Speedline Launches Space-Saving MPM® Momentum® BTB (Back to Back) Printers for Dual Lane Configuration

Press release date: Apr 29, 2014

Franklin, Massachusetts, USA – SMT electronics assemblers can nearly double their stencil printing throughput without doubling their machine footprint with the new MPM Momentum BTB (Back to Back) printer.

The MPM Momentum BTB is a space-saving 200mm shorter than the standard Momentum with an overall length of 2.8m for the two machines. Configured for Back-to-Back (BTB) processing, e.g., two individual printers positioned back to back in a manufacturing line, it enables dual lane processing with the combined output of two machines, conserving floor space and creating a shorter manufacturing line length, but without sacrificing volume or yields. Momentum BTB is designed with all-front access to the entire electrical system, solvent reservoirs, etc. so that no extra space is required for accessibility between the machines in a BTB setup.

BTB configuration offers ultimate flexibility, matching printer strategy to dual lane strategy with MPM Momentum platform world-class performance. For example, a Dual Lane line instead of a traditional double-sided reflow line can greatly reduce capital requirements. Dual Lane processing can deliver much higher throughput per square foot than single-lane configurations, and has the flexibility to print multiple products in a single SMT line, e.g., top and bottom side, same side, or mother/daughter boards.

The MPM Momentum BTB brings Momentum performance to BTB processing. Wet Print accuracy is 20µm@6σ, Cpk ≥ 2, with 6σ Capability designed in and independently verified. MPM Momentum printers are fast, precise, and highly reliable, with performance unmatched by any other printer in its class. MPM Momentum BTB printers are offered in two different throughput configurations for optimum flexibility in line balancing.
