Reading time ( words)

Camtek Ltd., today announced that Gryphon SL, its one-stop-shop solder mask and legend deposition system, has won the Global Technology Award in the environmentally-friendly product category.

The 11th Annual Global Technology Awards were held at Productronica 2015 in Munich, the world's leading trade fair for electronics development and production. The awards showcase the best technical innovations of production equipment, materials and electronic manufacturing services (EMS) in the past 12 months. The awards are adjudicated by an international panel of judges and are globally recognized as the most prestigious and respected awards in the EMS industry.

Rafi Amit, Camtek's Chairman and CEO, commented, “I am very proud of our win at the Global Technology Awards. Gryphon SL is part of the digital fabrication revolution, bringing many advantages to the printed analog electronics industry. Digitalization of the PCB industry will enable standardization, precision and the ability to design more sophisticated and condensed PCBs. Camtek will be an active player, leading the digitalization of the PCB industry with additional products and applications supporting this revolution.”

Added Mr. Amir Tzhori, Vice President PCB Division, "Using Functional Inkjet Technology (FIT) allows controlled material deposition, by additive printing of solder mask only where it is needed. Apart from being much more economical compared to traditional subtractive technologies, printing with FIT requires almost no waste treatment. Furthermore, using Gryphon SL eliminates the need for a number of sub-processes as well as significantly shortening the final curing process.  By removing several traditional process stages, our technology greatly simplifies solder mask application, thereby speeding the overall production cycle, whilst improving yield and providing major environmental advantages.”

Mr. Trevor Galbraith, Editor-in-Chief, Global SMT & Packaging, said, “Our judges viewed each and every entry and in some categories, the competition was very close. In this category, Camtek’s entry stood out from the other products entered, having one of the biggest impacts on the electronics industry in 2014/15.”
