Press release date: May 6, 2014

The AOI systems of the OptiCon family made by GOEPEL electronic extend their dimension with a revolutionary measurement technology and have evolved to become the "3D Series".

The first OptiCon Advanced Line 3D will be presented at the SMT/Hybrid/Packaging show.  The telecentric measuring procedure for three-dimensional detection of components and solder joints represents a significant technology leap in terms of area-wide height measurement. Known disadvantages of conventional 3D methods include such problems as shadowing caused by high components are with this technology now a thing of the past.

The sensor module called "3D EyeZ" is based on a Telecentric Multi Spot Array (TMSA), which measures the height of assemblies and solder joints by movable scanning. Due to the orthogonal and telecentric projection and viewing direction, error-free measuring is possible even in the gaps between the closest of components. In addition, this technology guarantees the independence of surface properties of components, solder joints and the PCB.

As well as the 2D inspection tasks of a standard AOI system, solder volume, wetting angle, height and coplanarity of components can still be measured by all systems of the OptiCon family.

Further outstanding features of 3D EyeZ are the freely selectable X/Y resolution as well as a maximum measurement speed of 70cm²/s. The integration is possible both in-line systems and in the well-known stand-alone AOI system the OptiCon Basic Line.
