Does any one have any experience with the transition automation permalex squeegee blade (I called them and they couldn't tell me much), or any blade other than the typical nickle coated spring steel. Part of our production has been moved (by our cus

We have been using TA permalex blades for year, they work great! They will even work with you on custom designed blades to fit custom blade holders. If you're having trouble with solder paste sticking to the blades contact the vendor for some solut

The TA blades work very well. I understand that they are now available with the permalex coating over the whole blade rather than just the edge for no cost up. This is advertised to reduce sticking. As Boca says, try the epoxy vendor. Maybe the p

Dear Folks, could anyone give me an advice who supplies dicing blades (2 or 4") for cutting blended, through hole plated PCBs (1-3 mm thickness). Who has made good experiences (tool life, duration) with which blades? Are there any good application i

Curtis, They have a 'permalex' coating bonded to the metal. We see no signs of flaking. They are pricey but they do work, we had metal blades from the OEM, they were absolute trash (not MPM). We run 16-6 and they last at least 4 to six months in

Hello Terry We have found that the best angle for metal blades is 37 to 45 degrees. Metal blades won't enter the stencil opening, rubber does. Metal blades are with out question the best way to print. If you go over 45 degress the blades will leav

Hi All For the past 8 years we have been screen printing paste succesfully using hard rubber blades. Over the past 12 months we have changed paste from lead to lead free, the board size has changed from 300x200mm to 120x90mm and we have also moved
