SMT 3D Solder Paste Inspection Machine
The solder paste printing inspection process is one of the most important parts of the surface mount assembly process.
The earlier a defect is identified the less it will cost to correct – a useful rule to consider is that a fault identified after reflow will cost 10 times the amount to rework than that identified before reflow- a fault identified after the test will cost a further 10 times more to rework.
In order to ensure the desired amount of solder paste has been deposited without defects and that the process is repeatable it is important to have a thorough and reliable inspection method.
As components become smaller and more complex the control of the solder paste printing becomes more challenging and so it is recommended to fully inspect every printed PCB before starting the component placement process.
Many solder paste printing machines contain 2D solder inspection which has been used for a long time but has a limited inspection capability of area coverage and shorts – this system has no way of checking the expected solder paste volume or shape of solder deposits.
Our in-house solder paste inspection machine is equipped with the latest 3D technology that meets your requirement & supports your production.
