DEK Unveils Large Print Area Photon Platform at Nepcon Shanghai

Mar 24, 2008

Hall W1, Booth 1B30

World leading screen printing and mass imaging specialist DEK is to unveil a large area version of its Photon print platform at Nepcon Shanghai. Called the Photon Vi, the new machine offers substrate printing to 24" x 24" (610mm x 610mm) on demand to meet the diverse volume, mix and size requirements of modern production environments.

Designed for integrated manufacturing and process optimisation, Photon Vi delivers extended flexible substrate image size range from 1.50" x 2.00" (38mm x 50mm) up to 24" x 24" (610mm x 610mm), a 30% increase over the standard Photon platform. The systems is also able to handle large board products up to 16.5lb (7.5kg) in weight and 0.236" (6mm) thick, and features heavy duty remote board stops.

Photon Vi accommodates DEK�s latest suite of award-winning Instinctiv productivity tools. Instinctiv majors on ease-of-use and ensures simple operator transition from other platforms. Product size conversion to large boards is enabled by fully adjustable transport rails and a two-speed board transport control system with software time lag control. The platform is pre-configured with an upgraded understencil cleaner deploying a 4-stage head providing cleaning for a 24" (610mm) wide image using wet, vacuum and dry strokes. A vacuum filtration unit is also included.

Consumables for the Photon Vi include longer board clamps that support 25" of Squeegee and Stencil foil to reduce paste wastage and increase stencil foil life. Board clamps are available as standard Over-the-Top clamps, foiless clamps or edge clamps (snuggers). System options include upgraded VectorGuard frames of 31" x 33" (787mm x 838mm) size to take advantage of the enlarged print area. VectorGuard foils are available in 0.005" (0.13mm) and 0.006" (0.15mm) thicknesses. In addition, side bars can be used to adapt the large print area down to the standard 29" x 29" (736mm x 736mm) VectorGuard format.

DEK�s new Photon Vi platform delivers the stability, accuracy, repeatability and flexibility required to maximise output in manufacturing environments that need to accommodate a diverse range of substrate sizes. The platform future-proofs tomorrow�s large substrate technology in the key areas of advanced technology backplanes, solar and fuel cell panels and multi-up substrate printing.
