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.

The stencils are coming out spotless after every wash and the machine has not had a single issue after being setup.
