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.”

Excerpt: The Printed Circuit Assembler’s Guide to… Smart Data, Chapter 2

Companies have been collecting data in large volumes. Highly varied data from manufacturing operations comes in quickly that needs to be validated, and its value prioritized so that it can be turned into something useful—transformed from big data to smart data. The amount of data available has grown exponentially into big data. Twenty years ago, a PCB work order resulted in 100 data records, megabytes of data; today, it is 10 billion records, terabytes of data. The investment in collecting this data and storing it is high. However, without a way to analyze the data, without analytics, it will not result in ROI.

Whenever we discuss data, keep in mind that people have been collecting data, verifying it, and translating it into reports for a long time. And if data is collected and processes are changed automatically, people still will be interpreting and verifying the accuracy of the data, creating reports, making recommendations, solving problems, tweaking, improving, and innovating. Whatever data collection system is used, any effort to digitalize needs to engage and empower the production team at the factory. Their role is to attend to the manufacturing process but also to act as the front line of communications and control.
