New SPR-45VA SMTrue(TM) Vision Assist Automated Stencil Printer Provides An Economical Solution for Reproducible Printing Results Down to 12 mil Pitch Components



APS Novastar, LLC, a global leader in the design, development and manufacture of OEM solutions for short to medium run SMT and PCB assembly is pleased to announce the availability of the SPR-45VA Automated Stencil Printer. With its SMTrue Vision Assist alignment system, new quick change double-sided nesting kit, and enhanced axial and theta alignment system, users will enjoy benefits usually relegated to much more expensive systems without compromise to precision and repeatability.

The APS Novastar SPR-45VA with its SMTrue Vision Assist alignment system provides SMT and PCB assemblers with the speed, ease-of-use and reproducibility they require for solder paste printing applications down to 12 mil pitch components. The SPR-45VA provides axial stencil to board registration with dual or single camera assist to allow for accurate printing of 0201s, ultra micro BGAs, CSPs, and 15 mil pitch QFPs with easy adjustment for board tolerance variation in X, Y and Theta. The SPR-45VA operates in a user-friendly environment addressing a wide variety of screen printing alignment mark registrations. Pneumatic control of pressure, speed and angle-of-attack dual squeegee system delivers consistent results for the most taxing production or prototyping printing applications.

"Development of the SPR-45VA SMTrue Vision Assist alignment system and quick change double-sided board nesting kit was in direct response to feedback from our existing and prospective customers. We fast tracked development in order to meet our customers' most demanding applications and at a price point mindful of the economic climate," stated John Wasyliw, Vice President, Engineering. "We will launch several new technologically advanced products over the coming months at a value respectful of customers' tight fiscal budgets."
