April 23, 2019 - Saki Corporation announced the release of its 2Di-LU1 inline bottom-side automated optical inspection (AOI) system at NEPCON China, Shanghai, China, and SMTconnect, Nuremberg, Germany. Saki's 2D line-scan technology captures the image of a 460x500mm printed circuit board assembly (PCBA) and carriers of 610x610mm in one pass, in real time, storing the image into memory, and creating inspection data for the entire board. This system automates the bottom-side inspection process and eliminates board flipping and handling after the potting, dip, wave, and selective soldering processes. The 2Di-LU1 software includes Saki's Fujiyama algorithm, which provides through-hole joint inspection in a single step. It simultaneously inspects for copper exposure, pin detection, pin-holes, solder Ô¨Ållet abnormalities, missing components, soldering problems, and bridges. Saki's inspection software has been used for extra component detection of solder balls and foreign objects and through-hole device inspection in the automotive industry for several years and complies with the IPC-A-610 standard. The platform and construction of the 2Di-LU1 bottom-side AOI system is based on Saki's hardware. The system supports L-size PCBs, high clearances, heavy substrates, and mounted jigs. Saki will feature its 2D bottom-side AOI system, along with its 3D AOI, SPI, and AXI systems and Saki Self-Programming Software, at NEPCON China, Shanghai, China, in the Saki booth 1J30 and the Fuji booth 1G60, being held April 24-26 and at SMTconnect, Nuremberg, Germany, in Hall 4A133 being held May 7-9.
