SWAM-Blaster® Model CCR-CWC-MV2L
ESD-Safe Conformal Coating Removal Work Cell

Crystal Mark's new CCR-CWC-MV2L Conformal Coating Removal Work Cell, incorporates the MV-2L Micro Abrasive Blaster, Ionized Ergonomic Work Chamber, Point Ionizer at Nozzle and Dust Collector. The unit features all-in-one design, and is mounted on casters for easy installation, mobility and Work Cell re-configuration. It is specifically designed to selectively remove conformal coatings, whether from a pinpoint area to an entire circuit card assembly.

Exceptional ESD safety is built into the unit. When conformal coated components are sensitive to Electro-Static Discharge (ESD), the Point Ionizer effectively reduces ESD from reaching levels that could potentially cause damage to the component during the removal process. The Point Ionizer combines handpiece, abrasive nozzle and ionization source into one, providing a balanced flow of positive and negative ions at the exit point of the nozzle tip. A roomy Ionized Ergonomic Work Chamber with Ionizing Bars and anti-static Iris Ports provides additional ESD protection, and also includes Dual Fluorescent Lamps, grounded Metal Interior Work Surface, Tempered Glass Viewing Window and Angled Arm Holes. For optimal ESD-safety, Carbo Blast™ abrasive powder (see below) is highly recommended.

 
  • Incorporates SWAM-Blaster® Model MV-2L Micro-Abrasive Blaster with Tilt Powder Tank design, independently adjustable powder flow control and air pressure regulation
  • The ultimate in ESD protection with Ionized Ergonomic Work Chamber with Ionizer Bars and Anti-Static Iris Ports, Point Ionizer at the Nozzle, and grounded metal work surface
  • Safely and easily removes epoxy, urethane, silicone, acrylic and parylene conformal coatings as well as blends, without causing mechanical/ESD damage
  • Dual white and UV fluorescent bulbs for easy conformal coating identification
  • All-in-one design incorporates rolling cart with heavy duty casters for easy movement to anywhere needed
  • High volume Dust Collector with built-in Silencer evacuates spent media from within work chamber and collects it into lift-out pan for easy disposal; employs re-useable, practically maintenance-free cotton sateen filter

NEW  SWAM-Blaster® Model CCR-NP16X16
Automated  Conformal Coating Removal Nozzle Positioning System

First Computer-Controlled System for Full Board Conformal Coating Removal!

Crystal Mark is pleased to introduce the CCR-NP16X16 Automated Conformal Coating Removal System. Originally developed for Tobyhanna Army Depot and fielded in late 2009, the CCR-NP16X16 is the first automated micro-abrasive blast system designed specifically for removing/stripping conformal coatings from an entire printed circuit board surface, up to 16” x 16”. It will also handle spot area removals when used with the Point Ionizer Handpiece for manual touch-up.


Touch Screen provides for simple operation & programming
 

The system is computer controlled with a programmable touch screen user interface. The user simply enters the area to be blasted (up to 16”x16”), number of passes and from which side to make the passes. The nozzle is mounted at 60 degrees in relation to the board. The board is placed on a rotary table rotating in 90 degree increments to insure full board coverage. The system can be used in either “Sandblast Automatic” mode or “Sandblast Manual” mode for doing touch up manually.

  • Easily and safely removes parylene, epoxy, urethane, silicone, acrylic & blended conformal coatings in 'Auto' or 'Manual' modes
  • Incorporates SWAM-Blaster® Model LV-1 Micro-Abrasive Blaster on a swing-out platform; LV-1 features Tilt Powder Tank design, independently adjustable powder flow control and air pressure regulation
  • Completely ESD-Safe with roomy Ergonomic Work Chamber with Ionizer Bars and Anti-Static Iris Ports, Point Ionizers at each Nozzle, and grounded metal work surface
  • Tempered glass viewing window
  • Includes Point Ionizer Handpiece for manual touch-up
  • Brightly lit with dual white and UV fluorescent bulbs for easy conformal coating identification
  • Microscope Mount Pivot Assembly (microscope optional)
  • Oval angled arm holes for operator comfort
  • Built-in high volume Dust Collector, Silencer and Air Dryer
  • Uses heavy duty, lockable swivel castors/leveling feet for easy movement to anywhere needed
  • Touch Screen operation/programming; stores 99 programs
  • Requires only a single power and single air drop

Environmentally Friendly Carbo Blast™  Abrasive Powder for ESD-Sensitive PCB's

There are several types of abrasive powder media available for conformal coating removal including environmentally friendly Carbo Blast™, recommended for ESD-sensitive pc boards & components. Carbo Blast™ is also the least aggressive abrasive media and successfully removes all conformal coatings including Parylenes, Silicones, Urethanes, Epoxies, Acrylics and their blends. Excellent for circuit card assemblies, it does not cause mechanical damage to the butter coat of the board. While Carbo Blast excels for printed circuit board repair tasks, Crystal Mark Inc offers a wide variety of powders including aluminum oxide, glass beads, crushed glass, dolomite, silicon carbide and soda bicarbonate for different applications.
