X-Ray Inspection
We offer x-ray services for BGA component rework and other needs. Every circuit board we process for BGA rework is carefully inspected using Dage X-ray systems to ensure the BGA rework meets the highest quality levels. This system will pin point defects including solder joint shorts, opens, and voids. Fault finding is demanding so X-ray systems must provide, as a minimum, high resolution, high magnification and high contrast X-ray images.

We use a Dage Quadra 7 X-ray system. It is a user-friendly machine and provides highly detailed real-time x-ray images. The extensive greyscale definition and oblique angle views deliver the superb detail demanded for proper diagnosis.

Visual Inspection

Customer Comments
"Thanks for you and your recent work on my circuit board. When I slipped the board out of the box I was amazed at how meticulously it had been restored. And once the components were re-installed, it worked like a charm. I'll be recommending your services highly."
