Speedline to introduce groundbreaking new technology
In addition to presenting details of the latest industry innovations at APEX 2005, Speedline Technologies will make technology news at the show when it unveils its new MPM Accela™ printer. The introduction will create a new paradigm in the way electronics manufacturers measure printer performance. With two new U.S. patents and nine additional innovations patent-pending, the Accela introduces dramatic innovations in parallel processing technology that render traditional cycle time claims obsolete. The Accela produces the most boards per hour of any industry printer, delivering raw throughput gains of more than 20% over the closest competitor, maximizes uptime and yields, and increases the return on capital investment, Speedline will feature the Accela in its booth, number 1227, throughout the show.
