Seika to Feature Sawa SC-500GE and Product Literature at SMTA Toronto

Apr 21, 2009

TORRANCE, CA � April 2009 � Seika Machinery, Inc., a leading provider of advanced machinery, materials and engineering services, announces that it will exhibit the Sawa SC-500GE portable cleaner, as well as product literature for all Seika products at the upcoming SMTA Toronto Tabletop Exhibition, scheduled to take place May 20-21, 2009 at the Crowne Plaza in Toronto, ON.

The Sawa SC-500GE removes solder balls from stencil apertures after normal wipe cleaning. A small handheld ultrasonic cleaning head (2.36" diameter) is manually applied over apertures with IPA, water or a non-VOC solvent. During application of the cleaning head, a small tray containing a foam pad soaked with solvent is held underneath the stencil to capture solder balls dislodged by the cleaning head. The Sawa 500GE can clean stencils without removing them from the printing machine, allowing stencils to be cleaned in just a few minutes.

Sawa Stencil Cleaners are widely used in the Japanese Electronics Industry to ensure high yields when screen printing solder paste onto PCBs. Normal cloth wipe cleaning of stencils cannot completely remove solder paste especially in fine-pitch applications because a small amount of solder balls have a tendency to adhere to the corners of the apertures. Sawa Stencil Cleaners are able to completely remove solder paste using ultrasonic vibration and require no special solvents as they are effective with isopropyl alcohol, a water-based solvent or any other solvent.

Product literature also will be distributed for all Seika Machinery's products. For more information about the Sawa SC-500GE portable cleaner or Seika's full product line, visit Seika at the SMTA Toronto Tabletop Exhibition or visit
