PNC Inc. Invests in MIRTEC 3D AOI System


Reading time ( words)

PNC Inc. has recently come to an agreement with MIRTEC to purchase the MV-6 OMNI 3D AOI system. To be used in their assembly division, this purchased has bolstered their state-of-the-art equipment list even further.

The award-winning MV-6 OMNI 3D AOI machine is configured with MIRTEC’s exclusive OMNI-VISION 3D Inspection Technology which combines our 15-megapixel CoaXPress camera technology with MIRTEC’s revolutionary digital multi-frequency Quad Moiré 3D system in a newly designed cost-effective platform. MIRTEC’s 15-megapixel CoaXPress vision system is a proprietary camera system designed and manufactured by MIRTEC for use with our complete product range of 3D inspection systems. MIRTEC’s digital multi-frequency Quad Moiré Technology, provides true 3D inspection using a total of four programmable digital Moiré Projectors to yield precise height measurement data used to detect lifted component and lifted lead defects as well as solder volume post reflow.

Fully configured, the new MIRTEC MV-6 OMNI machines feature four 10-megapixel side-view cameras in addition to the 15-megapixel top-down camera. There is little doubt that this new technology has set the standard by which all other inspection equipment is measured. MIRTEC will have two MV-6 OMNIs on display, one configured with a 10um lens for high-performance applications and the other with a 15um lens for high-speed applications.

“With the volume of orders we have been receiving and the growth PNC has shown in 2017, we thought this purchase was the right step forward for next year,” explain PNC Inc. President Sam Sangani. The MV-6 was recently awarded numerous honors for its performance across the globe. This, in addition to other key contributors such as its efficiency and flexibility were some of the reasons PNC’s leadership decided on making this their next equipment purchase.

Stencil Printing Techniques for Challenging Heterogeneous Assembly Applications

04/16/2018 | Mark Whitmore and Jeff Schake, ASM Assembly Systems
A new generation of near microscopic size SMT chip capacitors has appeared in the market, known as either 0201 or 008004. This article investigates and characterizes the stencil printing process for compatibility with M0201 capacitor assembly. Effects of circuit board quality, stencil thickness, and stencil nano-coating are evaluated against solder paste volume transfer efficiency and raw-volume print distribution.
