AQUBE® XH9
Super large high end system for assembled PCBs, hybrids, misprints

The kolb AQUBE® series offer next-generation cleaning systems - even more efficient, even more compact, easy to handle and maintain, pre-equipped for extended water management and ready for the smart factory (SF ready certified).

AQUBE® XH9 is a fully automatic XXL high volume new generation PCB ultra-fine cleaning system with by far the largest process chamber in a PCB cleaning batch system worldwide and thus with uncontested capacity per time (860 equals 19m² / 204.5 ft² eurocards) in one cleaning cycle (corresponding to a relative cleaning time of 6.5 seconds per card) than any common inline system.

AQUBE® XH9 is a German engineered and manufactured machine primarily for the process safe fine cleaning of assembled PCBs, hybrids (HDIs, SiPs) and misprints from reflow flux residues, resin, copper, oxide and soldering support substances.

The parallel working three-tank, three-circuit configuration with ClosedLoop water reprocessing ensures short cycle times as well as low running cost leading to an uncontested low total cost of ownership value.

AQUBE® XH9 systems, equipped with loading and unloading automats can be coupled to highly efficient super mass plants.
