Plug-and-Play Component Counting from optical control at SMTAI


Reading time ( words)

optical control GmbH & Co. KG plans to exhibit at SMTA International, scheduled to take place October 16-17, 2018 at the Donald Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois. Company representatives will demonstrate the OC-SCAN CCX.3 component counter in booth #702.

Exact inventory knowledge and permanent inventory is mandatory to increase productivity, for on-time delivery and an immediate reaction in case of bottlenecks. Monitoring and controlling inventory to run the lines is equally critical for the production process. The OC-SCAN CCX.3 SMD counting machine simplifies electronic manufacturing work and gives exact and precise control of inventory, and as a result, helps keeps lines running.

The CCX.3 X-ray from optical control was truly the first component counter in the industry. The machine is fully automated as far as programming – there are no libraries or need for customer input to get started. It is truly a plug-and-play system and can X-ray any size reel in the same cycle time no matter how full or empty the reel is. It is the only machine with this ability, providing an ROI faster than any other machine.

The machine also can be configured for complete automation without an operator at the machine. This is done by installing the loading and unloading unit. This unit will handle a stack of reels that is placed into the machine automatically. After the count, the reel will be removed and can be placed in a bin, on a trolley, or an AGV. It is true automation for industry 4.0.

Ensuring you're hitting your build times is always a major priority in surface mount production. The challenge for many OEMs, however, is that the processes involved with PCBA can be numerous and complex. And the smallest of details can make the biggest of differences.

Supply Chain in Crisis

02/08/2019 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
In a traditional design flow, the project team tends to use the parts they already know and have footprints for—maybe a little long in the tooth, but known quantities, after all. Except these are not traditional times. Component supplies, prices, and lead times are in a great deal of turmoil. The automotive, IoT, and telecommunications sectors are vacuuming components out of the supply chain at a record pace, exerting influences like early obsolescence of older components and more.
