ViTrox Technologies, a solutions provider of innovative, advanced and cost-effective automated vision inspection systems and equipment for the semiconductor and electronics packaging industries, will participate in Etek’s Technology Event, scheduled to take place November 5-6, 2014 in Prestwick, Scotland. TAN Piet Gek, Sr. Engineer/Technical Support (PCA-AOI), will present “AOI PCBA Inspection.”
The presentation will discuss the benefits of AOI, including providing a much greater degree of repeatability and speed when compared to manual inspection. It is usually located immediately after the PCBA solder process. This helps to provide immediate feedback to the front line whenever there are problems including solder defects, whether the correct components are fitted and also whether their orientation is correct. This improves the output and quality of the product where problems can be rectified and resolved quickly at an earlier stage before too many PCBs are affected.
ViTrox offers both 2D and 3D AOI platforms. The V510 Optimus 3D AOI system is the next-generation solution for the SMT line. It offers powerful 2D+3D inspection capabilities. With the height measurement feature, the 3D AOI system has expanded its inspection coverage capabilities and is more reliable compared to conventional 2D systems.
Tan Piet Gek has been working at ViTrox for more than four years as Senior AOI Technical Engineer, focusing on technical queries and support as well as training. ViTrox works closely with its customers to design, develop and implement inspection solutions to the improve quality of their products and processes.
