Mirtec AOI Max Component Height | 23 April, 2008

Has anyone tried to increase the working height on their Mirtec AOI. We have several MV-2HTL machines and have a few boards that are over 2" tall. I'd rather not leave the parts out and have a secondary step to install them after inspection. I've got a few ideas but thought I'd inquire about workarounds from Mirtec users.

Did you ask Mirtec? When we were ready to buy a Mirtec they asked if we needed more than normal clearance height. I do not know if this would be retrofitable but maybe you could ask.

There is a field retrofit to increase the 25mm (0.98425") standard clearance up to 45mm (1.77165"), its not quite the 2", but close. You will have to recreate your component library though. For more details, contact Mirtec tech support at http://www.mirtecusa.com

I was needing to go over 1.77" for a few assemblies.

AOI stands for Automatic Optical Inspection doesn't it? I apologize for my ignorance on the original comment.

You can adjust to 45mm clearance, But I would recommend staying at 25mm if working with fine pitch and smaller passive components.
