- The PANDIA high-performance system offers unseen capabilities for customizing, extraordinary power, and true 4K native resolution.
At Formnext in Frankfurt, Austrian optics specialist IN-VISION Technologies AG will announce the next big step in the delivery of ultra-precise structured light: the all-new PANDIA Light Engine, designed for dynamic exposure with multiple wavelengths.
Christof Hieger, CTO of INVISION explained, “While already our current systems deliver industrial-grade performance and reliability, we are opening up with PANDIA new opportunities for digital imaging.”
The new UV Light Projector will be used in PCB-lithography, advanced packaging, and advanced additive manufacturing. PANDIA has a native resolution of 2K. IN-VISION, as a Texas Instruments Design House partner, provides the Light Engine with the ability to upgrade to the latest 4K Chipset from TI as it becomes available.
Pandia Light Engine for dynamic exposure
Some of the main features of the flagship system will be:
- PANDIA is designed for moving exposure while calculations are performed onboard, allowing for scrolling availability for larger building areas.
- Stackability for increased productivity: Because of the system’s narrow width, projectors can be lined up to very small pixel sizes to build systems with large building areas.
- An open system with limitless customizability: Users can customise their applications or use ready-made software thanks to the built-in FPGA. The onboard FPGA provides up to 7 Gigabytes of storage for images, programming logic, and DSP slices for customization.
- Working with multiple materials requires multiple wavelengths, which are provided by two independent illumination modules.
- Pandia comes standard with a telecentric lens with a pixel size of 10um; any other resolutions can be easily realised with custom lens development in-house at IN-VISION.
- The optimised water cooling provides full power for all applications – up to 9 watts per wavelength.
- High-Speed Data Interface: Gigabit Ethernet or an optical data interface, which is flexible, lossless over long distances, and immune to electromagnetic interference, are used to achieve maximum transfer rates.
- Field-changeable illumination modules: The customer can easily swap out the two LED modules, which do not require any additional calibration or setup. This is possible even after thousands of hours of continuous operation.
- Operator User Interface: An onboard HMI informs the operator about the operating status and critical parameters.
“PANDIA opens up unparalleled adaptability to the needs of the industry. The system redefines the boundaries of DLP technology in Additive Manufacturing and lithography.” The all-new System is available immediately.– Florian Zangerl, IN-VISION´s CEO
