August 2017 –Albany Oregon – MEI Wet Process Systems and Services just completed installation of a premium remanufactured freestanding spray solvent tool at an Industrial Inkjet Print head manufacturer in California to add production capacity

The SST was remanufactured to MEI’s Premium remanufactured specs:

During the remanufacturing process the outdated Semitool electronics in this tool built in late 1980’s is upgraded to use MEI’s software IDX Flexware. Spray Tool, Semitool

HMI and I/O Controller Upgrade includes:

  • The outdated proprietary I/O Controller and GUI is replaced with a highly robust PLC and the reliable IDX Flexware Process Control Software that is installed on more than 400 wet processing machines worldwide
  • Data logging
  • SECS/GEM Host Capabilities
  • Programmable password secured access-levels
  • USB-interface for data-backup
  • Replaces OEM display with a new and more intuitive color touchscreen
  • Robust, production-ready Windows®-based PC
  • Direct Drive Motor and Control with Encoder for Tachometer
  • Capacitive Level Sensors
  • New Analog Flowmeters
  • Digital Exhaust Sensors
  • New Stainless Rotor
  • New fire suppression system


The Chambers and Tanks are reconditioned, Electro-polished and rebuilt with new seals and orings. The Fluid flow path is replaced with new valve manifolds, filter housings, flare tek fittings, nozzles and PFA tubing.

Our Goal is to provide our customers with a tool that will be easy to support. The SST’s are rebuilt with many of the components that can be bought off the shelf from worldwide distributors. (No more relying on single source for spare parts)

MEI’s remanufacturing process adds another 20 years of life to the tool with upgrading the critical components to modern technology that can be supported and gives the customer more capabilities to monitor and control the process performance of their tool
