Industrial Vision Systems (IVS®) www.industrialvision.co.uk have designed and built a manual load PCB AOI system designed for low batch production of PCB assembly products. The vision system inspects the entire PCB in under 2 seconds including the miniature surface mount components within 170 regions. The machine vision technology deployed is based on the automated AOI systems provided by IVS.
The vision system HMI provides detailed analysis of the PCB inspected. Failed areas are shown highlighted in red for immediate feedback to the operator of missing and damaged components. In addition to the PCB inspection the vision system also checks for pin damage and surface inspection of the component top. Finally the system also confirms the lid has been applied correctly to the product. The vision system also reads the datamatrix code and saves all images to the factory information system, allowing image archiving against serial number in case of warranty claims. The machine provides a complete final inspection of the product prior to shipping to the customer.
The vision inspection machine provides the manufacturer with a guaranteed 100% quality leaving the factory protecting against later warranty claims and brand protection.
