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.

SMT Electrolytic Capacitor Solder Joint Criteria and Integrity Investigation

12/21/2018 | David Hillman, Rockwell Collins
The body configuration of SMT electrolytic capacitors results in the solder joints being only partially visible for optical inspection purposes. Therefore, the use of adequate reflow soldering processes is critical for producing solder joints that are acceptable for their end-product use environment.
