Seika Announces New Product Launch at IPC APEX EXPO 2019


Reading time ( words)

Seika Machinery, Inc. plans to introduce the N=1 Checker First Article Inspection System in booth #2343 at the IPC APEX EXPO 2019, scheduled to take place January 29-31, 2019 at the San Diego Convention Center.

Printed-circuit manufacturers have long awaited an alternative to performing first-article inspections by hand. The wait is finally over. By automating every phase of the inspection process, it prevents waste and error, reduces downtime and allows for rapid line changes to maximize your productivity.

Unlike time-consuming, error-prone first-article inspection by human technicians, the new N=1 Checker is a rapid, fully automated process that accurately compares the pilot board to the preloaded specs from the program profile. Features include: 

  • Perform FAI checks up to ten times faster than human inspection (average manual inspection time per component: 10+ seconds; average n=1: 1 second)
  • Precise LCR value testing (Inductance, Capacitance, Resistance)
  • Testing for component presence or absence, orientation and serial number
  • Assisted visual inspection with correct product specs alongside magnified image of every component

Stop by the Seika booth during the 2019 IPC APEX EXPO to see this and much more from Seika.

Cybersecurity: 4 Things OEMs Should Do to Protect Themselves

09/01/2017 | Neil Sharp, JJS Manufacturing
Manufacturing has been declared one of the top three most targeted industries for cyber attacks. While Industry 4.0 and expansion into cyber-physical systems will have a positive impact on the industry in terms of increasing efficiency, they open the door to even more security risks such as a hacker taking over production, or changing the output of the manufacturing process.
