Tabletop Screen/Stencil Printer features semiautomatic operation.
December 22, 2011 -
Able to print on single- and double-sided PCBs, ceramics, and foils, programmable Fino can be placed on table to meet needs of smaller, flexible production. Features include touchscreen programming terminal, laser-guided vision alignment, and pneumatic fast-fixation for screen and stencil tension frames. All motions of squeegee and print table are motorized, promoting programmability and reproducibility. Also included, 2-color vision cameras enable secure fine-pitch printing.

Professional Printing in a Tabletop Format
Essemtec debuts Fino programmable precision printer
The new Fino screen/stencil printer from Essemtec offers professional print process control paired with the flexibility of a semiautomatic tabletop printer.
Compact, precise and exceptionally easy to use: These are the characteristics of Fino, the new printer from Essemtec. The programmable precision printer can be placed on a table, making it is ideally suited for smaller, flexible production. Optionally, the printer is available mounted on a robust steel stand.
The following features make Fino different than other table-top printers: A touch screen programming terminal, laser-guided vision alignment, and a pneumatic fast-fixation for screen and stencil tension frames. Furthermore, all motions of the squeegee and the print table are motorized and, therefore, are both programmable and reproducible. Because of these features, Fino's setup and changeover is much quicker than other machines and the print quality is better.
The two-color vision cameras enable secure fine-pitch printing. The cameras look through the stencil to the substrate and printing takes place directly after alignment control, eliminating additional motion.
Fino prints on single- and double-sided PCBs, ceramics and, foils - through the use of the vacuum table. A specialty of the Fino is its capability to provide borderless printing on substrates up to 450 x 500 mm. Screen and stencil tension frames up to 23" can be mounted.
