Lockheed Martin Chooses Austin American Technology for Cleaning Needs

Jul 09, 2020

Austin American Technology today announced their newest machine sale to Lockheed Martin, which purchased an X30-A Vertical Format Batch Cleaning System.

Lockheed Martin is one of the most renowned companies in the world. With 110,000 employees, billions in revenue, and 375+ locations across the globe, Lockheed Martin Corporation is an American aerospace, defense, arms, security, and advanced technologies company with worldwide interests. Whether it's protecting citizens or advancing the boundaries of science, their missions are some of the most important and challenging in the world.

This means they can only use the best of the best when it comes to their equipment, which lead them to purchase the X30-A stencil cleaner from AAT. “It is just the right decision for our Clearwater site,” commented Axel Vargas, Senior Manufacturing Engineer, Lockheed Martin. “We have two units that have been in uninterrupted service for over two decades. We typically prefer standardization of our production equipment. In this case, the performance, combined with the longevity these cleaners offer, is difficult to mimic. Top that with second-to-none US based customer support.”

Austin American Technology’s X30™ Vertical Format Batch Cleaning Systems provide maximum chemistry flexibility to meet a wide variety of applications. Aqueous, saponification, semi-aqueous, alcohols and hybrid solvents can be utilized to remove flux residues, solder pastes, inks, adhesives and other residues from boards, stencils, or tooling used in the production process. Each system incorporates filtration and a selectable open-loop or closed-loop configuration to address environmental and safety concerns.

Consistent cleaning results are ensured with a patented method of rotational spraying that creates zones of constantly changing force to provide superior performance. X30™ cleaning systems are fully automated and do not require product transference between wash, rinse and dry cycles. The cleaner’s automated, low-profile lift and compact body design facilitate easy load/unload and provide one of the smallest footprints in the industry. And, the X30™ is supported by the extensive experience and knowledge base of Austin American Technology’s applications engineering team.

AAT was founded in 1986, as a provider of SMT rework systems and process engineering testing services. In 1988, their focus shifted toward the high-end electronics cleaning segment with the introduction of the world’s first automated stencil cleaner. In 2000, Austin American Technology became a market leader in inline cleaning systems with the introduction of the award-winning HydroJet® series. Patented cleaning and drying technologies were incorporated into an energy and space-efficient format to set new standards for performance and low cost of ownership. Building on this success, AAT introduced the MicroJet® inline flip chip cleaner to provide high volume cleaning capability in a small footprint.  In 2013 AAT introduced the world’s smallest most efficient inline cleaner, the NanoJet®.
