Stencil Inspection System is designed for SMT assembly operations.

Press Release Summary:




StencilScan(TM) combines Windows based software with high-resolution, A3 size flatbed scanner. System inputs stencils, screens, silver or diazo film, mylar images, technical drawings, actual PCBs, or original hand-taped designs and automatically inspects stencils and screens for production errors, accuracy, size, stretch, damage, cleanliness, and blockage. Local Micro Alignment feature allows aperture error detection down to 0.0003 in. at 3,200 dpi on apertures as small as 0.002 in. dia.



Original Press Release:



Stencil Inspection System



Smart Sonic Corporation is pleased to announce StencilScan(TM), the first stencil and screen inspection system designed for SMT assembly.

StencilScan is a fully integrated, off-line inspection workstation using a PC Windows based software package integrated with a high-resolution, calibrated, A3 size flatbed scanner. This combination allows inspection of both stencils and screens for accuracy and blockage after cleaning or after fabrication, and the ability to inspect 100% for absence/presence and correct size of apertures, stencil damage, distortion and stretch. StencilScan then automatically steps the user through all discrepancies of the verification results.

With extreme flexibility, StencilScan inputs stencils, screens, silver or diazo film, mylar images, technical drawings, actual PCBs or original hand-taped designs. With these inputs and StencilScan's "check functions" the user is able to verify quality and accuracy of stencils, screens or Gerber files or supply production with required Gerber data. The LMA (Local Micro Alignment) feature allows aperture error detection down to 0.0003" (0.008mm) at 3200 dpi on apertures as small as 0.002" diameter (0.050 mm).

StencilScan improves print yields, quality and accuracy with 100% automatic inspection of stencils and screens for production errors, accuracy, size, stretch, damage, cleanliness and blockage. StencilScan also creates Gerber files and permits fast and accurate comparison of stencils and screens to bare PCBs.
