March 24, 2014 - Replacing error-prone manual scanning with automated inline reading, PanelScan™ PCB Traceability System captures 1D and 2D barcode data from multi-array PCBs at front-end or mid-stream on any SMT line. Barcodes can be read along entire length and width of any PCB array, and UI lets line operators train and recall jobs to ensure production is constantly running. Range of imagers are available to read information-dense 2D barcode formats marked directly on electronic components.

Press release date: February 25, 2014

RENTON, WA — Microscan, a global technology leader in barcode traceability solutions for the electronics industry, announces it will showcase its PanelScan™ PCB Traceability System in Booth #838 at the upcoming IPC APEX electronics conference and exhibition, scheduled to take place March 25-27, 2014 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV. PanelScan™ is a user-friendly and easily integrated machine vision solution for capturing 1D and 2D barcode data from multi-array PCBs at the front-end or mid-stream on any SMT line. Microscan will actively demonstrate this integrated system and how it replaces error-prone manual scanning with automated inline reading that keeps production lines moving.

Today’s electronics manufacturers rely on barcode traceability technology to ensure accurate board assembly and assure quality. Microscan’s new PanelScan™ system is uniquely designed to read barcodes on the entire length and width of any PCB array, with an intuitive user interface that allows line operators to quickly train and recall jobs to ensure production is always running.

Microscan also offers a range of imagers designed to read information-dense 2D barcode formats, such as Data Matrix, marked directly on circuit boards, capacitors, photovoltaics, and other electronic components. Direct part marking plus a robust barcode reading system enables manufacturers to achieve part traceability throughout the supply chain. Barcode technology can also confirm that the correct part is added to an assembly, and trigger line changeovers.

Microscan’s line of barcode, machine vision and lighting products is backed by one of the world’s most robust patent portfolios and years of proven performance in the electronics industry. From basic barcode reading to complex machine vision inspection, identification and measurement, Microscan remains committed to continuous innovation and development to meet electronics market and customer needs for quality product solutions to track, trace and control applications.
