Transition Automation To Present Paper at Nepcon Shenzhen Show

Aug 14, 2008

Mark J. Curtin, Transition Automation's President will present a paper titled: �Metal Squeegee Design: The Vital Part of the SMT Printing Process that every SMT Engineer should know about�

North Billerica, Massachusetts, USA � Metal Squeegees are a key innovation in SMT manufacturing which give way to high productivity and volume output with minimal equipment downtime and product quality loss. Despite their small size and overall cost, they remain a critical and often overlooked element in the planning and implementation of SMT production. Distinct specifications are required for metal squeegee implementation compared to operations that have rubber or plastic squeegees in use. This paper presents design guidelines and information to assist engineers in the transformation to high-quality metal squeegee based SMT line production.

This paper will be presented at the Chrysanthemum Hall, 5th Floor of the Shenzhen Exhibition Center on August 27, from 15:00-16:00 in the session titled: The latest development of printing technology.
