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… Read the full article…
We are busy preparing for the forthcoming Productronica show in Munich where we’ll be launching a whole host of new AOI & SPI systems across a very wide range of applications and budgets. The Mek team will be on hand at Hall A2 stand 402 to host demonstrations of unique capability.
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… Read the full article…
Mek (Marantz Electronics), has announced the launch of GTAz, its newest and most advanced optical head available on the company’s PowerSpector and SpectorBOX range of AOI machines.
Mek ISO-Spector is an AOI system of ‘true measurement’ for the full across the board inspection of components and solder joints.
The latest generation iSpector desktop AOI from Mek (Marantz Electronics) is designed as an entry-level system for customers with low volume, high mix production requiring high-quality AOI with a low price tag.
Recent new additions to our ground breaking SpectorBOX AOI system include a massive 5 inch camera clearance that enables complete single pass inspection of virtually any assembly.
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.
AOI/SPI designer and manufacturer Mek (Marantz Electronics) recently completed a User Group Seminar in Centurion, Pretoria for a receptive group of electronics manufacturers from the region.
We’ve recently installed a fourth Mek AOI system at Projects Concern Manufacturing. The Johannesburg based EMS provider commissioned an iSpector HDL with Mek statistical control software including CS Center, Repair and Analyser. The system complements their existing 3 Mek systems.
