ACDi Strengthens Capabilities of Maryland Facility


Reading time ( words)

ACDi has added three new pieces of equipment to their Frederick, Maryland headquarters. The company has purchased, installed and is fully operating Optical Control’s SMD X-Ray Counting Machine, Koh Young’s 3D Solder Paste Inspection Machine and the Zenith3D Automated Optical Inspection Machine.

The Optical Control SMD X-Ray counting machine provides exact inventory knowledge which in turn enables more efficient production and increased on-time delivery. The OC-SCAN®CCX.3 significantly streamlines the electronics manufacturing process and gives an exact outline of single component stocks.

The 3D solder paste inspection system from Koh Young is the fastest solder paste inspection machine available with 3D shadow-free moiré technology, warp compensation and a user-friendly Renewal GUI. It delivers true 3D inspection without concern for inaccuracies resulting from shadowing.

Koh Young’s Zenith 3D automated optical inspection (AOI) platform effectively measures true pro lometric component shapes, foreign materials, patterns and solder joints on assembled PCBs to overcome the vulnerabilities and shortcomings of 2D AOIs.

“With the addition of these systems to our electronics manufacturing facility, the company is adopting smart factory technology in line with Industry 4.0 initiatives,” said Agustin Mosquera, Operations Manager at ACDi. “This technology helps us to operate more efficiently, with increased accuracy and elevates the services we offer our clients.”

Practical Implementation of Assembly Processes for Low Melting Point Solder Pastes (Part 2)

07/24/2019 | Adam Murling, Miloš Lazić, and Don Wood, Indium Corporation; and Martin Anselm, Rochester Institute of Technology
In the last three to five years, there has been a resurgence of interest in the use of low melting point alloys for SMT applications. Typically, the compositions are around the eutectic bismuth-tin alloy, perhaps with additions of other elements to increase the robustness of certain alloy properties. Now, there are several new products on the market and numerous ongoing reliability projects in industry consortia.
