MIRTEC, “The Global Leader in Inspection Technology,” announces that ACD, a leading supplier to the electronics industry, purchased two Mv-7xi In-Line AOI Systems during the recent Productronica Trade Fair in Germany. ACD has very high inspection standards and the new MV-7xi AOI systems will help the company continue to meet or exceed those requirements.
“ACD has always strived to improve its quality and gain efficiencies. After comparing the top AOI manufacturers, we believe the MIRTEC AOI system to be the best choice to enable ACD to more efficiently and thoroughly inspect the final assembly. The feedback we receive then is used to improve yields on all future products, helping us to maintain our lead over the competition,” said W. Scott Fillebrown, President & CEO of ACD.
“In these challenging economic times, EMS companies are forced to maximize their production efficiency by implementing lean manufacturing initiatives and optimizing production processes,” said Brian D’Amico, President of MIRTEC Corp. “With this in mind, an increasing number of manufacturers are relying upon AOI equipment to help increase profitability by improving production yields and reducing costly rework. We are extremely pleased to welcome ACD to our growing family of satisfied MIRTEC customers. We look forward to a long, prosperous relationship between our two organizations.”
MIRTEC’s MV-7xi In-Line AOI machines are configured with the exclusive 10 Mega Pixel ISIS Vision System. This revolutionary optics system is comprised of a 10 Mega Pixel Top Down camera and a Precision 13.4 Micron Telecentric Compound Lens. The systems also are configured with four Ten Mega Pixel Side-View Cameras, a 2-D camera bar code reader, a high-throughput, three-stage PCB conveyor and a PCB under-board support system. MIRTEC’s patented “Quad Angle Lighting System” provides four independently programmable zones for optimal illumination of inspection areas. MIRTEC’s industry acclaimed Intelli-Scan Laser System provides superior lifted lead detection for gull wing devices, four-point height measurement capability for co-planarity testing of BGA and CSP devices, and enhanced solder paste measurement capability. The MV-7xi is powerful yet simple to use. A comprehensive Package Type Library provides simple “Drag and Drop” component programming. The Automatic Teaching Tool (ATT) software provides automatic teaching of component locations using CAD centroid data.
