Seika Machinery, Inc., a leading provider of advanced machinery, materials and engineering services, will highlight green technologies at the upcoming SMTA Dallas and Houston Expo & Tech Forums. The SMTA Dallas Expo & Tech Forum is scheduled to take place Tuesday, March 1, 2011 at the Richardson Civic Center in Richardson, TX and the SMTA Houston Expo & Tech Forum is scheduled to take place Thursday, March 3, 2011 at the Stafford Centre in Stafford, TX.

Seika's new Solder Paste Recycling Unit enables approximately 90 percent of waste solder paste to be recovered as solder bar. The system provides a major decrease in disposal costs for factory waste, a reduction in CO2 emissions, and reduced costs for solder bar as a result of recycling waste. As an additional benefit, the recycling unit enables selection of manual mode and automatic mode using a touch screen panel.

Seika will feature the new Sawa Eco-Roll large roll model that cleans wiper rolls up to 24". The Sawa Eco-Roll eliminates waste and saves money by reusing wiper rolls for printing machines. In addition to providing a reduction in waste, use of the wiper roll cleaner results in reduced CO2 emissions in just 20 minutes.

Wiper rolls are widely used for under stencil cleaning to wipe off solder paste in the SMT printing process. Most of them are used only once, then are disposed of with other solder waste. Recycling wiper rolls not only reduces emissions but also reduces lumber usage. Additionally, tests have shown that repeated cleaning of wiper rolls does not compromise the performance when cleaning stencil apertures.

Seika also will highlight the new Sawa Ecobrid handheld and fully automatic low-VOC emission stencil cleaner. The cleaner provides up to a 66 percent reduction in CO2 emissions as well as a significant reduction in running costs. Additionally, the system cleans and dries in just five minutes

Sawa Stencil Cleaners are widely used in the Japanese electronics industry to ensure high yields when screen printing solder paste onto PCBs. Normal cloth wipe cleaning of stencils cannot completely remove solder paste especially in fine-pitch applications because a small amount of solder balls have a tendency to adhere to the corners of the apertures.

Seika also will highlight its new low-cost PCB McDry Electronic Drying Storage Cases, featuring new economy prices with the high performance and value that McDry is known for.

McDry units come in 1 and 3 percent RH models to comply with the strict standards required for proper storage of moisture-sensitive materials requiring ultra-low humidity levels.

Product literature also will be distributed for all of Seika Machinery’s products. For more information about Seika’s full product line, visit Seika at the SMTA Dallas and Houston Expo & Tech Forums or visit http://www.seikausa.com.

Seika Machinery, Inc. (SMI) is a subsidiary of Seika Corporation, Japan and member of the Mitsubishi Global Group. SMI provides electronics manufacturers with advanced machinery, superior materials and engineering services.
