Nordson DAGE, a division of Nordson Corporation (NASDAQ: NDSN), announces that it has been awarded a 2012 EM Asia Innovation Award in the category of Test & Measurement/Inspection Systems - AXI for its new X-Plane™ Analysis – Sub Micron X-Ray Inspection System Option. The award was presented to the company during an April 26, 2012 ceremony in Shanghai during NEPCON China.

Phil Vere, President Nordson DAGE, commented, “We are delighted with this award which reflects the investment we at Nordson DAGE continue to make in the technology and usability of our systems to truly add value to our customers.

X-Plane™ is a revolutionary option for Nordson DAGE’s range of industry-leading X-ray inspection systems that 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 can now be extended into separating individual layers at a level of excellence that the traditional laminography technique cannot achieve. X-Plane™ technology is quick, simple and easy-to-use.

The board is placed in the Nordson DAGE X-ray inspection system and oblique-angled X-ray images are taken 360° around the region of interest. X-Plane™ shows the position and size of voids at joint interfaces and other locations within BGA, CSP, QFN, LGA, etc. Additionally, the technology can identify Head-on-Pillow (HoP) and open joints.

Established in 2006, the EM Asia Innovation Awards program strives to recognize and celebrate excellence in the Asian electronics industry, inspiring companies to achieve the highest standards and push the industry forward.

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
