Saki Exhibits Smart Factory 3D AOI and SPI Systems at IPC APEX

Jan 11, 2017

Demonstrations of Saki's intuitive software suite will be available

Saki Corporation, an innovator in the field of automated optical inspection equipment, will exhibit its 3D automated optical inspection (AOI) and 3D solder paste inspection (SPI) systems and their Smart Factory and Industry 4.0 capabilities at IPC APEX 2017, San Diego, CA, in booth 2909. Saki's inspection and measurement systems can be used to communicate with equipment in printed circuit board assembly lines to ensure that the PCBs are produced efficiently and adhere to the highest standards of quality and reliability.

Demonstrations of Saki's software suite will also be available. Saki's algorithm-based software provides extensive programming capabilities. It is intuitive to program and provides enough flexibility that, even if you're not a programmer, the operator can zoom in on the smallest area, see the component, solder, board, and/or defects from every angle, and examine exactly what needs to be seen. Offline programming emulates the machine, so programming and debugging can be done completely off line without having to rescan the board once the initial board image is captured. Changes to programs can be made on-the-fly, without having to stop the manufacturing or inspection process.

Saki's BF-3Di AOI system precisely inspects and measures the height of all devices on a printed circuit board and detects defects such as lifted leads, tombstones, reverses, and height variations at high speeds and cycle times. Saki's 3D BF-3Si SPI system is one of the world's fastest 2-projector solder paste inspection systems available. Its Phase Measurement Profilometry with Liquid Crystal on Silicon (LCoS) technology ensures high repeatability of inspection results.

"The Smart Factory is here now, and it's important that Saki is on the forefront of this initiative," said Satoshi Otake, general manager of SAKI America. "Our collaboration with Fuji, Panasonic, and other leaders in the industry are making it a reality. We hope visitors to IPC APEX will visit our booth to learn more about it."

IPC APEX is being held at the San Diego Convention Center, San Diego, CA, from February 14-16, 2017. Saki is exhibiting in booth 2909.


Since its inception in 1994, Saki has led the way in the development of automatic recognition through robotic vision technology, applying ground-breaking image processing tools to solve inspection problems associated with printed circuit board assembly. Saki Corporation has headquarters in Tokyo, Japan with offices and sales and support centers around the world. Saki has Quality Management System JIS Q 9001:2008 and ISO 9001:2008 certifications.
