PDR Rework and PXI X-ray Join Forces

PDR, a leader in IR rework and test, is pleased to announce that it has joined forces with Pacific X-ray Imaging (PXI) in a cooperative sales, marketing and distribution agreement that ultimately provides customers with advanced capability rework, test and X-ray inspection products.

PXI is a worldwide supplier of X-ray systems and applications services to the electronics manufacturing industry and specialised applications of imaging technology and software analysis. The company was founded in 2003 and consists of the core engineering team from the Nicolet Imaging Systems, GenRad, Teradyne and FocalSpot X-ray divisions.

Additionally, PXI is the primary source for all FocalSpot and Nicolet Imaging System legacy product service, repairs and replacements. This includes all NXR, GRX, X-station and FSX Verifier and Insight series manual X-ray inspection machines. PXI also can update existing older X-ray systems from other manufacturers with new hardware and software to bring them up-to-date with today’s inspection needs.

Since it developed the first pioneering IR system 30 years ago, PDR has grown to offer a world-class global sales and support network through its alliance partners. The company remains at the forefront of SMD rework technology by providing the industry with operator friendly rework systems that are both simple to use and maintain. Equally important is PDR’s ‘core value’ commitment to ‘long-term customer satisfaction’.

With combined experience of more than 50 years in the rework, X-ray inspection and testing of electro-mechanical systems (PCBs/PWBs), the PXI and PDR family of products provides quality tools, extensive knowledge and terrific partnering opportunities/customer service with all of its customers.

Dave White, CEO of White Industrial Corporation, parent company of PDR Americas, stated: “Helping customers successfully identify assembly issues through inspection and testing, and being able to correct issues and experiment via a quality rework platform, ultimately improving processes, is vital to yield enhancement as well as product development processes for new product introductions. The key is providing customers with appropriate tools, knowledge and partnerships to arrive at the best possible outcome.”
