RMD Instruments Wins Two 2008 SMT China Vision Award for its LeadTracer-RoHS XRF System

Apr 09, 2008

WATERTOWN, MA - April 2008 - Devoted to the development of new radiation detector and systems technology, RMD Instruments LLC announces that it has been awarded two 2008 SMT China Vision Awards in the categories of RoHS Testing & Services and Quality Contribution for its advanced LeadTracer-RoHS XRF System. The award was presented during an April 8, 2008 ceremony that took place at the Shanghai Everbright Convention & Exhibition International Hotel during NEPCON China/EMT China.

The system is a major innovation and advancement of the XRF analysis technology, and is the only XRF system designed specifically for the electronics industry to provide fast, accurate and portable screening capability to meet RoHS directives.

The LeadTracer-RoHS XRF system has a unique approach because it analyses the entire body of the components in a short period of time, rather than simply carrying out a surface analysis. This speeds up the RoHS screening requirements and improves the overall throughput of the quality control process. The LeadTracer-RoHS� ability to analyze the entire energy spectrum eliminates the possibility of false-negative indications in components that otherwise would have found their way into the manufacturing process.

The use of non-compatible components such as those containing lead in a lead-free process will result in contamination of the solder pot, which is costly and environmentally undesirable. Elimination of non-compatible components from the process saves time, money, and leads to improvement of the line output. Additionally, the consistent flow of parts will reduce the maintenance and repair of the machinery used in electronics assembly. RoHS directives restricting the use of certain substances in electronics have created numerous challenges in both the screening and implementation process. LeadTracer-RoHS� innovative approach with enhanced detection capabilities provides the screening tool that the industry needs to meet the numerous RoHS directive challenges.

The LeadTracer-RoHS XRF system now comes with a sample preparation stand developed with the needs of the end user in mind. The stand has been ergonomically designed for optimum ease-of-use and accuracy and is equipped with RMD Instruments exclusive �quick disconnect� grip to enable users to operate the hand-held, portable LeadTracer-RoHS as a benchtop unit.

The SMT China VISION Awards program is sponsored by SMT China Magazine and honors the top categories of various manufacturing-related products, materials and equipment. The purpose of this program is to recognize, reward and celebrate excellence in the Asian electronics industry.
