Reading time ( words)

Nordson Test and Inspection will exhibit at the Virtual IPC APEX EXPO, scheduled to take place March 9-11, 2021 online at Visit the “booth” here to learn more about Nordson’s comprehensive range of Test and Inspection systems including:

DAGE Assure Flex Automation

The new generation of component counting. Assure Flex Automation is the fully automatic, operator free reel counting solution. Tailored to your specific needs, a broad spectrum of loading and unloading options are available for high throughput stand-alone operation. Assure Flex can also be integrated into a wide range of high capacity storage systems.

Assure Flex is the complete counting solution for every workflow, from walk up operator loading to inline operator free. Assure Flex has an integrated conveyor and can be easily connected to the modules of the Assure Flex Series.


The X series is MATRIX’s high-speed AXI platform. It comes with linear drives for the table axes and detector axes. This motion system guarantees very high speed and the utmost accuracy for positioning.

It is available with the SMT setup:

  • 130kV, 40W sealed tube
  • 14bit FPD with 50µm pixel pitch

The X series machines feature the following configurations/imaging techniques:

  • X2: 2D + SFT
  • X2.5: 2D + off-axis (2.5D) + SFT
  • X3: 2D + off-axis (2.5D) + Planar CT (3D) + SFT

This platform features the Nordson Planar CT, which was released in October 2020, providing increased slice quality for 3D inspection and decreased cycle time.

The maximum resolution with the X series machines is 3µm, making it the perfect choice for solder joint inspection, for the analysis of the following:

  • BGAs
  • Void
  • QFN
  • QFP

SONOSCAN Gen7 C-SAM The Gen7 C-SAM inspection system is the latest generation in Acoustic Micro Imaging. The Gen7 delivers the most advanced hardware ever available allowing new features and analysis that can now be completed faster than ever before.

Advanced features such as PolyGate, SonoSimulator, Virtual Rescanning Mode (VRM) and Frequency Domain Imaging (FDI) add value and confidence. With its large, easy access illuminated scanning area, the Gen7 has the capability to efficiently scan everything from a small part up to 350mm sized parts. 

YESTECH LX-1000 Large Area In-line AOI The LX-1000 automated optical inspection system offers high-speed PCB assembly inspection with exceptional defect coverage, inspecting solder joints and verifying correct part assembly, enabling users to improve quality and increase throughput. 

  • Single or dual sided imaging with full travel imaging sensors
  • 630mm x 630mm large inspection area
  • Optional 3D and/or 2D automated inspection
  • Up to 100 mm clearance
  • Heavy duty conveyor options for samples to 15kg
  • High defect coverage / low false failure rate
  • MES / Industry 4.0 compatible

The Nordson Test and Inspection team looks forward to welcoming visitors to its “virtual” booth and answering any questions about how its market-leading systems can support your business.

A limitation of many 3D optical inspection systems is the cycle time typically associated with processing millions of pixels to reconstruct a full 3D image using data captured from multiple channels. There should not be a compromise between 3D inspection and throughput. A successful inspection deployment should provide oversight for the process, not compromise, interrupt or slow that process.

Today, optical inspection systems are the preferred solution for in-line quality control in the SMT industry. Systems such as solder paste inspection (SPI) or automated optical inspection (AOI) systems for pre- and post-reflow are almost standard in every production facility.
