Ascentech, LLC, a well-known distributor of leading-edge process optimization equipment for electronics manufacturing, announced today that the company has sold more than 100 Gensonic Stencil Cleaners in North America. The Gensonic is a manually-operated, ultrasonic transducer unit for cleaning stencils used in printing solder pastes and adhesives. It can be used either directly on the printer or at a separate cleaning station.In making the announcement, Randy Allinson, president of Ascentech, said, “We are very happy to announce that we have now broken through the century mark, and have shipped over 100 Gensonic ultrasonic stencil cleaners in North America. This small, low-cost cleaner has demonstrated the ability to clean the most demanding SMT stencil designs, proving that quite often, clean simplicity in approach and design can solve the most complex problems.”
“Most soldering defects have their origins in the solder paste printing process,” Randy continued. “A clean stencil is one of the best means of minimizing solder paste printing defects. This is perhaps why the demand for effective, reliable SMT stencil cleaning solutions is constantly increasing,” he concluded.
