6 sigma 3D inspection at Productronica and Apex

The team from Marantz Electronics (Mek) enjoyed a very successful Productronica exhibition in Munich, Germany this year. 44,000 visitors from 85 countries came to Munich, an increase of almost 20% over the previous event and the Marantz stand was overwhelmed by the positive feedback from visitors and distributors, all impressed by the company’s new AOI technologies. Productronica represented the European launch of Mek’s new flagship 3D AOI system ISO-Spector M1A, which will subsequently be rolled…

3D Measurement & 3D AOI

3D measurement is the latest development trend in assembled PCB inspection. It’s creating quite a stir and it does indeed offer many advantages in terms of improved accuracy & stability of inspection results. Having quantitative data gives much tighter control than “classic” AOI and is a big step forward in improving the quality assurance and process control of assembled PCBs. Unfortunately, the term ‘Full 3D’ is often used inaccurately. Full 3D implies that the height…

Meaningful SPI Production Control Through Automatic Normalization

Automated pre-placement solder paste inspection (SPI) has established itself in SMT assembly as an essential tool for optimizing the process and reducing end of line defects.  It’s been commonly accepted for many years that a majority of assembly defects can be traced back to print defects, and by using raw measurement data from printed PCBs for volume, area, height and offset, SPC histograms and control charts can quite readily be used to optimize the process.
