Caltronics Purchases MIRTEC’s MV-6 OMNI 3D AOI Machine at SMTAI 2016


Reading time ( words)

Caltronics Design & Assembly, a PCB manufacturing and electronic design company, purchased MIRTEC's award-winning MV-6 OMNI 3D AOI machine during SMTA International in Rosemont, Illinois.

“At Calctronics, we are more than simply a contract manufacturing company – we seek to provide expert solutions in every facet of electronics design all the way to full production. From PCB design and prototyping to manufacturing, testing and logistics, our team specializes in bringing each client’s needs from concept to reality,” said Cal Houdek, co-owner of Caltronics. 

“One of our main objectives is to provide the highest level of PCBA quality, so we're excited to announce the purchase of our new MIRTEC MV-6 OMNI 3D AOI machine," added Houdek. "Now we can verify component placement and solder joint integrity in three dimensions, using MIRTEC’s OMNI-VISION 3D multi-frequency moiré inspection technology and five HD cameras.  If a solder fillet isn't what it should be, or a component is not placed accurately on the PCB, we'll catch it — and you'll experience products that do what they're supposed to do!”

“We at MIRTEC understand that electronic manufacturers are becoming ever more selective in purchasing equipment that will add value to their business and provide them with a much-needed competitive edge in this highly competitive industry,” said Brian D’Amico, president of MIRTEC. “With this in mind, an increasing number of manufacturers are relying upon 3D automated optical inspection (AOI) equipment to help increase profitability by improving production yields and reducing costly rework. We are extremely pleased to have been awarded Calctronics' 3D AOI business. We look forward to a long and prosperous relationship between our two organizations.”

MIRTEC’s award-winning MV-6 OMNI 3D AOI Machine is configured with MIRTEC’s exclusive OMNI-VISION 3D Inspection System which combines 15 megapixel CoaXPress camera technology with MIRTEC’s revolutionary digital multi-frequency quad moiré 3D system to provide precision inspection of SMT devices on finished PCB assemblies. This proprietary system yields precise height measurement used to detect lifted component and lifted lead defects as well as 3D solder fillet inspection post reflow.  Fully configured the MV-6 OMNI machine features four 10 megapixel side-view cameras in addition to the 15 megapixel CoaXPress top-down camera and an eight-phase color lighting system.
