Multilayer Technology Invests in Orbotech Sprint 120 Inkjet Printer


Reading time ( words)

Multilayer Technology (MLT), located in Irving, Texas has added new Orbotech Sprint™ 120 Inkjet Printer to its growing list of equipment upgrades. This Orbotech is the current state-of-the-art in the area of high-viscosity ink jet printing. Marvin Potter, operations manager, stated, “This recent addition will make the task of individual serialization on military products a much simpler operation.”

“Multilayer had looked at a number of ways to accomplish this critical task as the majority of our current business is in the area of QTA with lead times less than five days. This task of individual serialization was very cumbersome and time consuming. The ink jet process proved to be the best process and allowed us to keep with the same materials utilized to make the other marking’s on the circuit board as well," Potter added.

“We have utilized a number of inkjet printing systems in the past and this is the first system that allows for printing of high viscosity inks and also include an inline nozzle cleaning system to ensure the product will always be ready for use no matter the level in inactivity," said President Viny Mulani.

“This is the first system I have seen that allows us to go down to a .5mm feature and still have the nomenclature legible. With the current densification of products we are seeing it has become almost impossible to continue to utilize the conventional screen print or UV exposure process,” noted QA Director Rick Conden.

In the inkjet process, users only utilize the amount of ink that is needed, so there is a reduction in the amount of ink used and the loading in the developer is no longer an issue. Waste treatment has also benefited as the amount of Zinc in the waste water stream has been drastically reduced.

I recently had the opportunity to chat with the new director of sales and marketing at Eagle Electronics, Andy D’Agostino. I’ve visited Eagle before; they are endlessly busy, with good things going on, so I was happy when I learned that Brett McCoy was now COO and another fellow had taken over some of the sales and marketing activities. Andy comes with a wealth of experience and seems to have settled in nicely.
