Emerging trends in printed circuit board assembly, in particular high power automotive electronics, present an increasing requirement for automated inspection of THT. Rework is increasingly forbidden, pressurizing selective and wave soldering yields, and making AOI the solution of choice.
Mek ( Marantz Electronics Ltd), has installed an iSpector AOI system within PKC Group in Finland. In association with Mek partner, SMT House, the manufacturer recently commissioned an iSpector HDL350 at its Raahe site in Finland.
PKC designs and manufactures electrical distribution systems, wire & cables, wiring components and electronics predominantly for the commercial vehicle, automotive and electronics industries. With 19,759 employees globally the Group’s net sales amounted to EUR 928.2 million in 2012. The Electronics division, headquartered in Raahe, offers flexible prototype and customised low volume, high mix production services.
