New 3D AOI will allow ATI to improve quality and throughput

Assembly Technologies has recently invested in a Nordson ultra 3D AOI System. Board complexity and reduction in part size has led to an increase demand in Automated Optical Inspection. With advances in 3D imaging, catching defects has become easier and the number of false calls has reduced significantly. Nordson 3D AOI will allow ATI to cover the entire spectrum of defects. The primary advantage of 3D inspection over 2D inspection is that it provides true volumetric height information. Coplanarity on lifted leads and other height-sensitive devices can be detected without difficulty. Assembly technologies wants to provide the highest level of QA to its customers.
