Christopher Associates Inc. announced that it has been awarded a 2011 NPI Award in the category of Test and Inspection – AXI for its Akila XR-3 X-ray Inspection System. The award was presented to the company during a Tuesday, April 12, 2011 ceremony that took place at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Convention Center in Las Vegas during IPC APEX 2011.

WKK and Christopher jointly introduced the new XR-3 X-ray system from the Akila product line. With its low maintenance sealed type X-ray source and 118° emitter, the Akila XR-3 X-ray system is perfectly positioned to provide high value and ease of use for inspecting excess solder, insufficient solder, voids, bridging and opens.

The XR-3 is ergonomically designed to ensure operator comfort and maximize performance. It is very simple to use with intuitive hardware and software controls. The ease of use makes X-ray inspection easier than ever, allowing for wider applications in the manufacturing process.

The Akila line breaks new ground in cost of ownership. The system is designed for advanced applications and production with minimal maintenance and operating costs. The acquisition cost for the line is among the most competitive in the industry, while maintaining world-class standards.

Premiering in 2008, the NPI Awards program is an annual celebration of product excellence in electronics surface mount assembly. Premier products based on the finest examples of creative advancement in technology are chosen by a distinguished panel of industry experts.
