Nordson YESTECH Launches Dual-Sided Optical Inspection System at productronica


Reading time ( words)

Nordson YESTECH launched its latest innovation, the FX-942UV ACI in-line dual-sided optical inspection system for PCB conformal coating and parts, at productronica 2017.

With dual-sided viewing cameras and proprietary UV lighting, the FX942UV inspects conformal coating coverage and verifies correct part assembly in SMT applications, enabling users to improve quality and enhance yields.

Advanced high-power UV lighting and newly available image processing technology integrate several techniques including coverage inspection, color inspection, normalized correlation and rule-based algorithms to provide complete inspection coverage with an unmatched low false failure rates. The 100mm clearance allows for inspection of tall components.

The FX-942 ACI system compliments the recently launched FX-942 AOI designed for SMT and through-hole device inspection. The FX-942 AOI is highly effective for selective solder, post wave and connector inspections and has a picture in picture (PinP) feature, off-line programming to maximize machine utilization and real-time SPC monitoring to provide a valuable yield enhancement solution. The FX-942 AOI is MES / Industry 4.0 compatible.

Don Miller, Nordson YESTECH's vice president, commented, "We are delighted with the way the FX-942UV ACI addresses bottom and dual sided inspection requirements. Our development team worked hard on this latest innovation and we are excited about how it complements Nordson’s position in the PCBA conformal coating market."

Equipment Matters in Solder Paste Printing

12/06/2017 | Stephen Las Marias, I-Connect007
The solder paste printing process has always been considered a major contributor to yield loss. According to many studies, solder paste printing accounts for up to 70% of all PCB assembly defects. For the December issue of SMT Magazine, we interviewed experts in the solder paste printing process to learn more about the key issues leading to this huge percentage of defects, and the technology developments that are addressing these challenges and improving yields in the process.

What Matters Most is Communication

12/04/2017 | Stephen Las Marias, I-Connect007
While there may be new techniques and strategies, technologies, equipment, tools, and materials to employ and utilize, there is always one thing that will ensure the manufacturing/ assembly success of your product: communication. Communication between the designer and the assembler will help improve the manufacturability and assembly of the final product—even before the board design gets fabricated.

DFx on High-Density Assemblies

12/01/2017 | Jonas Sjoberg, Chris Nash, David Sbiroli, and Wisdom Qu, Indium Corporation
Use of new technologies poses a number of challenges for solder paste selection, PCB design, assembly process, and reliability. The type of end product will have different challenges, concerns, and requirements in all aspects. The assembly line for many of these end products will look very similar, but specification limits would be different.
