Automatic X-ray Inspection Function
Nowadays, more and more devices are mounted on PCB surface, like BGA and CSP. This trend is causing testable areas with AOI limited.
Furthermore, PCB for automobile industry is under severe demand for total inspection. However, the combination of existing X-ray generator and X-ray detector cannot possibly produce stable and repeatable images. This is a fatal problem for X-ray inspection systems, and made it almost impossible to be used automatically.
For an example, think of an AOI system; equipped with fluorescent light bulb with inverter-less power supply for the light source, and camera with terrible sensitivity and contrast degradation, which also gets images burned on easily. With such a system, no matter how incredible the software you equip it with, it would not earn the title of an "Automatic Inspection System". This is exactly what ordinary "Automatic X-ray Inspection" on the market IS.
This simple FACT should have been crystal clear to those who knew enough about X-rays. Nevertheless, there have been way too many inspection system manufacturers who tried creating an automatic X-ray inspection system, without considering that essential factor, and disintegrated into stars. This pitiful fact caused tremendous damage on the reputation of "X-ray Inspection Industry", and resulted in irreparable loss of confidence from users.
In order to resolve these issues, renewal of core devices; X-ray generator and X-ray detector is the task of pressing urgency, and we are proud to introduce them to you today.
