Reading time ( words)

ORBOTECH LTD announced today that Eltek, a Nistec company and long-time Orbotech customer, has been successfully using the new Orbotech Diamond 8 Direct Imaging (DI) system for solder mask at its production facility in Petach Tikvah, Israel. Eltek specializes in the production of flex-rigid boards, complex rigids and sequential laminated Printed Circuit Boards. 

Orbotech Diamond 8, incorporating the unique SolderFast TechnologyTM, enhances Eltek’s high standard of production quality by exposing any conventional solder resist at high speed on even the most complex designs. The Orbotech Diamond 8 system will enable to efficiently manufacture the newest products thanks to its superior solder mask imaging accuracy and fast throughput. 

“Orbotech’s Diamond is a significant technological leap forward in PCB manufacturing,” stated Roberto Tulman, Deputy CEO and CTO at Eltek. “Solder mask imaging is one of the main challenges that PCB manufacturers face today. Orbotech has given us a way to overcome this challenge remarkably well with a robust system that runs smoothly and delivers consistent, high quality results.” 

“Eltek and Orbotech have a strong partnership going back many years”, said Mr. Hadar Himmelman, President of Orbotech West. “In fact, Eltek was the first customer to deploy our new Orbotech Diamond 8 DI system for solder mask. We are looking forward to continue supporting Eltek’s needs with best-inclass solutions.” 

About Orbotech Diamond 8

Orbotech Diamond 8 is an extremely fast, accurate solution for high-volume solder mask DI. Powered by Orbotech SolderFast Technology, Orbotech Diamond 8 is especially suited for designs with high complexity. Building on vast field-proven experience in patterning, the Orbotech Diamond 8 improves throughput, yield and productivity while decreasing total cost of ownership (TCO).  

Orbotech SolderFast Technology employs a controlled wide UV spectrum to ensure fast throughput and high quality on a variety of solder resists. Unique one-pass exposure enables uniform solder mask imaging over the entire panel.  Orbotech Diamond 8, with its sophisticated optical mechanism, including a patented light source with high energy illumination, enables high DOF (Depth-of-Focus) for consistent, precise imaging quality thus overcoming the most challenging surface topography variations as well as any distortion or abnormality. The system also offers advanced scaling modes for high precision registration, further improving throughput. Orbotech Diamond 8 delivers the most advanced image quality with no need to deploy an autofocus mechanism.
