tekmar Control Systems Selects AAT’s Stencil/Misprint/PCB Cleaner


Reading time ( words)

Watts Water Technologies, Inc. announced that it has purchased and installed an Austin American Technology X-30 Stencil Cleaner at its Canadian subsidiary, tekmar® Control Systems, a Watts Water Technologies Company.

With the X-30 Vertical Format Batch Cleaning System, tekmar can utilize aqueous, saponification, semi-aqueous, alcohols and hybrid solvents to remove flux residues, solder pastes, inks, adhesives and other residues from boards, stencils, or tooling used in the production process. Consistent cleaning results are ensured with a patented method of rotational spraying that creates zones of constantly changing force to provide superior performance.

Adam Bisson, Operations Support/Quality at tekmar, commented: “I can say that we have been looking at stencil cleaning options for a long time and the machine is meeting everything that we wanted. The stencils are coming out spotless after every wash and the machine has not had a single issue after being setup.

tekmar is a world-class integrated engineering and manufacturing company, located in Vernon BC that provides solutions for the heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) industry. Over the past 25 years, tekmar has earned a reputation as the leader in complete control solutions for hydronic radiant floor and baseboard heating systems, multi-stage boilers plants and automatic snow melting systems.

Initiatives like the IPC Connected Factory Exchange (CFX) and IPC-Hermes-9852 underpin efforts within the industry to develop standards and help create a smart factory. These M2M communication standards, guided in part by Industry 4.0, are altering the manufacturing process by improving metrics such as first pass yield and throughput by applying autonomous process adjustments.

A limitation of many 3D optical inspection systems is the cycle time typically associated with processing millions of pixels to reconstruct a full 3D image using data captured from multiple channels. There should not be a compromise between 3D inspection and throughput. A successful inspection deployment should provide oversight for the process, not compromise, interrupt or slow that process.
