SAKI Corporation Receives NPI Award for its Saki Self-Programming Software Wins in the Test and Inspection-AOI category

Feb 09, 2019

Saki Corporation, an innovator in the field of automated optical and x-ray inspection and measurement equipment, announces that it has received a 2019 New Product Introduction (NPI) Award in the Test & Inspection--Automated Optical Inspection (AOI) category for its Saki Self-Programming Software. The NPI award, sponsored by Circuits Assembly and Printed Circuit Design and Fab, part of UP Media Group, recognizes a product's creativity and innovation, compatibility with existing technology, cost-effectiveness, expected reliability, flexibility, performance, and user-friendliness.

Saki Self-Programming (SSP) Software revolutionizes the electronic assembly process with the first software that programs AOI and solder paste inspection (SPI) in just a few minutes and clicks, instead of hours, without a golden board. Only Gerber and centroid CAD data are required. Programming is not dependent on the programmer's skill. SSP enables quick turnover, high-mix/low-volume production, and program standardization.

"Winning the NPI Award for Saki Self-Programming Software is an honor and a testament to the many people at Saki who contributed to this technology breakthrough," said Norihiro Koike, president of Saki Corporation. "SSP is one of the major steps toward seamless machine-to-machine communication and the Smart Factory. It eliminates programming variables, improving process quality and control. SSP saves considerable time, labor, and maintenance for a smooth and efficiently operating assembly process and relieves programming stress."

Recipients of the NPI Awards for electronics assembly equipment, materials, software, and PCB fabrication are selected by an independent panel of practicing industry engineers. The award was presented at the 2019 IPC APEX Expo, held January 28-31, in San Diego, CA.
 

Since its inception in 1994, Saki has led the way in the development of automated recognition through robotic vision technology. Saki's 3D automated solder paste, optical, and x-ray inspection systems (SPI, AOI, AXI) have been recognized to provide the stable platform and advanced data capture mechanisms necessary for true M2M communication, improving production, process efficiency, and product quality. Saki Corporation has headquarters in Tokyo, Japan, with offices, sales, and support centers around the world.
