Würth Elektronik CBT, one of the leading PCB manufacturers in Europe, and Taiyo America are excited to announce that inkjet solder mask is in production.
IJSR-4000 JM03G is an inkjet solder mask product developed by the chemists and engineers of Taiyo Ink in Japan. The product is designed to meet all industry standards for high performance solder mask in the automotive, aerospace, defense, communications, medical and industrial market segments.
"We have been cooperating for over four years in the development of an inkjet process solution and the time and effort spent by both companies has finally paid off. We are pleased to have Würth Elektronik CBT as our first worldwide production customer for the IJSR-4000 JM03G,” stated Zach Maekawa, president of Taiyo America.
Dirk Grether, a project manager at Würth Elektronik CBT, adds with enthusiasm: "We are always eager to continuously improve our printed circuit boards, always striving for products and solution optimization which significantly benefits our customers. Together with Taiyo America, we pioneered a new successful inkjet process—thanks to IJSR-4000 JM03G. As one of the first producers, we were able to apply a functional 3D-surface designed PCB according to the customer’s requirements. Also, beyond precision and functionality advantages, we offer our customers improvements in PCB protection—achieved by the gentle application of the functional surface, as well as by a reduction in the amount and type of chemicals used. "
