Meyer Burger and ADEON Technologies have entered an agreement in which Adeon will represent Meyer Burger's inkjet soldermask technology "PiXDRO JETx" systems into the European PCB manufacturing industry. Meyer Burger has successfully developed the technology over the last 7 years, starting in 2012.
The PiXDRO JETx fits perfectly to the portfolio of Adeon and the two companies have already shared a lot of information and knowledge. Meyer Burger has already 2 successful installations in the European PCB market and with the Productronica coming up from November 12-15 - 2019, both companies are excited about the opportunity to expand the Meyer Burger footprint immediately. In the start-up phase of the relationship, Adeon will take care of the commercial entry of the PiXDRO JETx system, which is to be expanded into a cooperation to include service and support in the future.
Adeon will be exhibiting a PiXDRO JETx system at its booth during Productronica. Meyer Burger specialists will be happy to show the technology and welcomes everyone to visit Adeon and Meyer Burger in Hall B3, Stand 425.

Editor Pete Starkey and Tibbals discuss Electra Polymers’ move into the inkjet soldermask market, and some of the challenges and benefits of this technology. Tibbals explains how inkjet soldermask can enable end-users to improve reliability of the final product, for instance, because this additive process allows manufacturers to control the thickness of soldermask around vias and BGAs and eliminating trapped chemistry in undercut areas.

Does inkjet solder mask have the potential for volume production? Mariana Van Dam, global sales manager for PCB imaging solutions, and Dr. Frank Louwet, business unit manager for advanced coatings and chemicals, discuss Agfa's latest developments, plus some novel applications for inkjet etch and plating resists.
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.
