Reading time ( words)

Technica USA announced today that they have completed their Direct Imaging Demo Lab for Chime Ball Technology (CBT), formerly known as Maskless Lithography (MLI). Technica is the master distributor in North America for CBT. CBT has established themselves as a major supplier of Automated and Semi-Automated Contract Exposure equipment in Asia and the acquisition of the MLI direct imaging technology has allowed CBT to expand their product offering world-wide. 

Frank Medina, President of Technica USA stated, "We established the Demo Lab to demonstrate our commitment to our customers and the CBT technology. The Demo Lab will be utilized to provide demonstrations of the latest technology offered by CBT as well as qualify dry films, solder masks and other ink products being introduced to the market.” 

The MLI technology represents the second largest installed base of direct imaging equipment in the U.S.  As part of the transfer of technology, Technica assumed the main responsibility of service and support for current and future installations. Technica currently has 5 individuals on staff with engineering, manufacturing, quality and applications support experience from their previous employment with MLI. CBT also retained the MLI R & D team that has remained in the U.S.  

Medina continued, “We look forward to showcasing the new demo lab and welcome our customers to contact their local Technica representative to arrange a visit to our facility today."
