Nordson YESTECH to Demonstrate Automated In-line PCB Inspection at Productronica

November 12 - 15, 2013 at the New Munich Trade Fair Centre in Munich, Germany

Nov 5,2013


Nordson YESTECH, a subsidiary of Nordson Corporation (Nasdaq: NDSN) and a leading supplier of automated optical and X-ray inspection systems for the electronics industry, will feature the FX SL AOI in Hall A2, Stand 438 at the Productronica International Trade Fair, scheduled to take place November 12 - 15, 2013 at the New Munich Trade Fair Centre in Munich, Germany. The new high-speed FX SL advanced AOI inspection system for populated printed circuit boards will be on display with live demonstrations during the four-day event.

Nordson YESTECH's FX SL AOI offers high speed "capture on the fly" inspection and utilizes a flexible and comprehensive set of inspection tools, including angled cameras, a 3D height sensor, advanced Fusion Lighting™, full color digital image processing technology and both image- and rule-based algorithms. Configurable for all line positions, the FX Series is equally effective for paste, pre / post-reflow and final assembly inspection. Off-line programming maximizes machine utilization and real-time SPC monitoring provides a valuable yield enhancement solution.

With Nordson YESTECH's advanced color camera imaging technology, the system offers high-speed PCB inspection with exceptional defect coverage. With one top-down viewing camera and four side-viewing cameras, the FX SL inspects solder joints and verifies correct part assembly, enabling users to improve quality and increase throughput.

Additionally, the Nordson YESTECH BX-UV will be fully operational in the "Cleaning and Contamination Testing Center," located in Hall A2, Stand 530 during the four-day event. The BX-UV makes inspection of conformal coatings simple and convenient by automating the inspection process for quality and consistency of coatings under UV lighting with the use of proprietary inspection algorithms. The center will provide practical support to visitors keen to implement new cleaning and contamination monitoring processes as well as overcome reliability failures.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
