Transition Automation Upgrades Squeegee Offering for Panasonic Printers


Reading time ( words)

Transition Automation, Inc. announces the availability of two new and advanced SMT squeegee assemblies for Panasonic SPG and SPV SMT printers. The new designs include a stronger blade holder assembly with a streamlined front clamp bar with fewer holes, and a fourth generation paste retainer design that enables easy paste retainer detachment for cleaning and maintenance.

The new squeegee holders are compatible and drop-in ready for both the Panasonic SPG and SPV SMT printers and are thus designated PLX-PAN-U-xx-PR and PLX-PAN-V-xx-PR respectively.  The holders maintain a weight advantage in that they are more than 50 percent lighter than typical OEM holders.

When combined with TA’s highly durable Permalex Edge metal squeegees, these blade and holder systems give the end user a tough package that is much less likely to suffer a ding, dent or nick from handling.  They are available for delivery in 1-2 weeks A.R.O. and Ship F.O.B. from Transition Automation Headquarters in Tyngsborough, Massachusetts,  USA.  

Transition Automation Permalex squeegee blades and holder systems are designed for high performance and longevity for mission-critical electronics production.  TA products are used worldwide for Aerospace, Automotive, Communications, Industrial control, Government and Satellite Systems applications. Transition Automation, Inc. enhances electronics manufacturing production yield and efficiency by reducing machine interruption while maintaining high performance output for lengthy production cycles.  Transition Automation strives for production consistency between orders, and across various machine platforms and squeegee styles.
