DEK Galaxy



DEK Galaxy:

The ideal solution for semiconductor, hybrid and high-end SMT applications

The DEK Galaxy platform brings the efficiency and precision of modern printing methods to the world of semiconductor production and hybrid-packaging applications. It sets new industry standards in advanced semiconductor packaging with regard to yield, repeat accuracy and efficiency.

High-precision linear drives and powerful camera systems provide the basis for the extremely fast and accurate performance of the 
DEK Galaxy. With transport options for highly precise wafer pallets and the printing of substrates with innovative tooling technologieslike DEK Virtual Panel Tooling (VPT), the DEK Galaxy satisfies even the most demanding requirements. And with the DirEKt Ball Placement option, you can realize higly precise wafer printing and screen printing processes, from very precise wafer bumping to the direct setting of solder balls down two diameters of 0.2 mm.

Get in touch with us. Our semiconductor process experts will gladly put together a DEK Galaxy configuration that is optimized for your specific needs. Thanks to the machine’s modular design, you will always be flexible and able to find the right solution as your requirements change.

If you need a highly precise and exceptionally powerful printer platform for high-end SMT applications in the ultra-fine-pitch range, the DEK Galaxy is the solution of choice.
