Hetech is investing in the growth of Australian Manufacturing
– Hetech’s second manufacturing facility is now open.
– Now the owner of the state-of-the-art PCB cleaning machine – Ultra 2012LE.
– Developing young talent through our Hetech apprentice program.
With a second manufacturing facility recently opened, Hetech is committed to investing in the growth and expansion of the manufacturing industry in Australia.
At Hetech we strongly agree with adopting new technologies and ensuring we have state-of-the-art machinery. Recently, we purchased a PCB cleaning machine – Ultra 2012LE, Vapor Degreaser.
The Ultra 2012LE is a leader in the field of Printed Circuit Board cleaning. PCBs are sometimes exposed to conditions like high humidity and extreme temperatures, they also need to last for sometimes decades, and because of this, it is vital PCBs function without fail.
With all of this in mind, what happens at the cleaning stage of production is vital, the Ultra 2012LE improves PCB reliability through the cleaning process. For a PCB to be reliable, a number of factors play a pivotal role, just some of the threats to its reliability include:
- Production contaminants such as dust and soils on a PCB run a risk of malfunction.
- Small PCBs and complex PCBs with multilayered layouts can be challenging to clean at the level required.
Hetech’s new Vapor degreaser machine provides state-of-the-art cleaning for PCBs. Vapor degreasing uses cleaning fluid immersion, combined with vapour rinsing and vapour drying, to clean PCBs down to the submicron range removing all types of residue.
The cleaning fluid used has a low surface tension allowing it to permeate the entire board, including under and in-between tightly-spaced and low-mounted components. Vapour degreasers recycle and reuse the cleaning fluid for hundreds of hours before the fluid is refreshed, making it a cost-effective and environmentally sound cleaning method.
