Transition Automation, Inc. releases a new Universal Permalex Holder and Blade Assembly to install on Ersa SMT Printers.
The Holder Assemblies include brass alloy alignment pins to improve the installation of the holders into the quick-release Ersa print head. These holders are Transition’s fourth generation, which include an extended aluminum support that eliminates the need for shim support. The holders also feature the company’s patent pending “Soft-Touch” articulating paste retainers to help keep the solder paste in the print area and reduce damage to stencils due to handling mishaps. These advanced holders offer benefits over OEM holder designs including lighter weight, available in any length, low front profile for better paste roll and color and angle options.
