Test Research, Inc. (TRI) presents the release of the new 3D high-speed solder paste inspection (SPI) solution TR7007 SII Ultra, performing at an industry-leading speed of up to 180 cm2/sec.
The TR7007 SII Ultra is built on the highly popular and award-winning TR7007 SII Plus Series and an enhanced mechanical platform to guarantee stability, accuracy, and precision during the inspection. The TR7007 SII Ultra can accurately inspect low solder bridges and compensate board warpage for eliminating local PCB deformation. The SPI solution eases data exchange between the production line and the MES of your choice to enable data traceability for the connected factory.
Realize your production line's potential with TRI's PCBA Test and Inspection solutions and Industry 4.0 data-driven management system, YMS 4.0. TRI's systems are designed to interoperate with other manufacturing equipment to minimize downtime, optimize production quality and reduce operator workload.

As the global chip shortage continues, companies may be tempted to put research and development on the backburner to conserve capital and prioritize production. A primary area of focus has been on increasing production capabilities to meet demand. In this drive to increase capacity, R&D has fallen to the wayside as some companies consider scaling back to refocus on the expansion of manufacturing capacity at current technology nodes. This is a hard choice to make for any company, and even R&D giants like Apple, known for its dedicated investments in innovation, have had to cut R&D budgets below original projections.
One of the highlights of SMTA International is the Technical Conference, where more than 100 papers will be presented across at least 30 sessions. “Work that was delayed due to the effects of COVID has been completed and the amount of material coming from the industry is impressive,” says Julie Silk, VP of technical programs. “We have a packed conference this year in Minneapolis.”

SMTA International is just around the corner, and we are excited to be meeting fully in person and onsite. The conference and expo runs from Monday, Oct. 31 through Thursday, Nov. 3, returning to the Minneapolis Convention Center. Once again, we will co-locate with Medical Design & Manufacturing Minneapolis 2022 (MD&M). As the world continues to adjust to the new normal following nearly years of the pandemic, an in-person industry conference and exhibition is more valuable than ever.
