Hello. smtguys Is there any body who has or know the in -line machine inspecting the solder paste after printing . what i only know is the centry 2000 made by the CYBER OPTICS. anything else ? for inspecting total pad on b'd. and i want to know the centry 2000 more details from smtguys using this machine.
Sam, Cyber Optics inline paste measurement machine is probably the easiest to program, maintain, and operate but it does have some drawbacks in my opinion. It is slower than some other machines on the market. This might not be a problem unless it becomes the line's new bottle-neck. Phillips has some machines that are configured for inline use (tri-scan, etc..) that have a faster output and measures paste dimensions with much more accuracy. They do require much more training in order to program and maintain. If you are looking for a long term investment take a look at Phillips. Thats just my opinion, I could be wrong!
