Saki Opens New Factory in Chiba, Japan

Reading time ( words)

Saki Corp. recently opened a new factory in Chiba, Japan to expand production of its automated inspection and measurement systems. Saki’s 2D and 3D automated optical inspection (AOI)and solder paste inspection (SPI), and 3D automated X-ray inspection (AXI) systems are used in printed circuit board assembly (PCBA) as well as for X-ray inspection of insulated gate bipolar transistors and sensors in automotive applications, especially in advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).

"The requirements for increased inspection in the assembly of smartphones, communication servers, and automotive electronics to increase quality and eliminate device failure has created even more demand for our inspection systems," explained Nori Koike, COO, Saki. "Our new Saki Corporation Chiba Factory expands our production capacity and improves quality, cost, delivery for our customers."

Saki Corporation has headquarters in Tokyo, Japan; R&D, design, and engineering centers in Europe and China; and offices, subsidiary companies, and distributors throughout the world. Saki Corporation Chiba Factory was opened last December 20, 2016.

A limitation of many 3D optical inspection systems is the cycle time typically associated with processing millions of pixels to reconstruct a full 3D image using data captured from multiple channels. There should not be a compromise between 3D inspection and throughput. A successful inspection deployment should provide oversight for the process, not compromise, interrupt or slow that process.

Today, optical inspection systems are the preferred solution for in-line quality control in the SMT industry. Systems such as solder paste inspection (SPI) or automated optical inspection (AOI) systems for pre- and post-reflow are almost standard in every production facility.

This Month in SMT007 Magazine: Test and Measurement in a Smart Factory

11/03/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Nolan Johnson spoke with MIRTEC President Brian D’Amico about how the role of test and measurement equipment is changing in the smart factory and how shops can adjust to make use of the new technology. D’Amico shares this insight: “While approximately 90% of U.S. electronics manufacturers recognize the potential of Industry 4.0 to improve productivity, many are slow to adopt smart factory solutions within the manufacturing process.”
