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.
