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.

A Unique Norwegian Approach to Serving Customers

I met a lot of interesting people at productronica, with an assortment of different products on display. Such was my visit with Oyvind Tafjord, CEO of Visitech. His purpose at the show was to meet with his customers, so nothing unusual about that. But his customers also had booths (or stands, as they call them), which is an advantage for him, as he explains here.

AGFA: From Film to Inkjet Solder Mask

12/20/2017 | Patty Goldman, I-Connect007
The productronica show was indeed filled with new technology, and it was great to meet with people and learn about it. This is precisely how I met AGFA’s Frank Louwet, who filled me in on the Dipamat inkjet solder mask they have been developing. It seemed an odd choice to go from film to solder mask, but as Frank explained, it makes perfect sense.
