The QTS Wizard Frame Quick Tensioning system will be on display in the HITACHI HP-07 Printer at IPC/APEX 2013, in booth #2440. The Wizard Stencil Stretch Frame System is designed to save time, costs, shipping, and waste over the old labor-intensive industry method of assembling custom cast aluminum or tubular frames and stencil foils.
Ideal for high product mix environments and contract manufacturers, the Wizard Frame System is a quick and efficient way of changing stencils and tensioning them in moments using simple, adaptable components and readily-available shop air (compressed). The system consists of two frame components plus the stencil foil.
The Wizard Stencil Stretch Frame System requires less storage space (since stencil foils can be stored in their compact plastic Container Frames) and eliminates the need for epoxy bonding of the stencil foil to a cast frame, waiting for extended epoxy cure times, etc. Shipping costs are lower since large cast or welded frames don’t need to be shipped with the stencil foils, and due to its design, greater clearance allows for a larger board image area.
HITACHI HP-07 solder paste printers can accommodate large size printed circuit boards with a range from 50 x 50 to 620 x 510mm, with and extremely fast cycle rates, making both models well-suited to work in conjunction with Hitachi PSD’s flagship Sigma G5 high speed modular mounter. The HP-07 is designed and manufactured by Hitachi Plant Technologies, Ltd. (HPT), a sister company of Hitachi High-Technologies Corporation under the same Hitachi group. HPT has specialized in high quality and accuracy printing technologies for half a century.
