ASS Luippold on Productronica 2019
For more than 18 years, inkjet technology has been in constant discussion alongside legend printing for resist or soldermask applications in PCB production. At this year’s productronica (world-leading trade fair for electronics manufacturing), a breakthrough in the solder mask sector in life was pursued at the booth of ASS Luippold together with the technology leader, the Schwetzinger company Notion Systems.
The change in technology creates enormous savings opportunities and at the same time very high flexibility. The main advantages of this digital technology are fully effective:
- Elimination of cost-intensive production steps as intermediate drying before exposure, film preparation, exposure, development
- reduction of ink consumption, process chemicals, energy costs and maintenance costs
- Drastic reduction of space and labour requirements
- With maximum reproducibility, satellite formation, SM in holes or on pads are avoided with all current structures
As a long-standing partner of the PCB industry in the field of process automation, ASS Luippold has now taken over the sales and consulting of the n.jet inkjet system from The company Notion Systems from Schwetzingen near Heidelberg, the technology leader in this area, for Europe. A number of systems, some of them fully automated, have already been delivered to well-known PCB manufacturers.
