Dual Lane Printing

Dual Lane printing, with mesh screens or with metal foil stencils, can nearly double the throughput of a single printing machine, meeting growing demands for throughput volume without adding another printer; thus, a Dual Lane line instead of a traditional double-sided reflow line can greatly reduce capital requirements. Dual Lane processing has the flexibility to print multiple products in a single SMT line, e.g., top and bottom side, same side, mother/daughter boards, etc. Dual Lane printing is exemplified by the MPM Momentum Elite Dual Lane model, which can process up to 12" wide boards simultaneously. It is the only machine available with software capability to switch over to full size board manufacturing (up to 24" x 20") in single lane mode, a patented capability.
