microme|x - automatic X-ray inspection at its best.

12.10.2005


The new microme|x from phoenix|x-ray


On the occasion of Productronica 2005 phoenix|x-ray will be presenting a world premiere the new highly resolving X-ray inspections system microme|x.

A novelty to the industry phoenix|x-ray has developed a system that combines all features for an optimum comprehensive inspection of printed circuit board assemblies. The microme|x disposes of an extra large scanning area of 20" x 24", a highly precise manipulation unit with 360° rotation axis and the approved ovhm technology for oblique views up to 70° at constant magnification. The special value is the combination of these characteristics - for the first time the operator can now inspect large boards with mixed assemblies and acquire real-time oblique views under all angles (0-360°). A typical inspection task could be the analysis of the solder joint pad wetting quality of a centrally placed BGA.

Another outstanding characteristic of the microme|x is the board handling unit connection for fully automated loading of assembled boards in the production plant. In connection with the new inspection software XE² it is thus possible to perform a fully automated inspection and evaluation of BGA, CGA, QFP, THT and other solder joints. In this way multiple inspection tasks can be executed and repeated in an easy, reliable und time-saving manner. An interface for the CAD-data import allows using the original PCB layout in order to teach in the inspection routine. The inspection reports can be transferred to a rework station by means of the repair programme quality|review and thus badly soldered devices can easily be found and replaced or reworked. The SPC* module (*Statistical Process Control) allows the statistical evaluation of the inspection results and the process supervision.



The system possesses over an open microfocus tube with a non-toxic target and over a fully digital image chain with up to 4 Megapixels for a resolution < 1µ and highest image quality, best inspection results guaranteed also for lead-free solder joints.
Different security features, such as the anti-collision system and the low-dose|mode for radiation dose minimisation are dedicated for maximum safety of sensitive samples.

The microme|x has been engineered in accordance with ergonomic measures and the design follows the standards of modern industrial design. The system like all phoenix|x-ray systems comes in a radiation safe cabinet and ready-to-operate for instant use in production or laboratory.

The System will be displayed at Productronica 2005 - Hall A2, Stand 277

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...

Im Focus: How to inflate a hardened concrete shell with a weight of 80 t

At TU Wien, an alternative for resource intensive formwork for the construction of concrete domes was developed. It is now used in a test dome for the Austrian Federal Railways Infrastructure (ÖBB Infrastruktur).

Concrete shells are efficient structures, but not very resource efficient. The formwork for the construction of concrete domes alone requires a high amount of...

Im Focus: Bacterial Pac Man molecule snaps at sugar

Many pathogens use certain sugar compounds from their host to help conceal themselves against the immune system. Scientists at the University of Bonn have now, in cooperation with researchers at the University of York in the United Kingdom, analyzed the dynamics of a bacterial molecule that is involved in this process. They demonstrate that the protein grabs onto the sugar molecule with a Pac Man-like chewing motion and holds it until it can be used. Their results could help design therapeutics that could make the protein poorer at grabbing and holding and hence compromise the pathogen in the host. The study has now been published in “Biophysical Journal”.

The cells of the mouth, nose and intestinal mucosa produce large quantities of a chemical called sialic acid. Many bacteria possess a special transport system...

Im Focus: Repairing defects in fiber-reinforced plastics more efficiently

Fiber-reinforced plastics (FRP) are frequently used in the aeronautic and automobile industry. However, the repair of workpieces made of these composite materials is often less profitable than exchanging the part. In order to increase the lifetime of FRP parts and to make them more eco-efficient, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) and the Apodius GmbH want to combine a new measuring device for fiber layer orientation with an innovative laser-based repair process.

Defects in FRP pieces may be production or operation-related. Whether or not repair is cost-effective depends on the geometry of the defective area, the tools...
