Solder paste deposition made easier
23 May 2011
Ovation Products has designed an enhancement to its Magna-Print universal blade holding system that makes paste deposition even more robust.
The new Magna-Print DeFlex technology takes the guesswork out of manual paste deflector modifications, delivering an auto-adjusting system that improves the uniformity of solder paste deposition.
A single blade holder for all squeegee blade sizes, Magna-Print’s streamlined design allows for simple, fast blade changeover without requiring any special tools. Now, with DeFlex, the system offers even greater process control. Current market-available paste deflectors are rigid and can only be adjusted using a tool, which takes time and lacks precision. Magna-Print DeFlex and Magna-Print blades are simply and easily changed into and out of the universal blade holder with ease; no special tools are required. Plus, Magna-Print DeFlex automatically adjusts to the height of the stencil.
Mark Briant, Asia and Americas Sales Manager at Ovation, explains the significance of DeFlex technology. “Improper paste deflector height position can lead to problems such as material waste and stencil damage,” says Briant. “Magna-Print DeFlex reduces the chance of operator error from manual, tedious adjustments to squeegee and deflector height by offering a system with the ability to self-adjust to stencil height, which delivers far more reliable and robust paste deposition.”
Magna-Print DeFlex is available as part of the Magna-Print universal squeegee blade technology, which comes equipped with a blade locking system, a wide variety of squeegee blades and types, angle converters and a choice of deflectors.
