Omron Automation Americas will introduce two new automated optical inspection (AOI) systems at IPC Apex 2023 in San Diego – the VT-Z600 and VT-S1040. The event takes place from January 21 to 26, 2023.
The VT-Z600 is Omron’s fastest pre/post reflow AOI system. It features multi-direction and multi-colour (MDMC) illumination to achieve a new level of stable and flexible inspection.
The VT-S1040 is also intended for pre/post reflow inspection. It too features MDMC illumination. In addition, it includes AI-assisted, micro phase shift (MPS) 3D reconstruction, which further improves defect detection and first-pass yields while reducing false calls.
Both systems incorporate Omron hardware. They are designed to have a long operational life in demanding manufacturing environments and can be field upgradable in the future, according to the company.
“IPC Apex Expo is a great venue for answering technical and process questions and showing new systems like the VT-Z600 and VT-S1040,” says Brad Ward, technical manager for advanced sensing and inspection solutions at Omron. “It’s a low pressure environment that allows customers to fulfill a key stage of their crucial technology evaluation.”
Omron will also showcase its VT-X750 inline CT X-ray inspection system at the event. The VT-X750 CT AXI is a 3D system and a suitable for critical SMT, THT and press-fit device inspection across all industries. Its imaging technology identifies the widest array of BGA solder joint quality and reliability issues, including voids and difficult-to-image hidden-in-pillow (HiP) defects.
The Omron team will also answer questions about the company’s Q-upNavi software suite that allows machine-to-machine (M2M) communications between SPI, AOI and AXI systems.
