Hidden joints, which by their nature have limited access, are the main driver for using automated x-ray inspection
Within this family you'll find breakthrough technologies for solder paste inspection, automated optical inspection, automated X-ray inspection
and in-circuit test, plus system software, common repair environments, process measurement tools, quality control tools and more; backed by Agilent's hallmark services, support and consulting.
The x6000 provides the level of unsurpassed defect coverage the market has come to expect of Agilent's 3-D Automated X-ray Inspection
, delivered via the breakthrough speed of the Medalist x6000," he added.
The results suggest that oval pads further expand the accuracy of automated x-ray inspection
, especially when used in combination with novel 3-D software.
Paul Groome, manager of Teradyne's AXI products group, said, "The beauty of our ClearVue lies in the increased quality, efficiency and simplicity it brings to automated X-Ray inspection

Electronics manufacturers are finding that they can no longer use a single method of test for PCAs and are increasingly combining ICT with automated optical inspection (AOI) and automated x-ray inspection
E[acute accent]-- Patented Off-Center Tomosynthesis technique delivers the industry's highest image resolution for 3D Automated X-Ray Inspection
(AXI), produces best-in-class lead-free defect exposure and enables simplistic in-line automation.
The two key technologies that have been adopted for the automated inspection of PCB assemblies are automated optical inspection (AOI) and automated x-ray inspection
In addition, Perth Airport has appointed Smiths Detection as its Preferred Equipment Supplier and ordered a number of Smiths Heimann 10080 EDtS automated X-ray inspection
systems to upgrade its international baggage handling system.
The acquisition is part of Agilent's plan to provide end-to-end "intelligent test" solutions to electronics and integrated circuit (IC) manufacturers requiring AOI, automated x-ray inspection
(AXI) and in-circuit test (ICT).
Agilent commands more than 34 percent of the $294 million global in-circuit test (ICT) market, 66 percent of the global automated x-ray inspection
(AXI) market, and more than 19 percent of the $244 million (excluding Japan) global imaging inspection market.
