OMRON Unveils 3D-SPI System at productronica 2019


Reading time ( words)

OMRON has released the new 3D-SPI VP-9000 system used in PCB manufacturing process for the production of electric devices. The solution complements its lineup of 3D-AOI and 3D-CT AXI systems, as well as flexible robotics solutions for personalized manufacturing that are demonstrated at its Booth 331 in Hall A2 at productronica.

Approximately 70% of defects in PCB manufacturing are caused by the printing process of solder paste on the PCB. The new VP9000 solder paste inspection solution from OMRON detects and relays the data to the printer, ensuring reliability. OMRON’s proprietary multiple inspection switch has 3 resolutions (for example, 15um/7.5um/5um) to enable detailed and high-speed inspection of various PCB characteristics by a single machine. The 19-inch touch panel and angle adjustment function of the GUI accommodate all perspectives and simple graphic interface allows for intuitive operation.

This new GUI offers very sharp statistical analysis allowing rapid and targeted improvement process. The SPC station is now widely recognized as one of the most advanced analysis software solutions on the market, able to provide all the necessary data for process control and traceability.

The new VP9000 can complete the loop 3D inspection of a process with the opportunity to correct the excesses of a screen printing process.

The key features of the VP9000 include:

  • Unique concept of 3D measurement combined with a 2D system
  • Automatic warpage compensation
  • Programming in 3 minutes
  • Touch screen panel with Easy operation
  • Choice of resolutions by software
  • Most Advanced SPC software with detailed report function
  • Inspection capacity up to 8900mm²/s
  • M2M closed-loop function up and down-stream
  • Used online or island position
  • Very low maintenance

“We are proud to share this new solution with the visitors at productronica. With this solution that contributes to the process of complete automatic inspection, we believe that automotive manufacturers can achieve zero-defect processes, to fulfils the quality and reliability requirements of the automotive industry," stated Kevin Youngs, European Sales Manager at OMRON Europe B.V., Automated Inspection Systems Division Europe.

About “innovative-automation”

As a leader in industrial automation, OMRON has extensive lines of control components and equipment, ranging from image-processing sensors and other input devices to various controllers and output devices such as servo motors, as well as a range of safety devices and industrial robots. By combining these devices via software, OMRON has developed a variety of unique and highly effective automation solutions for manufacturers worldwide. Based on its reservoir of advanced technologies and comprehensive range of devices, OMRON set forth a strategic concept called "innovative-automation." consisting of three innovations or "i's"--"integrated" (control evolution), "intelligent" (development of intelligence by ICT), and "interactive" (new harmonization between people and machines). OMRON is now committed to bringing innovation to manufacturing sites by materializing this concept.

What is a good solder joint? And how can they be tested not only for purposes of process characterisation, optimisation, monitoring, and control but also for ensuring their long-term reliability? Pete Starkey details a webinar organised by the Europe Chapter of SMTA that was presented by Bob Willis, an expert in soldering, assembly technologies, and failure analysis.

This Month in SMT007 Magazine: Test and Measurement in a Smart Factory

11/03/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Nolan Johnson spoke with MIRTEC President Brian D’Amico about how the role of test and measurement equipment is changing in the smart factory and how shops can adjust to make use of the new technology. D’Amico shares this insight: “While approximately 90% of U.S. electronics manufacturers recognize the potential of Industry 4.0 to improve productivity, many are slow to adopt smart factory solutions within the manufacturing process.”

Reducing Flux Splatter in Sensors and Camera Modules

10/30/2020 | Jasbir Bath, Shantanu Joshi, and Noriyoshi Uchida, Koki Solder America And Koki Company Limited
With the increased use of electronics in new technology areas, flux formulations are being developed to address the new and existing requirements. For sensors and camera modules used for Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) and internet of things (IoT) applications, there is a demand for no-clean flux formulations in lead-free solder paste, which can reduce flux splattering during reflow.
