Pneumatic Inking Systems

Xandex Pneumatic Inkers incorporate the convenience of DieMark disposable ink cartridges with the reliability of a microprocessor-controlled pneumatic dispensing system for the ultimate inking solution. Ink dots are deposited via pneumatic actuation of the inker shuttle mechanism and a simultaneous pulse of air into the cartridge reservoir. There is no filament and no direct contact with the wafer surface. Dot size is determined by cartridge type and air pulse duration. Adjust the controller setting to achieve a range of dot sizes from a single cartridge. For a comparison of Xandex Pneumatic and Electric Inking Systems, go to Selecting Xandex Inking Systems.
