Rocket EMS Improves Inspection Capabilities with Scienscope’s X-Scope 1800

Reading time ( words)

Scienscope International, a leading American supplier of cabinet-style micro-focus X-ray systems, announces the purchase of an X-Scope 1800 X-ray inspection system by Rocket EMS, a Silicon Valley-based full-service EMS supplier, for its new Carson City, NV facility.

Jacob Andresen, Manufacturing Engineer at Rocket EMS, said “In a time with crazy supply chain problems, we were in dire need of a 2-D X-ray machine as we ramped up production in Carson City.” While visiting the IPC APEX EXPO in early 2022, the company came across Scienscope. After learning about the machine, Andresen said Rocket EMS ordered the X-Scope 1800 X-ray inspection on the spot.

He was most impressed with the quick lead time. “Lead times were several months for most manufacturers; however, Scienscope’s machine was able to be delivered upon receipt of a PO.” In addition to the lead time, he said that he was impressed with the affordable price point and that the programming/reporting capabilities were what Rocket EMS was looking for.

Solder defects in surface-mount technology (SMT) assembly have been an issue for decades. Further, the combined challenges of Pb-free soldering and ever-increasing miniaturization have resulted in new or exacerbated defects in electronics assembly, but there are proven ways to avoid defects. This book will be especially beneficial to PCB assemblers in improving their assembly processes and the reliability of the end-product, eliminating field failures, and reducing costs.

Nolan Johnson and Barry Matties talked with Axiom’s Rob Rowland and Kevin Bennett about current challenges facing EMS manufacturing. During this conversation, the pair discuss the impact of data file formats on pricing, manufacturing, and quality. As they explain, the use of intelligent data formats such as IPC-2581 and ODB++ can speed up the data import process compared to Gerber.

SMTA Atlanta: Peachy in the Peach State

I attended SMTA Atlanta Expo and Tech Forum last week, and it’s safe to say that this industry is definitely back in business in the Peach State. The aisles were busy all day, and the presentations were well attended.
