Printed Circuit Board Legend Printer


Our client came to us needing a process for printing legends on printed circuit boards. The customer needed to print serial numbers, date-lot codes and model number information unique to each board.  Scrap caused by printing the wrong information on the the wrong boards was a disruptive problem. The solution had to be SMEMA compatible and provide an automated inspection system.


PPSI developed a one-of-a-kind inkjet printing system for printing legends on printed circuit boards. The system uses a SMEMA compatible edge belt conveyor to transport boards through the system. Advanced software allows easy programming, and embedded cameras inspect the printing before it is permanently cured with an embedded UV curing system.


The systems technology insured operators printed the right information on the correct boards saving the client time on rework, money on materials and labor and enabling them to increase productivity.
