The Tagarno Magnus HD high-definition inspection system will be on display at the show. The Tagarno Magnus HD offers the highest image quality in the industry with superb ergonomics. Measurement capability and magnifications up to 322X, and true high-definition performance give the Tagarno Magnus HD a versatility and range of applications found in no other system.
Also at the show, Christopher will highlight the new Koki S01X7C48-M500 low-silver alloy solder paste.
