industry announced the release of DCollector, the first dynamic data collection tool that enables the efficient collection of defect data, while increasing its accuracy and quality. DCollector uses PCB�s CAD data in order to provide the PCB layout to the QC inspector on the computer screen, allowing an easy and fast identification of the faulty component on the board.
Despite the common use of automatic advanced technologies such as AOI, ICT, boundary scan and others, the process of Visual Manual Inspection (VMI) including the examination and correction of faults in production lines could not yet be replaced. Most factories that apply VMI processes today, lack proper supporting tools that can provide them with the correct defect data while simultaneously monitoring the productivity of inspectors. By using DCollector the inspector obtains the ability to easily locate faulty components on the computer screen. The DCollector locates the faulty component and highlights it for the inspector, which makes it easier for him to find the defect on the PCB and to correct it by soldering or replacing it. Following the correction the inspector can create a report about the action, which is then collected in a database. This allows tracing back faulty boards to inspectors who fail to identify or fix the defect.
�DCollector is a significant tool, which assists in procedures where the productivity of inspectors and the quality of their inspection is challenging and difficult to verify� says Jacob Rubin, the CEO of Proventus Technologies. �Trying to manually locate a faulty diode on a board containing hundreds of components is a very complicated procedure. The application of DCollector shortens inspection time and guarantees the accuracy of collected data. This enables managers to monitor the VMI quality as well as the productivity of inspectors.�
Companies that use VMI in their production lines will benefit from DCollector through the clear graphical representation of the inspected board and the easy-to-receive point and click data collection. Working with the DCollector improves data quality and integrity and leads to a faster inspection process in general.
