Decoating of PCBA fixtures with ATRON DC – water-based process with highest operator safety

For a reliable coating process fixtures, frames and tools needs to be cleaned regularly. In most cases aggressive stripping chemicals are used which are harmful to the operators health. Furthermore, these chemicals often lack in decoating performance and laborious manual rework is necessary.

Now the world’s first, water-based decoater ATRON DC is available. This new decoater is characterized by an impressive cleaning performance with a very good material compatibility and guarantees highest operator safety.

Detection of protective coating layer defects on electronic assemblies

The ZESTRON® Coating Layer Test utilizes a black color reaction as a visual indicator of the defects in the protective coating, even in the case of μ-coatings. The test thus adds the standardized methods for coating thickness measurement by enabling rapid and non-destructive detection of closed and dense coatings. Therefore, the test can also be used during production for cost-effective sampling. 

The reliability of protective PCB assembly coatings, with regard to climate and harmful gas safety, is essentially determined by the uniform application of the conformal coating without interferences or gaps in the protective layer. In particular, common trouble areas such as solder joint edges and pore channels in coating pooling areas, when lacking a proper coating layer, have detrimental effects on the final board assembly.
