MIRTEC AOI machine wins industry award

16 May 2012 Manufacturing / Production Technology, Hardware & Services

MIRTEC has been awarded a 2012 EM Asia Innovation Award in the category of Test & Measurement/Inspection Systems – AOI for its MV-9 2D/3D In-Line AOI series. The award was presented to the company at a ceremony in Shanghai during NEPCON China 2012.a

Established in 2006, the EM Asia Innovation Awards programme recognises top performing companies for achieving the highest standards in the various manufacturing-related products, materials and equipment in Asia.

The new MV-9 2D/3D AOI machines are configured with MIRTEC’s 15 megapixel ISIS vision system. This optics system is comprised of a 15 megapixel top-down camera and a precision telecentric compound lens. It is designed and manufactured by MIRTEC for use with its complete product range of inspection equipment.

ISIS is an acronym for ‘infinitely scalable imaging sensor’. As the name implies, the resolution of the ISIS vision system may be scaled or modified to address the specific inspection requirements of virtually any production environment without sacrificing speed or performance.

MIRTEC’s proprietary 3D Multi Frequency Quad Moirè technology provides true 3D inspection of SMT devices on finished PCB assemblies using a total of four Moiré inspection probes. This yields precise height measurement used to detect lifted component and lifted lead defects, as well as solder volume post reflow.

Fully configured, the new MIRTEC MV-7 machines also feature four 10 megapixel side-view cameras in addition to the 15 megapixel top-down camera.
