Omron Inspection Systems (www.omron247.com) will display and demo its latest concepts and enhancements in AOI systems at SMTA International, being held at the Walt Disney World Dolphin in Orlando, Florida, on October 16-17, 2012. Visit Omron at booth #631 to get an in-depth demonstration from Omron’s experts on the VT-RNSII Inline and Bench Top Post-Reflow Inspection Systems, and the VP5200V Inline 3D Solder Paste Inspection System.

VT-RNSII: Cost-Effective AOI Platform for Inline and Bench Top

Omron enhanced the VT-RNSII Inline Post-Reflow Inspection System and VT-RNSII-ptH Bench Top model with faster shutter speeds and improved image processing to perform inspections 20 percent faster than the original VT-RNS series. This combination allows faster throughput and more detailed inspections of densely populated boards within the same cycle time. Both VT-RNSII models use Omron’s patented, proven Color Highlight system which delivers superior solder joint illumination by providing 3-dimensional information from a 2-dimensional image. This Color Highlight system utilizes RGB LED’s in a dome configuration which ensures consistent inspection regardless of component placement angles. The 3-CCD camera used in the system enhances solder shape recognition accuracy by obtaining three times the information of a conventional 1-CCD camera. 

The VT-RNSII offers high resolution of up to 10 microns that supports inspection of components as small as 01005 and 12 mil pitch. Optical Character Verification capability is standard. Omron’s EzTS program generation software makes it easy for anyone to create and implement initial programs tailored to the PCB in just a few minutes. The flexible VT-RNSII machine platform also includes models for paste inspection and pre-reflow component placement inspection.

VP5200V: High-Speed 3D SPI Platform

The VP5200V Inline, High-Speed 3D Solder Paste Inspection System completes inspection cycles two times faster than conventional models, using the highly accurate phase shift method to measure height. Simplified programming enables program generation times of less than 10 minutes, and one-touch operation through touch panel control improves operator efficiency. The VP5200V offers high accuracy and repeatability for height inspection (within 1 micron) and volume inspection (within 3 percent). Available models offer horizontal resolution of 15 microns or 25 microns.


Omron Inspection Systems leads the AOI market with the fastest production speeds, 3D imaging, and patented technology providing increased productivity and high-quality inspection capability. Omron introduced an inline X-ray inspection system with the industry’s fastest and most accurate inspection capability utilizing CT technology. Omron’s comprehensive line of AOI-X-ray inspection equipment, from bench top to inline systems, provides a total SMT solution fully compatible with Omron’s Qup-Navi Software suite for true root-cause defect analysis and total SMT quality improvement. Headquartered in Kyoto, Japan, OMRON Corporation is a multi-billion-dollar, diversified company with business units producing industrial automation products, electronic components, healthcare equipment and ticketing systems. The Pan-American headquarters is located in Schaumburg, Illinois, USA.
