TOKYO — Saki Corp. has opened a new plant in Yamato Koriyama City, Nara Prefecture, to manufacture 3D automated X-ray inspection (AXI) equipment. Saki's expansion of production enables the company to respond more quickly to market needs, enhance collaborations, and achieve synergistic effects such as improved manufacturing quality, shorter delivery times, and lower costs. Equipment production at the plant will be transferred to the new facility.
AXI examines features of a printed circuit board, semiconductor package, or power module that are hidden from view, to find defects that might result in electrical failures of the products in which they're contained. This is especially critical for electronics used in the automotive, medical device, and aerospace industries.
Saki's manufacturing production in Nara will utilize the building and resources of DMG MORI Co., Ltd. and is almost twice as large as its current facility. The relocation enables Saki to triple its production of AXI systems and expands Saki's production bases in Japan to about 28,000 square feet.
