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.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
