HITACHI Solder Paste Printers, Koh Young SPI Systems Interface #PCB #Circuits
Hitachi high-speed, high performance solder paste printers and Koh Young Technology’s 3D Solder Paste Inspection (SPI) systems can now “talk” to one another via Koh Young’s award-winning Closed Loop Interface process control software. The process control software brings the SPI system and the printer together via a closed-loop communications link to not only identify defects in solder paste printing, but correct them at the printer. This powerful process optimization tool, the first such system of its kind, prevents soldering defects downstream that result in excess rework, productivity delays, and lower yields. The new development was recently announced at the SMTAI 2012 show in Orlando, Florida, where, additionally, it was the recipient of a coveted Global Technology Award. “This new enabling interface is especially well suited to Hitachi’s HP-07 and HP-08 solder paste p...
