Gen3 Systems to Bring Industry-Leading Electronic Test and Production Equipment to Southern Manufacturing

Jan 30, 2014

 MEK PowerSpector 350 Optilia W30x

Optilia W30x

Gen3 Systems Limited, a specialist British manufacturer and distributor today announced that it will exhibit at Southern Manufacturing 2014 on stand K38.  Southern Manufacturing is scheduled to take place on February 12-13, 2014 at FIVE in Farnborough, Hampshire.  Gen3 will present both manufactured and distributed products to include MEK’s PowerSpector 350 FDAz, Gensonic Stencil Cleaning System, Z-Check 3D, Optilia’s W30x Inspection Camera System and Delta T Software.

The MEK PowerSpector 350 desktop AOI is designed for maximum defect coverage whilst maintaining short programming times. With its totally newly developed mechanical platform, it is the only desktop AOI in the market that can be equipped with nine cameras: one top and eight side cameras. MEK has over 5000 machines in use worldwide; the 24-bit imaging technology is driving powerful process control and maximum production yield for MEK electronics assembly and microelectronics customers everywhere.

The Gensonic Stencil Cleaning System, awarded the European Product of the Year at Productronica 2013, is a manually operated ultrasonic transducer unit for cleaning stencil apertures.  The Gensonic can be used either in conjunction with our Stencil Cleaning Centres or portable enough to be taken directly to the printer thereby greatly reducing production downtime and printer resetting.

The Optilia W30x High Magnification Full HD Inspection Camera, launched early Summer of last year, features a powerful 30x optical zoom range and a significant gain in magnification (up to 200x on a 24ʺ monitor). W30x-HD is ideal for tasks needing closer examination. Users familiar with the current products will appreciate that Optilia's leading full HD image quality and responsive auto-focussing has not been compromised in achieving this step up in zoom range. The development of W30-HD is proof of Optilia’s commitment to utilise the best technology available and continue to offer its customers the widest range of solutions of their kind.

Delta T is Gen3 Systems’ replacement for the Concoat system, Soldapro. Delta T’s Wizard Thermal Profiling comprises a 5-channel temperature logger and user-friendly software, providing the simplest and most basic data to the most comprehensive SPC demands. It can be used to accurately and rapidly determine the oven or wavesoldering bath temperature settings required to optimise the soldering profile of any PCB assembly. This can dramatically improve both process quality and end product reliability in the field. 

Gen3, who were appointed the Global Distributors rights for Aprotec Instrumentation in January of last year, will once again display the Z-Check 3D Solder Past Inspection System in which has a highly accurate, motor driven dual axis positioning stage. The large scanning area allows the PCB to remain static whilst multiple measurements are made and recorded, thus greatly enhancing the ability to accurately repeat the measurement of selected pads. Solder paste Inspection is available at an affordable price. 

Graham Naisbitt, CEO of Gen3 Systems, stated, “Southern Manufacturing has risen to become the most successful UK Tradeshow.  We are always excited at the opportunity of showcasing our equipment to the country’s most diverse group of customers in which are involved in embedded electronics and other diverse industries. ” 

Also available in Gen3’s manufactured product line is the Contamination Systems, also known as the CM Series, Dip and Spray Coating Systems, MUST3 Solderability Tester, SIR and CAF Testing Systems. Distributes products for ACE, Finetech, DIMA Technologies, Vacunest, Stoelting and MBTech.
