Smart Sonic Launches Automatic Ultrasonic Stencil & Pallet Cleaner


Reading time ( words)

With the strong dollar impacting international sales, Smart Sonic has invested time and resources into lowering the cost of the next generation stencil cleaners. The New Model 6100 comes fully loaded with the most popular options and CE certification yet the selling price is almost 20% less than its predecessor.

The Model 6100 maintains the overall appearance and function of the 6000 series, but the new manufacturing strategies set in place have allowed for dramatic cost reductions.  Prior to the Model 6100, Smart Sonic would build each machine to order according to the customer’s specifications.  Now, by equipping each machine with the most popular options, the Model 6100 can be fabricated in larger lots providing significant savings in materials and reduced labor.  A win-win for the customer and Smart Sonic.

The Model 6100 is the “workhorse” of the Smart Sonic line of ultrasonic stencil & pallet cleaners.  Able to clean 29” x 29” stencils in less than 2 minutes, the Model 6100 can also clean wave solder pallets, oven radiators, misprinted PCBs and associated tooling used in the SMT printing process. 

Like all Smart Sonic Stencil & Pallet Cleaners, the Model 6100 is compatible with Smart Sonic’s exclusive EnviroGuard 100% Closed-loop Technology and 440-R SMT Detergent, the only VOC-free stencil cleaning chemistry. 

The Standard Model 6000 will still be offered to allow customization for unique applications.  The Smart Sonic Stencil Cleaning Process is verified for specific parameters of environmental safety, user safety and cleaning efficiency by the U.S. EPA’s Environmental Technology Verification Program and is guaranteed to clean any type of SMT solder paste from any fine-pitch stencil!  For additional information go to www.SmartSonic.com or visit us at APEX 2016 in Booth #2304.

Comparing Soldering Results of ENIG and EPIG Post-steam Exposure

09/11/2019 | Jon Bengston and Richard DePoto, Uyemura International USA
Electroless nickel immersion gold (ENIG) is now a well-regarded finish used to enhance and preserve the solderability of copper circuits. Electroless palladium immersion gold (EPIG), meanwhile, is a new surface finish also for enhancing and preserving solderability—but with the advantage of eliminating electroless nickel from the deposit layer. This feature has become increasingly important with the increasing use of high-frequency PCB designs whereby nickel’s magnetic properties are detrimental.

Solder Mask Evolves into a Truly Additive Process

09/09/2019 | John Fix, Taiyo America Inc.
The 5G era is creating quite a bit of work for many PCB engineers as the materials required to keep up with the speed, frequency, and latency requirements need to be defined and qualified. Solder mask, for example, now becomes a truly additive process. Read on to find out how and why.

Selecting the Proper Flex Coverlayer Material

09/06/2019 | Dave Lackey, American Standard Circuits
Coverlayers are polymer materials used to cover and protect the copper traces of the flex circuit product. There are a number of different options available for protecting the circuits, and they serve different design requirements in terms of cost, performance, and flexural endurance optimization. When specifying the choice, it is critical to call out not just the type of coverlayer material but also the thickness requirement. This can be very important in certain types of constructions, especially when a flex circuit will experience dynamic flexing during use.
