Electronic Manufacturing Solutions Limited (EMS) has installed a new MEK PowerSpector GTAz+GDAz 550BTL CE 9 Camera inline AOI machine.

The PowerSpector GTAz+GDAz 550BTL contains one off 18.75u HD Camera with telecentric optics and eight off 10u side cameras for side and edge inspection of components. The omnidirectional multi angle, multi-colour LED lighting provides class leading assessment of the solder meniscus and the capability to test a range of criteria on all types of solder joints.

“I am very pleased with the investment in our PowerSpector GTAz+GDAz 550BTL, the additional capacity it brings along with its class leading optics. This is another significant step in the company’s growth”, said Bernard Chubb, managing director of EMS.

This will enable us to increase capacity dramatically, we look forward to being able to provide increased customer satisfaction through this additional resource whilst continuing with industry-leading turnaround times and exceptional levels of quality,” said EMS’ Sales Manager Rob Moore.

“The PowerSpector GTAz+GDAz 550BTL is a critical investment in keeping pace with the increasing miniaturisation and complexity with the class leading optics, software and support being critical to the EMS selecting MEK.”, said Jonathan Plummer, General Manager of EMS. “The MEK PowerSpector GTAz+GDAz 550BTL contains two camera, top and bottom, which are able to inspect both sides of an assembly in one process, be it double sided surface mount only or surface mount and through hole”.

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.
