Transition Automation Introduces First Bonded Blade Double-Edged Assembly
Thursday, November 16, 2017

PLX-YAM-DBL-REV22 TransAutoIn an industry first, Transition Automation has introduced a precision Permalex® Edge metal squeegee assembly designed to improve the printing performance of single-squeegee YAMAHA printers. The new squeegee assembly design eliminates fasteners altogether, constituting a major improvement over first generation Permalex assemblies for YAMAHA.

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 219mm to 500mm.

Transition Automation will have the new assemblies on display at IPC/APEX 2018 from February 27 to March 1, 2018 at the San Diego Convention Center, in Booth #3603.
