DEK�s Award-Winning HawkEye Inspection System on Display at Nepcon East

Apr 24, 2006

At the upcoming event, HawkEye will be displayed on board DEK�s flexible Horizon 01i screen printing platform. This versatile system delivers high-speed performance for any manufacturing requirement � from high-mix to high-volume advanced assemblies, including 0201 and CSP packages. Equipped with the revolutionary Instinctiv� user interface for user-friendly operator control, the ISCAN� control area network to support advanced features and an optimized frame for maximum mechanical and thermal stability, the versatile Horizon 01i delivers superior performance, a 10 second cycle time, process capability of 2.0 Cpk @ � 25�m, and an extremely low cost of ownership.

When the revolutionary HawkEye print verification technology is combined with the flexible features of the Horizon 01i, the system becomes even more powerful. The award-winning HawkEye system embodies a truly unique inspection philosophy. Instead of relying on data-rich, quantitative inspection routines, HawkEye isolates errors through good/bad verification set against user-defined, pre-set thresholds. Streamed images, instead of successive still images, are analyzed and any defective boards are identified and removed in real time. With 100% post-print verification at the line beat rate and no programming required, HawkEye delivers dramatic increases in throughput and end of the line yield with amazing simplicity.

The same advanced manufacturing environments that benefit from the Horizon 01i�s speed and flexibility, also realize great efficiencies when incorporating VectorGuard� stencil technology into their processes. The interchangeable foil system allows manufacturers to use one frame and easily change out traditional stainless steel stencils, PumpPrint� stencils for adhesive printing, Eform stencils for ultra fine pitch device printing and laser cut nickel stencils for robust lead-free materials printing. VectorGuard, along with DEK�s full line of stencil technology and consumables for enhanced printer performance, will be on display throughout the 2-day event.

DEK will exhibit with Matrix Sales in Booth #2045 at Nepcon East on May 10 and 11 at The New Boston Convention and Exhibition Center in Boston, Massachusetts. Technical experts from DEK will be on-hand to perform live demonstrations of the Horizon 01i, HawkEye and VectorGuard systems, as well as discuss visitors� emerging technical requirements.
