From our booth at Productronica 2015

For the first time a single system is handles the full PCB product definition and production data, including image data. For rigid, flex and flex-rigid. It manages the images stack-up and material details, ERP material references, material characteristics, finishes, classes, and - most importantly - the production stages. It features an XML interface for input into ERP and PPS (Production Planning System).
Integr8tor is Ucamco’s automated client/server workflow system for the PCB industry. It automatically converts incoming customer data, calculates design characteristics and prepares the single PCB for CAM at industry-leading customers world-wide for almost a decade. Integr8tor is integrated with a variety of quotation, engineering and ERP systems.

Ucamco announces new Ledia models with 3 wave lengths

Ledia – optimising the light fantastic

September 25th 2015 - Ucamco is delighted to announce the new 3 Wavelength series of Ledia Direct Imaging (DI) systems for the accurate, high-speed exposure of the industry's most demanding soldermask, inner-layer and outer-layer resists.

When it comes to the direct imaging of PCB materials, Dai Nippon Screen's Ledia multi-wavelength UV LED DI platform has always led the field. First, with its 2 Wavelength Ledia imaging systems, Screen delivered unprecedented DI throughputs on even the most demanding inner- and outer-layer resists, and it gave PCB manufacturers the very first DI technology with which to process standard soldermask resists accurately and at production speeds.

RUWEL invests in new Ledia Direct Imaging System

Finally, a cow with all its spots!

A strategic member of one of the world's largest PCB manufacturing groups, Taiwan-based Unimicron, Ruwel heads the Group's High Reliability Business Unit, supplying the needs of the world's Automotive, Industry and Renewable Energy sectors from its plants in Geldern, Germany and Kunshan, China. In recent years, Ruwel has undertaken an ambitious investment plan aimed at improving its small series production costs, throughput and flexibility, while eliminating human error from its high reliability production processes. Part of this is its latest investment in a Ledia V6 3-Wavelength Direct Imaging system for its soldermask line. Just 10 weeks on, soldermask exposure is no longer a bottleneck, Ruwel is saving up to 4 hours daily in set up, and product quality has improved significantly. Key to the company's decision to buy Ledia is the top quality support it receives from Ucamco and FineLine, Ucamco's representative in Germany.
