After successfully securing beta sites with lead- ing electronics manufacturers in Europe and Asia for its revolutionary PCB manufacturing system, the Rainbow Process Line, Rainbow Technology Systems is seeking development partners in America. Developed over six years, the Rainbow process represents a breakthrough for the electronics industry by incorporating coat- ing, imaging and developing of PCBs in one compact, automated unit which promises to make board production faster, easier and more protable. One of the key advantages of the system is its ability to print ne line detail pro- ducing track and gap of 20 microns and under. As the industry drives towards increasingly ner levels of detail, the Rainbow process is already capable. e completely self-contained unit takes up less than 20 sq.m of oor space and comes complete with its own environmentally con- trolled enclosure, which helps to maximize potential yields. e process is automatic, requiring minimal operator intervention and is capable of delivering up to 3 double-sided panels per minute at up to 24" x 22" standard size, ready for etching. Central to the success of the Rainbow process is the proprietary solvent-free liquid etch resist which does not require pre-drying before imaging. Using a wet resist oers a much better adhesion to the copper than can be achieved with traditional dry lm methods. Rainbow will be speak- ing to potential U.S. partners at this year's IPC APEX EXPO. Chris O'Brien, Sales and Marketing Man- ager, explains: "e Rainbow Process has now evolved from the prototype stage to the building of fully functioning equipment designed for full scale production. 2014 will be a key year for us as we put the rst machines through their paces in full production mode on customer's sites in Asia and Europe. In addition to the Rainbow Process Line, we are also establishing global sales of other innovative coating equipment, such as our Panda Coater, which puts UV curable liquid coatings onto phototools, stabilizing them and extending their useful life. We will have a Panda Coater on our stand at the show alongside our Desktop Coater, which can carry out the Rainbow process on a smaller scale."
