TCU

Precision temperature control unit designed for solder paste applications.

The Temperature control unit (TCU) has been designed to meet a very specific process requirement within the electronics sector. The reliable placement or surface mount devices during PCB assembly requires that during the initial printing stage the solder paste is maintained at a temperature which ensures optimum performance.

With assembly now on a global basis the variation of local climate and factory conditions means that this optimum level cannot be maintained without some form of intervention.

The design of the TCU includes cooling and and heating elements which ensure that the temperature within the printing environment is maintained within 1°C of the optimum paste performance temperature regardless of whether the factory ambient is above or below this level.

Key features of the TCU

Reverse flow air (RFA) technology

The RFA technology feature causes a fall in velocity and air direction change. Larger particulate falls out of the airstream into the filter’s drop out chamber. With less particulate entering the filter media the filter life is significantly increased, enhancing filter capture performance and ensure longer life.

ProTECT service plan

Our PROtect LEV service plan and compliance certification has been designed to give you the peace of mind that your LEV (Local Exhaust Ventilation) systems are being expertly maintained throughout their working life and you are kept within government guidelines and regulations in the UK.
