanced machinery, materials and engineering services, announces that it was recently awarded for its Outstanding Sawa Sales Achievement in 2011. Seika’s sales for Sawa equipment was up nearly 60 percent over the previous year.
“We have been representing Sawa products for over 14 years in North America. The manufacturer has developed unique and cost-effective cleaning solutions for the SMT market and Seika is proud to provide sales, installation, technical support and repair services to our customers on Sawa equipment.,” said Michelle Ogihara, Senior Sales Manager.
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.
The Ecobrid stencil cleaner provides a 66 percent reduction in CO2 emissions and energy consumption over the previously fully automatic cleaning system offered as well as a huge reduction in running costs. Additionally, the system cleans and dries in just ten minutes or less.
The Sawa Eco-Roll eliminates waste and saves money by reusing wiper rolls for printing machines. The SC-ER360 cleans wiper rolls in just 20 minutes and measures W900 x D850 x H1200 mm.
