The Application of AOI in Solder Paste Printing Inspection

Wednesday, December 12th, 2018

After we have talked about PCB inspection in last article, so today we move to the solder paste printing inspection. If you would like to learn something about PCB inspection, please click The Application of AOI in PCB Inspection.

Solder paste printing, the very beginning of SMT, is the root of most defects on the PCB. The defects occur in printing process is up to 60%-70%. Thus, if the defects can be avoided in this link, then the damage is able to save cost minimized. Therefore, most of printed circuit board manufacturers have already equipped with AOI testing in SMT production lines.

There are various of printing defects, but they can be generally divided into insufficient or excessive solder paste, the solder paste in the middle part of large pads scraped etc.. The reason why these defects are formed including unreasonable setting of printing machine parameter, low accuracy, improper selection for scraper and so on. However, it is effective to monitor the solder paste printing by AOI technology and analyze the number as well as types of defects, so that enhance the capability of printing.

The Application of AOI in PCB Inspection

Monday, December 10th, 2018

AOI technology possesses the functions of PCB inspection, solder paste printing inspection, component inspection and assembly inspection after welding. In this article, we mainly talk about PCB inspection.

PCB Inspection

PCB inspection are mainly relied on the visual inspection combined with electrical inspection during the early PCB production. Best Technology, on the other hand, present many benefits of AOI testing to everyone. AOI testing is a popular choice due to the following features:

√ with the development of electronic technology, the wiring density of PCB is getting higher, which increases the difficulties in visual inspection.

√ Decrease the rate of mis-judgement.

√ Able to reduce harm to the health of inspector.

√ Save cost.

√ Avoid the electronic inspection technology can not inspect some defects.

In the process of printed circuit board manufacturing, there would be some defects on the substrate fabrication and copper clad. However, these defects are mainly produced after etching. By the way, AOI testing is usually used after etching and it is utilized to find out the missing or extra part on the rigid PCB.

Most defects can be found by AOI testing (excluding the missing inspection problem), but the main problem affecting its reliability is missing inspection. The dust produced in the processing of PCB could cause false warning, so the manual inspection must be carried out after using AOI testing to detect the defects.
