SAET was set up in 1990 as an electronics systems, hardware and software design company. Bringing together highly specialized experts with many years of experience gained in the automotive and industrial automation sector, in just a short time the business began to focus on custom microcontroller and microprocessor systems.
Following SMT and PTH assembly, all the boards undergo automated optical inspection in order to prevent and identify any assembly or soldering defects. This test is carried out using a state-of-the-art Omron RNS-pt.Our inspection system guarantees the utmost reliability in all the boards assembled. Thanks to techniques for acquiring special images and processing them using a very special wide-spectrum lighting system, we obtain practically complete coverage of soldering joint and component positioning defects. The operating principle is based on the acquisition of images detected by a high definition camera, combined with a ring lighting system which emits a flash sequence with different wavelengths. The images are then compared with those stored in the library, and if this comparison highlights any possible defects a specialist operator analyzes the signal, and if necessary remedies or flags up the problem. One hundred per cent of our production undergoes this test.
The test programs are developed by our own highly specialized engineers trained by the world leader in this type of test.
Our functional testing solutions (ATE) are general purpose, as they are capable of testing different types of board and electronic device with minimal investment.
