Kolb Intros Next-gen Stencil Cleaning Technology


Reading time ( words)

Kolb Cleaning Technology has released the AQUBE MV8 sTWIN, a stencil cleaning system featuring dual process chambers with independent operating control. The AQUBE MV8 sTWIN is capable of cleaning one or two stencils immediately following a cleaning cycle (in parallel) or one stencil immediately and another stencil or squeegee(s) later (sequentially), making the MV8 sTWIN suitable for large-scale manufacturing or flexible enough for low-volume, high-mix production environments.

With a capacity of up to two stencils (900 x 800 x 50 mm or 35" x 32"), the MV8 sTWIN is a fully automatic, four-step processing system with cleaning, MediumWipe, rinsing and patented CWA (compressed warm air) drying in the same process chamber; this equates to a short cycle time of approximately 5 min (normal contamination) per stencil.

The Kolb AQUBE MV8 sTWIN is the next generation in cleaning systems, pre-equipped for extended water management and is Smart Factory ready for integration in Industry 4.0 production. The system is certified for both energy and water saving processes, ease of operation, and built-in comprehensive safety features.

Solder Paste Jetting: An Integral Approach

11/21/2018 | Jeff Leal, Gustaf Mårtensson, and Nerijus Augustis, Mycronic AB
Solder paste jetting is a technique that differs greatly from traditional solder paste deposition methods. In this article, solder paste jetting is compared with the other solder paste deposition methods—solder paste dispensing and solder paste printing and solder paste jetting—and highlights why it is becoming a viable option and how it increases the flexibility of a single production system.
