Virtual Product Inspection

A fully integrated, stand-alone process control, measurement and inspection and programming workstation for use in setting up processes before the production floor in the PCB or Hybrid Microcircuit assembly industries.
Uses a PC Windows-based software package integrated with a high resolution, calibrated, A3 size flatbed scanner. This combination allows inspection of artwork, PCB’s, ceramic substrates, components, stencils and screens at virtually any stage of production. Parts can be inspected versus either Gerber data, CAD data or Golden parts. All variables come together as a virtual part to avoid costly problems before full production starts.

Simple, intuitive operation 
Fast, easy programming and short inspection times
Various inspection capabilities for manufacturing 
 Ensure process control for high volume production
Exceptional quality and minimized cost for low volume production
Avoid risks involved with new product introduction
Creates a virtual part to avoid costly production problems

Product Functions


PCB Assembly Applications

Capable of performing many different functions in a PCB Assembly facility such as: Design, Components, Bare Boards, Stencils and Screens, Wet Boards, First Article Inspection, Loaded Boards


Hybrid Microcircuit Applications

Used to check: Design, Artwork, Wet Substrates, Loaded Substrates, Stencils/Screens 


Programming System

• Create through hole or SMT assembly programs from either Gerber data, ASCII centroid data or scanned images of PCB’s, film and stencils. 
• Create component vision files for SMT placement equipment from scanned images of components. Offline and no more calipers.


Simple Operation

Can be quickly learned and is simple to operate. Most inspection operations only take a few steps and can be completed very quickly. Operators can step between defects and zoom in and out to verify errors. Inspection reports can be easily generated.
