The Trusted Electronics Manufacturer- MPI
Microboard Processing Inc. (MPI) is located in Seymour, CT in the New England region of the USA. The electronics manufacturing industry’s most demanding customers trust MPI to manufacture their mission-critical electronic assemblies. Their world-class capabilities, unparalleled responsiveness, and rock-solid financial standing enable them to make customers’ product requirements a reality. In 2013, MPI purchased their first ViTrox 3D In-line Advanced X-ray Inspection System (AXI), the V810 Standard System.
Previously, MPI had three of Agilent’s 5DX systems, the predecessor of the V810 and a VVTS Repair station. As production volume increased, MPI decided to purchase one V810 Standard system from ViTrox for its production line.
MPI Greatly Enjoys the Outstanding Capabilities of V810 Standard
V810 Standard’s software and programming environment come with the world’s fastest inspection speed performance and the widest solder related defect test coverage, which increase the yields of MPI’s production lines, as well as the return on investment. Additionally, the system guarantees minimum false call rates, low maintenance and warranty costs, resulting in the reduction of operating costs. All the above features make the production lines at MPI more efficient and effective at a lower production cost. The performance of the first unit made it possible to replace two of the older 5DX units. MPI was delighted to purchase a second AXI system from ViTrox – theV810 Series 2 – in May 2015 to finish replacing all of the older 5DX systems and add more inspection capacity. The strong performance of V810 Standard has made MPI very comfortable with this second purchase as a key component of their technology roadmap.
ViTrox’s V810 X-Ray Inspection System is the fastest and best test coverage AXI system in the world. The advanced X-ray machine is the latest revolution in X-ray technology, inspecting double-sided panels with high defect coverage, high inspection speed and low false call rate. V810 Standard allows MPI to inspect board size up to 18x24". The V810 Standard offers board thickness capabilities supporting boards up to 160 mil thick with board weight of up to 4.5 kg.
The V810 is capable of detecting many defects including shorts, opens, missing components, non-wetting, billboards, tombstones, lifted leads, solder balls, voiding, insufficient solder, reversed tantalum capacitor and excess solder. Additionally, it has the ability to inspect the toughest hidden joint defects commonly found on the production line such as head-in-pillow, package-on-package, PTH and various types of connector joint defects to a standard far beyond other AXI machines on the market.
