Position of Pin Indicator Comparison

Position of the pin indicator should be the same from one device to another if they are from the same date and lot code. Devices from different date and lot codes sometimes have a different size pin indicator. When a device remarked, the original markings are removed with a sanding process that also will sand down the pin cavity. Once all devices are coated and remarked you can compare devices to see the top pin indicators have a different positions on the component. This is just one reason to let Global ETS perform an external visual inspection. With our state of the art High Definition Keyence Microscope locating anomalies is easier and pictures are clear.
