Senior Systems Technology's Board Wash Holding Fixture - 1020-1

Senior Systems Technology's Board Wash Holding Fixture - 1020-1

The board wash holding fixture allows open exposure support for PCBA (Printed Circuit Board Assembly), post solder flux removal via high pressure hot water spray and hot air-knife impingement. Design simplicity, along with stainless steel and aluminum construction result in a long-term life cycle. "V" groove PCBA containment allows the assembly to literally "float" between the top and bottom washer conveyors, and their associated water and air streams. This protects the PCBA from the two washer conveyor wire-forms which tend to snag components causing damaged or missing components. This design, according to the company, virtually eliminates that rework requirement often caused by the conveyors and/or the "protective" wire-form cage. This fixture improves flux removal and post wash drying, and is suitable for use in both the leaded and lead-free production processes. Open construction allows significantly improved Post soldering flux removal and process drying, along with shortened loading/unloading cycle time by virtue of the fixture "clamping" action resulting from the opposing "V" grooves. A permanently mounted fixture support base allows vertical capture of fixture and access to rapid loading and unloading of PCBA's into and out of the fixture. This product allows a significant cost reduction, quality improvement and performance improvement over the screened cage alternative.
