U.S. Circuit Installs Second Maskless Direct Digital Imaging Machine

Reading time ( words)

U.S. Circuit, a printed circuit board manufacturer based in Escondido, California, has installed a second Maskless direct digital imaging machine. The MLI-5800 is the newest and most advanced digital direct imaging machine from Maskless Technology and utilized their UV LED light source.

“True to our history and reputation, we continue to build on our capabilities and increase our quality metrics in order to create the very highest value for our customers," explained Mike Fariba, president of U.S. Circuit. "Adding the MLI-5800 to our production floor will help us to continue to exceed our customer’s expectations when it comes to technology, quality and delivery.”

This machine was installed and commissioned by Technica’s new DI equipment service team.  “We were impressed with the level of knowledge and support we received from Technica during installation, set-up and training.  Any concerns we may have had related to the change in responsibility from Maskless to Technica regarding service and support were lifted after observing how effectively they performed during--and even after--the installation,” Fariba added.

“We are very pleased to have been given the opportunity to place the second DI machine into U.S. Circuit,” said Frank Medina, president of Technica USA.  U.S. Circuit was one of the earliest adopters of the MLI technology when they purchased their first DI tool over 4 years ago. “I think this says a lot about U.S. Circuit’s commitment to deliver quality PCBs to their customers. Purchasing the second Maskless/CBT DI system also speaks loudly about the performance and reliability that this technology delivers to our current and future customers.”

With the addition of the second Maskless direct digital imaging machine, U.S. Circuit, Inc. now has the increased capacity to image all inner layer, outer layer and, more importantly, solder mask panels with superior dimensional accuracy utilizing the outer layer image produced by the Maskless direct digital imaging machine.

Solder Mask Curing: UV Bump Overview

08/19/2019 | Nikolaus Schubkegel
Ultraviolet (UV) bump, also called UV cure, is a processing step in which the solder mask pattern is irradiated with ultraviolet and infrared light. This step is performed with special equipment that is built as a continuous flow system, which consists of a conveyor belt and tubular UV lamps mounted above and below the belt. Read on to find out more about this process.

A Guide to High-reliability PCBs from Design to Specification

07/24/2019 | Jeff Beauchamp, NCAB Group
Creating reliable PCBs is an outcome of considering all aspects that can affect reliability as early as possible in the design process. The further down the design process, the more expensive and risky it can be to fix. As they say, everything starts with the design. Because a good board design improves the reliability of the end product and lessens the risk of failure.
