Goepel Enables Central Verification of Results from Several Systems

Reading time ( words)

Goepel electronic's PILOT Supervisor is a new software module for the central verification of test results from different inspection systems and production lines. From a separate classifying station, an operator can evaluate the inspection result of different production lines. The usual equipment of the workstations in the respective lines can be omitted.

One highlight of the software package is the integration of inspection systems (AOI, AXI, SPI) from other manufacturers. This includes both error display and statistical evaluation. In addition, when several operators are used, the responsibilities for the respective systems or production lines can be defined flexibly.

PILOT Supervisor is a new model of the data management software PILOT Connect and is seamlessly integrated into the superordinate central data management of all information and results, generated or required in the inspection process.

CAD data, user data, system master data and inspection results are stored and administered uniformly in a database system. This can be realized by MySQL, MS-SQL or Oracle. In addition, PILOT Connect allows a uniform MES connection regarding to Industry 4.0. Depending on the production-specific system used, different communication options with PILOT Connect are available.

Companies have been collecting data in large volumes. Highly varied data from manufacturing operations comes in quickly that needs to be validated, and its value prioritized so that it can be turned into something useful—transformed from big data to smart data. The amount of data available has grown exponentially into big data. Twenty years ago, a PCB work order resulted in 100 data records, megabytes of data; today, it is 10 billion records, terabytes of data. The investment in collecting this data and storing it is high. However, without a way to analyze the data, without analytics, it will not result in ROI.

Smart Is Not A Binary Concept

04/21/2021 | Michael Ford, Aegis Software
“Smart” is not simply an “on” or “off” state. Just like people, some solutions are “smarter” than others; as we see from the various ways of measuring intelligence within humans, there are many kinds of “smarts.” When looking to invest in a smart manufacturing strategy, the playing field is more complex than it may appear. We should first understand and define what “smart” means, to what extent it exists, and the other requirements and dependencies that are needed to get the best value from investment.

A limitation of many 3D optical inspection systems is the cycle time typically associated with processing millions of pixels to reconstruct a full 3D image using data captured from multiple channels. There should not be a compromise between 3D inspection and throughput. A successful inspection deployment should provide oversight for the process, not compromise, interrupt or slow that process.
