Speedprint Technology announces that it has been awarded a 2012 NPI Award in the category of Screen/Stencil Printing Equipment for its SP700avi Screen Printer. The award was presented to the company during a Tuesday, February 28, 2012 ceremony that took place at the San Diego Convention Center in California.

The SP700avi was designed to deliver unequaled value with 6 Sigma alignment capabilities through the use of one micron resolution solid state linear encoders on all axes combined with the unique Twin Roving Camera vision system. The resulting technology provides major benefits in machine calibration, which is completed at print height in less than 45 seconds, without the need for specialized equipment or personnel. Of equal importance is the capability to monitor the amount of paste on the stencil, eliminating the possibility of insufficient paste being applied before the print process takes place. These advanced features, in addition to under stencil cleaner with vacuum assist, auto stencil load/unload and closed-loop squeegee pressure, are supplied as standard within the SP700 platform.

The SP700avi becomes the SP710avi when it is equipped with the Automatic Dispense unit (ADu).The Dual Syringe, Automatic Dispense unit (ADu) allows users to eliminate additional capital outlay by integrating this functionally into the printer.
 
The ADu defines flexibility from its ease of programming through to calibration and cleaning. Utilizing the PCB Gerber file, an operator can simply drag any region of interest to automatically program volume deposits of paste or glue. There is no need to spend time on each deposit site adjusting to optimize the volume, point and drag. This means that a complete PCB can be programmed for a prototype in just seconds.

Premiering in 2008, the NPI Awards program is an annual celebration of product excellence in electronics surface mount assembly. Premier products based on the finest examples of creative advancement in technology are chosen by a distinguished panel of industry experts.

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.
