Speedline Technologies Inc. has developed the MPM Gel-FlexT Conformal Board Support System, the Flux Extraction System (a special feature of the new Electrovert OmniExcel 7 Reflow Oven), the MPM Maxi-Miser Pump Technology, and the MPM BridgeVision inspection.

According to the company, the Electrovert OmniExcel 7 Reflow Oven sets new operating efficiency benchmarks by consuming up to 50 percent less power and up to 35 percent less nitrogen than conventional designs. The new seven-zone oven compliments the OmniExcel 10 zone oven to deliver a complete series of reflow systems for all production and processing needs. It also incorporates a patent-pending, self-cleaning Flux Extraction System (FES) that reduces maintenance requirements.

Consisting of nonconductive polyurethane elastomer gel enclosed within a durable membrane shell and mounted to a magnetic base, the MPM Gel-Flex tooling is a true conformal board-support system. The compressible gel material provides gentle compliance to delicate bottom-side components and leads while providing firm support for the entire board surface.

The MPM Enhanced 2D with BridgeVision is a patent-pending method of analyzing acquired images using texture for assessment of paste deposits. Coupled with 2D verification on the AP Excel platform and AP HiE NT (as upgrades), this method of identification and analysis of potential bridging defects operates simultaneously with normal 2D paste inspection.

Meanwhile, Speedline claims that the MPM Maxi-Miser Pump Technology reduces materials costs, facilitates quick changeovers, and expands the range of usable materials. The pump represents a different approach to paste management, featuring a smaller paste chamber that reduces material waste and compaction, and disposable inserts for simplified cleaning. The pump also uses standard paste cartridges and MPM's patent pending, pressurized printing technology to deliver quality print results. It includes a disposable, quick-change blade system, and is compatible with MPM AP ExcelT platforms.
