ACS receives patent for TruCure Systems.
Feb 24, 2004
The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has issued a Patent for an "Infrared drying and curing system for circuit boards". The invention efficiently and safely combines directed air flow for drying and heat removal with panel infrared emitters that provide thermal energy for curing LPI solder mask and legend inks onto printed circuit boards. TruCure technology allows the user to reduce drying and curing cycle-times by 90% or more. The systems provide a substantial increase in productivity in a small footprint, allowing Fabricators the ability to easily adapt it into their facilities.
