Transition Automation, Inc. has introduced new product IDs that afford better quality control for squeegee end users. The company now applies indelible marking, which includes Date of Manufacture and Dimensional Part Numbers. The Date of Manufacture gives end users a better idea of product replacement cycles—which tend to be beyond one-year intervals. So date coding is deemed more important due to the long lifespan of the product. Additionally, all company part numbers have been converted to Dimensional Part Numbers. As such, all products have a code containing LxxxWyyyTzzz, which informs the user of the length, width and thickness of their squeegee product. This code is applied to all products, from Holders with Blades, to OEM Blades with Holes and Custom Bare Blade products. Pump Printing Squeegee blades are excluded from coding due to their thin structure. Traditional printed labels are used for Pump Printing products.

Transition Automation, Inc. enhances electronics manufacturing production yield and efficiency by reducing machine interruption while maintaining high-performance output for lengthy production cycles.
