Computrol Installs Third Essemtec Tucano Stencil Printer

Feb 21, 2014


Essemtec’s Tucano USC-V automatic stencil printer

Computrol, Inc., a world-class provider of mid- to low-volume, high-mix electronic manufacturing services to OEMs, announces that it has installed its third Tucano USC-V automatic stencil printer from Essemtec. The new system is installed at Computrol’s Meridian, Idaho plant.

Computrol purchased another Essemtec Tucano stencil printer due to its large print area, easy setup and consistent results,” said James Spencer, Computrol’s Engineering Manager. “The two printers that we currently have in service have performed exceptionally well and the service from Essemtec has been great.”

Essemtec’s Tucano USC-V automatic stencil printer was designed based on experiences from solar wafer printing and metallization. Tucano features a unique design with only one XY-drive for vision, PCB stopper, stencil cleaning system, stencil load and unload, and 2D inspection. The special design increases the reliability of the printer and simplifies maintenance. Additionally, Tucano requires less space than other printers with a 23.9 x 22.8" (608 x 580 mm) printing area on a footprint of only13.99 ft2 (1.3 m²).

Tucano uses fewer motors than other systems for its operation, and therefore, uses less drive control electronics and energy. The printer optimally combines the requirements on quality and accuracy with speed and reliability. Tucano can be adapted perfectly to perform every print task. Additionally, Computrol will benefit from auto-setup functionality, post-print inspection and quick changeover. For more information about Essemtec’s Tucano, visit www.essemtec.com.
