Every EMS electronics assembly produced at August Electronics goes through a multitude of inspections.
It begins with the incoming raw material and continues with in-process inspections at all stages of production. It concludes with a rigorous final inspection of each and every assembly prior to shipping.
All of the operator stations in our circuit board assembly area are equipped with Leica microscopes to complete a full visual inspection of each printed circuit board assembly. Our real-time X-ray inspection system with variable angle viewing allows us to accurately inspect BGA placements and encapsulated assemblies.
We use both 3D Automated Optical Inspection system (AOI) and inline AOI on all 3 smt lines. The Automated Optical Inspection system is used to compare images of circuit board assemblies to that of a golden image, and logs any visual discrepancies that are investigated by an IPC certified inspector and reworked as required.
