Seika Machinery, Inc., a leading provider of advanced machinery, materials and engineering services, will showcase its proven, advanced machinery in Booth #2401 at the upcoming IPC APEX Expo, scheduled to take place February 28 - March 1, 2012 at the San Diego Convention Center in California.

Seika Machinery offers various options for the new McDry Feeder Cabinet line for easy dry storage and reconditioning of tape and reel MSDs on feeders and faster operation on the floor for pick-and-place machines. These include the RFID MSL tracking capability, sliding reel shelves for both the DXU-1002-1000 large size cabinets and the DXU-580AF for smaller quantity storage ideal to be set in the line for prompt access and storage of MSDs on tape feeders.

Seika offers ergonomic options in both sizes as well as the cart/feeder system in the larger DXU-1002-1000 cabinet. This model provides a versatile solution for dry storage options in that the five standard shelves are part of the package and can be replaced should requirements change.

Seika's new Solder Paste Recycling machine enables 100 percent of the metal content of waste solder paste to be recovered as solder bar. The system provides a major decrease in disposal costs for factory waste, a reduction in CO2 emissions and reduced costs for solder bar as a result of recycling waste.

Seika will feature the new Sawa Eco-Roll large roll model that cleans wiper rolls up to 24". The Sawa Eco-Roll eliminates waste and saves money by reusing wiper rolls for printing machines. In addition to providing a reduction in waste, use of the wiper roll cleaner results in reduced CO2 emissions in just 20 minutes.

Wiper rolls are widely used for under stencil cleaning to wipe off solder paste in the SMT printing process. Most of them are used only once, then are disposed of with other solder waste. Recycling wiper rolls not only reduces emissions but also reduces lumber usage. In addition, tests have shown that repeated cleaning of wiper rolls does not compromise the performance when cleaning stencil apertures.

Seika also will highlight the new Sawa Ecobrid handheld and fully automatic low-VOC emission stencil cleaner. The cleaner provides up to a 66 percent reduction in CO2 emissions, as well as a huge reduction in running costs. Additionally, the system cleans and dries in just five minutes

Also on display, the Seitec Bravo STS-2533 IN H & SJ Soldering System is specially-designed for in-line and modular selective soldering. The programmable system features a special nozzle design and a spray fluxer unit, enabling flawless soldering of leads and pads. Additional features include a conveyor with roller, a specially-designed solder pot and a drawer-type solder pot. The Bravo ST-2533 from Seitec is the ideal soldering solution for mass production.
