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
