Wash systems, batch vs. inline

#28614

Wash systems, batch vs. inline | 14 May, 2004

ok, we currently have one wash we use for everything, thru-hole and SMT. The configuration of our floor puts the SMT area at opposite ends of the floor than the wash, thus causing a lot of back and forth to the wash. We want to purchase a smaller wash to use in the SMT area. CAn I get some input on which wash system is preferred, batch or inline? We run high-mix, low to medium volume, with some larger boards (16"x13"). Space is somewhat a concern. So is money. WE will probably go used. We have also talked about moving the current wash, which would be a massive project in itself. Anyway, if you need more background than that. let me know. Thanks everyone

Low cost and small footprint usually dictate a batch cleaner

Some in-lines are only 3 meters (10 feet) long. Batch systems range in price from $20-35K, Small in-lines range from $35-50K.
