Ovation Products� Magna-Print Squeegee System Wins a 2008 SMT China Vision Award

Apr 15, 2008

Bethlehem, PA - Ovation Products, innovator and manufacturer of award winning Grid-lok automatic SMT tooling, announces that it has been awarded a 2008 SMT China Vision Award for receiving the highest score in the category of Maintainability/Repairability/Service for its innovative Magna-Print universal SMT squeegee system during an awards ceremony that took place April 8, 2008 at the Shanghai Everbright Convention & Exhibition International Hotel during NEPCON China/EMT China.

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.

The SMT China VISION Awards program is sponsored by SMT China Magazine and honors the top categories of various manufacturing-related products, materials and equipment. The purpose of this program is to recognize, reward and celebrate excellence in the Asian electronics industry.
