MPM Printers Features

Filter By Product

Edison Printer

Advanced Print Head

 

Single axis closed-loop pressure control for dual squeegee eliminates front-to-back variation. A single high-precision load cell provides squeegee force, and a unique algorithm calibrates out non-linearity, maintaining the set pressure across the entire boards surface.

  • OpenApps™ Open Software Architecture allows your MPM Printer can talk to your MES System
  • Functionality without custom development
  • Create your own apps
  • Windows 7 compatible

Paste Height Monitor

The Paste Height Monitor is a robust solution that allows users to monitor the paste roll size on the front squeegee blade during a print stroke.

The Paste Height Monitor combines advanced software and sensor technology to effectively and accurately monitor the paste bead for volume consistency. The sensor is mounted on the back of the squeegee head and measures solder paste bead diameter during the front-to-rear stroke.

  • Avoid defects caused by inadequate paste deposition
  • Monitors paste roll diameter during the front-to-rear stroke
  • Automatically Dispenses Paste/Notifies Operator to Add Paste
  • Prevents defects caused by operators adding excessive paste
  • Recovery Wizard alerts operator to add paste manually
  • Recovery Wizard guides operator through the process
  • No mechanical contact with the stencil
  • Promotes greater print consistency

PrinTrack

 

The PrinTrack™ feature adds traceability, data harvesting and reporting capabilities to your printing process. With PrinTrack, you always have easy access to a comprehensive history, detailing:

  • How your board was printed
  • When the board was printed
  • The process parameters used to print the board
  • All information pertinent for tracking products or troubleshooting the process, if needed.

A flexible web reporting interface can be user-configured to produce traceability reports.

PrinTrack is a portal to the Industry 4.0 evolution; it features open architecture for seamless integration, a standard method of connecting to MES and ERP systems. Open architecture makes PrinTrack traceability highly compatible and expandable to factory-wide Track, Trace, and Control systems.

RapidClean Stencil Cleaner

The RapidClean™ stencil cleaner is a high-speed solution that improves cleaning performance and cuts cycle time. The RapidClean stencil cleaner provides precise wet/dry wipe transition and exceptional cleaning results using a paper-over-plenum design, venturi  vacuum, and patented roller solvent bar delivery system.

The RapidClean stencil cleaner promotes less cleaning because the process is more efficient, reducing both the number of cleaning cycles and reducing cycle time for higher productivity.

  • Greatly enhances fine-feature printing
  • Combines a vacuum and solvent stroke into a single wiper stroke
  • Cuts stencil cleaning cycle times by 5–6 seconds over the standard wiper
  • Improves cleaning effectiveness
  • Reduces paper costs
  • Improves throughput
  • Increases uptime

StencilVision System

 

The StencilVision™ system uses texture-based technology and a digital camera system to check the underside of a stencil for solder paste contamination. The results of the check drive wiper operation.

The StencilVision system:

  • Detects solder paste seepage from apertures to stencil underside
  • Initiates underside stencil wiping sequence to remove contamination
  • Prevents print defects, contamination of PCB caused by dirty stencil underside
  • Efficient – initiates wiping only when needed

Ensures optimum stencil to board gasketing

SPI Print Optimizer

The SPI print optimizer communicates with the external Solder Paste Inspection (SPI) system to continuously monitor and auto-correct X, Y, and Theta registration on the fly to stay on target and prevent print defects.

The MPM-developed communication interface allows the SPI Print Optimizer to see the X, Y, and Theta offsets on printed circuit board (PCB) being printed. The SPI Print Optimizer instantly analyzes the PCB data and provides instructions to the printer to correct those offsets. Automatic and on-the-fly corrections:

  • Increase first pass yields
  • Stabilize the print process by correcting offsets
  • Build consistency
  • Provide a fine-pitch printing advantage
  • Maximize stencil to board alignment
  • Require less operator tweaking since process is automated
  • Reduce set-up time
  • Increase run time

Optimize deposition for better solder joints.
