Transition Automation Updates Innovative Paste RetainersSeptember 27, 2023 | Transition Automation, Inc.
Estimated reading time: Less than a minute
Transition Automation, Inc. has improved the unique Paste Retainer System that is included in the company’s line of squeegee holder systems. The Soft-Touch™ Paste retainers now have a dual pin locking that better secures the white dam portion. Additionally, the attachment screws have been upgraded to Alloy Steel compared to the previous galvanized steel. The spring element is made thicker, giving the design more impact resistance. The total part count was reduced by 8 pcs per set. The white dam may be adjusted in or out based on the position of the squeegee blade, and the entire assembly can be adjusted up or down to push against the stencil or to ride above it slightly. This new design affords faster maintenance for cleaning and easer use.
The Soft-Touch Paste retainer system is an integral part of Transition’s advanced squeegee holder system. These devices help keep the solder paste inside the print area.
Transition Automation, Inc. recently received a large order for Advanced Holder and Blade Assemblies compatible with DEK printers from Rotec BV in Belgium.
