Metcal announces that it has been awarded a 2015 EM Asia Innovation Award in the category of Rework & Repair for its APR-2000-SCS Scarab Site Cleaning System. The award was presented to the company during an April 22, 2015 ceremony at the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition & Convention Center during NEPCON China. This marks the 10th award that OK International has received from the electronics industry.

The cost and complexity of today’s electronic assemblies are forcing manufacturers to reexamine the tools and techniques in operation today. Contactless cleaning of component pads prior to component replacement is a growing need in the industry. The Scarab Site Cleaning System addresses current and future industry needs with an automated system capable of cleaning components pads without contact. The motorized design allows the system to clean without contact component pads up to 50mm x 50mm within a 101mm x 101 mm area.

OK International is very excited to win this award for our Scarab Site Cleaning System,” commented Ian Orpwood, Director of Sales – Asia. “By adding the Scarab to the existing Scorpion Rework Systems, a comprehensive PCB rework solution is available to customers. This innovative product provides customers with the flexibility to use the Scarab and Scorpion together or as individual products. The combination of outstanding functionality with flexibility provides a creative solution for our customers’ most challenging rework needs.”

Established in 2006, the EM Asia Innovation Awards program strives to recognize and celebrate excellence in the Asian electronics industry, inspiring companies to achieve the highest standards and push the industry forward.
