Victron, Inc., an electronics manufacturing services (EMS) supplier of end-to-end manufacturing solutions to Fortune 500 companies, chose MIRTEC's system over all others because it best fit into the company's continuous strategy to help customers realize significant improvements in cycle time, asset utilization, reliability, flexibility and responsiveness. Marty Crow, Victron's Vice President of Manufacturing Operations, added, "We are excited to integrate MIRTEC's new, leading edge vision technology system, the MV-7U Automated AOI System, into our SMT lines. Investing in this inspection technology will complement our current manufacturing processes and keep pace with our strategic vision and technology roadmap.”
"The choice of MIRTEC's technology exceeded our operational expectations during our intensive engineering evaluations of the MV-7," said Sean Kim, Victron's Director of Engineering. "As our customers' volume and product mix continues to diversify and become increasingly complex, the advantages of improved accuracy and higher throughput become an absolute requirement."
"Over the last several months it appears that more and more EMS providers are beginning to reevaluate their current AOI equipment based on significant advancements within the electronics manufacturing industry," said Brian D'Amico, President of MIRTEC Corp. "Manufacturers have become ever more selective in purchasing new AOI technology that will add value to their business and provide them with a much needed competitive edge," continued D'Amico. "We at MIRTEC are extremely focused upon the ever-changing requirements of our valued customers. Our company invests heavily in Research and Development, persistently focused on using state-of-the-art optics, lighting and laser technology to develop the industry’s most technologically advanced inspection solutions. We are extremely pleased to welcome Victron, Inc. to our growing family of satisfied MIRTEC customers. We look forward to a long, prosperous relationship between our two organizations."
Mr. Crow concluded, "We look forward to maximizing the capabilities of our new AOI equipment from MIRTEC and building a long-term relationship with them as we continue to invest in new manufacturing technologies to support our customers’ requirements."
Fully configured, the MIRTEC MV-7U provides one top down view Five Mega Pixel camera, with a Precision 13.4 Micron Telecentric Compound Lens and four Five Mega Pixel Side-View Cameras. The patented "Quad Angle Lighting System" provides four independently programmable zones for optimal illumination of inspection areas.
The three-stage PCB conveyor and a PCB under board support system is designed to maximize throughput while offering the flexibility to handle a wide variety of PCB substrates.
The MV-7U also is configured with MIRTEC's exclusive Intelli-Scan Laser System. This system provides the "Third Dimension" in inspection capability ― the ability to precisely measure the Z-height of a given region of interest. This advanced technology offers superior lifted lead detection for gull wing devices, four-point height measurement capability for co-planarity testing of BGA and CSP devices, and enhanced solder paste measurement capability.
The system is powerful yet simple to use. A comprehensive Package Type Library provides simple "Drag and Drop" component programming. The Automatic Teaching Tool (ATT) software provides automatic teaching of component locations using CAD centroid data.
