Deep AOI Insight at Productronica

Press release date: October 23, 2013

At the upcoming productronica trade show, GOEPEL electronic will present two AOI system variants for double-sided inspection of both THT and SMD assemblies.

The award winning AOI system OptiCon THT-Line was designed for utilization in wave solder processes, now featuring different inspection modules for THT components and THT solder joints. The inspection can be executed at the upper conveyer belt as well as during the PCB return in the lower system area, which enables flexible system integration at any position within a production line.

The AOI system OptiCon TurboLine, widely utilized in SMD processes, is now equipped with an add-on camera module for PCB bottom side inspection, i.e. it can be applied for the inspection of pin-in-paste (THR) solder joints together with top side inspection in one system.

Both system variants help to omit assembly flipping or utilization of two separate AOI systems, which leads to cost savings and reduction of required space for the entire production line.

At productronica stand A1.239, the systems will be presented as special editions with transparent enclosures enabling for deep insight into the technical implementation of these innovative solutions.
