Austin American Technology Mega Ion for High-Rel Applications Requiring Rose Testing


Reading time ( words)

Austin American Technology (AAT) is pleased to offer the Mega ION® cleaning system designed for solvent based, high reliability applications requiring product cleanliness verification (IPC ROSE Testing). It is used for final clean prior to conformal coat, encapsulation or other sealing operations used to protect electronic modules.

Ionic testing is based on “ROSE”, allowing the system to quantify ionic contamination of the circuit board before or after cleaning. This allows the operator to clean and test the circuit boards within one system.

The Mega ION® is compatible with multiple solvents including but not limited to DI water, water alcohol mixtures, pure alcohol, evaporative hydrocarbons (like cyclohexane) commercial solvent blends not requiring a water rinse.

AAT’s unique regeneration system increases the MEGA ION® bath life by removing flux, finger soils and other manufacturing soils from the wash solution without heat or condensing coils. This provides a tremendous increase in bath life and reduces solvent waste. The integrated solvent regeneration typically maintains the solvent purity level at a higher standard than the solvent as received from the vendor.

The MEGA ION® system operates in a closed-loop environment with wash bath life maintained through the use of an integrated ionic exchange filter system. This provides a rapid economic payback based upon solvent and solvent disposal savings combined with less maintenance downtime and high production uptime.

Driving Down Cost in the Supply Chain

04/08/2021 | Meghan Zou, EPOCH
Driving cost out of the supply chain goes beyond reduction of raw material cost. Though many of the manufacturers today concentrate on negotiation with their raw material supplier(s) the hidden cost of internal supply chain goes undetected. To address the cost of the entire supply chain we should not only look at direct material cost but also the cost of internal supply chain. At Epoch we looked at four areas in particular which include: planning/tracking, storage/delivery, inventory management, and supplier relationships.

5 Keys to Smart Process Success

01/28/2021 | Steve Williams, The Right Approach Consulting LLC
Smart factories require the core underlying processes to be connected and “talking” to generate the data necessary to make real-time process decisions, that is, the IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things). In a truly connected factory, an ongoing continuous dialog between machines, business processes, suppliers and customers is happening in the background. This dialog is not only interactive, but proactive, as a constant stream of real-time data is tweaking and adjusting processes to drive improvement. It also provides time-critical information on how processes are operating, supply chain pipeline, and delivery status updates—all based on data.

An EMS Perspective on Inventory Management
