Circuit Board Marking System Offers Cost Savings For Product
California -- JETEC Corporation® introduces it's BMS-Series
Board Marking System, a fully-automated printed circuit board
(PCB) marking systems capable of printing bar code, 2-D
code, logos and custom characters directly onto printed circuit
boards. Available as an in-line or stand-alone solution, the
system eliminates the need for paper labels, automated label
applicators, custom screen printers and rubber stamps. The BMS-Series
accepts both single and multi-up PCB's ranging in size from
2" x 2" to 24" x 18" and is 18% faster
than previous models.
eliminating paper labels, the BMS-Series can generate
significant cost savings and return on investment for PCB manufacturers.
For example, the average cost of a 1.00 in. x 0.25 in.
preprinted polyester label is $0.03 per label, while ESD polyimide
labels can exceed $0.10 per label. The BMS-Series prints
ink which immediately dries to the touch, is impervious to solvents
and fluxes, and presents none of the ESD concerns associated
with paper labels. Additional cost savings can be realized
because the system's direct marking process does not require
expensive Hysol ink patches on the PCB for a fully readable
to offer high in-line throughput, the BMS-Series features
an industrial inkjet printer capable of printing character heights
as small as 0.35" tall. This high speed printer, combined
with the system's advanced motion control mechanism, allows
the BMS-Series to achieve board-to-board cycle times
of less than 6 seconds. In addition, the system is capable of
handling a variety of board widths, identifying single and multi-up
boards, and placing marks along both the X and Y planes. It
is fully compatible with SMEMA machine interface standards.
BMS-Series enables manufacturers to address mandatory
PCB identification requirements for Supplier Idenification Code
and Item Identification Code. Its flexible inkjet printing process
also allows PCB manufacturers to fully comply with PCB
identification standards such as ANSI MH10.83M/ISO 15434;
ANSI/EIA 706 and EIA PN 3497.
system is designed for ease-of-use and minimal downtime. It
is compatible with Windows 3.11, Windows 95/98 and Windows NT.
JETEC's IMS Software features a user-friendly touchscreen
interface and offers fast equipment setup and part change-over.
The BMS-Series is built to integrate with SMEMA
compatible conveyors, and LIFO buffers and accumulators. It
features an industrial-grade CPU and a 10base T network adapter.
Flexibility is enhanced by a number of options, including a
bar code reader, 2-D code scanner, dual print head configuration,
user-defined custom access database, and in-line vision based
BMS-Series represents a cost-effective solution to
the product identification and traceability requirements faced
by PCB manufacturers," said Derreck Ford, President
of JETEC Corporation. "User friendly IMS
software interface allows for minimal set-up and part change-over
time. Everything is simple, serviceable, neatly wired and easy
