Through this time we have developed long term relationships with numerous companies throughout the world. Providing technical troubleshooting, applications support, and scheduled preventive maintenance are just of a few of our services.

Regularly scheduled preventive maintenance is important in eliminating most predictive failures due to system usage. Lamps must be replaced on a regular basis to maintain proper illumination intensity, control uniformity, and also to prevent catastrophic failure of the mercury arc lamp from excessive use. It is also very important to maintain the XY stage parameters to eliminate premature failure of sub assemblies (air bearings, servo motor and drive rods, etc.). Focus system parameters must be maintained to ensure focus is always centered and product is printed correctly.

Over longer periods of time, various sub-assemblies and hardware have a tendency to drift out of factory tolerance and parts wear that have a direct effect on product. As a result, major preventive maintenance is necessary. This type of preventive maintenance can also be termed as a Baseline. A system baseline measures ALL equipment parameters that are not part of typical preventive maintenance procedures.
