Saki Presents 3D AOI Side-Angle Optics and Lighting Technology at NEPCON Thailand

Reading time ( words)

Saki Corporation, an innovator in the field of automated optical inspection equipment, will present its 3D automated optical inspection (AOI) equipment with innovative side-angle cameras and ring lighting technology at NEPCON Thailand 2016, held June 22-25, 2016, at BITEC in Bangkok, Thailand. Saki's 2D AOI system for simultaneous double-sided PCB inspection will also be on display.

Saki's BF-3Di-L1 3D AOI system has a new optical head, side-angle cameras, and 4-stage ring lighting for optimum illumination and better visual image capture and measurement of the printed circuit board assembly, for all PCB configurations. The circular lighting gives more consistent illumination throughout the field of view, with brightness controlled and shadows eliminated no matter the height or density of the components. Side cameras capture angles to show side views that previously weren't visible. The result is improved accuracy and reliability. This system inspects heights up to 20mm and parts as small as 01005s, capturing reversed or inclined components with an escape of less than 1 ppm. It can be used for simple set-ups, like golden board comparisons, or with its full algorithm-based capabilities for full measurement and inspection.

The BF-10BT 2D offline AOI system simultaneously inspects both sides of the circuit board with user-selectable 10μm and 20μm dual-resolution, for the ultimate in double-sided PCB inspection. Its robust and highly repeatable hardware is built for 24/7 continuous operation. It inspects 01005 (0402) components and detects solder balls down to 150 microns with high speed and superior data handling. It can be used for final inspection, through-hole inspection after wave or selective soldering, or manual inspection.

"Exhibiting at NEPCON Thailand is a great way for us to show our new AOI systems to a larger number of people in Thailand and the Asia Pacific region," said Francis Wong, managing director of Saki Asia Pacific, Thailand. "Thailand has long been an important market for Saki. We have both an office and sales rep here."

What’s Driving AOI Innovation and Collaboration?

03/25/2020 | Brent Fischthal, Koh Young America
When we look at the optical inspection market growth trajectory, we can see how process challenges helped create innovations. For example, solder paste inspection (SPI) has undergone a shift from 2D to 3D because the 2D inspection technologies manufacturers traditionally used to collect solder deposit images could not solve shadowing problems. Thus, companies developed 3D SPI to capture the printed solder paste height to accurately measure the total volume of paste printed. Several years later, we see the same need for surface-mounted component inspection with AOI systems.

Trends From the Show: Solder and Software

03/18/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
In my role as a media representative, my perspective on IPC APEX EXPO may be a bit different from that of many attendees. Since the I-Connect007 team had the opportunity to talk to many attendees and exhibitors and listen to their stories over the course of the week, our view can be particularly wide. When I reflected on all the conversations, pieces from all throughout the week coalesced and provided a different understanding of and takeaway from the show.
