Saki to Demo Self-Programming AOI, SPI Software at SMTAI 2018


Reading time ( words)

Saki Corporation will present its new 3Di automated optical inspection (AOI) system at the Fuji America booth number 407, at SMTA International. Saki’s AOI system plays a vital role in enabling M2M communication and helping to make the Smart Factory and Industry 4.0 a reality.

Saki’s 3Di Series is the fastest AOI system in the industry. It has scalable resolutions of 7µm, 12µm, and 18µm, closed-loop functionality, and a sturdy frame with a dual-drive system, resulting in accuracy, stability, and reliability. 

Programming is as easy as SSP—Saki Self-Programming Software, the first self-programming software for AOI and SPI. With Saki Self-Programming Software, no programming is necessary, no golden board is needed, and programming errors are eliminated. Demonstrations of the software will be available.

Also on display will be a video of Saki’s new 3D automated solder paste inspection (SPI) and 3D automated x-ray inspection (AXI) systems.

“We have been working with Fuji for many years to ensure true M2M communication,” said Satoshi Otake, general manager of Saki America. “Before true M2M communication, inspection equipment only had to report good or no good. With M2M, that’s not sufficient. An actual measurement is required along with a record for traceability. For the measurement to be correct, the data converted back to the pick-and-place machine must be correct. This process needs to be automated and reside with the inspection equipment. The reliability of the data is the very basis of M2M communication. Saki’s inspection and measurement systems provide that measurement accuracy and reliability.”

SMTA International is being held October 16-17, 2018 at the Donald Stephens Convention Center, Rosemont, Illinois.

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.
