SEC Acquires Orbotech Inkjet Printer
Looking to stay on the cutting-edge and remain competitive, Saturn joined the elite group of domestic fabricators with inkjet printers in their facility when we recently installed Orbotech's Sprint 8-Inkjet Legend Printer to our Romulus fabrication facility. The Sprint-100 is capable of printing down to 0.5mm height text and 3 mil features as well as the its ability to make straight lines in any angle. With its patented UCI Technology for superior quality, ink drops are cured instantly for uniform line width and height, which in turn, reduces cycle times by eliminating baking cycles.
