Since the inception of DEK Printing Machines in 1968, our team has been behind some of the industry’s biggest breakthroughs. The introduction of the DEK proven platform philosophy changed the face of screen printing and is now an accepted global industry standard. Other pioneering advances include DEK HawkEye inspection, DEK ProFlow® enclosed head printing, DEK Cyclone understencil cleaning, DEK Gemini dual lane printing and the DEK Solar Eclipse and Apollo photovoltaic metallization platforms.
ASM Assembly Systems has accumulated in excess of 100 DEK product patents and recorded 18,000 DEK printing machine installations – and this figure is growing all the time! Prior to joining ASM, the DEK team numbered over 800 people in facilities all over the world with export to over 50 countries around the globe. Now, as ASM Assembly Systems, the team has grown and our global footprint and resource have increased exponentially.
While DEK’s ownership changed in July 2014, our focus on delivering the most advanced and cost-effective printing solutions remains at the core of the DEK development philosophy. With our Placement Solutions Division SIPLACE colleagues and the backing of ASM Pacific Technology, Ltd., we are poised to deliver transformational technologies that will enable even more efficient SMT processes and foster our ongoing commitment to printing excellence.
