Libra Industries, a privately held electronics manufacturing services (EMS) provider, today announced that is has completed the installation of its new Omron CDK VP5200-V Solder Paste Inspection system. The system was installed at the Libra Industries’ Mentor facility and the company plans to install a second system at its Dallas facility in the near future.
Libra Industries now benefits from high-speed inspection with an industry-leading speed of 9,400mm2/sec. The VP-V series is specially designed to achieve a higher speed of inspection to meet the needs of high-speed production lines, such as Libra Industries’.
The VP5200-V uses the company's patented, proven Color Highlight system which delivers superior solder joint illumination by providing 3D information from a 2D image. This Color Highlight system utilizes RGB LEDs in a dome configuration which ensures consistent inspection regardless of component 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.
With inline detection, mounting faults at the initial stage, which make up 70 percent of the total, can be detected early on. The VP5200-V provides Libra Industries with high accuracy and repeatability to support the inspection of ultra-fine Pads. The system’s repeatability of height inspection is within 1µm at 3σ (height standard jig), and the repeatability of volume inspection is within two percent at 3σ (CKD's sample PCB).
Libra Industries continues to invest to provide customized manufacturing solutions to help make its customers more competitive and improve their profitability. For more information, visit www.libraind.com.
