Semicon West 2018 will be taking place at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, CA, July 10-12, 2018. Semicon West is one of the leading events for the semiconductor industry. Thought leaders, businesses, and buyers who play a role in the extended electronics supply chain will come together to network and share information about new technologies and innovations. An estimated 20 to 50 thousand visitors are expected to attend this year’s event.
Blackstone-NEY Ultrasonics is excited to be participating in this year’s show. Attendees who visit the Blackstone-NEY Ultrasonics display in Booth #2209 will learn about our products, technologies, and services. Several new Blackstone-NEY Ultrasonic advanced cleaning solutions will be introduced at the show. Among the new technologies exhibited will be:
Multi- Frequency Ultrasonic Cleaning System
This is an ultrasonic cleaning system made of all stainless-steel construction. The Multi-Frequency Ultrasonic Cleaning System is great for cleaning small parts on an intermittent to semi-production basis, but is not recommended for high volume cleaning. These tanks are available for use with single or multi-frequency generators. Blackstone-NEY Ultrasonics is a recognized leader in ultrasonic generator technology. Starting with the introduction of sweeping frequency in 1988, there has been a continuous stream of development and patents covering new ultrasonic generator and transducer technology from Blackstone-NEY Ultrasonics.
This cleaning system is a multi-frequency, sweeping or non-sweeping, system. The multiMEG's four mode operation (430 kHz conventional streaming megasonics / 430 kHz dualSWEEP® megasonics / 1.3 MHz conventional streaming megasonics / 1.3 MHz dualSWEEP® megasonics) delivers higher yields in a single process tank. Combining our multiMEG technology with our advanced plate arrays and submersible designs allows integrators and existing users the ability to experience higher particle removal efficiencies while minimizing downtime associated with full module replacement.
The New Stainless-Steel GMC
This is an optional package to achieve chemical compatibility with aggressive caustic and acidic agents. The GMC series comes in two sizes the GMC 1818 and the GMC 3523. The larger size can accommodate parts with one dimension up to 35 inches and weighing up to 125 pounds. Both units are completely self-contained, are supported on casters and operate from commonly available power supplies making them easy to move where needed for either in-place or utility cleaning. Both systems include a pump and dual stainless cartridge filtration, a surface sparger, automated controls for heat, pump and ultrasonics, a lid and one standard basket. A drip pan (the open hinged lid in the case of the GMC 1818 or attached to the side of the tank in the case of the GMC 3523) allows for the draining of one parts basket while cleaning another.
CTG experts will be on hand at Semicon West 2018 to provide in-depth explanations of these and our other technologies and to offer suggestions to our customers for improving their cleaning processes.
