TORONTO, Ontario, 23 Jan. 2014. Officials at Candor Industries, a circuit board manufacturer in Toronto, have upgraded the company’s automated optical inspection (AOI) capabilities with the installation of the Camtek Orion PX System, which is engineering to meet high-end printed circuit board (PCB) inspection requirements.
Candor’s staff use the Orion PX to perform detailed mid-to-mass production AOI at throughput rates of up to 200 sides per hour. The system combines both scanning and verification processes into a single cycle and features fine-tuned motion control and precise detection ability.
The Orion PX System provides the following benefits, according to a company spokesperson:
Multi-zone detection, mixed units in the same panel and simple set-up for multi-lines/spaces provides high detection functionality.
Speeds processes by inspection and verification y of both sides of panel.
Improves registration detection and eliminate false alarms related to panel dimensional variation.
Combined optical, illumination and software components enhance the inspection performance with FLEX applications.
DSTF, Double Treated, White Teflon, Rogers, and other low contrast material detection.
“Our new system is 10 times faster than its predecessor with the capability of detecting 1.5 mil lines and space,” says Sunny Patel, QMR/technical sales manager for Candor. “With the implementation of the Orion PX System, Candor will be able to deliver quality multilayer boards with added complexity to our customers with ease.”
