Profiling Robot optimizes AOI and batch X-ray inspection.

Designed to fit virtually any reflow oven, ProBot automatically verifies whether each PCB is processed to specification. Suspect PCBs then can be sent off to batch X-ray. Since neither X-ray nor AOI inspection can see molecular structure of solder joint, more complete quality inspection can be achieved when combined with ProBot, which can verify that solder joints have been processed within...
