Alpha, part of the Mac Dermid Performance Solutions group of businesses, introduced tensoRED, its new master tensioning frame, designed to provide a higher and more even tension compared to Alpha Tetra Frame. Due to its innovative design, no air pressure on the frame is needed, resulting in reduced maintenance costs and improved reliability. Alpha tensoRED also delivers less paste smearing, reduced variation in volume deposits and improved positional alignment compared to Alpha Tetra Frames.
Alpha Precision Milled Stencils were also featured and have been designed to enable optimal control of the paste deposits when assembling boards containing a wide variety of component sizes. They allow great flexibility in the transition from one thickness to another and improved surface quality.
