Today's High-Reliability Products Depend on DEK Technology; See the Latest Printing Advances at SMTA International 2014

From booths #140 and #234 at SMTA International (SMTAi) 2014, ASM Assembly Systems' (ASM) Printing Solutions Division will highlight its portfolio of DEK printing solutions, all designed to enable cost-effective production of today's high-reliability, high-value products.  Throughout the two-day event, ASM printing experts will conduct demonstrations of the latest DEK Horizon 03iX and Process Support Products, as well as participate in paper presentations within the conference.

"Modern automobile, medical and even high-value mobile applications leave no room for error when it comes to reliability," says Brian Smith, Americas General Manager, ASM Printing Solutions Division.  "Manufacturing these products to the highest standards ensures consumer safety, product longevity and cost-efficiency, which is why electronics assembly specialists consistently rely on ASM printing technologies and the knowledge of our team."

Configured with several advanced tools, the DEK Horizon 03iX on display at booth # 140 is the ideal platform for the requirements of high-reliability products that incorporate miniaturized devices. DEK technologies such as Cyclone high-speed understencil cleaning, Grid-Lok automatic board support, transfer efficiency powerhouse ProActiv, dynamic closed loop automatic alignment and cleaning frequency optimizer ProDEK and HawkEye real time print verification all combine to deliver an intelligent, high-speed, high-yield printing system for today's most demanding requirements.  In addition to seeing the DEK Horizon 03iX live, show delegates can learn more about solutions for sub 0.5 area ratio printing by attending the paper presentation on the subject, which will be delivered by ASM's Jeff Schake and Mark Whitmore on Wednesday, October 1 at 2:00 in room 47.

For increasingly miniaturized geometries, robust printing inputs including thorough understencil cleaning systems, nano stencil coatings and precision stencils are critical to a good print outcome.  At a second ASM location on the show floor, booth #234, the complete line of advanced DEK Process Support Products will underscore the importance of these high- performance solutions.  Stop by to discuss the latest technologies including the DEK VectorGuard High Tension interchangeable stencil system, Ultra-Fine Pitch (UFP) Eco Roll understencil cleaning fabric, ProXF understencil cleaning chemistry, Nano-ProTek stencil coatings, Grid-Lok automatic substrate support and Magna-Print universal squeegee blade holder.

"With today's high-density device designs and the increasingly demanding requirements for high reliability, the printing process must be flawless," comments Smith in conclusion.  "All ASM Assembly Systems' DEK products are designed with this – as well as cost-efficiency – in mind.  We look forward to sharing our expertise with SMTAi visitors and helping them meet their manufacturing objectives."
