Who makes low cost vision equipment...... and sells it at low price? | 30 September, 1998

I've been looking for a vision system which can check our fully mounted boards containing a mix of smt and thru hole. The concepts on all the machines are virtually the same, they got about 12-16 cameras, some pcb fixing and the rest is software. Some companies like Viscom and Orbitech have gone to the high extremes with thier designs and the price follows suit, around $290,000. Today I tested system called Opticheck from a company called M3 in Germany. It's just a simple scanner and some very intellegent software. This is only checking for placement errors and polarity errors, just what I need. Now comes the best part, the price : $45,000 for the inline model. Does anyone know this model or of anything similar?

Hi JVO, I just learned about a system from a company called CR technology... (there's still more I need to find out). But supposedly, they make a machine called the CRX2000 that is both a real-time xray and AOI machine all rolled into one. When you're not bombarding the board with xrays, you can then use it as a AOI machine...from what I seen on their web page, they're pretty darn reasonable too. There's a straight xray machine they sell called a CRX80 that is under 65K brand new....something you might wanna check out. My boss is asking me to find out as much as I can on it. Sounds pretty slick!!! -Steve Gregory-
