The DEK Horizon platform offers an impressive array of advanced features as standard and then enables customers to choose from a wide range of options retrofittable in the field to address future applications, production needs or technologies. This inherent flexibility reached new levels recently with the addition of new Horizon cover packages. Providing instant access to both the front and rear of the platform, the lightweight cover packages eliminate the need for further tooling. In addition, quick release panels and uncompromised facilities access mean that all critical areas of the screen printer are close at hand, while an ergonomic design eliminates the potential for operator error.
“Driven by fast changeover and 6-sigma capabilities, Horizon’s industry-leading accuracy and repeatability enable it to evolve alongside production requirements. That’s why we’re delighted to launch the new cover packages which look set to extend this unparalleled versatility even further,” explains DEK’s Karen Moore-Watts. “We know that the manufacturing requirements of today will not be the same as those of tomorrow – and this goes for businesses of all shapes and sizes. Therefore, the key to optimizing equipment utilization and in turn, ROI, is flexibility. Horizon is built to achieve more for DEK customers, enabling them to configure their screen printer exactly the way they need it both now and in the future. Our new cover packages extend this capability even further, directly impacting on areas such as maintenance, safety and productivity.”
DEK’s Horizon is available in a choice of three pre-configured Horizon platforms or as a completely customized technology – all enhanced by the brand new cover packages. Pre-configured platforms include Horizon 01iX, the high accuracy, high throughput technology equipped to achieve 6-Sigma machine alignment capability of 2 Cpk @ +/- 12.5 microns. Horizon 02iX leverages an advanced level of accuracy and reliability and features a sophisticated and fully automated print process. Finally, the Horizon 03iX platform also reinforces the system’s future-proofing capacity and lowest cost-of-ownership commitment, showcasing the fast set-up and changeover capabilities that make Horizon 03iX ideal for prototyping and pre-production.
