Nordson YESTECH, a subsidiary of Nordson Corporation (NASDAQ: NDSN) and a leading supplier of automated optical and conformal coat inspection systems for the electronics industry, is pleased to announce that Fluid Components International (FCI) has purchased and installed a BX Benchtop AOI system. FCI designs and manufactures thermal mass flow meters, flow switches and level switches used worldwide in industrial process measurement and control applications.
FCI products deliver rugged, robust, superior quality flow and level measurement solutions to chemical manufacturing, oil & gas processing, refineries, power plants, wastewater treatment plants, mining, aerospace and many more. Ralph Weller, FCI’s Director of Manufacturing, “FCI is committed to continuous improvement and automation to deliver the highest quality products to our customers. The YESTECH AOI system provided immediate feedback on the quality of both our pick-and-place, and soldering processes, resulting in faster corrective actions and direct cost savings. What used to be a three minute or longer manual inspection using magnification, now takes only 2-4 seconds using the YESTECH AOI machine. A very valuable feature is that the machine can be ‘taught’ to ignore false positives to eliminate repeating unnecessary failure analysis. The combination of direct cost savings and cost avoidances achieved a payback in just a few short months.”
Nordson YESTECH's advanced 5 megapixel color camera imaging technology offers benchtop PCB inspection with exceptional defect coverage. This benchtop system inspects solder joints and verifies correct part assembly, enabling FCI to improve quality and increase throughput. The system’s four side-viewing cameras add additional inspection capabilities found only on in-line systems.
The BX is equally effective for paste, pre / post-reflow and even final assembly inspection. Remote programming maximizes machine utilization and real-time SPC monitoring provides a valuable yield enhancement solution.
