OLEC AccuTray AT30 Auto Align Imager
The AccuTray™ AT 30 is OLEC’s innovative, automatic vision-based registration system for imaging printed circuit boards or chemical machining. The AccuTray AT 30 can handle tasks impossible to accomplish using conventional equipment and offers a much higher level of control and versatility.
The OPTEK InnerVision is the world’s first x-ray coordinate measuring machine. It measures and reports the positions of internal features such as coupon pads on inner layers of multi-layer printed circuit boards, reinforcements and fastener inserts in composite structures and other such encapsulated or laminated features.
Penta HASL_LFSL with WISE PrePost Clean
Innovation, user- and customer-orientation, highest quality and non-pollution are the supreme objectives of PENTAGAL’ vertical Hot Air Leveling System. It is more cost-effective, space-economizing, more available and ecological than present horizontal automatic Hot Air Leveling Systems.
Schmid Strip-Etch-Strip (SES)
The Schmid SES lines with innovative filter systems clean the entire stripping solution before it is returned to the tank container. Depending on the resist type, a cyclone filter system, a drum filter system or a combination of both is used. The stripping process adjust to the type of resist then removes the remaining photoresist on the circuits.
Orbotech Discovery AOI
Orbotech’s AOI systems deliver consistent results that are faster, more accurate and much more cost-effective than visual inspection, bringing a new level of quality to touch screen manufacturing. Powered by field-proven SIP Technology™ to further improve manufacturers’ bottom line results, Discovery, the world’s bestselling AOI, provides simple, intelligent and powerful AOI performance.
Schmid Develop-Etch-Strip (DES)
The Schmid DES line has an innovative filter technology for the stripping process adjusted to the type of resist. This machine also has transport systems adaptable to all circuit board formats. Because of the very high mix of PCB requirements from customers, essentially customizing the DES step based on the characteristics of the board, is extremely important.
Automated Electroplating Equipment
Calumet Electronics has invested in two automated vertical plating lines from Process Automation Limited, LLC. Each plating machine is equipped with 18 stages including six copper plating stages and one tin plating stage. Transporter control is managed by a PLC housed in a separate control cabinet. Mechanical agitation is provided on all process and rinse tanks. Plating process variables are managed through OSST software ensuring consistency and eliminating human error.
Pola & Massa Deburr
The Pola & Massa further prepares the panel with an air knife that removes additional debris from drilled holes, scrubbing the board with four auto-adjusted scrub brushes, then a high-pressure rinse and dry cycle. The process is fully automated and managed through an Omron PLC ensuring consistent preparation and cleaning for every panel.
Hitachi Drill Machines
Calumet Electronics has invested in the innovative technology and advanced engineering of Hitachi drill machines. Hitachi produces the fastest, most accurate and most reliable CNC PCB drilling machines on the market. Hitachi drill machines provide the following benefits to Calumet Electronics and its customers: reduced bit exchange time using Hitachi’s quick insert changer; chip clogging prevention using cyclone jet technology; reliable broken bit detection accomplished with a unique method of counting chips and maintaining long term stability; stable small hole drilling with minimal bit breakage using a front thrust spindle; flexible tool management with the easy-handling tool cassette design; panel scrap eliminated through the use of the tool height detector that prevents the use of damaged or wrong size tools.
