Saki to Showcase 3D AOI, SPI and AXI Solutions at NEPCON Vietnam 2022

Reading time ( words)

Saki Corporation, an innovator in the field of automated optical and X-ray inspection equipment, is preparing to exhibit at NEPCON Vietnam 2022. From 14 to 16 September, visitors to the Saki booth #H01 will be invited to discover the latest 3D AOI, SPI and AXI inspection solutions alongside its 2D AOI benchtop model BF-Sirius. Together with our partner JS TECH, the Saki technology team will also present latest hard- and software innovations and demonstrate its Full SMT Line, Smart Factory and M2M capabilities.

Visitors to the Saki booth #H01 will be invited to take a first-hand look at the unique features of the latest hardware and software releases with an emphasis on accuracy, speed, reliability and full-line connectivity capability for applications across all sectors.

The show line-up on booth #H01 will feature:


3D-AOI solution: 3Di-LS2 with 12μm high resolution Z-axis optical head control feature 

The 3D AOI model 3Di-LS2 with 12μm camera head is designed to improve production, boost process efficiency, and maximize product quality. Equipped with Saki’s new Z-axis optical-head control feature, the machine’s advanced capabilities for accurate inspection of tall components, press-fit components and PCBAs in jigs will be a key highlight of the show. The innovative optical-head and side camera offers the industry’s highest level of inspection capability with a height-measurement range in 3D mode up to 40mm. The focus height in 2D is also increased to 40mm. With these capabilities, Saki’s 3Di-AOI Series fulfills inspection capabilities and flexibility far beyond standard SMT inspection processes with accuracy, speed, and ease.


3Si-LD2 with 12μm camera head

Saki’s high-precision and high-speed 3D solder paste inspection machine is a dual-lane system equipped with a 12µm camera head for board sizes from 50mm x 60mm to 500mm x 510mm.


BF-Sirius – Benchtop Solution for Large size PCB’s

BF-Sirius is a high-speed 2D AOI benchtop model that supports large size PCBs up to 500 x 460 mm (19.7″ x 18.1″). The small footprint minimizes cost and floorspace requirements. The system can inspect multiple SMT processes including selective solder and conformal coating. 


Visitors to the booth will also be offered an insight into Saki’s automated X-ray inspection systems that deploy unique Planar CT technology to provide high-speed and high-accuracy solutions for ‘Real 3D’ volumetric inspection. The systems clearly identify voids in the solder of BGAs mounted on boards and non-wetting shapes such as Head-In-Pillow caused by non-wetting of solder, as well as detecting defective parts.

“As one of the world’s top exporting countries of electronics, Vietnam is a key strategic region of focus for Saki,” said Eddie Ichiyama, Saki Chief Sales Manager Overseas. “We’re incredibly excited to be exhibiting again at NEPCON Vietnam after Covid 19 restrictions have finally lifted. We can’t wait to share our expertise and knowledge with the many visitors to the show.”

I recently spoke with Rob Boguski, president of Fremont, California-based Datest and an SMTA vice president and board member. Rob explained why today’s test customers are asking for more information than the traditional pass/fail, offers a preview of SMTA International, and gives an update on SMTA’s planning strategy for the next five years.

Four Silver Linings in the Stormy Clouds of Pandemic, Supply Chain, and Inflation

09/14/2022 | Dr. Ronald C. Lasky, Indium Corp.
It may be difficult to see any bright spots in the current and recent economic situation. We have all experienced the devastation of the pandemic, supply chain issues, and most recently, inflation. However, as a senior technologist for an international materials supplier (Indium Corporation) and a professor of engineering at an Ivy League research university (Dartmouth College), I offer these four silver linings for those of us in the electronics industry.

Solder Paste Printing and Optimizations for Interconnecting Back Contact Cells

07/26/2022 | Narahari S Pujari and Krithika PM, MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions
The interdigitated back contact (IBC) is one of the methods to achieve rear contact solar cell interconnection. The contact and interconnection via rear side theoretically achieve higher efficiency by moving all the front contact grids to the rear side of the device. This results in all interconnection structures being located behind the cells, which brings two main advantages. First, there is no frontside shading of the cell by the interconnection ribbons, thus eliminating the need for trading off series resistance, losses for shading losses when using larger interconnection ribbons. Second, a more homogeneous looking frontside of the solar module enhances the aesthetics.
