Schwetzingen, August 2017.

Printed Circuit Board manufacturer Würth Elektronik has ordered the high performance digital inkjet printer n.jet solder mask as an alternative solution for the solder mask application onto printed circuit boards.

“The optimization of our production processes regarding efficiency, cost and industry 4.0 capabilities is one of our main targets. Inkjet printing represents a breakthrough technology for the solder mask application in this direction. That is why we decided to put our best effort into promoting this technology.", says Dr. Lothar Weitzel, Technical Manager at Würth Elektronik.

Solder mask is the – often green – top layer of a printed circuit board. The n.jet solder mask inkjet printer from Notion Systems applies this layer at very high precision with industry leading throughput and robustness.

“We are very pleased that Würth Elektronik has singled out Notion Systems n.jet solder mask as the top performing inkjet platform for the solder mask process”, says Carsten Schimansky, CEO of Notion Systems.

The n.jet solder mask printer is available in a variety of configurations from entry level up to high productivity systems including automated substrate handling. “With our experience in building automated 24/7 production inkjet systems, our customers can choose from several cost efficient automation solutions that were designed to fit the n.jet solder mask printers.”, says Michael Doran, CEO of Notion Systems.
