Grid-lok automatic SMT tooling, announces that it will display the Magna-Print universal SMT squeegee system in booth A4.431 at the upcoming Productronica 2007 exhibition and conference scheduled to take place November 13-16, 2007 at the New Munich Trade Fair Center in Munich, Germany.
The Magna-Print system consists of a patent-pending universal fit squeegee holder, infinitely adjustable paste deflectors and corresponding blades to accommodate any PCB size. The quick-change blade holder is equipped with an arrangement of magnets and other features that assist in the firm holding of the blades, thus eliminating the need for tools and loose hardware involved in blade change. Blades are changed in seconds without removing the holders from the machine.
The absence of the conventional blade clamping hardware means that there are no crevasses in which solder paste can accumulate and harden. This easy cleaning feature of the holder is further enhanced by the �no-stick� coating, making it essential for lead-free environments where there are threats of cross-contamination between assembly lines.
Currently the holder fits most DEK, MPM and EKRA printers. The user requires only one set of these holders for each printer regardless of the blade size, eliminating the need to purchase different holders for each blade length as with conventional holders. The system also includes adapters for 45� and 60� mounting, further reducing the requirement for additional holders by the user.
As a further benefit, Ovation offers a return policy that includes shipping costs, based on the customer�s complete satisfaction. The product is available through Ovation�s worldwide rep network, and more information can be found at http://www.grid-lok.com.
