Zentech Adds Aquastorm In-Line Cleaner


Reading time ( words)

Zentech has added the Aquastorm 200C in-line cleaner to its robust  equipment set. The Aquastorm was selected via an Extensive Design of Experiment (DoE) competitive selection process by Zentech engineers.

The system’s wash and rinse cycles are closed loop, minimizing the machines impact on the environment, while maintaining an effective cleaning capability. The water utilized by the Aquastorm is first cleaned by a water treatment system.  City water is precleaned by RO filters prior to treatment that removes heavy metals, anions, cations and organic contaminates from the water.  Any organisms that might start to grow in the closed loop system are killed by UV light.  The end result is that the water used to process Zentech assemblies is near lab purity. 

The wash tank and rinse tank are uniquely configured with 33 spray bars of three types, and two giant pumps totaling 35 hp.  Together they provide impressive water volume and pressure required for the various types of spray bars to clean effectively.

The 200C was developed specifically to clean BTC (Bottom Terminated Components) and Low Profile Devices.  Zentech specializes in the manufacture of highly complex, extremely dense printed circuit boards, most with hundreds of bottom terminated components. The Aquastorm 200C is a welcome upgrade contributing to Zentech's continued success of manufacturing mission and life critical electronics.

Excerpt: The Printed Circuit Assembler’s Guide to… Smart Data

04/07/2021 | Sagi Reuven and Zac Elliott, Siemens Digital Industries Software
Whenever we discuss data, keep in mind that people have been collecting data, verifying it, and translating it into reports for a long time. And if data is collected and processes are changed automatically, people still will be interpreting and verifying the accuracy of the data, creating reports, making recommendations, solving problems, tweaking, improving, and innovating. Whatever data collection system is used, any effort to digitalize needs to engage and empower the production team at the factory. Their role is to attend to the manufacturing process but also to act as the front line of communications and control.

What Makes a Good Process Engineer?

03/03/2021 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Nolan Johnson recently spoke with Tuan Tran, director of customer solutions at Green Circuits, about what makes a successful process engineer. They also discuss a typical day in the life of a process engineer—from pre-manufacturing through post-DFM, for process improvement. As Tuan points out, there are a variety of paths to becoming a great process engineer.
