(Alameda, CA) Simco-Ion has introduced a new product line of ultra-small ionizers, the ionONE line. Our first two models are the Micro S (for “spot”) and Micro SA (“spot air-assist”).
The major advantage the Micro S and Micro SA offers customers is their small size—roughly 2.6” x 1.6” x 0.7” (67 mm x 40 mm x 17 mm). They are perfect for use in applications where space is at an absolute premium, and ionization requirements are mild to moderate. Both models provide excellent self-calibrating ion balance and easy maintenance. We anticipate using the S and SA for:
- Ionizing the area around pick-and-place heads on board stuffing equipment to eliminate ESD damage to chips.
- Ionizing the area under an inspection microscope to keep particles from being attracted to products during assembly or inspection processes.
- Ionizing the area around test sockets on IC test equipment, as well as on the chip handling feeder mechanisms.
The ionONE Model S and Model SA are immediately available for order from your local Simco-Ion product distributor.
