Nordson YESTECH, a subsidiary of Nordson Corporation (NASDAQ: NDSN) and a leading supplier of automated optical and conformal coat inspection systems for the electronics industry, launched their latest innovation, the FX-942UV ACI In-Line Dual Sided Optical Inspection System for PCB conformal coating and parts, at the Productronica exhibition held in Munich, Germany from 14-17 November 2017.
With dual-sided viewing cameras and proprietary UV lighting, the FX942UV inspects conformal coating coverage and verifies correct part assembly in SMT applications, enabling users to improve quality and enhance yields.
Advanced high-power UV lighting and newly available image processing technology integrate several techniques including coverage inspection, color inspection, normalized correlation and rule-based algorithms to provide complete inspection coverage with an unmatched low false failure rates. The 100mm clearance allows for inspection of tall components.
The FX-942 ACI system compliments the recently launched FX-942 AOI designed for SMT and through-hole device inspection. The FX-942 AOI is highly effective for selective solder, post wave and connector inspections and has a picture in picture (PinP) feature, off-line programming to maximize machine utilization and real-time SPC monitoring to provide a valuable yield enhancement solution. The FX-942 AOI is MES / Industry 4.0 compatible.
Don Miller, Nordson YESTECH’s Vice President, commented, “We are delighted with the way the FX-942UV ACI addresses bottom and dual sided inspection requirements. Our development team worked hard on this latest innovation and we are excited about how it complements Nordson’s position in the PCBA conformal coating market.”
