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.

Impact of Stencil Foil Type on Solder Paste Transfer Efficiency for Laser-cut SMT Stencils (Part 2)

05/08/2019 | Greg Smith, BlueRing Stencils
In the first part of this two-part article, Greg Smith talks about a study wherein a test vehicle was created to show transfer efficiency over a wide array of area ratios. Part 2 discusses the results of the experiment, including discussions of the different SEM results featuring the paste transfer efficiencies of each material, to better understand how the aperture wall surface smoothness compares to SMT stencil performance.

Impact of Stencil Foil Type on Solder Paste Transfer Efficiency for Laser-cut SMT Stencils (Part 1)

04/24/2019 | Greg Smith, BlueRing Stencils
As innovation and demand continue to drive miniaturization in electronics, manufacturers face the constant challenge of assembling smaller and smaller components with repeatable processes and high yields. Stencil printing is the first step in the PWB assembly process, and improvements to the SMT stencil can significantly improve yields, especially for more challenging miniaturized products.

Tips & Tricks: Humidity Level for Electronics Assembly

04/10/2019 | Jason Fullerton, MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions
Low relative humidity (RH) can allow for higher static charges to build on objects. It can also affect solder pastes, especially OR-class pastes, and this can reduce print performance and stencil life. Read on to find out what level of RH you need for your assembly facility.
