Nordson Yestech, a subsidiary of Nordson Corporation and a supplier of automated optical and conformal coating inspection systems for the electronics industry, will feature the new high speed FX-942 dual sided PTH automated optical inspection system for populated printed circuit boards, at the annual Apex 2018 show. They will conduct live demonstrations of their complete line of AOI and conformal coating inspection systems.
The FX-942 dual sided automated optical inspection system is ideally suited to inspect the unique challenges of plated through hole (PTH) assemblies, offering high-speed inspection with exceptional defect coverage, inspecting solder joints, and verifying correct part assembly in pre-wave or post-wave applications. The FX-942 ideally complements the company’s selective soldering systems providing inspection capabilities for demanding soldering applications.
Programming this automated optical inspection system is fast and intuitive. Operators typically take less than 30 minutes to create a complete inspection program including solder inspection. It utilizes a standard package library to simplify training and ensure program portability across manufacturing lines.
The FX-942 saves valuable inspection time, delivering a complete, high-speed automated inspection of solder and lead defects, component presence and position, correct part, polarity and through-hole parts featuring:
- Dual sided imaging with full travel imaging sensors
- 1 vertical and 4 optional angle cameras per side
- Up to 100 mm clearance
- High speed inspection and transfer
- High defect coverage / low false failure
- Picture in Picture (P-in-P) feature
- MES / Industry 4.0 compatible
This system is highly effective for selective solder, post-wave and connector inspections, enabling users to improve quality and enhance yields. Off-line programming maximizes machine utilization and real-time SPC monitoring provides a valuable yield enhancement solution.
“We are very pleased to once again be exhibiting our latest inspection solutions at Apex 2018,” said Don Miller, Vice President. “It is the ideal opportunity to meet with our valued customers and demonstrate the company’s latest advancements in AOI. The FX-942 is yet another example of new inspection technology from Nordson Yestech and we look forward to discussing the many benefits the system offers with our clients at the show.”
