PNC Inc. Augments Assembly Capability with CyberOptics Solder Paste Inspection

Reading time ( words)

PNC Inc. recently purchased an SE500-II solder paste inspection machine from CyberOptics.

In addition to other recent purchases, this machine completes another fully-equipped, top-of-the-line assembly line for the company.

The SE500-II can scan 30% faster than its predecessors thanks to its unique all-in-one scan sequence. This allows it to inspect PC boards at a rate faster than 80 cm2/second. Adding to its efficiency is the streamlined and intuitive V5 series software. The multi-touch interface allows the operator to access any number of the various essential applications in seconds.

The SE500-II’s paste height range is 2−20 mils. The parameters it can measure include height, area, volume and registration. There are also other useful features such as bridge detection and defect review. It can accept boards from 2 x 2 in. to 20 x 20 in. and from 0.3 to 5.0 mm in thickness.

“This machine fulfills a request we had received a few times from our customers,” President Sam Sangani explained. “It helps us have even better quality specifications and build boards exactly to the specifications of our customers.”

EIPC’s Winter Conference in Lyon, France: Day 2 Review

02/20/2018 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
The first day of the conference had started and ended in the dark—a long and technically intense day! After a convivial conference dinner and a good night’s sleep we were back on the bus, this time in daylight at the slightly later time of 8:00 a.m., for the journey from downtown Lyon back to Alstom’s conference facility in Villeurbanne, and it wasn’t raining. In fact, there was even some sunshine later in the day!
