Carlsbad, CA, USA – February 15, 2012 – Nordson YESTECH, a subsidiary of Nordson Corporation (Nasdaq: NDSN) and a leading supplier of automated optical and x-ray inspection systems for the electronics industry, will feature the new high speed FX SL advanced AOI inspection system for populated printed circuit boards, at the annual APEX 2012 show. Held at the San Diego Convention Center, in San Diego, CA from February 28 to March 1, they will conduct live demonstrations in the booth of their complete line of AOI and AXI inspection systems.
Nordson YESTECH’s FX SL AOI offers accelerated throughput at over twice the inspection speed of previous generation systems without compromising their proven resolution, defect coverage or extremely low false failure rate. Significant speed gains are realized at all currently available system magnifications of 8, 12, and 25 microns/pixel. The FX SL saves valuable inspection time, delivering high speed automated inspection of solder and lead defects, component presence and position, correct part, polarity and through-hole parts. Programming is also fast and easy, with operators typically taking less than 1 hour to create a complete inspection program, including solder inspection. The FX SL AOI is equally well suited for high-volume and high mix manufacturing environments, providing fast throughput and high resolution, and capable of inspecting 01005 components. The system utilizes a standard package library to simplify training and insure program portability across manufacturing lines. The FX SL AOI embodies over 20 years of industry experience from the technical team at Nordson YESTech and utilizes a flexible and comprehensive set of inspection tools such as angled cameras, 3D height sensor, advanced Fusion Lighting™, full color digital image processing technology, and both image-based and rule-based algorithms.
“We are very pleased to be showcasing our newest AOI and AXI solutions at this year’s APEX show,” said Don Miller, Nordson YESTECH President. “This show is a great opportunity to meet with our valued customers and gives us the opportunity to demonstrate the latest enhancements to our inspection technologies.”
