Ovation on Booth 1173 at APEX is focused on innovative tools that optimize customers’ print processes to deliver great returns on investment. Taking centre stage is Grid-Lok Gold, the company’s latest fully automatic tooling solution for board and substrate support being launched at APEX 2010. Accompanying is Magna Print, a universal squeegee blade holder and paste deflector system – complete with compelling special APEX offer.

Launching at APEX, Grid-Lok Gold offers the same acclaimed automation, high density pin array and sensitive locking technology as its sibling, HD Grid-Lok. But the new Gold standard goes further with an enhanced design and foolproof electrical connectivity ergonomics to offer flexible, reliable tooling at the touch of a button. Grid-Lok Gold also features a half-size control enclosure for easier integration into host equipment.

Grid-Lok Gold is easy to use and accommodates diverse product demands from basic SMT to high-density double-sided assemblies. Once the substrate is loaded, the unique system automatically takes control to gently raise the high density array of pneumatically-controlled pins. These conform to the board topography, including underside components, and lock firmly into place. The support pin array maintains its configuration until independently reset for the next board. Grid-Lok Gold eliminates operator intervention and reduces support tooling set-up to less than 20 seconds.

A simple tool that reduces costs and simplifies inventory, Magna-Print™ is an innovative universal squeegee blade holder and paste deflector system. It is an ideal solution to the problems of maintaining multiple squeegee blades and holders to accommodate diverse PCB sizes.

At the core of Magna-Print is unique technology that deploys magnetic blade location and a patented blade-locking mechanism to deliver exceptional stability. The robust system is easy to use, permitting quick and efficient product changeover in a matter of seconds. The proven Magna-Print design also allows blades to be removed easily for cleaning with negligible maintenance.

To add to the obvious commercial appeal of Magna-Print, the Ovation team is offering two sets of squeegee blades free of charge with any Magna-Print system purchased at APEX.

"With both the new Grid-Lok Gold and Magna-Print systems, we’re helping manufacturers drive down costs by enhancing efficiency and reducing stoppage time to boost productivity – and then we’re contributing directly to the bottom line with our free Magna-Print blades special APEX deal," says Dave Simmons, Product Support Engineer.
