Circad Invests in PCB Printer To Improve Manufacturing Output and Reliability
Posted on 12th May 2023
As a leading provider of printed circuit board (PCB) design and manufacturing services, Circad Design has a strong reputation for quality and customer service. As part of the plan to improve the output and reliability of their SMT production lines, Circad decided to invest in a DEK Neo Horizon 03iX printer.
The DEK Neo Horizon 03iX is a high-performance inkjet printer that is designed for use in SMT production. The PCB printer features several advanced features that help to improve print quality, uptime, assembly productivity, and reduce the risk of defects:
Stencil cleaning system that uses a high-pressure air stream to remove excess paste.
Innovative printhead with integrated paste height control.
Fully automatic paste dispenser which eliminates the risk of human error.
State-of-the-art Hawkeye system uses a combination of cameras and sensors to monitor the printing process and ensure that the correct amount of paste is being applied to the PCB.
PCB Assembly Investment Improves Throughput and Customer Service
As a result of the improvements that have been made with the DEK Neo Horizon 03iX printer, Circad Design has been able to increase its pcb assembly throughput and improve its customer service. The company is now able to meet the demands of its customers more quickly and efficiently.
Commenting on the decision to invest in Circad’s capacity and quality, CEO Gavin Howlett said: “After the first couple of months I was amazed on how much the printer improved our startup times and efficiency. The DEK Horizon printer was an excellent investment, and we are now looking for another to complement our 3 surface mount lines in our facility in Suffolk.”
Circad Design's investment in this high performance PCB printer, coupled with Circad's recent accreditation to ISO 9001, demonstrates a growing, quality oriented UK manufacturer.
