Nordson YESTECH to Demo Dual-Sided PTH AOI at IPC APEX EXPO


Reading time ( words)

Nordson YESTECH, a subsidiary of Nordson Corporation and a leading supplier of automated optical and conformal coat inspection systems for the electronics industry, will feature the latest revision of the FX-942 dual sided automated optical inspection (AOI) system for solder and plated through-hole (PTH) applications at the IPC APEX EXPO 2019 in San Diego, California. During the exhibition, Nordson YESTECH will conduct live demonstrations in the booth of their complete line of AOI and conformal coat inspection (ACI) systems.

Nordson YESTECH’s FX-942 dual sided AOI system is ideally suited to inspect the unique challenges of plated through hole (PTH) assemblies, offering full defect coverage, inspecting solder joints and verifying correct assembly. The FX-942 ideally complements Nordson SELECT’s Selective Soldering systems providing inspection capabilities for demanding soldering applications.

The FX-942 saves valuable inspection time by providing high-speed automated inspection of solder and lead defects, component presence and position, correct part, polarity and through-hole parts featuring:

  • Dual sided imaging with full travel imaging sensors
  • 1 vertical and 4 optional angle cameras per side
  •  Up to 100 mm clearance
  • High speed inspection and transfer
  • High defect coverage / low false failure
  • Picture in Picture (P-in-P) feature
  • MES / Industry 4.0 compatible

Programming the FX-942 is fast and intuitive. Operators typically take less than 30 minutes to create a complete inspection program including solder inspection. The FX-942 utilizes a

standard package library to simplify training and ensure program portability across manufacturing lines.

 “We are excited to showcase our latest inspection solutions for 2019 at Apex,” said Don Miller, Nordson YESTECH general manager. “This is the ideal venue to meet with our valued customers and discuss our latest advancements in optical, X-ray and acoustic inspection technologies.”

Impact of Stencil Foil Type on Solder Paste Transfer Efficiency for Laser-cut SMT Stencils (Part 1)

04/24/2019 | Greg Smith, BlueRing Stencils
As innovation and demand continue to drive miniaturization in electronics, manufacturers face the constant challenge of assembling smaller and smaller components with repeatable processes and high yields. Stencil printing is the first step in the PWB assembly process, and improvements to the SMT stencil can significantly improve yields, especially for more challenging miniaturized products. The primary inputs in the SMT stencil manufacturing process are material, equipment, and processes, and by continuously improving these inputs, the overall print process is improved. The most important material in the process of manufacturing SMT stencils is the foil itself. This article investigates foil types used with the goal of determining which foils provide the best print performance.

Tips & Tricks: Water Contamination and Flux Expiry

04/17/2019 | Jason Fullerton, MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions
Solder joints that form properly are not expected to exhibit reduced reliability. However, a higher number of defects created tends to lead to a higher chance that defective connections escape detection through inspection and functional testing, and that’s not a risk to be taken lightly.

Tips & Tricks: Humidity Level for Electronics Assembly

04/10/2019 | Jason Fullerton, MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions
Low relative humidity (RH) can allow for higher static charges to build on objects. It can also affect solder pastes, especially OR-class pastes, and this can reduce print performance and stencil life. Read on to find out what level of RH you need for your assembly facility.
