From booth 409 at the upcoming IPC Midwest event in Schaumburg, Illinois, DEK will again show customers and visitors why partnering with the mass imaging leader can improve productivity and positively impact the bottom line. With a suite of tools designed to optimize printer performance and provide extremely low cost of ownership, DEK continues to deliver on its 'Expect More' promise.
On display at the event will be DEK's Horizon 01i printer platform. Engineered to meet diverse assembly challenges - from high mix to high-volume including 0201 and CSP packages - Horizon 01i is the optimum high-speed solution. With Cpk 2.0 @ 25µm and a 10 second cycle time, the Horizon 01i effectively meets the high throughput, high accuracy requirements of today's advanced electronics manufacturers.
When equipped with DEK's portfolio of productivity tools, the Horizon 01i becomes even more powerful. Controlled through the simple, touch-screen Instinctiv(TM) user interface, operators have a complete view of the Horizon 01i's operational performance, consumables replenishment requirements as well as machine alerts, on-board help, set-up guidance and error recovery assistance. With these critical elements literally at the operator's fingertips, machine control is simplified and productivity is maximized.
Speed, throughput and performance are further enhanced with the addition of DEK's breakthrough HawkEye(TM) post-print verification system and revolutionary Cyclone(TM) understencil cleaning technology. Designed to eliminate the costly inspection time associated with traditional 2-D systems, DEK's HawkEye print verification technology effectively delivers 100% post-print verification without adversely affecting cycle time. The system can be set to verify 100% of deposits on the board or only certain areas of the board, giving the user the ability to adjust total verification cycle time to maximize system value within the line beat rate. Available in two versions to provide manufacturing flexibility, HawkEye 400 verifies deposits at a rate of 400mm2 per second and HawkEye 1200 operates at a rate of 1200mm2 per second, delivering unprecedented levels of verification speed.
Pushing beyond the limits of current understencil cleaning technology, DEK's Cyclone system offers throughput improvements and understencil cleaning speeds heretofore unavailable. Traditional understencil cleaning systems can be a throughput drain, but the innovative design of Cyclone cuts cleaning time in half, reduces paper changeover to mere seconds and provides a more thorough clean. Cyclone's five-stage head increases the active cleaning area on each stroke, delivering a faster clean that uses less paper than conventional understencil cleaners. A single wet oscillating stroke simultaneously clears apertures and the powerful return vacuum stroke removes any remaining residues. Understencil cleaning can now be achieved in just two sweeps and easy cassette-based paper changeover can be carried out in less than 20 seconds.
All of these productivity-enhancing tools in addition to DEK's award-winning VectorGuard frameless stencil technology will be on display throughout the IPC Midwest event. Delegates are invited to visit DEK in booth 409 from September 26 - 28 at the Renaissance Schaumburg Hotel and Convention Center.
