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, easy maintenance and meets ISO 14644-1 Class 5 (Fed. Std. 209E Class 100). 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.About Simco-Ion
