Fino, the semiautomatic screen/stencil printer from Essemtec, will be presented at SMT Nuremberg 2013 with a larger touch screen for easier operation, as well as with two larger video monitors for a simple adjustment of stencils and substrates. Additionally, the high-resolution cameras can accommodate a larger zoom.
The Fino offers professional print process control paired with the flexibility of a semiautomatic tabletop printer. The following features make Fino different than other tabletop printers: A touch screen programming terminal, laser-guided vision alignment, and a pneumatic fast-fixation for screen and stencil tension frames. Furthermore, all motions of the squeegee and the print table are motorized and, therefore, are both programmable and reproducible. Because of these features, Fino’s setup and changeover is much quicker than other machines and the print quality is better.
Fino prints on single- and double-sided PCBs, ceramics and foils — through the use of the vacuum table. A specialty of the Fino is its capability to provide borderless printing on substrates up to 450 x 500 mm. Screen and stencil tension frames up to 23" can be mounted.
Because of the larger touch screen, set up and programming of the printer becomes an easy task. The 10X digital zoom of the high-resolution cameras show even the finest structures, making a perfect fine-pitch print possible.
