Lenthor Engineering Purchases Mirtec Inline AOI Component Inspection Equipment


Reading time ( words)

Lenthor Engineering, a California based designer, manufacturer and assembler of flex and rigid-flex printed circuit boards, announces the purchase of Mirtec’s MV-6 OMNI 3D AOI Series inline component inspection machine. The Mirtec MV-6 offers 15 mega pixel camera technology along with an advanced 8 phase color lighting system. 

“By providing this state-of-the-art component inspection technology, Lenthor Engineering can now offer our customers the assurance of 100% accuracy for solder joints, component polarity and placement,” says Matt Kan, Lenthor Engineering’s Assembly and EMS Director.  

The purchase of this equipment, matched with the recent addition of a CyberOptics SE500 Solder Paste Inspection AOI, continues Lenthor’s drive to provide its customers with the level of product assurance and compliance they demand from their top tear partners.

Solder Printing Process Inputs Impacting Distribution of Paste Volume

12/14/2017 | Marco Lajoie and Alain Breton, C-MAC Microelectronics
The volume of solder deposition, like any process, has variations that may be characterized by a statistical distribution curve, whether normal or non-normal. As complexity, density, cost and reliability requirements increase, there may be value in narrowing the distribution curve. It is common sense that less variation serves the interest of quality of the more complex and dense circuit boards.

Improving Solder Paste Printing

12/12/2017 | Stephen Las Marias, I-Connect007
Of the three elements involved in the solder paste printing process—stencil, solder paste, and printer—the stencil is considered one of the major factors affecting the transfer efficiency, accuracy, and consistency, of solder pastes into the pads, especially with the continuing trend towards miniaturization.

Equipment Matters in Solder Paste Printing

12/06/2017 | Stephen Las Marias, I-Connect007
The solder paste printing process has always been considered a major contributor to yield loss. According to many studies, solder paste printing accounts for up to 70% of all PCB assembly defects. For the December issue of SMT Magazine, we interviewed experts in the solder paste printing process to learn more about the key issues leading to this huge percentage of defects, and the technology developments that are addressing these challenges and improving yields in the process.
