Transition Automation has introduced a Permalex Edge metal squeegee assembly designed to improve the printing performance of single-squeegee Yamaha printers. The squeegee assembly design eliminates fasteners altogether, constituting a major improvement over first generation Permalex assemblies. They will be on display at Apex 2018, from February 27 to March 1, 2018, at the San Diego Convention Center.
The first-generation assemblies included a row of custom fasteners that would hold the squeegee and clamp bar to the main structure of the squeegee assembly. The new design includes a proprietary adhesive and uniquely formed mating surfaces that maximize bond and surface area between the blade and holder, eliminating the need for fasteners. The result is a flush, flat, and feature-free surface for the solder paste to roll and print along the stencil. The assembly is also easy to clean and maintain during non-production pauses.
The new assemblies are assigned part number PLX-YAM-DBL-C-XX-PR, and are available 10 days A.R.O. These assemblies may be purchased in lengths from 219 mm to 500 mm.
