Report on the Worlds first metrology based 3D solder joint database for IPC class 1,2,& 3 solder joints now available
Amfax have recently successfully completed an 18 month Innovate UK grant funded investigation of IPC 610 solder joints using the Amfax a3Di system. This involved a number of high profile companies including Rolls Royce and the Manufacturing Technology Center (MTC). Amfax were the project lead and used the a3Di system to generate the Worlds first 3D database of SMT solder joints. This database was then used to tune the a3Di's solder joint algorithms to enable it to verify IPC610 class 1, 2 or 3 measurements. The investigation also included the generation of known bad solder joints for many different joint types. This was achieved by using techniques and experiments developed by the consortium members, including the manufacture by the members of 200 double-side PCBAs using both leaded and lead free solder.
A full report of the study's findings is now available and we will be happy to share the report with interested parties. Contact us today to receive your copy.
