Essemtec, a leading manufacturer of surface mount technology production equipment, announces that it will feature SP003-MLV, a semi-automatic stencil printer with vision for faster control and alignment correction, in booth 501 at the upcoming APEX 2008 exhibition and conference, scheduled to take place April 1-3, 2008, in Las Vegas.
SP003-MLV features new trans-stencil vision, and offers users reliable and precise printing, a motorized print head, and vertical stencil separation. Additionally, the low-maintenance printer can accommodate stencils or screens up to 23 x 23".
Quality of stencil printing is crucial for product quality. SP003-MLV achieves precise printing by controlling all important print parameters including squeegee pressure, angle of squeegee, print speed, stencil position and stencil separation after printing. With the new trans-stencil vision, print alignment is even easier to control.
The stencil printer is available with different print mounts, giving it numerous flexible applications - vacuum table, groove table, flat table or magnetic table. The magnetic table is used mostly with single- and double-sided boards, and is extremely flexible.
Easy to operate and control, SP003-MLV is ideal for small- and medium-volume production. Print alignment is accomplished by clearance-free, fine-pitch thread screws, and other print parameters can be adjusted on the front panel.
Designed for stencil printing, screen printing, print/print, print/flood and flood/print, the robust stencil printer can print a maximum of 400 x 410 mm, features two cameras (both fast adjustable) and is 700 x 800 x 500 mm (without the optional substructure).
