June 3, 2012 -- Light-emitting diode (LED) specialist Marl International Ltd. will install the DEK Horizon 03iX print platform to adapt to new circuit board size requirements up to 620mm long. Along with the Horizon 03iX platform, Marl International will also use the VectorGuard stencil system, a stencil tensioning technology. Marl will use Nano-ProTek to reduce cleaning requirements and increase quality.
The screen printing tool suite offers high accuracy to enable consistent thermal conductivity for high-output LEDs, said David Moorhouse, operations director, Marl International. Lighting-grade LEDs need to meet the theoretical lifetime performance set in the market, he added.
The Horizon 03iX offers 12s cycle time, process alignment capability at 2 Cpk @ ±25µm 6-Sigma and machine alignment capability of 2 Cpk @ ±12.5µm 6-Sigma.
