Aculon NanoClear Stencil NanoCoating Solution for Stencils Wins NPI Award
San Diego, CA | Posted on April 28th, 2014
NanoClear is rapidly becoming the de facto standard in stencil nanocoating technology as it reduces bridging, reduces insufficients, reduces print variation due to crisper more consistent prints and lowers overall operating costs due to reduced under stencil wiping and use of consumables.
NanoClear is gaining broad based support from Stencil producers, CEM's, major Paste suppliers and the Cleaning companies. The stencil producers are trying to help deliver the best stencil to their customers. The CEM's want better printing but also to save money. The CEM's real world experience is demonstrating that NanoClear is not just for hard to print boards! Several of the major CEM's are finding that in addition to better printing that for the nominal cost ($25 cost per wipe) of NanoClear they are saving thousands of dollars in printing consumables! The paste companies are recommending NanoClear as it improves the quality of the printing and the cleaning companies are recommending it dramatically reduces the magnitude of the understencil cleaning challenges.
"Clearly the team at Circuits Assembly felt the technology was compelling enough to be featured on the February cover and also be selected as the most innovative product for stencils released in the past year.," said Edward Hughes, CEO of Aculon. "The ability to enhance the performance of stencils with an easy to apply wipe is critical as manufacturers push the boundaries of stencil printing demanding smaller apertures, better reliability and lower operating cost. As experts in surface modification and a proven supplier to the stencil industry we are pleased that Aculon NanoClear is getting much media and customer recognition."
