DEK extends Instinctiv� V9 software capabilities with 2D Inspection control

Sep 16, 2008

DEK has unveiled its brand new 2D Inspection (2Di) V9 software tool, adding even more functionality to the next-generation Instinctiv� V9 advanced machine user interface. Delivering enhanced control of the mass imaging specialist's proven inspection system, 2Di V9 closely monitors the print process to raise productivity and reduce manufacturing costs.

2Di ensures optimal print quality by inspecting areas on boards or stencils to determine if the quality of print is deteriorating. This functionality allows operators to both identify when a stencil clean or paste dispense is required, and prevent potentially costly issues such as bridging, misalignment, stencil smear, stencil blockage and reduced paste volume. Backed by the enhanced process control of Instinctiv V9, 2Di now benefits from a whole host of functionality improvements including fast and simple set-up, on-board guidance, enhanced operator prompts and automated post-print inspection feedback highlighting sites requiring attention.

Prioritizing ease-of-use, the software's simple touch-screen control and visual reference of process conditions dramatically reduces the complexity of advanced platforms and applications. This means that 2Di users can enjoy enhanced visibility and control through a variety of innovative developments including the addition of a library of common control limits which can be adjusted on a graphical bar and easily edited to match precise process requirements. 2Di V9 also incorporates clear graphical representation of inspection data and a useful full page zoom function for comprehensive set-up and inspection views. The addition of a status page enhances operator visibility even further, delivering dynamic process monitoring by displaying results in real time during production.

�Supported by the next-generation Instinctiv architecture, 2Di V9 maximizes machine utilization, process control and operator efficiency in a wide range of manufacturing models,� explains DEK's Andy Davis. �Combining two powerful and proven DEK technologies, 2Di V9 means that inspection of the board and stencil is now easier and more accurate than ever. The next generation V9 hardware tool delivers faster set-up, easier error avoidance and recovery � reducing operator training requirements, eliminating costly downtime and enhancing control so that today's manufacturers � and their customers � can expect more into the future.�
