Nordson YESTECH, a subsidiary of Nordson Corporation and a leading supplier of automated optical and conformal coat inspection systems for the electronics industry, recently installed an FX-940 ULTRA 3D AOI system at FormFactor's facility in Carlsbad, California. The world’s leading supplier of probe cards to manufacturers of DRAM, Flash and SoC, FormFactor has a global network of 16 facilities and employs more than 1,500 people. The company will utilize Nordson’s FX-940 ULTRA 3D AOI system for automated inspection of its complex probe card assemblies.
FormFactor selected the Nordson FX-940 ULTRA 3D AOI system based on its accurate and powerful 3D inspection capabilities, ease of programming, as well as YESTECH’s excellent customer support. FormFactor Carlsbad Director of Operations Kenneth McFerran explained why the company chose the FX-940 ULTRA 3D AOI.
“The FX-940 ULTRA takes our inspection capabilities to the next level with exceptional defect coverage. The system provides reliable, fast, and accurate inspection results, ensuring the highest quality products for our customers," said McFerran. "It is increasing our productivity, and we are able to detect smaller defects earlier in the process, saving us valuable time.”
The FX-940 ULTRA utilizes advanced 3D imaging technology to provide true volumetric height information for the accurate inspection of component bodies, lead banks and solder joints. The system utilizes multi-fringe digital projection, a high-resolution single top-down viewing camera, along with four side-viewing cameras. The advanced image processing technology integrates several techniques, including 3D inspection, color inspection, normalized correlation and rule-based algorithms, to provide complete inspection coverage with an unmatched low false failure rate.
