Agilent Technologies and Altron have announced that Altron, an electronic contract manufacturer, have selected the Agilent Medalist sj5000 Automated Optical Inspection (AOI) system to provide the flexibility needed to keep pace with changing AOI inspection needs.
Altron are replacing their optical inspection platform with the Agilent Medalist sj5000 on six fully automated Surface Mount Technology (SMT) lines, including one that operates offline.
According to Altron, Agilent's sj5000 is a high-end system that meets the changing technology requirements of electronics industry. The Agilent Medalist sj5000 provide pre- and post-reflow inspection capabilities. Developed to tackle complex and shrinking printed-circuit-board assemblies, the Agilent Medalist sj5000 can inspect the smallest 01005 components, with speed and resolution.
According to Agilent Technologies, the sj5000 optical inspection system is a well-balanced solution that provides better imaging inspection.
