Transition Automation, Inc., today unveils a new paste retainers design which improves the management of solder paste within the printing area. The new product "SPR" helps eliminate leakage of solder paste out of the print area by way of a floating spring supported paste retainer attached to the end of the squeegee holder. 

Unlike previous fixed paste retainers, the SPR applies a constant pressure downward – and glides along the stencil surface setting up a better dam and seal to prevent paste leakage.  The new product is in stock and available immediately by replacing the code –PR with –SPR on all Transition Automation Universal Holder part numbers.
