UV Exposure Box

Kinsten UV exposure box

The Kinsten UV Exposure Box has a maximum exposure area 230 x 380mm and can be used for single sided, or double sided PCB's.

It includes digital timer & vacuum table.

Three (3) FL-15 tubes top and bottom, ensure high intensity ultra-violet radiation for rapid exposure time. For applications that require more intense UV, Kinsten now offer the KVB30DQ with four (4) lamps per side for 220V regions and KVB30DT with five (5) lamps per side for 110V regions. Due to the size of the ballasts, 240V regions do not yet have a high intensity model.

The dominant UV wavelength is 350~400nm and the KVB-30D, while designed for use with Kinsten presensitised PCB, is often suitable for other applications that require transfering an image to a UV sensitive surface. They have been used in other applications including label making and rubber stamp production, although please check suitability first.

Please ensure you order the correct model for your mains voltage. Broadly, 110V is for North America and some areas of Asia, 220V is for Europe and some areas of Asia, 240V is for Australia & New Zealand. However, your area may have a different mains voltage, so please check before ordering.

Alternate UV Exposure Method

Alternate UV exposure method

Not everybody has the need for a full double sided light box. If you have a smaller PCB requirement this may suit you. We have located an alternate UV source, with our testing showing excellent results.

After trying several different models, this gave the best results. It has a 120 second timer, most importantly it has a slide out base (many models don't) and the UV is the correct frequency and good intensity. It is suitable up to a maximum of 150×150mm exposure area.

To use, slide out the removable section of the base, then lay the presensitised PCB on a flat surface (presensitised layer up), then layer the artwork, and a thin sheet of clear acrylic (not supplied) to press them together. Place the UV box over the area to be exposed and start the timing sequence. If the 120 second exposure is incorrect for your application, it can be manually timed.

Please ensure you select the correct model for your mains voltage. 110V is suitable for 110-120Vac (North America & some of Asia), and 220V is suitable for 220-240Vac (Australia, New Zealand & Europe). The plug supplied may not be suitable for local sockets and can be used with a travel adapter or replaced with a local plug by appropriately qualified personnel.

Etching Tank

Kinsten etch tank

Kinsten etch tanks are suitable for etching single and double sided PCBs with most etchants. The thin, vertical standing, design uses minimal etchant. The tanks have graduations for easy measurement.

The Kinsten ET20 tank can etch a maximum PCB size of 23×30cm without heater, or 20×30cm with heater. Use with 2000cc minimum, 2300cc maximum liquid.

The optional heater will help maintain optimal etching temperature.

The optional air pump bubbles air through the etchant liquid for efficient etching. The pump must be mounted higher than the liquid level to prevent reverse siphoning when the pump is switched off.

Etch tanks include three clips to suspend the PCB in the liquid etchant, and a thermometer to monitor liquid temperature.

An ET etch tank includes the etching tank with 3×clips & a thermometer. A heater & air pump is required to make an Etch Tank Kit.

Please ensure you order the correct model for your mains voltage. Broadly, 110V is for North America and some areas of Asia, 220V is for Europe and some areas of Asia, 240V is for Australia & New Zealand. However, your area may have a different mains voltage, so please check before ordering.

PCB Cutting Tool

Kinsten PCB cutting tool

The Kinsten PCB cutting tool is an easy and accurate method of cutting PCB's.

While hacksawing and 'score and snap' can be used, Kinsten PCB shears allows a straight cut up to 300mm in a single operation and is the recommended method to cut both paper phenolic and fibreglass PCBs.
