CyberOptics Corporation (Nasdaq: CYBE), in partnership with DEK, will offer ‘LIVE’ demonstrations of its breakthrough closed loop feedback technology from booth 1G55 at NEPCON China 2013, scheduled to take place April 23-25, 2013 at the Shanghai World EXPO Exhibition & Convention Center.
CyberOptics’ latest SE500ULTRA™ SPI system and DEK’s Horizon APiX print platform equipped with ProDEK will be linked together to showcase the revolutionary closed-loop innovation that enables greater, more precise control over the printing process. The automated data analysis and real-time alignment (offset) correction enabled by the technology pairing also reduces operator intervention significantly.
CyberOptics and DEK have successfully established printer and solder paste inspection data communication that enables stencil cleaning and offset adjustment that leverages the information provided by the solder paste inspection system. With closed loop feedback, the results from SPI can be used by ProDEK’s unique capability to optimize the printing process, efficiently control stencil cleaning cycles, fine-tune printer set-up and monitor process drift.
As solder paste printing is a critical step in the electronics assembly process, implementing closed loop control of the printing operation with SPI technology adds significant value by improving process yield and lowering costs.
“The printing process – now more than ever – is an operation of extreme precision,” explains Allen Huang, DEK General Manager for Electronics Assembly. “Highly miniaturized devices are becoming the norm rather than the exception and technologies like ProDEK in concert with advanced SPI platforms are critical to ensuring high-yield assemblies. We are delighted to once again partner with CyberOptics so that show delegates can see first-hand the important process contributions high-performance closed loop solutions can provide.”
