DEK to showcase product and process innovation at Southern Electronics 2009, Stand 147

Jan 22, 2009

The DEK team is inviting visitors to this year's Southern Electronics Show to unlock the potential of their print process with a wide range of advanced technologies. Being held over 11th � 12th February 2009 at FIVE in Farnborough, UK, Southern Electronics will see the mass imaging leader showcase a wide range of Process Improvement Products and Productivity Tools designed to help customers 'expect more'.

At the heart of DEK's Southern Electronics display will be its popular VectorGuard� stencil system. VectorGuard� is a frameless stencil technology delivering simple and automatic tensioning to prioritize operator safety, system rigidity and ease-of-use for ongoing print process optimization. In addition to the original stainless steel laser-cut VectorGuard� Blue, the DEK team will be showcasing its laser-cut nickel �VectorGuard� Silver� and electroformed nickel �VectorGuard� Gold� stencils � each utilizing the proven printability advantages of nickel to enhance paste release and end-of-line yield for a diverse range of applications industry-wide.

Southern Electronics visitors will also be invited to discover DEK's range of Process Improvement Products, quality consumables engineered by DEK to complement the printer and the printing process to boost throughput and yield, reducing the risk of defects and minimizing the requirement for reworks, technologies such as understencil cleaning rolls, understencil cleaning agents and pre-saturated wipes are just a few of the Process Improvement Products that will be on the DEK stand. Also on show will be the company's productivity-boosting HD Grid-Lok� technology, a flexible, high-density tooling system designed to support an entire PCB assembly without the need for manual intervention. Delivering complete support for every board, HD Grid-Lok can be re-set in seconds to handle virtually any component height, making it ideal for high-changeover manufacturing environments.

Commenting on the DEK offering at Southern Electronics 2009, DEK's Karen Moore Watts explains: �There are many factors that contribute to an effective print � people, platforms, process and of course, products. That's why our Process Improvement Products really do add unprecedented value. Driven by the attention to detail and process 'knowhow' that only DEK can deliver, our technologies enhance performance across every aspect of the print cycle.�

Moore Watts continues: �Take our understencil cleaning rolls for example; featuring low lint levels, an ability to clean a wide variety of apertures, rapid dispense and effective wicking, they are the key to unlocking the very best performance from our multi-award-winning Cyclone Understencil Cleaner for maximum process reward. By showcasing these technologies in conjunction with pioneering Productivity Tools such as VectorGuard and HD Grid-Lok, Southern Electronics visitors will be able to see our 'Expect More' philosophy in action, along with the real difference it could make for their business.�
