PNC Inc. Invests in Limata’s X100 Laser Direct Imager


Reading time ( words)

PNC Inc. recently purchased a LIMTA X1000 Laser Direct Imager from Limata, GmbH. With this purchase, all inner layers, outer layers, solder-mask and silkscreen are 100% digitally imaged, using two LDI systems.

In keeping with their commitment to continuous improvement, “This latest high precision technology is the first step of upgrading our LPI and screening departments in the coming weeks.” Said President Sam Sangani, “PNC INC chooses a LIMATA X1000 system solution (powered by LUVIR®) for their solder mask/silk screen process at its US Nutley, NJ site.”

Sangani continued, “LIMATA´s X1000 system solution powered by LUVIR technology® fully convinced our engineering team during the evaluation and production phase. We evaluated all available solutions for the solder mask and silk screen processes and we determined that LIMATA is by far, the most economical and the fastest machine with unmatched imaging quality in our industry. The capacity, flexibility and cost/performance ratio of the X1000 LUVIR DI system is outstanding in the market and offers PNC the ability to produce PCBs fully digital at significantly higher throughput levels by meeting all state-of-the art quality requirements for solder mask/Silk Screen imaging.” He added, “We recognize there is no cap on quality so pursuing it is an ongoing endeavor.”

The LIMATA X1000 series is a universal and cost-efficient Laser Direct Imaging (LDI) system platform designed for the flexible use in high-mix/ low-volume PCB manufacturing environments during the dry-film patterning or solder mask imaging process.

The new X1000 LDI system platform ensures maximum efficiency and throughput – i.e. from the use of LIMATA’s proprietary and in-house developed LUVIR (UV/IR) technology for solder mask imaging – at lowest possible TCO’s (Total Cost of Ownership) over the equipment life-cycle. Ideal for PCB manufacturers (or special PCB divisions of larger PCB makers) with high-mix/low-volume production mixes and imaging capacity/output requirements up to 500 panels per day (HDI, standard-rigid, flex) in a multi-shift operational mode.
