The German manufacturer of printed circuit boards MicroCirtec has launched the qualification of a machine under production conditions with the company Altix from France. The German manufacturer of printed circuit boards MicroCirtec has launched the qualification of a machine under production conditions with the company Altix from France. This new machine presented at the Productronica 2011 ACURA LedLightTM uses technology LED to the double-sided exposure of printed circuit boards and sets new standards for Produktivititat, accuracy and energy saving. MicroCirtec once again underlines the strategic importance of the technology location Germany for the printed circuit board. It is possible to cover all stages of production with exposure processes in the HDI PCB manufacturing with same technology Universal LED-technology. If inner layers, outer layers or the solder stop mask exposure there is equal productivity such as the traditional 5 kW high pressure lamps. The bundled laser lamps create up to 4.5 frames per minute (internal process) or 3.5 sheets per minute (outer process). Credit: Greystones Group-2011. Because there are no lamps to replace, up to 80% savings on energy consumption will arise.
The head image resolution can be reduced up to 25 my. The high. Throughput of the machine is achieved not only thanks to the LED technology, but also through the use of a new pre-registration of printed circuit boards before the actual exposure process. Even if the exposure source LED is still in the qualification, MicroCirtec is already convinced of the mechanical design. Since the beginning of 2012, the PCB manufacturer used already a fully automatic exposure range in the area of solder-stop, its centerpiece an Altix imagesetter with 2 x 8kw light sources. This achieves a throughput 2.5 Panel per minute. Also the technically difficult controllable colors white and black (too low or too high Absorbtionsproblematik) can be processed with this easily. 50 my ties between solder-stop pads and SMDS are hereby. With this Investment wants to prove the PCB manufacturer, that high productivity and advanced technology you can get quality also for the lowest prices in Germany.
