STI acquires new AOI system from Nordson YESTECH
STI Electronics, Inc., a full service organization providing training services, training materials, analytical/failure analysis, prototyping, and small-to-medium volume contract PCB assembly, is pleased to announce that it has acquired a new Nordson YESTECH FX-940 ULTRA 3D Automated Optical Inspection (AOI) system.
This new AOI system provides STI’s contract assembly services with a significant improvement in throughput with the ability to inspect 1.5 million components per hour. The system’s accuracy rate will give customers a level of confidence far exceeding that of visual inspection or other AOI systems using older technology.
The new image processing integrates 3D inspection, color inspection, normalized correlation and rule-based algorithms. Coupled with advanced LED lighting, it provides complete inspection coverage with an unmatched low false failure rate.
Mark McMeen, STI’s Vice President of Engineering Services, explains: “The majority of STI’s customers require high reliability for their products. This new system will help STI provide its customers with the manufacturing quality they desire and the built-in SPC will help STI maintain tight control of our processes.”
