Profiling Robot optimizes AOI and batch X-ray inspection.

October 4, 2012

Designed to fit virtually any reflow oven, ProBot automatically verifies whether each PCB is processed to specification. Suspect PCBs then can be sent off to batch X-ray. Since neither X-ray nor AOI inspection can see molecular structure of solder joint, more complete quality inspection can be achieved when combined with ProBot, which can verify that solder joints have been processed within tolerances of both component and solder paste specs.

Pipe Inspection System comes with image analysis software.

July 25, 2012

ROVVER X(TM) pipe inspection crawler features ROVVER Measurement Suite (RMS), which lets operator measure pipe attributes directly from system's touchscreen control pendant. Using adjustable overlays, image-analysis software calculates flow level; pipe diameter, bend, and offset; as well as branch angle, clock position and diameter of service connections. All measurements can be stored in system's onboard WinCan-based inspection reporting database and offloaded to WinCan V8 software. Read More
