PiXDRO JETx-M is at the heart of the technology revolution in solder mask application.
The award winning novel inkjet-printed solder mask solution for PCBs (printable circuit board) enables drop-on-demand inkjet printing. The advantages of inkjet-based manufacturing are significant. It avoids costly photo processes, which typically include resist coating, exposure and development steps.
Inkjet printing considerably reduces capital equipment investments, associated labor, floor space, chemicals usage and related handling and disposal costs. Because inkjet is digital and additive, it is highly flexible, thus minimizing manufacturing turn-around time.
Additive and cost-effective solder mask deposition, eliminating photo processes
High flexibility with digital patterning
Environmentally friendly, reducing chemicals and waste
High resolution and registration accuracy
No missing dams, improving yield
No solder mask in holes and vias
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.
