Seika Announces New Product Launch at IPC APEX EXPO 2019


Reading time ( words)

Seika Machinery, Inc. plans to introduce the N=1 Checker First Article Inspection System in booth #2343 at the IPC APEX EXPO 2019, scheduled to take place January 29-31, 2019 at the San Diego Convention Center.

Printed-circuit manufacturers have long awaited an alternative to performing first-article inspections by hand. The wait is finally over. By automating every phase of the inspection process, it prevents waste and error, reduces downtime and allows for rapid line changes to maximize your productivity.

Unlike time-consuming, error-prone first-article inspection by human technicians, the new N=1 Checker is a rapid, fully automated process that accurately compares the pilot board to the preloaded specs from the program profile. Features include: 

  • Perform FAI checks up to ten times faster than human inspection (average manual inspection time per component: 10+ seconds; average n=1: 1 second)
  • Precise LCR value testing (Inductance, Capacitance, Resistance)
  • Testing for component presence or absence, orientation and serial number
  • Assisted visual inspection with correct product specs alongside magnified image of every component

Stop by the Seika booth during the 2019 IPC APEX EXPO to see this and much more from Seika.

The Foundation of Industry 4.0

04/15/2020 | Oren Manor, Mentor, a Siemens business
When adopting IoT solutions, start with three main considerations. First, assess which parts of the production cycle can be automated and/or monitored most effectively with IoT devices connected to an analytics platform. IoT technology should be matched to the production cycle of your operation.

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.

This Month in SMT007 Magazine: Business Practices Drive the Smart Factory, Not the Other Way Around (Part 1)

03/19/2020 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
In Part 1 of this conversation, Sagi Reuven— business development manager at Mentor, a Siemens Business—makes the case that smart factory implementations must start with traditional process analysis and improvement before the data capture process is useful. He also covers how sometimes the key to utilizing Industry 4.0 comes from a change in mindset rather than a drastic change or investment in new equipment or processes.
