DEK HawkEye™ offers high speed solder paste inspection
HawkEye™ is a print verification solution aimed at operators, not just process engineers. It’s fast to set-up and easy to understand, delivering high speed paste-on-pad verification to highlight insufficient paste and prompt corrective action. Thinner stencils, finer pitches and variations in board quality are just some of the features that increase the opportunity for bridges to form. HawkEye’s capabilities can be extended even further with the launch of HawkEye Bridging. Driven by the next-generation Instinctiv™ V9 advanced machine user interface, HawkEye’s quick, easy set-up is complemented by bridge detection at the line-beat rate, ensuring maximum quality of delivery to downstream processes. Delivering comprehensive checking for bridging, this new tool ensures that defective prints are detected in real time.
NPM series offers high performance, zero loss changeovers
The NPM-W (Next Production Modular - Wide) is part of Panasonic's award-winning NPM platform for expanding and evolving electronics assembly needs. Additionally, the numerous available placement head combinations and supply methods make it a versatile addition to any SMT manufacturing line--regardless of board size. An intelligent fluxing unit allows for PoP components from both tape and tray while providing the necessary feeder inputs. Process technologies such as 3D sensing and chip thickness sensing are also possible. Progressive changeover, gang nozzle exchange and feeder anywhere allow for near zero loss changeovers.
