Goepel Inline X-ray System Offers Shorter Cycle Times and Faster PCB Handling

Reading time ( words)

Goepel electronic has launched the latest version of its X Line · 3D in-line X-ray system, which features improvements in hardware and software functions to ensure even higher test speeds and shorter cycle times.

The X Line · 3D Series 300 offers improved PCB transfer, significantly reducing PCB assembly handling time. In addition, systems of the speed variant X40PLUS are now capable of scanning speeds of up to 510 mm/s during image acquisition. Also, the Series 300 has a new soft-stop option that can be used to stop circuit boards and ceramic substrates in seconds, thereby avoiding the risk of damage as with mechanical "hard stops".

On the software side, the new version of PILOT AXI 3.3, which is now available for the X Line · 3D, features advanced test functions that capture air inclusions (voids) and solder balls even more reliably. In addition, it has new filter options that provide additional image optimization.

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.
