Airblast AFC presents the Airflex Sweeper Recovery System, a full-floor abrasive recovery system that automatically recovers abrasive material from the floor, and is made of modular corridors, each with a series of flexible rubber blades set at regular intervals. The blades rest against steel combs, allowing it to push or pull the abrasive material when the comb is behind the rubber. On the alternate stroke, the comb passes through the abrasive and the rubber blade passes over it. Benefits of Airflex system include little labor required, virtually silent working operation, relatively little energy consumption, long service life, no moving metal components and no compressed air consumption.

    Immersion tin and lead-free hot air solder leveling (HASL) coatings based on SnCu or SnAgCu alloys are widely used as surface finish materials for printed circuit boards (PCB). These coatings prevent the underlying copper from corrosion and preserve its solderability during lead-free assembly processes and for a long storage life of PCBs.
