Surface Mount Techniques introduces new 2220PTV in-line automated printer

Keywords Surface mount techniques, Printing

Surface Mount Techniques has introduced its new 2220PTV in-line automated printer. The 2220PTV is designed for applications where machine vision verification is essential to maintaining high yields against changing board tolerances, varied product mix, and ultra fine pitch printing. The 2220PTV incorporates Surface Mount Techniques' advanced ACCU-LIGN Series 3 vision system, which offers visual recognition of fiducials/pads and motor driven alignment of the tooling plate for highest accuracy and greatest possible throughput.

Advanced features such as adjustable magnetic PCB support, an understencil wiper module, and motorized or programmable conveyor width adjustment, add both flexibility and ease of use to the 2220PTV. A Pentium/Windows based single processor controlled operating system offers the simplicity of an interactive point and click graphical user interface.

The 2220PTV is also equipped with Surface Mount Techniques' dual independent motorized programmable squeegee drive, pressure, stroke and speed with programmable snap-off speed. It is designed for highly repeatable, defect-free printing, without the need for post-print inspection or operator intervention and supports six-sigma quality goals. The 2220PTV is SMEMA-compatible and CE compliant in both design and communications, and is protected by a comprehensive two-year warranty.
