Mycronic introduces industry’s fastest jet dispensing platform at IPC APEX
Mycronic, the Sweden-based SMT solutions provider, is expanding the capabilities of its highly versatile MY600 solder paste jet printing platform. At IPC APEX EXPO 2016 (March 15-17, Las Vegas Convention Center) the company will demonstrate new high-speed and high-precision jet dispensing capabilities for the MY600, making it the fastest dispensing platform on the market.
New high-speed and high-accuracy jet dispensing
The new jet dispenser MY600JD, with its high-performance jet dispensing capabilities, makes it possible for the electronics industry to substantially improve productivity when dispensing a wide range of fluids. The technology is well suited for a variety of industry applications including chip encapsualtion, cavity fill, SMA, gasketing, sealing, edge bonding, conductive adhesives and more. The high-performance MY600JD achieves micrometer precision while delivering throughputs up to 10 times faster than those of traditional dispensers, depending on the application. These productivity gains are yet another example of Mycronic’s ability to give customers a leading technology edge within the electronics industry. The new jet dispensing capabilities are scheduled to be available in the second quarter of 2016.
Key benefits of the MY600JD:
- high-speed and high-precision jet dispensing
- on-the-fly and non-contact
- random dot patterns at high-speed
- wide selection of dispensing fluids and applications
up to 10 times faster than traditional dispensers (application dependent)
A high-performance platform
The 100 percent software-driven MY600 platform is already renowned for its ability to apply high-precision solder paste deposits on-the-fly with micrometer accuracy. Capable of jetting nanoliter droplets of solder paste at 1,080,000 dots per hour, the platform achieves 3g acceleration stabilized by a casted stone base and carbon fiber gantry system, and is controlled by state-of-the-art linear drive systems and high-resolution encoders. For the SMT industry this amounts to an unmatched combination of speed, quality and design flexibility. Whether used as a stencil-free replacement for screen printers, as an add-on solder paste printer in high-volume applications, or as a high-speed jet dispenser, the MY600 is a leading example of the agile performance enabled by the Mycronic 4.0 intelligent factory for just-in-time production.
Visitors to IPC APEX will be invited to view demonstrations of the versatile MY600 platform and to start a dialogue on how the technology can benefit their specific applications. Screen printing replacement, add-on applications and the new jet dispensing capability will all be demonstrated for visitors at booth 2516 at IPC APEX EXPO 2016.
