Contax delivers four phoenix|x-ray systems
Contax has installed four phoenix|x-ray systems at different manufacturing sites in Scotland.
The new phoenix|x-ray systems are installed at Selex Sensors & Airborne Systems, Kelvinside Electronics Ltd and two further electronic manufacturing companies. Selex Sensor & Airborne Systems, has purchased the phoenix|x-ray nanome|x system to support the Captor Radar Tranche-2 Programmme for the Eurofighter Typhoon military aircraft. Two major units of the system are manufactured by Selex in Edinburgh. The printed electronic circuit assemblies within these units have a high population of BGAs, and the nanome|x is used to provide diagnostics in the event of any test failures. Another user, Glasgow-based contract electronics manufacturer, Kelvinside Electronics Limited (KEL), specialises in supplying the military, medical, oil and gas industries, all of which have very high quality standards. KEL has purchased the phoenix pcb|analyser to examine BGAs on circuit boards.
