Meyer Burger Receives Order for Multiple Solder Resist Printing Tools

Reading time ( words)

Meyer Burger (Netherlands) has received an order for multiple JETx SMP inkjet production printers for the application of solder mask from a major European PCB manufacturer. The order represents a strong signal from the PCB market that it is ready to adopt inkjet printing of solder mask and its many benefits as compared to existing screen print and photo imaging processes. Furthermore it demonstrates the market’s recognition of Meyer Burger’s leading position with its PiXDRO inkjet technology and printing expertise. 

Direct printing of solder resist has a great number of advantages. It omits coating, exposure and development processes, saving cost and improving yield. It also helps to reduce material consumption and waste streams. However, solder mask printing requires a next level of process and equipment engineering when compared to legend printing. It requires full size, multi-head and high accuracy printing equipment and process development in close collaboration with leading solder mask ink vendors. Because of these attributes, combined with its long standing experience in functional inkjet process development and equipment engineering, Meyer Burger has secured these first orders in solder resist printing.

CES 2018: Disruptive Technologies and Fun PC Stuff

01/24/2018 | Dan Feinberg, FeinLine Associates, Inc.
Two disruptive technologies that we have been covering for the last few years are 3D printing—especially as it pertains to PCB fab—and autonomous driving. 3D printing has been around for a few years, but it seems like 3D printers were introduced to CES very recently. This year there were almost 50 exhibitors showing their latest offerings. Most of them were in the LVCC in the north hall at the 3D Printing Marketplace.
