Reading time ( words)

Saki Corporation, an innovator in the field of automated optical and X-ray inspection equipment, announces the expansion of its global sales organization with the creation of an Asia Sales Department that covers the entire Asia-Pacific area including China, South Korea, Singapore, Thailand and India. Headed by Mr Katsuhiro Eddie Ichiyama, recently appointed Senior General Manager of the regional headquarters in Singapore, the new regional organization will support customers' production of highest quality products with Saki’s high precision inspection equipment and autonomous process inspection system.

In his new role, Mr Ichiyama assumes responsibility for sales, application support, service, and operations in the wider Asian region excluding Japan, providing customers with access to Saki's total M2M solution: 3D solder printing automated inspection system (SPI), 2D/3D automated visual inspection system (AOI), X-ray automated inspection system (AXI) and Saki’s system software lineup.

Mr Ichiyama is relocating to Singapore from Europe where, as regional General Manager since the founding of Saki's European subsidiary Saki Europe GmbH, he has been instrumental in successfully driving business growth in the European region. With Saki's high-quality inspection systems, he has contributed to the quality assurance process for quality-conscious customers from diverse industries including the power semiconductor industry.

Katsuhiro Eddie Ichiyama comments: “Against the backdrop of the current COVID-19 pandemic, expectations for ‘connected’ technology in many areas have risen sharply, and the absolute quality of communication infrastructure has become a real challenge. At the same time, there is a growing need to optimize labor resources with a rise in demand for automated production solutions at our customers’ manufacturing sites. Saki offers a wide range of solutions that improve the efficiency and productivity of production lines with our automated inspection system that solve the problems our customers are facing, particularly those who have transferred production from China, South Korea, Japan, Europe and America to alternative Asian manufacturing sites.”

What is a good solder joint? And how can they be tested not only for purposes of process characterisation, optimisation, monitoring, and control but also for ensuring their long-term reliability? Pete Starkey details a webinar organised by the Europe Chapter of SMTA that was presented by Bob Willis, an expert in soldering, assembly technologies, and failure analysis.

This Month in SMT007 Magazine: Test and Measurement in a Smart Factory

11/03/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Nolan Johnson spoke with MIRTEC President Brian D’Amico about how the role of test and measurement equipment is changing in the smart factory and how shops can adjust to make use of the new technology. D’Amico shares this insight: “While approximately 90% of U.S. electronics manufacturers recognize the potential of Industry 4.0 to improve productivity, many are slow to adopt smart factory solutions within the manufacturing process.”

Reducing Flux Splatter in Sensors and Camera Modules

10/30/2020 | Jasbir Bath, Shantanu Joshi, and Noriyoshi Uchida, Koki Solder America And Koki Company Limited
With the increased use of electronics in new technology areas, flux formulations are being developed to address the new and existing requirements. For sensors and camera modules used for Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) and internet of things (IoT) applications, there is a demand for no-clean flux formulations in lead-free solder paste, which can reduce flux splattering during reflow.
