ORBOTECH LTD announced today that CIPSA CIRCUITS, a European PCB manufacturer and long-time customer of Orbotech, has completed integration of two Orbotech Fusion AOI systems and one Orbotech Sprint 120 inkjet system, purchased in the first half of 2015, for their PCB production facilities in Spain.
CIPSA CIRCUITS selected the Fusion AOI system for its high accuracy and fast setup. With fewer false alarms and outstanding performance on thick copper, the system delivers high throughput.
The Sprint 120 inkjet system offers high throughput and resolution. This system enables consistent printing with full ink coverage in a single pass with precise drop control, it both enhances the company’s competitive edge and reduces operating costs.
“We at CIPSA CIRCUITS were looking for high capacity, high performance AOI and inkjet systems to reinforce our highest quality product standards and to improve speed and flexibility for our fast prototyping market,” explained Mr. Evarist Michavila Subirana, President of CIPSA CIRCUITS. “Based on our long relationship with Orbotech and our excellent experience with their other production solutions, we decided to add three new high capacity, high performance Orbotech systems to our current production site.”
“We are proud that CIPSA CIRCUITS opted for Orbotech systems. These three additional Orbotech systems support CIPSA CIRCUITS business goals including high quality performance, ease of use and low resource consumption”, stated Mr. Hadar Himmelman, President of Orbotech West. “We welcome the opportunity to support our loyal partner with best-in-class solutions.”
