U.S. Circuit Acquires Miva LED Direct Imager

Reading time ( words)

U.S. Circuit has recently added a Miva 2000L LED Direct Imager to their Escondido fabrication facility. The laser imaging of the Miva 2000L allows for more precise and consistent imaging without the defects previously allowed by photo imaging. The Miva system also provides exact positioning and improved resolution allowing for tighter, more accurate lines, spaces and alignment. Miva’s quad engine LED light head will permit almost any photoresist to be utilized, and ultimately reduces the facility environment impact on these images.

Benefits include:

  • 3 different wavelengths to expose all types of soldermask with little-to-no defects.
  • 50, 25, 12.5 micron resolutions
  • Broad spectrum, broad applications
  • Patented auto-focus technology standard
  • World class registration technology
  • Smallest footprint, lowest operating cost
  • Largest Panel Size: 24” x 24”

U.S. Circuit President Mike Fariba said, “This machine gives us all the advantages of direct imaging.  Not only will it improve our accuracy and speed but allow us to produce smaller, higher density boards. 100% of inner and outer layers are digitally imaged.  Traditional photo imaging is now an obsolete process. It also represents our continued effort to provide our customers the best technology to fulfill all of their fabrication needs.”
