"We are pleased to provide Milara our award winning 3-D SPI inspection sensor for their TD2929 solder paste printer family. The integration of CyberOptics' SPI sensor head into the TD2929 achieves, for the first time, 100 percent 3-D solder paste inspection within a solder paste printer without slowing the cycle time of the print process. Coupling CyberOptics' proven measurement accuracy and speed with Milara's high speed, precision print process will ensure consistent, reliable prints," said Tim Skunes, Director of Technology and Business Development at CyberOptics.
CyberOptics' patented, on-the-fly 3-D inspection head is manufactured as an integrated assembly with no moving parts, thus requiring no calibration in the field. The system features telecentric optics for accurate X-Y measurement and robust board warp handling, and is calibrated in a factory clean room through the entire X-Y-Z measurement range.
"After years of seeking an AOI company for this option and the recent economic turn that claimed a few of them, it is a pleasure to be able to offer our clients this truly innovative technological inspection option that has proven itself stable and robust over the years," said Stephen Brodeur, Program Director at Milara Inc. "We are not a 3-D post print inspection company. We have our own flavor of texture based 2-D post print inspection and were constantly seeking an outside source to integrate a high speed / stable 3-D option that is capable of generating viable results even with the most minute process changes. CyberOptics combines not only accuracy but speed which in the realm of automation is most difficult to attain."
Milara's TD2929 is a fully automatic inline printer that offers new SimuTech™ Technology. The system incorporates a dual overhead camera gantry system with twin conveyors which allows for concurrent processing capability (print & inspect, bottom side clean & inspect, inspect & inspect, print & dot dispense, inspect & dot dispense). The dot dispensing option (first introduced in 2002) was combined to offer clients flexible solutions using cutting-edge Piezo dispensing technology and true high-speed operation. The system also features dual digital servo positioning loop for highest possible alignment accuracies, paste bead dispense while printing, linear servo motion technology and heavy-duty construction for extra stability in multifunction operation.
