Limata GmbH was founded in January 2010 by Matthias Nagel and Attila Heim, former students of the Institute of Electrotechnics at the Munich University of Applied Science. They developed a direct image transfer technology for Printed Circuit Boards (PCB) based on UV LED. Direct imaging with LED bears all the advantages of a direct imaging technology but avoids the drawbacks of the complex and cost intensive Laser Direct Imager. The advantages for the customer are obvious: low investment combined with reduced production, maintenance and energy cost. This new technology has been granted several awards in a short period of time and won the interest and support of three distinguished public and private investors due to the high level of innovation.
