VT-X Series X-ray inspection shortens the tact time for in-line, post-solder inspection of printed circuit boards (PCBs). The dual-mode X-ray inspection system combines computed tomography (CT) scanning with high-speed tomosynthesis scanning to achieve production line speeds. Use of CT technology eliminates the clutter from bottom side parts while topside parts are inspected. Because CT scanning technology alone can be quite slow such that inspections must be done off-line or handled slowly in-line, this solution enables use of both technologies in the same inspection. The system shortens inspection time by allowing the optimum mix of CT scanning for areas where components may be shadowed by bottom side components and fast tomosynthesis for inspections where bottom side components are not present.
