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.

When Canadian artificial intelligence company Darwin AI was founded in 2017, machine learning and deep learning were still relatively new terms. In the past five years, CEO Sheldon Fernandez and his team have been working with this technology to develop some foundational IP to simplify implementation. About a year ago, Sheldon took a “part happenstance, part deliberate” opportunity to develop a vertical offering for EMS manufacturing. Here’s what happened.

With the need to move design data efficiently into manufacturing for assembly and test purposes, starting from a single source of intelligent data seems to be obvious. However, with different applications with different capabilities this can be difficult to achieve. Real-world support for any format can vary between machine and software vendors.
