PNC Inc. has announced another addition to its continually expanding assembly department: an inline electronic cleaning system called the Nanojet from Austin American Technology.
Capable of both water and aqueous chemical cleaning applications, the NanoJet inline system also offers easy accessibility and simple maintenance to keep up with PNC's ever increasing needs while never sacrificing on the quality of the job being done. Employing a progressive cleaning system, the unit is capable of cleaning all flux residues and other foreign objects that may occur during the assembly process.
This small yet powerful machine has a patented Mach drying system that allows it to meet the needs of large production lots without increasing the machine’s footprint itself. The 15 horsepower blower powering this system ensures that water is forced out of all small areas of a populated board. PNC has partnered with Zestron, using VIGON N 600 Chemistry in the cleaning sump.
Most importantly, this machine is efficient with regards to water, chemical and power consumption—effectively reducing them while increasing system-wide effectivity. Water savings are automatic with the machine’s built-in DI closed looped water re-cycling system; facility tap or DI water is only used for the initial filling.
With this purchase, PNC have reiterated their commitment to the Total Concept and bringing their new assembly division up to the high standards everyone has come to expect from their fabrication which is the largest in its region. CEO and president Sam Sangani said, "We are firmly committed to being able to provide our customers with the absolute best complete PCB solutions from design all the way to assembly. After our recent acquisitions of the pick and place, the x-ray BGA inspection machine and now the aqueous cleaner, we do not plan on stopping any time soon. As far as I am concerned, we can never stop improving."
