Cirtronics expands capacity with fifth Speedprint screen printer
New Hampshire-based electronics manufacturer, Cirtronics, says it has received its fifth screen printer from Speedprint Technologies.
Like the other Speedprint printers on the Cirtronics production floor, the latest SP710 printer is equipped with Speedprint’s dual-head ADu+ dispensing system, built right into the printer. “There’s no doubt that Cirtronics makes great use of the ADu+ facility in our printers,” says Mark Brawley, President of Speedprint, in a press release. “The print quality from these advanced platforms is a given. But dispensing adds an extra dimension by allowing the company’s manufacturing engineers to remain agile with their assembly process. For instance, they can add extra paste when required and respond rapidly to changes, for example to accommodate customer board changes or product variants at short notice without creating a new stencil.” VP of Manufacturing at Cirtronics, Jim McCall, points out that his Engineering and Quality teams are constantly evaluating the investment required for every new product entering the production floor. “We are committed to manufacturing high-quality products and need to make strategic investments that support our customers’ success,” he says. “The fifth Speedprint printer increases our production capacity and was an easy decision. We have been delighted with the ease of use and reliability of these robust print platforms. Features like in-printer dispensing add to the flexibility we enjoy, allowing us to confidently address any customer subassembly.”
