Saki Recognized with Mexico Technology Award


Reading time ( words)

Saki Corporation was honored with the Mexico Technology Award in the category of inspection equipment-SPI systems for its Saki self-programming (SSP) software. SSP software revolutionizes the assembly process with the first software that programs solder paste inspection (SPI) and automated optical inspection (AOI) equipment in just a few minutes and clicks, instead of hours, without a golden board. The award was presented at a ceremony held at the SMTA Expo and Tech Forum held in Guadalajara, Mexico.

The Mexico Technology Award recognizes the best new innovations in the electronics manufacturing industry in Mexico and celebrates the companies and people that are achieving the highest standards and driving the industry forward. They are designed to promote best practice in the areas of technical innovation and manufacturing quality and productivity.

Saki Self-Programming is a seamless system that doesn't require DFM software. It removes the programming discrepancies and variations that arise when programming is done by different programmers. SSP enables quick turnover, high-mix/low-volume production, and faster throughput. The Offline Debug Function allows remote fine-tuning without stopping production. Eliminating the programmer, programming, golden board preparation, and machine down-time provides significant cost savings.

"We are very excited to receive this award," said Satoshi Otake, general manager of Saki America. "Mexico is a world class, high-tech, manufacturing market and a major hub of automotive manufacturing. Many manufacturing facilities in Mexico are using Saki's inspection equipment to ensure the high quality of their products."
