TORRANCE, CA — March 2010 — Seika Machinery, Inc., a leading provider of advanced machinery, materials and engineering services, announces that it will debut its new green technology systems in booth 407 at the upcoming IPC/APEX conference and exhibition, scheduled to take place April 6-8, 2010 at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV.

Seika will introduce the Sawa Eco-Roll, which eliminates waste and saves money by reusing wiper rolls for printing machines. The SC-ER360 cleans wiper rolls in just 20 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 can work with most solvents recommended by paste manufacturers.

Also at the show, Seika will introduce its new Solder Paste Recycling Unit. The environmentally conscious system enables approximately 90 percent of waste solder paste to be recovered as solder bar. The system provides a major decrease in disposal costs for factory waste, a reduction in CO2 emissions, and reduced costs for solder bar as a result of recycling waste.

In approximately 34 to 45 minutes, the Solder Paste Recycling Unit turns wasted solder paste into solder bar. As an additional benefit, the recycling unit enables selection of manual mode and automatic mode using a touch screen panel.
