Permalex Metal Squeegees
Transition Automation Permalex Edge Metal Squeegees are a premium brand of metal squeegee used for SMTl and Microelectronics printing applications. This leading product incorporates many customer needs such as long service life, improved printing quality and ease of use.
Transition Automation Permalex Edge Squeegees directly support your lead-free process by assuring maximum print quality despite the reduced wetting and joining performance of lead-free materials.
The long life of Permalex blades reduces wasteful material maintenance and down-time cycles.
Permalex® is a multi-step metallurgical bonding process which produces a smooth, durable metal squeegee with a hard, low-friction edge designed to prevent stencil wear. Permalex Edge Metal Squeegees contain a unique base alloy and our special Permalex coating to provide superior performance.
Common Problems with Rubber Squeegees
Note the scavenging, pumping and deformation to the solder deposit as a result of using rubber blades.
Better Results with Permalex
Permalex blades avoid the common scavenging and deformation to solder paste deposits with a superior design.
Paste Deposits using Standard Polymer Blades
This diagram (courtesy of Intergraph Corporation) shows solder deposits made with a standard polymer squeegee. The diagram clearly shows uneven dog-bone deposits resulting from scooping and scavenging.
Paste Deposits using Permalex Blades
Permalex Edge Metal squeegees eliminate pumping and scavenging improving solder paste deposit quality. The smooth lubricated edge reduces stencil pulling and stretching, improving pad registration and stencil life.
