Austin American Technology(AAT) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a collaborative relationship with Specialty Coating Systems (SCS). SCS Ionic Contamination Test Systems set the standard of quality for the industry. Designed for fast and accurate ionic contamination cleanliness testing, the systems provide a precise, repeatable and rapid method for determining cleanliness and deliver immediate process control results, eliminating the need for outside laboratory testing.

For manufacturers driven to deliver quality products, SCS Ionic Contamination Test Systems are the industry standard, delivering accuracy and performance in a range of configurations. Todd Rountree, President & COO at AAT commented, “Austin American Technology has always taken pride in our long history of being on the cutting edge of technology. We have been able to maintain this advantage by partnering with the best minds in the business for process, product and research support. The alliance with SCS increases AAT’s offerings to include the best ROSE testers on the market with the knowledge and expertise our customers have come accustomed to expect.”

As far as standards go, the SCS line of ionic contamination equipment meets those established for PCB fabrication and assembly. With more than 50 years of experience in manufacturing environments, SCS test systems include the Ionograph® and Omegameter lines, which continue to prove their value as the leading choice for electronics manufacturing customers.

The SCS Ionograph BT Series is available in small, medium or large sizes to accommodate customer board requirements. The systems offer the same convenience, accuracy and reliability as their predecessors, but have been modified to enhance safety and ease of maintenance.

Like its predecessors, the Ionograph SMD V offers reliable, accurate contamination testing right on the production floor. The system features optional heating capabilities and is completely controlled by SCS PowerView™ software.

SCS Ionographs are designed to meet the needs of any lab or manufacturer. The Ionograph SMD V and Ionograph BT Series determine the cleanliness of electronic components, assemblies with SMT devices and bare and assembled PCBs. Additionally, the series complies with ANSI/J-STD-001 and IPC-TM-650, and is specifically named in MIL-STD-2000A and MIL-P-28809A.

Headquartered in Indianapolis, Indiana, Specialty Coating Systems offers industry-leading liquid coating systems, including spray, spin and dip coating systems, thermal and UV cure systems and ionic contamination test systems. For more information, visit www.SCSequip.com.

About Austin American Technology

Austin American Technology is on the forefront of engineering and manufacturing high performance cleaning system for over 35 years, delivering solutions worldwide. AAT was founded in 1986, as a provider of SMT rework systems and process engineering testing services. In 1988, their focus shifted toward the high-end electronics cleaning segment with the introduction of the world’s first automated stencil cleaner. In 2000, Austin American Technology became a market leader in inline cleaning systems with the introduction of the award-winning HydroJet® series. Patented cleaning and drying technologies were incorporated into an energy and space-efficient format to set new standards for performance and low cost of ownership. Building on this success, AAT introduced the MicroJet® inline flip chip cleaner to provide high volume cleaning capability in a small footprint.  In 2013 AAT introduced the world’s smallest most efficient inline cleaner, the NanoJet®.
