AOI benchmarking for new lead-free finishes
Keywords NPL, Lead-free sodlering, Automated optical inspection, Benchmarking
With the new lead-free finishes, the surface finish has a different characteristic, it is generally a great deal duller and the AOI, automatic optical inspection, equipment manufacturers are frequently asked how their equipment will perform.
The National Physical Laboratory, NPL, are offering a project that will benchmark AOI equipment. They will build a lead-free board, with various lead-free finishes and test available equipment. They have experience from a recent similar project.
AOI suppliers are invited to sign up for this project. For more information please contact: Dr Chris Hunt. Tel: +44 (0) 20 8943 6065; Fax: +44 (0) 20 8614 0429; E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org; Web: http://www.npl.co.uk/npl/ei/index/html
