Rehm Thermal Systems, a supplier of soldering and drying systems with headquarters in Blaubeuren-Seissen, has installed an X-ray system for process verification in its applications centre.

Additionally, the X8011 PCB flex X-ray system from Viscom was deployed to further its own investigations into void-free and reliable lead-free soldered connections, especially under vacuum, in order to adapt the products to future customer requirements.

Helmut Öttl, head of applications and soldering technology product management at Rehm, commented: ‘We had already been using X-ray inspection systems from different suppliers. In our production, even the smallest air inclusions must be reliably detected. With its high detail accuracy and good contrast, the X8011 is ideally suited to do so. Simple operation and convenient handling in the everyday operations of the applications centre also are important because there is little time to obtain the optimum image, especially during customer visits. This was another big selling point of the X8011 from Viscom.’
