Who needs automated FAI?

Any company that assembles PCBs can gain real, bankable value from automated first article inspection. As one of the most critical steps in PCB assembly setup, FAI can stop a single small mistake from ruining an entire production run.

Extra Eye’s automated First Optical Inspection process is significantly more accurate and faster than manual inspection. With setup in minutes and easy operation, Extra-Eye FAI provides a cost-effective alternative to automatic optical inspection (AOI) for low-volume series.
