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.

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
