The new DEK NeoHorizon screen printers feature a totally modular design. Depending on requirements and applications, electronics manufacturers can equip the machines with various clamping systems, conveyors, sensors, camera systems and the latest version of the DEK ProFlow ATx printhead system at any time. With core cycles times of 6.5 seconds and an accuracy rating of up to 15 µm @ 2 Cmk (±6 Sigma), DEK NeoHorizon printers meet the highest standards in speed, efficiency and accuracy. The machines also have a new, highly robust cover that makes it possible to perform all operations and maintenance activities from the front of the machine. The DEK NeoHorizon Back-to-Back configuration provides a dual-track solution that’s smart, flexible and future-proof. Two printers are positioned back-to-back but can be operated independently of each other. If the setup is no longer needed, they can be split up and installed on separate lines again.
