Stevenage Circuits invests in equipment
UK-based PCB manufacturer Stevenage Circuits has invested in an Orbotech Sprint 120 ink jet legend printing machine.
In addition to increasing the company's overall manufacturing productivity within its solder-mask department, the Sprint 120 is 'capable of printing at 1040 DPI with character sizes of less than 0.5mm, and line widths of 100um'. "We are one of the first manufacturers to approve the use of the latest generation of ink from Tayio, this being the IJR-4000 FW100 variant that has been specifically designed for printing upon coverlay clad flexible panels with excellent adhesion properties. The ink has been approved and tested to IPC-TM-650 standards for adhesion and hardness testing and this includes use for dynamic applications", the company states in a short release.
