Speedprint, part of the Blakell Europlacer Group, will premier the Speedprint SP700avi Screen Printer in FHP Reps’ Booth #441 at the upcoming SMTA International Conference & Exhibition, scheduled to take place October 18-19, 2011 at the Fort Worth Convention Center in Fort Worth, TX.
The SP700avi combines Speedprint’s commitment to high performance and reliability. The system is 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 screen printer delivers unequaled value with 6 Sigma alignment capabilities. The SP700avi 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. Two-dimensional post-print bridge detection and various tooling solutions also are available as options.
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.
