Essemtec announces that it was awarded a 2020 Mexico Technology Award in the category of Dispensing for its new Archerfish. The award was announced during a Virtual Awards Ceremony on Monday, October 26, 2020.
The Archerfish, with its scientific abilities – speed, precision and cleverness – inspired us to develop our solder paste jetting solution. The Archerfish waits for its prey in the salty brackish water of the mangrove forests. Just below the water surface, it observes its prey, calculates the refraction of the water jet, calculates the distance and the environment of its target and fires a targeted water jet at its victim. Hit by the jet, the victim falls into the water, where the hunter waits and eats his prey with pleasure.
Just like the Archerfish, the integration of the VDST valve gives our state-of-the-art machine platforms the ability to jet solder paste with dot sizes from 200-800 μm after adjustment of the settings. The Archerfish offers freely selectable and combinable settings of jet parameters for optimal adaptation to customer requirements and characteristics of the dispensing material. The dynamic shockwave technology allows to jet several hundred shots within just a second with high accuracy and repeatability.
“We are very proud and honored to receive this award,” said Pierre Marechal, Managing Director of Essemtec USA.
“We can confirm thatdevelopingtrue industrial-grade jet printing technology has been a serious challenge, but it has beenbacked by the more than 10 yearsof experience by Essemtec in jetting. The fast-growing market attention and success confirm the need of the electronics industry for such technologies in a modern production line.”
