Seika Intros New Production Machinery
Tandem fluxing and wavesoldering machines.
Torrance, CA — Seika Machinery, Inc. is introducing a new advanced Solder Paste Recycling Unit that enables approximately 90 percent of waste solder paste to be recovered as solder bar. The system provides major savings in disposal costs for factory waste, a reduction in CO2 emissions, and reduced costs for solder bar — all by simply recycling waste. As an additional benefit, the recycling unit enables selection of manual mode and automatic mode using a touch screen panel.

The company is also showing its new Sawa Eco-Roll large-roll model that cleans wiper rolls up to 24-in. (610mm). 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. Tests have shown that repeated cleaning of wiper rolls does not compromise their performance when cleaning stencil apertures.

Also new is the 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 huge reduction in operating costs. In addition, the system cleans and dries in just five minutes.

The company is also introducing the Seitec Bravo STS-2533 IN H & SJ Soldering System, specially designed for in-line and modular selective soldering. The programmable system uses a special nozzle design and a spray fluxer unit, enabling high-quality soldering of leads and pads. Additional features include a conveyor with roller, a specially-designed solder pot and a drawer-type solder pot — making the two-unit system an excellent soldering solution for mass production.
