Austin American Technology receives prestigious award for the Mega ION® cleaning system

Oct 03, 2020

Austin American Technology (AAT) is pleased toannounce that it received a 2020 GLOBAL Technology Award in the category of Cleaning Equipment for its Mega ION®. The award was announced during a Virtual Awards Ceremony on Tuesday, September 29, 2020.

AAT’s Mega ION® cleaning system is designed for solvent based, high reliability applications requiring product cleanliness verification (IPC ROSE Testing). It is used for final clean prior to conformal coat, encapsulation or other sealing operations used to protect electronic modules.

Ionic testing is based on “ROSE”, allowing the system to quantify ionic contamination of the circuit board before or after cleaning. This allows the operator to clean and test the circuit boards within one system.

The Mega ION® is compatible with multiple solvents including but not limited to DI water, water alcohol mixtures, pure alcohol, evaporative hydrocarbons (like cyclohexane) commercial solvent blends not requiring a water rinse.

The MEGA ION® system operates in a closed-loop environment with wash bath life maintained through the use of an integrated ionic exchange filter system. This provides a rapid economic payback based upon solvent and solvent disposal savings combined with less maintenance downtime and high production uptime.

The GLOBAL Technology Awards have recognized the very best new innovations in the printed circuit assembly and packaging industries since 2005. The prestigious awards contest has been bringing together the global SMT and advanced packaging industry in a celebration of the companies and people that are achieving the highest standards and driving our industry forward.

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®.
