Stencil Cleaner | 28 August, 2000

Hi everybody !!!

I`m from Quebec city ( Canada ) and last time I asked a question in this site, I had a lot of excellent answers and also a lot of technical informations from all around the world.

Thanks a lot

Here is my new question :

I`m loocking for a Stencil Cleaner and I was wondering how many different companies sell this quind of machines. With this stencil cleaner, I want to clean solder paste and adhesive (loctite #3614).

Thank you

Hi Francois, I made a recommendation to this question, some one else posted it earlier this month. I have done a little research and evaluated a couple of machines on site. If you require further information regarding the one I purchased for our company then contact me offline.

The one I choose cleaned adhesive, solder paste and misprinted PCB's, to a very high degree.

Francois, It appears from "G's" admission in his earlier posting that his "study" was based on the evaluation of 2 pieces of equipment - one high pressure spray system and one ultrasonic system. There are other alternatives...low pressure, high volume spray systems, capable of cleaning paste AND adhesive residues on a 24 hr/7 day performance demand. If ROBUST is what you want, please contact me for further details.

Hi Francois,

There are a lot of nice cleaners out there. The one thing I wanted to point out is to be careful when ordering one machine for both glue and paste. Some machines requires special rubber o-rings when using glue thinner (esp Loctite). Also, inquire about filter media when looking at doing both in one machine.
