What X-Ray unit/type best fits my needs?| 19 August, 2016
I’ve been tasked with acquiring both pricing and specification information on potential X-Ray units. If possible I would like to gather information on both low-end and high-end units. Here is some information on our facility. I have been to facilities that use X-Ray but have not had the pleasure to try one out myself. Ideally I'll have a few different units in mind then set up times to see them demo'd. Provided below is a bit of information on our facility. Thank you for your opinions and expertise.
PCB Throughput: Typically 100-200 panels a day, sometimes 300+ if we aren’t switching projects. (~50,000/yr)
% of boards w/ QFN, QFP, BGA: ~25%
99% of our boards are single-sided (could change in the future)
Planning on using X-Ray on 10% of each board run, as well as other various needs.
