Miniaturization, flexibility and turnaround time are important drivers for the developments in PCB production. To continue to build on its position as one of the leading PCB manufacturers of high-tech PCBs, SOMACIS has purchased the latest Nuvogo 800 Direct Imaging (DI) system for its main plant in Castelfidardo, Italy.

Nuvogo™ 800 is a next-generation Direct Imaging solution capable of imaging on almost every resist type, affording maximum flexibility to PCB makers. Powered by MultiWave Laser Technology™, Nuvogo 800 generates a multi wavelength laser beam for optimal line structure. This provides PCB manufacturers the ability to choose lower-cost resist types in order to further reduce total operating costs.
This high-productivity machine is able to achieve up to 7,000 panels/day/line at unprecedented quality. Superior line quality and registration accuracy is achieved through Orbotech’s field-proven Large Scan Optics (LSO) Technology™. Suitable for the most advanced HDI production, with a resolution of 18µm lines and spaces, Nuvogo 800 ensures a high depth-of-focus critical for maximizing yields in increasingly challenging production environments. The combination of super high-productivity, flexibility to use almost any resist and unmatched yields results in the lowest possible cost-per-print and significantly lowers the system’s total cost of ownership.
