Panasonic Factory Solutions Co., Ltd., a business unit of Panasonic Corporation, announced today that it will start taking orders for its new Screen Printer, SPV (Model No. NM-EJP7A, NM-EJP8A*1) in June, 2015.

There is a growing manufacturing challenge to shorten cycle time of SMT production of PCBs for smartphones, tablet PC’s, wearables, and small mobile devices of all kinds. In addition, the need for advanced manufacturing automated equipment is becoming an increasingly demand due to increases in sophisticated technology requirements, pressure to improve inventory turns, higher labor cost, manpower shortage, etc.

Screen Printing is the first critical process in SMT line; therefore, productivity and quality improvement are critical requisites. Panasonic has responded to these demands with the new SPV Screen Printer employing a total performance upgrade in productivity, operating rates, and reliability. In alignment with Panasonic’s goal to provide a better life, a better world, we continue to provide customers with new solutions for manufacturing excellence while helping reduce TCO*3.

Details of features

1. Innovative Board Handling System enables customers to leverage various production flow schemas as a means to increase in production efficiencies

  • The PCB sorting function enables dual-lane production
  • Eliminates the need for additional conveyor investment and promote more effective use of the factory floor

2. Printing cycle time 10.0 s*2 removes bottlenecks in the SMT line

  • Super high-speed (10.0 sec) for the entire printing process including PCB transfer, Recognition, and Cleaning per substrate.
    Simultaneous printing operation and mask cleaning eliminates wasted process time
  • Provides simultaneous high-speed printing and reliable quality

3. 2-in-1 printing function delivers a high-speed, dual-lane system with a smaller investment

  • A single SPV can simultaneously process both front and back side printing by utilizing a common screen mask that includes both images.
  • An optional mirrored unit that butts to the back side of the master unit enables further reduction of cycle time; therefore, offers non-stop changeover

4. Panasonic’s new SPV delivers the SMT Industry’s best-in-class process capability - Surface correction function enables 2 Cpk ±5.0μm 6σ capability
