MatriX-FocalSpot, a leading global supplier of advanced X-ray inspection systems for electronics assembly and industrial applications (AXI, MXI, CT and NDT), with parent company MatriX Technologies, announces that it will exhibit in Booth #348 at the IPC APEX EXPO, scheduled to take place March 25-27, 2014 at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. Company representatives will demonstrate the XT-2, XT-3, XT-6A and X3 inspection systems.

The XT-2 High Resolution/High Magnification Traceable Manual X-ray Inspection System ushers in a new approach to the more traditional Manual X-ray Imaging (MXI) use model. Designed for ease of use and the quickest solder quality feedback, the XT-2 utilizes a more advanced automated software platform called MatriX Inspection Process Software (MIPS). With this software, the XT-2 can achieve full inspection traceability using bar code or manual product data input, automated image archival and results reporting.
The XT-3 High Resolution/High Magnification Traceable Automated X-ray Inspection System utilizes the same MatriX Inspection Process Software (MIPS) as the XT-2. While the XT-3 is easily and quickly used in manual inspection mode it can also be used in a fully automated inspection process with the exception of "manually" loading and unloading the printed circuit assembly.

The XT-6A Fully Automated X-ray Inspection System with Off-Line Conveyor is highly flexible, featuring a parallel-kinematic Hexaglide manipulation unit that allows extreme off-axis (2.5D) X-ray transmission in the smallest of space with maximum speed and in high resolution. This technology is especially suitable for high-quality X-ray analysis of electronic assemblies as well as material analysis of parts, where flexible part manipulation with multiple inspection angles is needed. The patented Hexapod concept with all 6-axes moving fully independently guarantees precise motion including Planar CT imaging performance. The XT-6A also boasts automatic load/unload setup.

The X3 In-Line 3D X-ray Inspection System combines two imaging technologies, high-speed, high resolution transmission (2D) and off-axis (2.5D) with two unique reconstruction techniques to address X-ray inspection of double-sided boards with high package densities. The X3 provides a flexible approach to inspecting solder joints on a double-sided board. The system is ideal for
high-speed double-sided inspection using the patented SFT™ technique to separate top and bottom solder joints. Additionally, the X3 provides a new approach for high-resolution multiple slice requests for BGAs and LGAs using the MatriX 3D-SART technology.
