PTI Recognizing Benefits of DI System Purchased from Technica USA

Reading time ( words)

Precision Technology, Inc. (PTI) reported to Technica how the CBT/MLI DI they purchased from Technica was providing the promised process improvements and benefits.

Bob Jones, President of PTI stated, “We had been keeping our eye on the DI equipment market for the past couple of years as it relates to pricing and performance. When we decided to move forward with our purchase, it was obvious that the MLI technology offered us the best performance for the price.  Technica has always provided us with excellent service and support so we knew we could count on them to be by our side during our transition to DI imaging. Since we installed the unit we have recognized many benefits. We significantly improved registration, expanded our capabilities related to technology, reduced process steps, lowered cost in production, and have realized many more advantages. The equipment’s performance has allowed us to go 100% digital in primary imaging, and when completely implemented, we will mostly eliminate the use of our photo-plotter by using the DI silver film Technica offers”.

Frank Medina, President of Technica USA commented, “When we originally received this order from PTI, it was very gratifying for two reasons. We knew it would allow PTI to broaden their capabilities beyond their current practices like so many of our customers have realized and it continued our growth of an already significant install base in the Americas.”

Mr. Jones concluded, “Others that had purchased the CBT/MLI technology from Technica have all commented on the added success they have had since they installed this equipment. We too now are happy to be able to make the same statement.”

This month, we will discuss the equipment purchasing decision-making process. How many of you can recall the earliest “dippy dunk” PCB shops, so-called because that’s exactly how it was done? There were no conveyorized lines, no automatic hoists, no load/unload stations, maybe not even a lab for analyzing the plating baths.
