Korean provider of inspection equipment, SEC has launched a new SMT CT inspection system called the X-eye 6300NTI In-Line 3D CT AXI. It features a pulsed X-ray with what the company calls a ‘Hybrid Open Tube‘. According to SEC, high quality images can be acquired in high-speed without image dragging using the new system. The company also said the device provides ultra-high-resolution images with oblique CT at 70 tilt, and added that high-speed 2D and 3DCT inspection are also possible with a 3.5 sec/FOV and 9.6 Mp detector with large FOV for 2D and 3DCT inspection.
Developed by SEC, the Hybrid Open Tube enables high magnification and defect detection in 50um, as well as lifetime of 5,000 hours with an open transmission type structure that is installed in the in-line AXI system.
The new system can be utilized for double-sided layered PCBs and packaging chips that use 3D Computed Tomography.
SEC operates a demo center at its headquarters in Korea and has agencies in Europe and China. Here, potential customers are able to operate X-ray equipment that can be used for each application and PCT equipment that can be used for the inspection of large products. In addition, products can be inspected according to specific conditions. Customers who have difficulty visiting the demo center are urged to send a product to the office so that SEC can inspect it and send back the results.
