DYCONEX Introduces Automated Final Inspections


Reading time ( words)

DYCONEX AG, an MST company, now offers customers automated final inspections to further optimize testing of their printed circuit boards.

Thorough and readily reproducible testing of printed circuit boards is the goal of the automated final inspection newly introduced by DYCONEX. This gives companies the option of having their products tested by a scanner system – swiftly and with constant comparability and repeat accuracy, in a process that supplements final inspection by qualified DYCONEX employees.

Automated final inspection is ideal for high production volumes, complex and highly repetitive printed circuit board structures and products with the highest reliability requirements, such as life-supporting medical technology.

Thanks to the semi-transparent materials that DYCONEX uses, automated inspection provides insight into a printed circuit board’s inner layer. On the one hand, the inspection process grows more complex because several layers of CAD data must be read in and combined. On the other hand, checking more than just the top layer of the product means greater confidence for customers and their regulators.

“Due to the high demands of our complex PCB technology, a lot of benchmarking was necessary for introducing the new system,” explains Daniel Luchsinger, measurement technology and automation engineer at DYCONEX. “After a multi-step qualification and testing process, we decided on a Taiyo Industrial machine. Both the results and our teamwork with the machine’s manufacturer are proving highly satisfactory.”
