Saki to Demonstrate 2D and 3D AOI Systems at NEPCON Asia


Reading time ( words)

Saki Corporation, an innovator in the field of automated optical and x-ray inspection and measurement equipment, will exhibit its 2Di-LU1 2D bottom-side automated optical inspection (AOI) system at NEPCON Asia along with its 3D AOI and solder paste inspection (SPI) systems and M2M capabilities for ensuring defect-free electronics for automotive and mobile applications. To demonstrate the speed and effectiveness of its 2D bottom-side AOI, Saki is collaborating with Ersa, Wertheim, Germany, to inspect the bottom-side of a printed circuit board assembly (PCBA) after Ersa's SMARTFLOW 2020 selective soldering process.

Saki's 2D line-scan technology is ultra-fast, capturing the image of an entire 460x500mm PCBA and carriers of 610x610mm in one pass, in real time, storing the image into memory, and creating inspection data for the entire board. The system automates the bottom-side inspection process, eliminates board flipping and handling, and ensures quality after the potting, dip, wave, and selective soldering processes.

Both Saki's 3D AOI and SPI systems have a 12 megapixel camera for the fastest inspection and highest resolution on the market. Scalable 7/12/18µm resolution and closed-loop functionality ensure high accuracy and repeatability. The systems are fully compatible and come with the industry's first-of-its-kind Saki Self-Programming (SSP) software. The software eliminates programming, the need for a golden board, and programming errors.

"We are pleased to be able to collaborate with Ersa in presenting selective soldering and 2D bottom-side inspection," said Zheng Ri, general manager of Saki Shanghai Co, Ltd. "As the industry incorporates M2M communication for its high-speed assembly operations, it becomes even more important to join with other equipment manufacturers to ensure that together we have an assembly process that best meets the stringent demands of the market and our customers.

NEPCON Asia (formerly South China), is being held from 28- 30 August 2019, at the Shenzhen Convention and Exhibition Center, Shanghai, China. Saki will be in booth 1G35.

Comparing Soldering Results of ENIG and EPIG Post-steam Exposure

09/11/2019 | Jon Bengston and Richard DePoto, Uyemura International USA
Electroless nickel immersion gold (ENIG) is now a well-regarded finish used to enhance and preserve the solderability of copper circuits. Electroless palladium immersion gold (EPIG), meanwhile, is a new surface finish also for enhancing and preserving solderability—but with the advantage of eliminating electroless nickel from the deposit layer. This feature has become increasingly important with the increasing use of high-frequency PCB designs whereby nickel’s magnetic properties are detrimental.

Solder Mask Evolves into a Truly Additive Process

09/09/2019 | John Fix, Taiyo America Inc.
The 5G era is creating quite a bit of work for many PCB engineers as the materials required to keep up with the speed, frequency, and latency requirements need to be defined and qualified. Solder mask, for example, now becomes a truly additive process. Read on to find out how and why.

Selecting the Proper Flex Coverlayer Material

09/06/2019 | Dave Lackey, American Standard Circuits
Coverlayers are polymer materials used to cover and protect the copper traces of the flex circuit product. There are a number of different options available for protecting the circuits, and they serve different design requirements in terms of cost, performance, and flexural endurance optimization. When specifying the choice, it is critical to call out not just the type of coverlayer material but also the thickness requirement. This can be very important in certain types of constructions, especially when a flex circuit will experience dynamic flexing during use.
