Technobox, Inc. is pleased to announce the purchase of its second X30™ Fully Automatic Stencil Cleaner. Located in West Berlin, NJ, Technobox’s talented engineers and production staff offer extensive OEM industry experience. The company relied on Austin American Technology’s (AAT) X30 cleaning system for many years and, with its continued growth, decided it was an opportune time to invest in a second machine.
Offering COTS (commercial-off-the-shelf) products, mezzanine cards and engineering design for over 30 years, Technobox manufactures the most extensive range of PMC/XMC cards, carriers and adapters on the market – providing a variety of embedded solutions to clients in the energy, transportation and defense industries. When it comes to cleaning high-value components, the company requires utmost flexibility.
The X30 provides Technobox with maximum chemistry flexibility designed to meet a wide variety of applications. Aqueous, saponification, semi-aqueous, alcohols and hybrid solvents are utilized to remove solder pastes, adhesives and various other residues from boards, stencils or tooling used in the production process.
“The X30 cleaner is a key component of our water-soluble Flux SMT line,” commented Mike Finerty, Senior Electrical Engineer, Technobox, Inc. “It is excellent for low/medium production rates, and cleans our PCBs, stencils and squeegees in a small footprint with no discharge. It is very easy to install, program and maintain, and saves space on the shop floor by combing multiple functions into one machine.”
With the X30, users can expect consistent cleaning results from its patented method of rotational spraying – creating zones of constantly changing force that provide superior performance and reliability. A fully automated cleaning system, the X30 does not require product transference between wash, rinse and dry cycles.
Incorporating filtration and a selectable open-loop/closed-loop configuration, the X30 addresses Technobox’s environmental and safety concerns. The cleaner’s automated lift and compact body design easily facilitates load/unload procedure and provides the industries’ smallest footprint.
VITA, IPC610 and ISO 9001:2015 certified, Technobox’s environmentally-controlled facility includes ESD flooring, positive pressurization and an in-house database specially tailored to electronic manufacturing. The company handles both leaded and RoHS assembly, as well as conformal-coating and on-site functional product testing.
