Nordson DAGE Launches X-Plane™ at Productronica

Nov 27, 2011

Nordson DAGE, a division of Nordson Corporation (NASDAQ: NDSN), announces that it launched X-Plane™ at the Productronica show in Munich, which took place from 15-18 November 2011.

This revolutionary option for its range of industry-leading X-ray inspection systems uses a proprietary, patent applied for, tomosynthesis, or CT technique to create 2-D X-ray slices in any plane of a printed circuit board assembly without the need to cut or destroy the board. In this way, the superior image quality that Nordson DAGE X-ray systems always provide now can be extended into separating individual layers at a level of excellence that the traditional laminography technique cannot achieve.

Dr. David Bernard, Nordson DAGE Product Manager - X-ray Systems, said, “Standard 2-D X-ray views of today’s double-sided PCBs can be difficult to interpret and analyze as the joints from both sides of the board and within multilayer devices, such as the package on package, can overlap in the image. To combat these limitations, the X-Plane™ option uses the standard Nordson DAGE X-ray systems to simply and easily separate all these different layers, as well as producing slices in any other planar view.  But most importantly, X-Plane™ can do all this over an 18” x 16” inspection area and without needing to cut the board.”


Headquartered in Aylesbury, UK, Nordson DAGE is a unit of the Nordson Corporation and manufactures and supports a complete range of award winning digital X-ray inspection systems and bond test equipment for the printed circuit board assembly and semiconductor industries.  For more information, visit www.nordsondage.com.
