Marantz Business Electronics' M22XDL-650 bench-top automatic optical inspection (AOI) system claims to present today's manufacturers with a breakthrough solution for handling large board sizes of up to 650 mm x 550 mm.

The M22XDL-650 supports comprehensive board inspection, including SMT components, reflow and wave solder joints, and solder paste. In addition, since larger boards typically feature multiple THT connectors, the new machine incorporates unique technologies specifically designed to optimise THT solder joint inspection.

With an inspection capability of 100 000 components per hour, the M22XDL-650 is powered by an Intel Pro Mac control system which equips it to deliver true 24-bit colour imaging. In addition, this product generation introduces an innovative lighting concept incorporating three pulse wave modulated LED light sources and up to six different lighting combinations. When combined with ease of programming and usability, the system significantly enhances operator control for highly reliable board inspection.

Featuring a bottom side clearance of 100 mm and a top side clearance of 40 mm, the M22XDL-650's versatility meets the challenges of odd form components. Since the system's high-speed digital video CCD camera moves in X and Y planes, the stationary PCB can be fixed in place for optimal support, avoiding warping and further enhancing inspection results.
