I too would go with something like the Grid-lock. We use Red-E-sets from production solutions. They are similar to the grid-locks but don't use air.

We are looking for a new way to support PCAs in the DEK. I am trying to push for getting grid-locks but have been told they cost to much. Right now we are trying out another support system (hell if I can remember what they are called) like the grid-l

We are using the Red-E Sets on our DEK Infinities and they are working fairly well. There are some issues but the setup time beat the Form Flex and was more reliable than the Autoflex in our machines. We looked at Grid Lock. This seemed to solve all

Good Morning, I feel that the Grid Lock system (with stealth mode) is the best system for absolute support. For us, it came down to spending 5K or 30K. We went with the 5K. The system we got is not perfect but serves our needs. The Grid lock resets h

I have a support question concerning setting the gridlock tooling in manual mode on a MPM Momentum Elite. I am printing the top side (bottom is populated with parts) of a thin, flimsy PCB. The Grid lock tooling bows the PCB upwards in Auto mode, beca

Would be my pick if I was putting a line together and was buying used. You should be paying around $35K-$40K and no more for such a machine. As far as grid-lock...........I'd probably toss that system in the garbage.

Not as wack as Nancy Pelosi being Speaker of House. But back to the topic, Grid Lock kicks ass. You can even adjust the amount of force of the pushers that come up to the board. Your pads must be right on the edge. Might want to look into break-a

We use the Gel Flex from MPM. Made a different base for each machine. Works well for most boards, but you may need additional pin support for larger boards. No tools, no vaccum hoses, no missprints (which Grid Lock is famous for), and best of all

HI MUCH BETTER TO use grid lock than to use gel flex. you can only buy gel flex to speedline.

Depends on your printer. We have vacuum nests that make Grid Lock difficult to install. We also use the Gels on our placement equipment.
