Libra Industries Installs New SPI Systems in Mentor and Dallas Facilities


Reading time ( words)

Libra Industries has completed the installation of two new Omron CDK VP5200-V solder paste inspection systems. One system was installed at Libra Industries’ Mentor facility, and one was installed at the Dallas facility. 

Libra Industries VP of Operations Steve Schwaebler stated, “Since implementing SPI, our productivity has increased and we have gained the ability to inspect fixture sizes that are too small for reliable visual inspection, with true 3D measurements. We are looking forward to adding additional stations to our other lines.” 

After benefitting from high-speed inspection and an industry-leading speed of 9,400mm2/sec after the first install, Libra Industries has successfully installed two additional units.  The VP-V series is specially designed to achieve a higher speed of inspection to meet the needs of high-speed production lines, such as Libra Industries’. 

With inline detection, mounting faults at the initial stage, which make up 70 percent of the total, can be detected early on. The VP5200-V provides Libra Industries with high accuracy and repeatability to support the inspection of ultra-fine pads. The system’s repeatability of height inspection is within 1µm at 3σ (height standard jig), and the repeatability of volume inspection is within two percent at 3σ (CKD's sample PCB). 

Libra Industries continues to invest to provide customized manufacturing solutions to help make its customers more competitive and improve their profitability. For more information, click here.

What’s Driving AOI Innovation and Collaboration?

03/25/2020 | Brent Fischthal, Koh Young America
When we look at the optical inspection market growth trajectory, we can see how process challenges helped create innovations. For example, solder paste inspection (SPI) has undergone a shift from 2D to 3D because the 2D inspection technologies manufacturers traditionally used to collect solder deposit images could not solve shadowing problems. Thus, companies developed 3D SPI to capture the printed solder paste height to accurately measure the total volume of paste printed. Several years later, we see the same need for surface-mounted component inspection with AOI systems.

Trends From the Show: Solder and Software

03/18/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
In my role as a media representative, my perspective on IPC APEX EXPO may be a bit different from that of many attendees. Since the I-Connect007 team had the opportunity to talk to many attendees and exhibitors and listen to their stories over the course of the week, our view can be particularly wide. When I reflected on all the conversations, pieces from all throughout the week coalesced and provided a different understanding of and takeaway from the show.
