Spots Still Available for Oct. 13 Goepel Webinar 'Eliminating False Calls with 2D/3D X-ray Inspection'

Reading time ( words)

Goepel Electronics will present their next free webinar series, “Farewell to false calls resulting from reflections and shadows! Fast, full-coverage 2D/3D X-ray In-Line Inspection” Thursday, October 13th, 2016 at 11 AM EST.

Those that deal with Automated Optical Inspection (AOI) of solder joints on PCBs are all too familiar with the discussion of false calls rate and test escape rates. Traditional AOI systems work with illumination of varying wavelengths and directions. Depending on the surfaces, the reflections and shadows visible in the camera image are properties used for a pass/fail determination. Changes in the solder resist, differing strong reflections from pins and solder joints as well as flux residue and slight contaminations influence such reflections and shadows – one reason for occurring false calls and escapes.

The webinar illustrates the usage of full-coverage X-ray inspection of all solder joints – whether visible or hidden. The result: fewest false calls and escapes. An integrated AOI module in the AXOI system X-Line · 3D handles the inspection of optical properties such as polarity and labelling which are not visible with X-ray.

Furthermore, possibilities and limits of failure detection will be shown in the webinar with many sample images.

As part of the agenda, you will learn more about the benefits of X-ray inspection (AXI) in comparison with Automated Optical Inspection (AOI). The possibilities and limits of failure detection for an AXI system will be discussed as well as the benefits of the combination of both inspection methods (AXI and AOI). Failure scenarios on QFN, BGA, THT, SO-IC- and QFP package types will also be covered.  System concept of the AXOI system X-Line · 3D will be reviewed in detail.

What’s Driving AOI Innovation and Collaboration?

03/25/2020 | Brent Fischthal, Koh Young America
When we look at the optical inspection market growth trajectory, we can see how process challenges helped create innovations. For example, solder paste inspection (SPI) has undergone a shift from 2D to 3D because the 2D inspection technologies manufacturers traditionally used to collect solder deposit images could not solve shadowing problems. Thus, companies developed 3D SPI to capture the printed solder paste height to accurately measure the total volume of paste printed. Several years later, we see the same need for surface-mounted component inspection with AOI systems.

Trends From the Show: Solder and Software

03/18/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
In my role as a media representative, my perspective on IPC APEX EXPO may be a bit different from that of many attendees. Since the I-Connect007 team had the opportunity to talk to many attendees and exhibitors and listen to their stories over the course of the week, our view can be particularly wide. When I reflected on all the conversations, pieces from all throughout the week coalesced and provided a different understanding of and takeaway from the show.
