Seika Machinery Sees Increased Emphasis on SMT Line Process Improvements

Jun 09, 2021

Seika Machinery, Inc. has seen increased popularity and demand of its process control systems.   

Inquiries for Seika Machinery’s wetting balance testers, viscometers, paste mixers and reflow profiling video system have all increased. This is a direct a reflection of electronics assemblers placing more emphasis on improving their SMT line processes.

Seika offers process control equipment from major brands including Malcom, Unitech and Kyowa. The Malcom SWB-2 Wetting Balance Tester takes the "Dip & Look" method to the next level by actually measuring the wetting forces during the soldering process. The tester has been designed to evaluate the effectiveness of different solder and flux combinations on a standardized test coupon, or your own test pieces.

Cleaning PCBs is a delicate process in the SMT line, and Unitech PCB cleaners include a large surface vacuum that sucks up dust and particles, a small brush to pick up dirt and debris from the surface, and a soft cloth for wiping down the surface after cleaning. Kyowa strain gages accurately measure stress levels placed on PCBs during in-circuit testing or depaneling. Malcom offers a set of tools for monitoring reflow process control including checking O2 level, vibration, air flow and video recording in the oven.
