Reading time ( words)

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”.

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.
