Brussels, Belgium (PRWEB) October 09, 2013
Orbotech S.A., the European subsidiary of Orbotech Ltd., a leading global provider of yield-enhancing and production solutions for printed circuit boards (PCBs) and IC substrates, today announced that CSI Sud-Ouest, a Groupe Cimulec company, has invested in a Fusion™ 22 automated optical inspection (AOI) system for use in its printed circuit board production facility in Toulouse, France.
CSI Sud-Ouest is the first French customer of Orbotech in possession of the aeronautical certification EN 9100 to purchase a Fusion AOI system.
“Several factors have influenced our decision to increase the efficiency of our operation through the acquisition of more advanced AOI capabilities. This includes new materials with lower contrast and higher density boards that need more specialized treatment, while achieving maximum elimination of false alarms and a more functional user interface,” said Mr. Eric de Ponthaud, General Manager of CSI Sud-Ouest. “The Orbotech Fusion system has enabled us to significantly reduce the level of scrapped panels and improve our inspection process overall.”
“Bringing greater efficiency to the PCB inspection cycle is a hallmark of our Fusion AOI platform,” said Hadar Himmelman, President of Orbotech West. “We are pleased to be able to deliver to CSI Sud-Ouest the advanced defect detection and throughput capabilities needed to meet their evolving production requirements.”
