Also at the MYDATA booth, the MY500 Jet Printer, this is a really cool machine, it’s like an ink jet printer but for solder paste, so no custom stencil required. This is perfect for companies like Adafruit because we have a lot of designs and we would not need to store or wait for stencils. Just load in a gerber and press print 🙂 Very cool!
Now you can take a customer’s order in the morning and deliver finished boards in the afternoon.
Forget waiting for stencils. With jet printing, it’s now possible to prepare jobs in minutes instead of days. If you do 2-3 setups a day, using more than 50 stencils a year, you’ll quickly understand the benefits. If you also have customers calling for last-minute changes, you’ll understand even better.
Completely software driven, a jet printer can easily apply solder paste or SMA onto complex and challenging boards with high precision. You can achieve perfect results for QFNs, pin-in-paste, package-on-package and other new applications – such as jetting into a board cavity. No more trade-offs due to stencil limitations. With jet printing, you never have to compromise on solder joint quality.
Now in use in more than 25 countries worldwide, the MY500 Jet Printer is sparking a movement for change in the electronics industry.
