Mega ION® Automated Batch Cleaning System Wins Mexico Technology Award

Austin American Technology (AAT) is pleased to announce that it received a 2020 Mexico Technology Award in the category of Cleaning Equipment for its Mega ION® Automated Batch Cleaning System. The award was announced during a Virtual Awards Ceremony on Monday, October 26, 2020. 

 Todd Rountree, President & COO of AAT commented: “This award comes after just receiving the 2020 GLOBAL Technology Award for the Mega ION. It is a true testament to the system to be selected by two major industry award programs back-to-back. We are proud to offer this leading batch cleaner to our customers.” 

AAT’s Mega ION® cleaning system is designed for solvent based, high reliability applications requiring product cleanliness verification (IPC ROSE Testing). It is used for final clean prior to conformal coat, encapsulation or other sealing operations used to protect electronic modules. 

The Mega ION® is compatible with multiple solvents including but not limited to DI water, water alcohol mixtures, pure alcohol, evaporative hydrocarbons (like cyclohexane) commercial solvent blends not requiring a water rinse.

The MEGA ION® system operates in a closed-loop environment with wash bath life maintained through the use of an integrated ionic exchange filter system. This provides a rapid economic payback based upon solvent and solvent disposal savings combined with less maintenance downtime and high production uptime.

The Mexico Technology Awards acknowledge the latest innovations available in Mexico produced by OEM manufacturing equipment and materials suppliers during the last 12 months. For more information, visit
