We are delighted to announce that BAE Systems have purchased an a3DI system for their Rochester facility.
The a3Di is an innovative 3-Dimensional laser metrology system designed and built in Great Britain by Amfax Limited. It accurately profiles a PCBA and all of its components to validate the completed assembly against the 3D CAD design model. The a3Di system is unaffected by component types, PCB color, lighting, height, position or board warpage ensuring accurate and repeatable measurement inspection results with near zero false calls.
BAE Systems plc is a British multinational defence, security, and aerospace company. It is the largest defence contractor in Europe and among the world's largest defence companies
This month we ran a seminar at the University of Bath in Somerset, UK highlighting the importance of inspection in the electronics production process. The event provided students with an overview and introduction to industry standards and then looked at the advantages and disadvantages of the different types of inspection equipment available on the market.
As part of the seminar we provided an introduction to the game-changing laser-based metrology used by our a3Di machine.
Dieter Swindley, Product Manager for a3DI commented: "The seminar was received extremely positively and we had a great turnout. Both the staff and students were very interested in a3Di and we had some great questions and feedback. Hopefully it enriched the students learning about the electronics industry."
Amfax's a3Di inspection system again attracted great interest at the recent Electronica exhibition. a3Di is a new patented concept in populated PCBA inspection, offering a cost effective, robust alternative to 2D and 3D AOI systems. The system uses a laser-based absolute measurement technology to profile components and solder joints in true 3D.
Business Development Manager, Shaun Mason, commented: "Interest in this technology is really intensifying as electronics manufacturers begin to realise how easy it is deploy and the benefits it can bring in terms of reduced inspection costs and improved product yield."
Amfax will once again be exhibiting its revolutionary 3D laser-metrology inspection system at this year's Electronica exhibition in Munich.
Dieter Swindley, Product Manager, explains: "We are delighted to be coming to Munich with our a3Di inspection system. We have had some great feedback from the units already out in the field for testing and from our recent exhibit at What's New In Electronics, so we are very much looking forward to showcasing the system at the World's foremost electronics exhibition."
Amfax will be exhibiting the a3Di at Electronica on stand 166 in Hall A3. The show is at Messe München from November 13-16th.
a3Di, a revolution in PCBA inspection, impresses at What's New in Electronics
Reduced inspection costs, improved product yield and ultimately zero defects. Sounds good?
At the recent What's New in Electronics exhibition, Amfax exhibited the the award winning a3Di inspection system which could potentially deliver you just that.
Since its launch last year, Amfax's 3D laser-metrology inspection system has been optimised after extensive testing in both high precision and high volume production environments.
Dieter Swindley, Product Manager, explains: "It was great to come to Birmingham with the newest iteration of our a3Di inspection system. Over the past year we have had several units in field testing with leading electronics manufacturers around the World. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive and has enabled us to fine-tune the system for even better efficiency and accuracy. Myself and the team really enjoyed demonstrating this exciting innovation at What's New in Electronics."
The Amfax a3Di PCBA metrology based inspection machine proved to be a big hit with customers visiting the Amfax stand at the recent Southern Manufacturing show held in the new conference centre venue in Farnborough.
Dieter Swindley of Amfax commented, "The busy Southern Manufacturing event this year allowed us to show visitors the performance advantages that the a3Di PCBA metrology system offers to businesses needing to improve the performance of their PCBA inspection facilities. We had a number of companies deciding to trial their PCBA boards on the machine at their facilities over the coming months"
Amfax a3Di set to impress the crowds at the Southern Manufacturing Exhibition 6th-8th February, Farnborough, UK
Amfax will be exhibiting at the Southern Manufacturing exhibition. Southern Manufacturing is a 3 day exhibition that takes place the 6th – 8th February 2018 at FIVE, Farnborough. It is the UK’s largest regional manufacturing technology, electronics and subcontracting exhibition.
The team at Amfax look forward to discussing your specific manufacturing and PCBA inspection requirements with you during this well attended event. Amfax will also be demonstrating the award winning Amfax a3Di PCBA inspection system which reduces your inspection costs and helps improve product yield when testing and inspecting your PCB Assemblies. Dieter, Steve and Rory from the Amfax a3Di team look forward to meeting up with you during the event. You will find them on stand B65.

Amfax a3Di scoops second Engineering Impact award in 8 months at NI's prestigious Engineering Impact Awards ceremony in London
The incredible Amfax a3Di PCBA inspection machine scoops its second award in 8 months. This time a3Di won a finalist award in the Advanced Manufacturing category at the National Instruments Engineering Impact Awards in London on the 27th November.
The award was presented to Peter Juracic, one of the lead software developers for a3Di by Robert Morton, NI's VP of Sales, EMEIA region. The a3Di machine was recognized for its contribution to improving quality standards in PCBA manufacturing and for creating a paradym shift of providing measurement accuracy to the traditionally inaccurate area of PCBA inspection.
Amfax have been providing our customers with world class test and inspection solutions for over 30 years .The Amfax a3Di product is the culmination of all our efforts to provide significant return on investment to our PCBA inspection customers
