Saki to Demo Advanced 3D AOI Capabilities at NEPCON China


Reading time ( words)

Saki Corporation will demonstrate the advanced capabilities and new extra component detection (ECD) feature of its BF-3Di 3D automated optical inspection (AOI) systems at NEPCON China on April 25-27, 2017 at the Shanghai World EXPO Exhibition & Convention Center in Shanghai, China, in booth 1J25.

Saki's ECD algorithm inspects for stray components, solder balls, and foreign materials across the entire surface of the circuit board and can detect objects of 200 microns or less, thereby eliminating these defects. ECD, coupled with the benefits of the complete scan of the PCB by Saki's line scan technology, provides further assurance of product quality. Saki's ECD is incorporated into both its 2D and 3D AOI systems.

Saki's systems handle all types of boards, including extra-large (686x870mm) PCBs. The BF-3 Di series uses multi-phase ring lighting and Saki's proprietary coaxial top light illumination to measure the solder height and accurately reconstruct the fillet geometry of the image. With the newly developed 4-way side cameras, it accurately detects J-leads, QFN packages, and connector assemblies via 4-way projection technology. These systems measure heights from 0-20mm with 1µm resolution and achieve full automation with very low false calls and zero escapes. In addition, Saki's BF-3 Di software reduces library creation time by over 50% when compared to conventional AOI machines.

Stencil Printing Techniques for Challenging Heterogeneous Assembly Applications

04/16/2018 | Mark Whitmore and Jeff Schake, ASM Assembly Systems
A new generation of near microscopic size SMT chip capacitors has appeared in the market, known as either 0201 or 008004. This article investigates and characterizes the stencil printing process for compatibility with M0201 capacitor assembly. Effects of circuit board quality, stencil thickness, and stencil nano-coating are evaluated against solder paste volume transfer efficiency and raw-volume print distribution.

Why AOI is a Must-have for PCB Assembly

04/05/2018 | Russell Poppe, JJS Manufacturing
AOI has an invaluable role to play in speeding up the process of PCB production, in ensuring extreme precision to catch even the smallest of defects, and in minimizing the potential for time-consuming and costly reworking.
