ESSEMTEC introduces SP003-V semiautomatic stencil printer with vision

ESSEMTEC AG, a manufacturer of surface mount technology production equipment, has announced that the SP003 semiautomatic stencil printer is now available as SP003-V with vision for faster control and alignment correction.

SP003-V (Figure 2) 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 × 23in.

Quality of stencil printing is crucial for product quality. SP003-V 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-V 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 × 410mm, features two cameras (both fast and adjustable) and is 700 × 800 × 500mm (without the optional substructure).
