SMT screen printing equipment manufacturer Speedprint Technology has added a new printer platform to its product range. The SP1550 is expressly designed to accommodate long boards. It will debut on the Speedprint booth #3723 at this year’s APEX Expo in San Diego.
The new SP1550 printer handles boards up to 61 inches (1550mm) in length. The robust platform delivers print accuracy to 12.5µm at 6-sigma and repeatability performance that parallels Speedprint’s famed SP710 platform, using up to four fiducials to optimize alignment – a factor that becomes more critical with long PCBs. The SP1550 also includes built-in SPI inspection technology, and deploys an inventive X-axis under-stencil cleaning system that minimizes the usage of cleaning consumables. Maximum stencil size is 72.8″ x 30″ (1850mm x 736mm).
In common with all other Speedprint print platforms, owners of the new SP1550printer will benefit from Speedprint’s comprehensive support and 5-year parts and 2-year laborwarranty, which remains unique in the industry.“We chose to add this machine to our range to let our users address the increasing number of assembly applications that use long PCBs – typically in sectors like LED lighting,” explains Speedprint President Mark Brawley. “It offers the sameprecision print performance and, thanks to our generous warranty terms, low-risk ownership model as the rest of our proven range,” he adds.
