Pemtron Technology, an inspection equipment developer and supplier, is gearing up for the 2023 IPC APEX EXPO, scheduled to take place Jan. 24-26, 2023 at the San Diego Convention Center in California. The company plans to bring a full line up this year: Saturn 3D Inline Solder Paste Inspection System, Athena 3D Automated Optical Inspection System, TWIN 3D Automated Optical Inspection System, TROI 8800 CI Series Conformal Coating Inspection System and Mercury Automated X-ray SMD Counter. Be sure to visit Booth #2314 during the IPC APEX EXPO.
Pemtron’s Saturn 3D Inline Solder Paste Inspection (SPI) System features Moiré technology, combining 2D color images with 3D measurement data. The result is more accurate and realistic 3D inspection images unlike conventional methods that display the solder paste through a color map only. With quad projection, 10/15 or 18um resolution a 4MP camera (optional 10MP) and three-stage conveyor (rail extensions optional), the Saturn is the most advanced 3D SPI system.
The Athena 3D Automated Optical Inspection (AOI) System uses 12-way projection for 3D measurements on all models to minimize errors due to shadow effects, and performs 100 percent of 2D & 3D inspection concurrently in all FOV areas. This significantly reduces false calls while providing near-perfect detection. The system offers 10/15 or 18um resolution, a 10MP camera (optional 12MP) and a three-stage conveyor.
Also on the AOI side, Pemtron will showcase the TWIN 3D AOI system for top/bottom double-sided simultaneous inspection. Pemtron’s new head type has been upgraded for 3D formation that is identical to the real image and is more stable.
Pemtron’s TROI 8800 CI Series Conformal Coating Inspection System with optional inline Coating Thickness Measure provides the most reliable conformal coating inspection. With simple programming, the machine can inspect defects like cracks, coating voids, wrong coating thickness (too-thin or too-thick).
The Mercury Automated X-ray SMD Counter provides real-time data with Artificial Intelligence. The system offers a reel capacity of up to four 7” reels or a single 13” reel, a scanner and label printer interface, real-time ERP reporting and annual stock through barcode monitoring.
