Printer Options

HMI offers several printer options depending on the model of the printer selected. With each option, our primary goal is to simplify your job by customizing and/or automating the printer to suit your most exacting printing requirements. HMI options include:

  • Automated Vision Alignment Systems
  • Manual Alignment Vision Systems
  • Alternate Print Head Configurations
Automatic Vision Alignment

HMI offers an automatic vision alignment system that allows the printer to automatically adjust the screen to substrate registration with each print cycle. The vision system is integrated with the substrate tooling stage, which becomes motorized to accommodate the incremental adjustment commands sent from the vision system.

The vision system is dependent on fiducial recognition. The fiducial can either be a specific image designed as a fiducial, or the HMI vision system can learn a fiducial from a printed image feature using edge recognition and pixel manipulation.

Fiducial recognition also requires that the video component of the system be able to see the fiducial, regardless of its material composition or size. HMI offers several combinations of lens, lighting and video modules to ensure that the proper magnification, visual spectrum and pixel resolution are available to make the fiducial visible to the processing system.

A unique feature to the HMI automatic vision system is the use a live-printed image for training the system to the screen position. Unlike many vision alignment systems on the market today that use static fiducials on the screen, the HMI automatic vision system uses a printed image of the fiducial image. The printed image contains all the additive tolerance errors inherent in screen printing. Screen stretch, image shift, squeegee drag and many other dynamic properties associated with screen printing are all evident in the live printed image.

The training print can be repeated at any time during the life of the screen to take into account the varying registration effects of changing screen conditions, such as tension loss. The ability to adapt to changing screen conditions can help extend the useful life of the screen and reduce overall process costs. Because the HMI vision system uses a live print image, there is no need to require fiducial fill from the screen vendor. Often a source of error due to incomplete filling, irregular fiducial shape or surface projection, screen fiducial fill typically adds cost to the screen.

The HMI Automatic Vision Alignment System is a straightforward, reliable tool for integrating a computer controlled registration system into your manufacturing process. The system is adaptive to lighting and magnification requirements, it contours to alternate design fiducial elements and its image location set point is based on the actual printed imaged of the screen.

Manual Vision Alignment

For the customer that requires print-by-print substrate alignment to meet their registration requirements, an economical choice for a fully automated vision system is the HMI Manual Vision Alignment System. Ideal for stand-alone printers or manual load printer systems, a manual vision alignment system is an operator-assisted camera and monitor combination.

The operator teaches the system to recognize the printed image fiducials. The monitors can then provide a target area, superimposed on the live substrate image. The operator simply adjusts the printer tooling stage until the substrate fiducials align with the targets.

Similar to an automated vision system, the manual system is dependent on fiducial recognition. The fiducial can either be a specific image designed as a fiducial, or the HMI vision system can learn a fiducial from a printed image feature using edge recognition and pixel manipulation.

Fiducial recognition also requires that the video component of the system be able to see the fiducial, regardless of its material composition or size. HMI offers several combinations of lens, lighting and video modules to ensure that the proper magnification, visual spectrum and pixel resolution are available to make the fiducial visible to the processing system and the printer operator.

The HMI manual vision system uses a live printed image for training the system to the screen position. The printed image contains all the additive tolerance errors inherent in screen printing. Screen stretch, image shift, squeegee drag and many other dynamic properties associated with screen printing are all evident in the live printed image.

The training print can be repeated at any time during the life of the screen to take into account the varying registration effects of changing screen conditions, such as tension loss. The ability to adapt to changing screen conditions can help extend the useful life of the screen and reduce overall process costs.

The HMI Manual Vision Alignment System is a cost effective means integrating a precision adjusted registration system into your manufacturing process. The system is easy to use, adaptive to lighting and magnification needs and fiducial elements. In addition, the HMI manual vision alignment system’s image location set point is based on the actual printed image of the screen.

SLP-2 Print Head

The SPL-2 Print Head from HMI is a Self Leveling Programmable Print Head. The SLP head uses a series of motors and sensors to level itself parallel to the tooling surface. The head can use those same mechanical and electronic components to automatically set squeegee pressure, down-stop and lift points through the print cycle.

As a fully automated print head, the SLP-2 can be completely integrated into the entire line of HMI automated printers. This allows the operator to create and store several complete printer setup recipes in the printer that can now include print head settings. Additionally, as the process environment changes the SLP head will compensate to maintain the preset performance criteria programmed from the recipe.

The SLP-2 Print Head has two squeegee holders, individually programmable. Depending on the setup, each squeegee can be setup as either a flood squeegee or a print squeegee. In an alternate print or SMT application, both squeegees can be setup as print squeegees. Each squeegee independently monitors its own performance and adjusts accordingly to maintain consistent print results.

Controls and settings for the SLP head are made through the printer. They are user friendly including graphic representations to assist in the association of commands with the performance of the head. Various levels of security can be introduced to minimize variations from a printer setup or to centralize process control.

The SLP-2 Print Head is the last piece of the process automation puzzle. In combination with HMI automated features, the printer can now load, align, print and unload without operator interaction. The printer can be used to produce multiple products, requiring multiple setup adjusts, by simply recalling saved setup routines from the printer’s memory. Increased versatility, monitored performance and enhanced throughput on the print line through automation contributes to a higher return on investment.

DS IV Print Head

The DS IV Print Head from HMI is a dual squeegee head. Using two independent sets of controls to set squeegee pressure and down-stop, the DS head uses a digitally controlled pneumatic system to raise and lower each squeegee as required by the printer setup. The air pressure is regulated to a pre-evaluated set point, but is easily adjusted for changes in process conditions.

The print head has two squeegee holders, individually adjusted for angle of attack and for parallelism to the substrate surface.
