With its AOI partner system completing a successful tour of the UK and Europe, Blakell Europlacer Distribution is offering an Open Week with the ALeader i3D AOI machine on display and available for live demonstrations at the company’s Upton headquarters, on the outskirts of Poole in Dorset.

The ALeader ALD625 Pro platform claims unique i3D technology and is regarded as the fastest 3D AOI system on the market, as validated at major trade events including productronica last November and Southern Manufacturing in February. Core test cycle time for an A4-sized board, from board-in to board-out, is typically 15 seconds for a 100% test coverage, with false calls kept below two per 1000 devices tested.

“We want to encourage manufacturers looking to evaluate 3D AOI to come along to our smart demo premises in Poole, get their hands on a really fast machine, and bring along their own live boards to make it a rigorous and truly meaningful test. There’s no better way to authenticate the capability of any piece of production equipment and we’re confident that visitors will love what they see with the impressive ALD625 Pro,” says Blakell Europlacer Distribution’s UK General Sales Manager, Andy Jones. 

Opening for visitors on Monday 4th April, the week will be split into exclusive private slots for visitors to appraise the capabilities of the ALeader AOI and put it through its paces – ideally using their own production or prototype boards. Europlacer process engineers and product specialists will be on hand throughout the week to run demonstrations and answer questions.

To book an exclusive evaluation slot, interested parties should contact Andy Jones at the Blakell Europlacer Distribution office on 01202 266500.

While at the company’s premises visitors can review other products in the distribution arm’s portfolio of selected third-party products and platforms that complement the group’s own Speedprint and Europlacer equipment. Among this extensive range are solutions for First Article Inspection, HD manual inspection, X-ray inspection, board handling, flexible board support tooling, reflow and reflow profiling, plus Aegis manufacturing software.
