During the most recent Productronica show held in Munich, Germany, Schmoll Maschinen GmbH introduced the new Micromirror Digital Imaging System (MDI), a digital direct imaging system using Digital Micromirror Device (DMD) technology. This new technology transfers UV light images to the circuit board substrate using high resolution micromirror chips.
As a new technology, Schmoll brings to the industry a robust granite platform system ensuring image stability suitable for photoresist inner layer/outer layer and solder mask applications. Three systems are available including a single table system, a double table system for faster throughput and larger table surface for sizable panels. The system can be configured for one to as many as six heads for higher throughput.
The MDI-ST and the MDI-DT are assembled on a stable granite platform with a precision table based on Schmoll’s extensive experience in both mechanical and laser drilling systems. The MDI Light Engine provides 2 million individually adjustable micromirrors for fine line imaging resolution. In addtion, the compact design and flexibility of these systems allow for economical use of floor space.
As the largest manufacturer of productive drilling and routing systems in the world, Schmoll Maschinen GmbH offers an economical approach with their extensive system and imaging technology to the PCB industry.
