Datest Acquires XD7600NT500 Ruby X-ray Inspection System from Nordson DAGE

Feb 28, 2012

The Nordson DAGE XD7600NT500 Ruby X-ray uses the latest technology image intensifier and proven feature recognition capability to provide the ultimate choice for the highest quality in X-ray imaging on the market today.

The Nordson DAGE XD7600NT500 Ruby X-ray uses the latest technology image intensifier and proven feature recognition capability to provide the ultimate choice for the highest quality in X-ray imaging on the market today.

Datest, a leading provider of advanced, efficient and quality in-circuit testing solutions, has invested in a XD7600NT500 Ruby X-ray Inspection System with X-Plane™ technology from Nordson DAGE.

The implementation of the XD7600NT500 Ruby X-ray will improve Datest’s troubleshooting, failure analysis and bonepile rehabilitation efforts. Additionally, the X-Plane™ technology will speed up the detection of defects that were previously undetectable with conventional X-ray technology without damaging the board.

Datest’s President Rob Boguski commented about the new system, “The acquisition of the Nordson DAGE Ruby X-ray Inspection System with X-Plane™ technology further augments Datest’s growing reputation as the premiere failure analysis and bonepile rehabilitation center for board-level products. The system significantly upgrades Datest’s power, precision, versatility and cost effectiveness in the troubleshooting field.

We are extremely pleased to have Datest select the Nordson DAGE System.  Datest represents the highest quality of PCBA test services and we look forward to working with them,” commented Hal Hendrickson, Sales Director - Global Accounts X-ray.

The Nordson DAGE XD7600NT500 Ruby X-ray is the ultimate inspection system with QuickView CT. The inspection system uses the latest technology image intensifier and proven feature recognition capability to provide the ultimate choice for the highest quality in X-ray imaging on the market today. 

Equipped with the unique Nordson DAGE NT maintenance-free, sealed transmissive X-ray tube, providing 0.5µm feature recognition and up to 10 W of power, together with the Hamamatsu 4" XY move/tilt image intensifier and digital camera, the XD7600NT500 Ruby is the clear choice for the greatest performance and highest magnification of real-time imaging.

With the revolutionary X-Plane™ option, the superior image quality that Nordson DAGE X-ray systems always provide can now be extended into separating individual layers at a level of excellence that the traditional laminography technique cannot achieve. X-Plane™ uses a proprietary, patent applied for, tomosynthesis, or CT technique to create 2-D X-ray slices in any plane of a printed circuit board assembly without the need to cut or destroy the board.
