MorTech Drastically Reduces Cycle Time with New Soldermask Coating System

Reading time ( words)

MorTech, a leading provider of cost saving, technology based equipment and supplies to the PCB Industry, is now offering the EcoSpray and Fastach Soldermask Coating System (manufactured by Pluritec) which guarantees to drastically reduce the cycle time.

Current cycle time for soldermask coating of small lot jobs--including set-up, coating, oven tack dry and cooling before imaging--typically runs two or more hours. With MorTech’s EcoSpray and Fastach system, this process is reduced to 20 to 30 minutes. EcoSpray coats both sides of the panel in 2 minutes then automatically feeds the FasTach thermal dryer to complete the tack dry cycle in approximately 15 mins.  With EcoSpray’s four spray guns, four different materials can be coated and ready for imaging in less than 25 minutes.

The EcoSpray and Fastach system utilizes no set-ups, has no material waste and can be operated at low labor cost of 25 minutes with minimal operator skills while current processes require 3-4 hours of skilled labor cost and wasted materials with set-up and tear down.

With the EcoSpray and Fastach System, soldermask coating becomes a simplified process, allowing any user to perform multiple jobs with multiple color requirements and little downtime. In just 20-30 minutes, one job is done and moved on to the imaging department, allowing the next job (in different color) to be started and finished in an additional 15 minutes. This process can easily be repeated again and again for maximum efficiency, reducing current production time by 75%.

The EcoSpray and Fastach Soldermask Coating System is now on display at Mortech’s Anaheim-based Distribution Center. Contact Mortech now at 916-473-2140 or to schedule a demo and see how you can reduce your cycle time from 2-3 hours to 20 minutes.

Time, Space, Structure, and Model Analysis of CCL Price Increase

04/19/2021 | Hu Yang, Zhongtai Securities Research Center
According to the CCL Association, copper foil accounts for the largest proportion of raw materials (traditional CCL uses epoxy resin, glass fiber cloth and copper as raw materials). Copper foil in thin plate accounts for about 30% of the overall cost; in thick plate copper accounts for 50%. In CCL production, using Shengyi Technology and Chaohua Technology as examples, the cost of raw materials accounts for about 88% of the total cost, with labor accounting for about 4%. Other costs such as equipment depreciation account for about 8%.

Happy’s DIY Solution to Chemical Control

12/09/2020 | Happy Holden, I-Connect007
I confess. I am a control nerd and highly analytical. My second degree is in EE control theory, and I see the world in terms of feedback loops and black boxes. Early in my career, I was volunteered for the technical programs for the California Circuits Association (CCA), which was created by my mentor Clyde Coombs. In discussions with fellow process engineers, it was clear that the chemical process controls that HP could afford and allow me to put in place were not able to be duplicated by much smaller PWB shops.

8 Measures for Sales and Operations Planning in Turbulent Times, Part 2

07/28/2020 | Fane Friberg, CEPHAS
In this series, CEPHAS principal Fane Friberg highlights the interdependent elements of an effective S&OP process for leaders of supply chain management. While some companies tend to fall back on the status quo, Freiberg highlights why it’s critical to actually increase the frequency of the S&OP rather than decrease the operations. His first focus was to stay committed to the process. Today, he discusses strategic imperatives.
