The incredible Amfax a3Di PCBA inspection machine scoops its second award in 8 months. This time a3Di won a finalist award in the Advanced Manufacturing category at the National Instruments Engineering Impact Awards in London on the 27th November.
The award was presented to Peter Juracic, one of the lead software developers for a3Di by Robert Morton, NI's VP of Sales, EMEIA region.
The Amfax a3Di team were out in force at Productronica this year in Munich. The system took centre stage on the Systech Europe booth. We would like to thank all of the attendees who spent time with us to get to know the business benefits that taking real 3D measurements of components and solder joints can deliver.
Alan Smith, Managing Director of Amfax and Mike Smith, product manager for a3Di are seen with the a3Di machine that caused a great deal of excitement at the show.
Mike commented "It is great to see that companies are now realising the incredible business benefits that a3Di brings to the PCBA inspection market. The new software tools we have introduced at Productonica this year for fast programming and autotuning of boards along with the incredible new board debug capabilities keep a3Di well ahead of any other PCBA inspection machine currently available"
Rory is shown explaining the benefits of the new board debugging software to an interested visitor at the show, For those who watch Robot Wars on TV, you may recognise Rory as he was participating on last weeks episode with his own robot team. Building robots is Rory's other passion when he is not developing new software as part of the a3Di team at Amfax.
Alan and his wife Nickii took part in their first ever Skydive recently all in aid of the Macmillan Cancer Support charity. They raised over £1,500 for the charity which is one of Amfax's nominated charities. They both enjoyed the experience, but only one has said that they would do it again!
