Zentech Adds Nordson DAGE Automated X-Ray Inspection Capabilities


Reading time ( words)

Zentech Manufacturing is pleased to announce the addition of the Nordson DAGE xi3400 AXI system. This new Nordson DAGE AXI system offers complete 3D inspection of solder joints and other critical hidden features found in electronic assemblies, PCBs and packaged semiconductors. Ideal for both in-line or off-line operation, the Xi3400’s innovative algorithms enable fast and reliable automated inspection and real-time monitoring of critical process information.  

Utilizing the Nordson DAGE patented Digitial Tomosynthesis Technology, the Xi3400 acquires multiple images in different slice heights in one inspection cycle. The images can discriminate between components on the top and bottom slices of double sided boards for unimpeded automated inspection.

System installation at Zentech is planned for early December. The addition of advanced x-ray capabilities further illustrates Zentech’s commitment to utilizing automated technology equipment sets to assure high quality electronic assemblies are delivered to their customers.

Waleid Jabai, VP of Technology at Zentech comments, “the xi3400 AXI system meets Zentech’s requirements for both high speed and high accuracy in advanced electronic product manufacturing.  The xi3400 AXI’s complex software algorithm and image discrimination between sides of the circuit assembly will provide us with high speed inspection and greatly reduce escapes by eliminating the human error factor -  especially when inspecting BGAs and BTC’s. AXI capability, coupled with our existing SPI and AOI systems, assures our customers that Zentech is committed to the highest quality levels obtainable.”

Solder Paste Printing and Optimizations for Interconnecting Back Contact Cells

07/26/2022 | Narahari S Pujari and Krithika PM, MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions
The interdigitated back contact (IBC) is one of the methods to achieve rear contact solar cell interconnection. The contact and interconnection via rear side theoretically achieve higher efficiency by moving all the front contact grids to the rear side of the device. This results in all interconnection structures being located behind the cells, which brings two main advantages. First, there is no frontside shading of the cell by the interconnection ribbons, thus eliminating the need for trading off series resistance, losses for shading losses when using larger interconnection ribbons. Second, a more homogeneous looking frontside of the solar module enhances the aesthetics.

Optimizing Test Engineering Practices for High-Mix Electronics Manufacturing

08/15/2022 | Mark Laing, Siemens Digital Industries Software
For PCB and assembly manufacturers, test engineering has become a critical factor in enhancing the profitability of new product introductions (NPIs). Given the trend toward high-mix, low-volume production, the journey from design data to an automated PCB testing program must be quicker and more efficient than ever before. In this article, we will discuss how to optimize the efficiency of the test engineering process in accordance with these new market realities.
