Speedprint, part of the Blakell Europlacer Group, introduces the Speedprint SP700avi Screen Printer to the North American market.
The SP700avi combines Speedprint’s commitment to high performance and reliability. The system was designed to cope with the rigors of high-volume SMT production while incorporating the flexibility needed in high-mix, quick product setup and changeover environments. “The SP700avi delivers unequaled value,” explained Mark Brawley, Speedprint VP. “The combination of print performance and standard features that the 700avi delivers have not been available to this marketplace until now.”
The SP700avi was designed to deliver unequaled value with 6 Sigma alignment capabilities. The system uses 1 µm resolution linear encoders on all axes combined with a suite of intuitive software that enables total control of the printing process. A rigid one-piece frame is the foundation for the simple, solid-state design that will provide many years of reliable service.
The SP700avi features unique Look Down/Look Down vision that facilitates optimized board-to-stencil alignment, yielding 20 µm performance at 2 Cpk. Additionally, the system is fully equipped, as standard, with many features such as auto stencil load/unload, fully programmable vacuum assisted stencil cleaner and optical inspection of the paste bead. 2-D post-print bridge detection and various tooling solutions also are available as options.
Brawley added, “Speedprint will redefine what users can expect of their screen printer in terms of print quality, reliability, user experience and value. North American users now have greater choice as Speedprint raises the bar in screen printer technology.”

Speedprint Technology became a division of the Blakell Europlacer Group of companies in September 1998. Following the acquisition and re-establishment of Speedprint, the group formed a new engineering team, many of which had years of experience with locally based printer manufacturers including DEK and SMTech, to develop and enhance the company’s portfolio of products. In keeping with the ethos of the Blakell Group’s desire to offer flexible and innovative solutions to the market, Speedprint is committed to delivering affordable leading edge stencil printing technology. The realization of this ambition is clearly illustrated by the company’s flagship avi range of fully automatic inline printers. Today, Speedprint operates from a hi-tech facility based in Poole, in southern United Kingdom.
