Reading time ( words)

Nordson Test & Inspection division, part of the Nordson Corporation, announces the formation of the Nordson X-ray Group as part of its strategic expansion plan. This group includes DAGE Manual X-ray Inspection systems, MATRIX Automatic in-line X-ray Inspection systems, Assure Component Counting systems, and Nordson X-ray Technologies (high performance CMOS detectors and high flux X-ray sources). Nordson X-ray will provide the world-class solutions that our customers require to accelerate product development and ensure good quality and yield.

Nordson’s commitment to invest heavily in Research and Development has resulted in continuous and significant world-class innovations at DAGE and MATRIX to meet the ever- increasing complexity of our customers’ needs, further strengthened by the Assure Component Counting capability. Following the recent vivaMOS acquisition, Nordson X-ray Technologies is a newly created business unit ready to offer high-performance CMOS Flat Panel Detectors alongside our existing high flux X-ray sources to OEM customers worldwide. By designing and manufacturing every major component in its X-ray inspection systems, including X-ray source, power supply and detector, the Nordson X-ray Group offers an unrivaled level of vertical integration to deliver unbeatable inspection solutions.

Managed by Mani Ahmadi, Nordson X-ray will be a business group of Nordson TEST & INSPECTION, which in addition to X-ray systems and components also includes award-winning optical inspection solutions from YESTECH, acoustic inspection solutions from SONOSCAN and DAGE Bond and Materials Test applications. Mani Ahmadi commented, “We’ve taken this step as a direct result of feedback from our customers, including our MXI customers who are increasingly requesting a higher level of automation, our AXI customers requiring imaging resolution previously only available in MXI systems and the benefit from the class leading X ray tube and CMOS detector technology developed by DAGE and vivaMOS.”

Initiatives like the IPC Connected Factory Exchange (CFX) and IPC-Hermes-9852 underpin efforts within the industry to develop standards and help create a smart factory. These M2M communication standards, guided in part by Industry 4.0, are altering the manufacturing process by improving metrics such as first pass yield and throughput by applying autonomous process adjustments.

A limitation of many 3D optical inspection systems is the cycle time typically associated with processing millions of pixels to reconstruct a full 3D image using data captured from multiple channels. There should not be a compromise between 3D inspection and throughput. A successful inspection deployment should provide oversight for the process, not compromise, interrupt or slow that process.
