Randolph, N.J. — Glenbrook Technologies announces that the Rochester Institute of Technology has selected a Jewel Box 70-T real-time X-ray inspection system for use in the Surface Mount Technology laboratory of its Center for Electronics Manufacturing and Assembly (CEMA).
This facility, one of the most advanced of any university in the world, provides facilities, equipment, capabilities and technical expertise to help manufacturers improve process yields and productivity while lowering costs.
RIT and Glenbrook also have formed a research partnership that allows Glenbrook to use the lab for demonstrations and refer customers to CEMA for X-ray services. The company will provide support to CEMA for funding proposals and ensure that students have state-of-the-art, hands-on X-ray inspection capabilities.
CEMA supports RIT's undergraduate and graduate degree programs in electrical, mechanical and manufacturing engineering and engineering technology. It also offers applied research and evaluation of materials, as well as beta testing, evaluation and process capability analysis for electronics packaging equipment and process evaluation.The lab has the capability to produce prototype assemblies and provide board design, manufacturing, inspection, testing and rework services.
At CEMA, the Jewel Box X-ray inspection system will be used for a variety of applications, including circuit board inspection, ink tank inspection and print cartridges. The system delivers precision X-ray images of ultra-high resolution and gray scale accuracy. Using Glenbrook's patented X-ray camera technology, in conjunction with its 4 micron X-ray source, it delivers precise real-time X-ray images at magnifications from 7X to 500X with a resolution of 100 line pairs/mm.
Glenbrook Technologies has developed and marketed real-time X-ray inspection systems to the electronics industry for two decades. For more information, visit www.glenbrooktech.com.
