Stevenage Circuits Approves Use of Electra Polymers Direct Image Soldermask


Reading time ( words)

Stevenage Circuits have selected Electra Polymers EMP110 direct image spray soldermask for use on the AHK double-sided solder mask spray system in conjunction with their Limata, Orbotech Nuvogo and Orbotech Paragon direct imaging systems. The soldermask is designed specifically for use with DI equipment and optimised for high throughput and reliability. 

“Stevenage Circuits and Electra Polymers have mutually benefited from a long-standing relationship where innovative products have regularly been on offer at sustainable prices," said Technical Director Tim Gee. "The EMP110 DI material has proven to be a very capable alternative to our previously incumbent solder-mask, producing straight solder-mask sidewalls, benefits from reduced energy requirements for polymerisation (using both multiple wavelength UV and IR laser energy) whilst enabling solder-mask feature sizes of sub 50um to be reliably reproduced to meet with our current customer demands. In addition to the product range and capability on offer by Electra Polymers, service and support remains key to the continued success of Stevenage Circuits. Electra Polymers provided excellent cooperation during the EMP110 DI product integration process; we offer our thanks and look forward to the continuation of our relationship in to the future.” 

Ashley Steers, sales manager for Electra in Europe, commented, “The Electra EMP110 DI soldermask on the AHK spray system looks cosmetically great and to couple this with the DI systems Stevenage Circuits have invested in means the soldermask capabilities and quality are now second to none. Having a soldermask that has the versatility and reliability to run on 3 very different direct imaging machines is a real selling point.  I will be looking forward to strengthening our partnership with Stevenage Circuits and will enjoy working with Stevenage on new projects in the future.”

ICT Autumn Seminar Review: Live in 2021!

12/07/2021 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
Faced with the choice between a real or virtual event, Bill Wilkie took a calculated risk. It has been many long months since members of the Institute of Circuit Technology had gathered together under one roof, but a fair-sized bunch of industry stalwarts braved the weather and the threat of COVID, descended on the Manor Hotel in Meriden, UK, on Nov. 30, and applauded Bill’s decision to go live. They were not disappointed; the program was superb, the atmosphere upbeat, and the networking opportunity priceless.

Benchmarking Your Process Engineering

04/29/2021 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
Mark Thompson has been in bare board fabrication for over 30 years. He is now laying out printed circuit boards at Monsoon Solutions, a high-tech design bureau near Seattle, Washington. With Mark’s extensive hands-on knowledge of PCB manufacturing, he brings a unique perspective to PCB design. In this discussion with the I-Connect007 editorial team, Mark shares what’s important from a process engineer’s point of view, and how to stay on top of evaluating and benchmarking your manufacturing process, along with insights from his new role as a designer.

EIPC Technical Snapshot: 5G and Loss Minimisation

03/26/2021 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
Bringing a specialised technical area into sharp focus, this month’s topic was “5G and the understanding of loss minimisation at the PCB level,” with papers on dielectric material, copper foil, and modelling solutions. The webinar was moderated by EIPC board member Paul Waldner managing director of Multiline International Europa, who admitted that he had managed to get a haircut especially for the occasion!
