Zentech Manufacturing is pleased to announce the addition of the Nordson DAGE Xi3400 AXI system. If your product design utilizes Bottom Terminated Components (BTC), such as BGA's, uBGA's, QFN's and LGA's — these components cannot be adequately inspected after assembly without 3D X-Ray. Zentech is the first electronics contract manufacturer in the region to offer the capabilities of the Xi3400.
Zentech's new system from Nordson DAGE AXI provides complete 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 Digital 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 3D x-ray capabilities further illustrates Zentech's commitment to utilizing advanced automated technology to assure high quality electronic assemblies are delivered to their customers. The Nordson DAGE Xi3400 3D Automated X-ray Inspection (AXI) system complements Zentech's existing 2D Automated Optical Inspection (AOI) and 3D Solder Paste Inspection (SPI) systems.
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."
