Mek’s process control system, the Catch System can network multiple Mek AOI machines into a completely closed loop process monitoring and quality control system uniquely optimised for each user’s workflow and internal organization.
The Mek Catch Process Control System offers the special advantage of utilising an especially competitive open source SQL database capable of managing huge data quantity, multiple users and numerous machines. In addition to the SQL based network control center module, the Catch System comprises three additional modules which each manage a particular component of the workflow and connect to the physical and administrative layout of the factory: CS Repair for defect classification & repair, CS Watch for process monitoring and CS Analyzer for batch SPC and analysis.
Catch also includes the option to Connect to the Mek PowerSpector Solder Paste Inspection (SPI) system, allowing the user to determine if the solder joint defects can be directly linked back to solder print issues. By linking barcodes together the results can be compared.
