Zero Defects International Introduces Taiyo PCB Inspection System

Reading time ( words)

Zero Defects International [ZDI] has been appointed by Taiyo Industrial Company, Japan, to manage the North American introduction of it's automated printed circuit board final inspection systems. These inspection systems have enjoyed widespread success in Europe and in Asia and are now being introduced to the United States and Canada.

Prior to beginning this assignment, ZDI contacted a range of PCB manufacturers in order to determine if there would be a perceived need for such equipment. The consensus was that the product is one that will perform a valuable function and, at the same time, provide a very acceptable ROI.

Recent initial trials in the US have shown that the machine was able to find defects that passed regular visual inspection but should have been flagged as not meeting the end customer's specification. Detection capabilities include: exposed copper, solder mask on pads, scratches, foreign material, blocked holes and chipped plating. Learn more about the TY-Vision line here.
