A first in screen cleaning systems available from Altus
Altus Group, a supplier of capital equipment in the UK and Ireland, continue to add new products to their portfolio with the latest innovation in screen cleaning now available.
Kolb’s next-generation AQUBE® MV8 sTWIN cleaning system, introduced for the first time at the SMT Hybrid & Packaging show in May, drew a lot of attention from visitors and Altus has since seen increased interest in the innovative machine.
AQUBE® MV8 sTWIN is the first dual chamber PowerSpray® system for the parallel or sequential cleaning of two screens or stencils. With the capability to clean two stencils of up to 900 x 800 mm, it makes it highly suitable for large-scale manufacturing.
A common shortcoming of systems with double capacity is the requirement to wait until two stencils are ready for cleaning, or until the running cleaning cycle has ended. AQUBE® MV8 sTWIN can start cleaning one stencil immediately and a second one later (sequential) or in parallel, which provides excellent cleaning results in a short cycle time.
Tony Sweetman, sales manager at Altus said: “The AQUBE range of Kolb cleaning systems not only provide our customers with German build quality and great cleaning results; but it also has the added software and traceability capabilities that our customers are seeking with industry 4.0 becoming a reality. This particular machine has two separated and individually functioning chambers for stencil cleaning so that our customers have a flexible solution to meet their requirements.
“Since kolb introduced the new system at the German show we have received much interest from our customers in the UK and Ireland. It is already proving to be a popular addition to the portfolio.”
The new kolb AQUBE® systems next-generation cleaning systems are even more efficient, compact, easy to handle and maintain and pre-equipped for extended water management and ready for the smart factory.
