Amphenol Invotec Implements AOI Solution from Orbotech

Reading time ( words)

UK PCB manufacturer Amphenol Invotec has implemented Orbotech’s Fusion 22XL automated optical inspection (AOI) solution.

Since implementation, the 22XL has increased the speed and cost effectiveness of its AOI process, enhanced throughput and at the same time, reduced the number of AOI machines in Amphenol Invotec’s UK PCB Manufacturing plant.

Accurately inspecting complex PCBs with special materials without sacrificing delivery schedules poses unique challenges. The Fusion 22XL has helped Amphenol Invotec to increase throughput and high-quality PCB yield while reducing its overall AOI operating costs.

Tim Tatton, general manager of Amphenol Invotec, commented:

“The Fusion 22XL solution will fundamentally improve our ability to support our rich product and technology mix, including high speed, RF and microwave materials. We look forward to increased yields for our complex PCBs, and we already know that we can count on Orbotech for technical excellence and great customer support.”

Fusion 22XL is Orbotech's innovative large format AOI solution that enables top quality inspection for larger panel sizes. Utilizing breakthrough Multi-Image Technology, Fusion inspects each panel with multiple light sources in one scan for unparalleled detection accuracy. Designed for HDI and MLB applications, Fusion 22XL re-defines PCB production efficiency, while achieving lower cost per scan.

Flex Time: Why is Rigid-Flex So Expensive?

07/11/2018 | Bob Burns, PRINTED CIRCUITS
One question that I hear fairly often, particularly after an initial quotation, is “Why is rigid-flex so expensive?” In this article, I’ll share with designers the cost drivers in rigid-flex relative to standard rigid boards and flex circuits with stiffeners. A typical rigid-flex PWB will cost about seven times the cost of the same design on a hard board, and two to three times an equivalent flex circuit with stiffeners.

‘Can Do’ in CAM Outsourcing: CAM Engineering—Reducing Costs

06/12/2018 | Mehul J. Davé, Entelechy Global, Inc.
While having on-demand capacity, improved automation, and fast turn-around are critical to any front-end engineering operation, achieving those goals with a cost-effective solution is imperative. Electronics are constantly under cost-reduction pressures. Functionality, capability, and complexity increase while costs decrease.

Process Control for HDI Fabrication

05/30/2018 | Happy Holden, I-Connect007
A subject that gets very little discussion but is essential to the HDI process is automation. That is, the control of chemical concentrations in our many PCB processes and, especially, those that have been mechanized and can change very rapidly. HDI is one of those series of processes where control is the key to high yields.
