SMTnet's OnBoard Forum to Feature Eyal Duzy
May 7, 2001 8:00 AM EST to May 11, 2001 5:00 PM EST
Eyal Duzy is the Global Product Marketing Manger of Orbotech Assembly Division. Eyal holds a B.Sc. degree in Biophysical Chemistry and a combined MBA / M.Sc. degree majoring in Marketing, Entrepreneurship and Applied Chemistry. Prior to joining Orbotech, Eyal worked for Applied Materials Corporation, where he was responsible for product marketing of AOI and diagnostic tools for the semiconductors industry. Eyal has been granted two patents in the areas of AOI and test techniques.
3D imaging refers to the acquisition of images from multiple perspectives using, preferably, multiple sources of illumination. It enables the extraction of the 3D properties of each image element in order to enhance classification.
The benefits inherent in 3D AOI for electronics assembly lines are most pronounced at the post-solder inspection stage, which involves classifying solder joints and judging their quality, detecting lifted leads and reporting co-planarity. Doing all this at high-speed without compromising inspection performance is a tough challenge.
Manufacturers need in-line high-speed 3D imaging systems to meet today's and tomorrow's electronic assembly challenges. Eyal looks forward to leading a discussion regarding the benefits of using high speed in-line AOI with 3D imaging.
Simplification of Automated Optical Inspection Systems
Image processing technologies are being used for industrial applications more frequently than ever before. In general, these systems attempt to emulate an inspection function typically performed manually by people. This paper describes a generic methodology, where the base PCB provides feedback that uses the capacity of a computer to provide fault-free and consistent defect detection...
A clean environment is essential for modern industrial manufacturing. A cleanroom is designed to ensure that a product is not contaminated, without this assurance many products such as microcircuits, optical systems, pharmaceutical, and medical devices could not be manufactured. Written by an international group of authors, this book...
Bernie Matisoff has probably forgotten more about electronics manufacturing than I'll know. In his "Handbook Of Electronics Manufacturing Engineering" the things I don't like far out-weigh the things I like. The good things...
