Goepel's 3D·EyeZ Ensures Safe Mounting of Press-fit Connectors through Depth Measurement


Reading time ( words)

Goepel electronic's 3D·EyeZ sensor system offers a wide range of applications in electronics manufacturing due to its shadow-free measurement. The unique design allows for the measurement of the press-in depth of press-fit connectors mounted on PCBs. It is possible to directly measure inside the drill-holes of the PCB and determine the position of the pin tip within the PCB material. Even in holes with a diameter of up to 200µm, the exact position inside the drill-hole can be measured with an accuracy of up to 5µm.

This level of quality control is required, for example, to ensure proper electrical functionality of this type of plug-in connector when used for high-frequency data transmission in telecommunications applications. 

In addition to this application, 3D·EyeZ allows circumference and set depth inspection of conventional connector pins on PCBs. Possible test functions are control of the x/y deflection and measurement of the pin height. 

Despite the increasing miniaturization and ever higher integration density on electronic assemblies, plug connectors are still an important part of assembled components. In addition to solder joints and polarity, correct assembly and mechanical properties of the individual pins are of critical importance for quality assessment. 

The measurement module 3D·EyeZ, together with the orthogonal camera and the rotating angled-view module Chameleon, is optionally available for the AOI systems from Goepel electronic, both inline and standalone.

Setting Clear Boundaries with Your EMS Provider

03/05/2018 | Neil Sharp, JJS Manufacturing
A common area for confusion, particularly during the early stages of an outsourcing partnership, relates to 'boundaries', and agreeing who is responsible for what. If clear lines are not discussed and agreed between you and your EMS provider, it can be easy to fall into an assumption trap, and we all know what happens then.
