Saki Corporation and Fuji Connect to Improve PCB Manufacturing Productivity and Efficiency
Tokyo, Japan –31 March 2016 – Saki Corporation (SAKI), an innovator in the field of automated optical inspection equipment, proudly announces its participation in Fuji Machine Manufacturing’s “FUJI Smart Factory with Nexim” initiative. Saki’s inspection and measurement systems will connect with Fuji’s pick-and-place machines for a high productivity manufacturing process.
“SAKI is a leading company in the field of inspection solutions towards SMT (surface mount technology) lines,” said Shinsuke Suhara, Fuji Managing Executive Officer. “With SAKI’s innovative mind from its establishment, SAKI has built up a wide ranging portfolio from solder paste inspection (SPI), 2D and 3D automated optical inspection (AOI), to 3D automated X-ray inspection (AXI) systems, aiming to realize high productivity solutions for all customers. By Fuji standardizing the communication protocol between AOI machines and electronic component mounters, SAKI automated inspection machines can connect to Fuji’s Smart Factory with Nexim to create a production placing system that extends beyond the boundaries of corporations. This significantly contributes to the production of high quality products and high OEE (overall equipment efficiency) at user sites.”
“SAKI welcomes this cooperation with FUJI, a company we have worked with for many years,” said Yoshihiro Akiyama, SAKI Vice President. “By integrating FUJI’s pick-and-place equipment with SAKI’s inspection and measurement technologies, we can provide our customers with a highly efficient manufacturing process while minimizing cost.”
