Saki Corporation, an innovator in the field of automated optical and X-ray inspection equipment, will be exhibiting at SMTConnect 2024 in Nuremberg, Germany from June 11-13. As a key highlight of the Selecs booth #235 in Hall 4, Saki will be showcasing its unique range of automated inspection solutions including the award-winning X-ray Automated Inspection System (AXI) and innovative ‘One Programming’ and AI Solutions Features.

The European market’s growing demand for Saki’s advanced total solutions for in-line automated inspection of SMT processes has reinforced the company’s dedication and strategic emphasis on the EMEA region. Saki’s most recent hardware and software will be on display at booth #4/235, demonstrating its capacity for high-precision, high-speed automated inspection.

With the support of its distributor Selecs GmbH, the Saki technology team will demonstrate the most recent equipment array for high-speed, high-precision AOI and AXI in-line inspection:

  • AXI

Saki’s latest 3Xi-M110 v3 machine is the industry’s fastest automated X-ray inspection solution and winner of a Global Technology Award 2023. It features Saki’s optimized Planar CT software, which was developed in-house for the industry’s fastest cycle times. With highly accurate void measurement and detection for both PCBs and components, this 3D-AXI machine delivers excellent quality assurance.

  • AOI

The 3Di-LS2 and 3Di-LS3 are powerful 3D-AOI models equipped with 12μm and 8μm camera heads, perfect for today’s SMT line manufacturing process requirements. They are designed to increase productivity, efficiency, and quality. Closed-loop technology, dual servo motor drive, high-resolution linear measurement, and sturdy gantry design ensure pinpoint precision and repeatability. Both AOI machines are equipped with Saki’s innovative Z-axis control head and side camera feature to demonstrate the Saki Total Inspection Line Solution concept’s versatility and flexibility.

  • SPI

The 3Si-LS2 SPI machine with 12μm camera head is designed to support large PCB sizes up to 500 mm x 510 mm. With unified hardware and software, machine operators enjoy a seamless transition between platforms, resulting in a superior experience that reduces costs and increases overall satisfaction.

In addition to its machine solutions, Saki will also present its versatile software suite which works with the equipment to form a total solution for quality inspection:

  • QD Analyzer, Saki’s powerful SPC system, a BF2-Monitor for offline reviews and a Multi Process View (MPV) demo station will present Saki’s software strength that greatly improves process troubleshooting and determines root causes. These innovations will help clients increase automation to solve labor & resourcing issues, tackle skills shortages, improve productivity and achieve greater manufacturing quality and efficiency.
  • Saki Link (reference exhibit) – Saki Link is a unique feature that enables real-time control and management of all Saki inspection systems (SPI, AOI, AXI) in the SMT line from one location, linking inspection results and providing predictive inspection coverage for the whole inspection process. With direct communication between related Saki inspection systems, handling complex inspection machinery and optimizing throughput across the SMT line is substantially simplified.
  • One Programming (reference exhibit) – Saki’s One Programming feature is the next step in implementing Saki’s unique “One Software & One Hardware” platform philosophy. One Programming allows for a one-step programming operation to generate and build inspection programs/recipes for subsequent inspection processes (SPI-AOI-AXI). This approach significantly reduces the time required to prepare inspection setups for new products and assures perfect inspection coverage.
  • AI Solutions (reference exhibit) – an introduction to Saki’s unique integration of AI functionality.

“We are excited to be returning to exhibit at SMTConnect again this year to showcase our innovative inspection technologies and solutions,” said Jarda Neuhauser, General Manager, Saki Europe. “The exhibition is an excellent platform for us to connect with industry professionals to demonstrate the benefits and power of our total inspection line solutions and introduce our latest innovations to the market. Our solutions are a result of years of research and development, and we’re confident they will continue to set the standard for precision and accuracy in our industry.”
