First EIE Technology at Royal Circuits


Reading time ( words)

Royal Circuits Group has expanded its investment in process equipment from First EIE. Royal Circuits Group has acquired an EDI500 direct image system for its location in Southern California, and CP562 for inkjet nomenclature at the Hollister, California location. The First EIE inkjet and direct image machines provide a simple user interface and highly reliable platform while addressing advanced technology needs.

The CP562 inkjet equipment for nomenclature ink has proven itself as being a daily work horse with very minimum maintenance needed. Random nozzle clogging—a typical issues with inkjet technology—is a very seldom occurrence. The equipment features other advanced capabilities, such as data scaling and dynamic legend (date codes, D-codes, serial numbers, text), and has a maintenance-friendly design packaged into a very small foot print.

FirstEIE.EDI500-2.jpgBased on DMD technology, First EIE's direct image platform also features a high-powered UV light source, which provides a full spectral range from 365nm to 450nm—allowing full compatibility with almost all resists and solder masks. Features include full panel to local panel scaling, resolution down to 1mil lines and spaces, real time Z-axis focus adjustment and as usual with EIE equipment, a very maintenance friendly design. The EDI500 addresses panel sizes up to 24" x 27" with a very compact foot print while the EDI700 allows processing panels as large as 30" x 36". all4-PCB (North America) Inc. is proud to be representing this product line.

Preventing De-wetting Defects In Immersion Tin Soldering

01/04/2023 | Britta Schafsteller, Atotech
Immersion tin is well accepted as a high-reliability final finish in the industry. Due to its excellent corrosion resistance, it exhibits major market shares, particularly in the automotive industry. During the soldering process, an intermetallic compound (IMC) is formed between copper and tin. One remaining concern in the industry is the potential impact of the IMC on the solderability of the final finish. In this article, typical failure modes in soldering immersion tin are described and correlated to potential root causes for the defects.
