SMT Assembly Services

Z-Axis, Phelps, NY, has launched a new product introduction (NPI) line for surface mount technology (SMT) printed circuit board (PCB) assembly at its contract design and electronics manufacturing center near Rochester, NY. The separate NPI line allows the company to run prototype jobs without impacting the schedule on its two SMT production lines. It can also be used for quick-turn production builds to accommodate last-minute requests from existing customers. The NPI line features two recently updated Mycronic MY9E pick-and-place machines and a Speedline MPM/SPM semi-automated stencil printer.

Machine Vision Camera

Omron, Hoffman Estates, IL, has launched a complete machine vision package that can be easily installed on PC-based systems. The new FJ2 cameras feature state-of-the-art complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) sensors, frame rates as fast as 282 frames per second (FPS), and resolutions ranging from 0.4 up to 5 MP in both monochrome and color versions. The camera’s GigE interface provides power and communication via a single Ethernet cable as well as an I/O port. This meets the challenges in situations when Power over Ethernet (PoE) isn’t an option or when additional I/O access is required. It allows up to 16 cameras to be connected to a single system.
