Metal, mobile edged squeegees deliver repeatable results and are a solution to the problems of scooping and scavenging that traditional polyurethane squeegees create with larger stencil apertures.
Tecan blades are manufactured from a durable metal and include a reactive mobile edge to ensure good contact with the squeegee side of the stencil throughout the printing process. The mobile edge allows the blade to flex locally to accommodate irregular surfaces such as board warpage, proud vias, uneven silkscreen legends and thicker tracks, providing better deposit formation, increased process control and improved product quality.
Tecan blades out-perform traditional polyurethane blades, single thickness metal blades and coated blades and are suited to both single thickness and multi-level stencils (with either raised or recessed areas).
Highly-polished nickel squeegee blades are also available, offering improved compatibility with lead-free pastes, optimised aperture fill and paste-conditioning characteristics which extend print life.
These electroformed blades have been developed to address the rheology problems associated with less dense lead-free and no-clean pastes. These pastes have a tendency to cling to a conventional unpolished blade resulting in paste hang-up at the end of the print stroke, thereby reducing the paste bead on subsequent print strokes. The improved paste-roll characteristics aided by reduced surface tension also extends the printing life of the paste.
Handheld squeegee options are also available including holders and replacement blades:
