Software package

For conversion to inkjet printable format

The Advanced Gerber File Rasterizer for PiXDRO inkjet printers enables conversion of Gerber files to an inkjet bitmap format. The software package supports the printing of masking layers, interconnection circuits, encapsulation coatings and many other applications.

Typically, the conversion of a vector (Gerber) file to a bitmap print file can cause rounding and pixelization errors. The Advanced Gerber File Rasterizer minimizes these errors, and can conserve the minimum feature sizes of the original design. The software package is specifically designed for LP50 and JETx inkjet printers.


Your benefits:

  • Specifically designed for PiXDRO inkjet printers, based on extensive functional inkjet experience
  • State-of-the-art Gerber RIP
  • Extremely fast and robust, enabling on-the-fly file conversion
  • Precise, high resolution conversion
  • User-friendly interface

Main features and options

  • Droplet Size Compensation: prevents lines from becoming too wide, and gaps from becoming too small
  • Ink Coverage Control: controls the ink density along the print periphery and within the interior
  • Narrow Line Recovery: narrow lines with dimensions close to the dropsize could disappear during Gerber file conversion, but will be recovered by this function
  • Expert Mode: all commands and options are accessible in the print recipe
  • Independent X-Y DPI: can apply different resolutions for the X and Y axes

Optional Software Module

Software package to quickly define the optimal print settings

Automated Print Optimization (APO) is an optional software module for the PiXDRO LP50 inkjet printer that enables quick and effective definition of the optimal print settings.

APO software is designed for process developers who want to investigate various ink materials and substrates, and who need to define the best print settings to achieve their goals. APO unlocks the full potential of the printer by providing quick access to the various advanced print strategies.

The automated print routine generates a matrix of patterns on a substrate based on the variation of pre-selected input parameters, enabling operators to rapidly find the optimal settings for their application.

Benefits of Automated Print Optimization

  • Enables the highest possible print quality
  • Allows fast and effective print quality analysis
  • Runs independently, allowing more analysis time
  • Automatic variations of all available parameters
  • Results are directly visible for inspection

Main features

  • Supports all printheads and parameters
  • Matches print and waveform settings with required layer properties
  • Optimizes drop flow behavior
  • Simulates nozzle failures in different masking strategies
  • Monitors process stability over time
  • User-friendly reporting format

UV LED module

Precise printing and curing in one process step

The KM1024i printhead with Phoseon UV LED curing module is an optional feature for the LP50 and IP410 inkjet printers. The UV LED module is integrated in the printhead assembly, mounted next to the printhead, enabling precise printing and curing in one movement. It gives users high flexibility and control in tuning their processes. The KM1024i printhead family provides reliable high frequency, high resolution printing in a compact design. Every printhead has 1024 nozzles with tunable drop sizes, nominal at 6, 14 or 32 pL. The Phoseon Fireline FL200 light sources are water-cooled UV LED modules, delivering superior UV curing performance and stability, with a choice of wavelengths at 365, 385, 395 or 405 nm.

Your benefits

  • Printing and curing in one movement for high process control and accuracy
  • Excellent consistency regarding drop angle deviation, velocity and volume
  • Suitable for UV, water-based, solvent, ceramic or nano-particle inks
  • Choice of water-cooled Phoseon UV LED sources, with wavelengths at 365, 385, 395 or 405 nm
  • Adjustable UV power up to 20 W/cm2, controllable via the printer’s user interface

Main features and options

  • Print Head Assembly (PHA) interface for LP50 inkjet printers, and for JS20 storage station
  • Supports all KM1024i printheads with configurable waveform
  • Available with built-in electrical ink heater
  • Curing dose calculation for UV intensity parameter
  • Integrated water chiller for UV LED cooling, or external water cooling supply
  • Anti-reflective features to eliminate UV reflection on printhead and other components
