Viscom Inc. has been selected by Epoch International for its AOI and SPI needs at its new facility in Fremont, California. Epoch has been using Viscom’s AOI and SPI systems at its China facility, and recently invested in the Viscom 3D AOI model S3088 ultra blue and 3D SPI model S3088 for its new Silicon Valley location.
Epoch recently relocated its US headquarters and all operations to a state-of-the-art facility in Fremont. Nathan Ashelman, Director of Operations, said: "We selected Viscom for our SPI and AOI because they combine reliable and high-precision machine performance with responsive global service that covers all our facilities and sophisticated data-integration capabilities that allow us to tie into our real-time monitoring and reporting system. Viscom continues to evolve as we do and is a trusted partner for the long term."
The S3088 ultra blue addresses the growing demand for reliable and easy-to-use 3D AOI technology at an economical price. One orthogonal and four angled view cameras provide full 3D defect detection coverage for components and solder joints on PCBs. The algorithm-based technology that Viscom provides will deliver greater measurement accuracy while inspecting components and solder joints, which in-turn provides feedback to gain tighter process control to optimize the overall quality for each product being produced.
The award-winning inspection system S3088 SPI combines the advantages of market-leading Viscom AOI systems with powerful 3D SPI sensor technology and inspects the solder paste deposits with the highest possible speed and precision. Even the most demanding assemblies with CSPs or micro BGAs and pad sizes of 01005 are reliably inspected.
Epoch International is a high-tech design engineering and manufacturing services company with design and prototyping capabilities in California and higher volume manufacturing in Dalian, China.
