Altus Adds Nikon Metrology's Innovations to Product Offering

Reading time ( words)

Nikon Metrology's latest innovations are now being represented by Altus Group, a distributor of capital equipment for the electronics assembly industry as part of their product portfolio in the UK and Ireland.

The new relationship strengthens Altus’ offerings of X-ray and CT inspection equipment, as the market for these processes grows. One such solution available from Altus is Nikon Metrology’s XT V 160, a high-precision, flat-panel based X-ray inspection system that facilitates real-time imaging and defect analysis of next-generation wafer-level, semiconductor device and PCBA applications. Equipped with an in-house designed X-ray NanoFocus source and high precision manipulator, this industry-leading inspection system offers unrivalled feature recognition compared to any product available on the market today. As such, the XT V 160 NF is a valuable addition to any electronics development and production environment.

"There has been growing interest in X-ray and CT inspection equipment as the need for more powerful measurement techniques increases to analyse ever more densely populated circuit boards. We believe that systems like those from Nikon Metrology will become more and more popular as the need to undertake inspection in a non-destructive manner is ever more important as the popularity of microelectronics increases," said Richard Booth, managing director of Altus. "Nikon Metrology's range of equipment is a welcome addition to our extensive product portfolio and we look forward to a long and successful relationship with them."
