Reading time ( words)

MIRTEC is pleased to announce that Gentec, a Québec-based design and manufacturing company specializing in rugged and reliable custom-made products and solutions in the fields of high-tech, power and power management electronics, has selected MIRTEC’s award-winning MV-3 OMNI Desktop 3D AOI system.  The MV-3 OMNI is the perfect 3D Inspection Solution to strengthen Gentec’s commitment to uncompromised production quality.

 “Since 1959, Gentec has been designing and manufacturing long-lasting, reliable, state-of-the-art electronics for the power and energy management sectors.  The company has maintained its position as market leader thanks largely to its highly skilled employees and a commitment to customer satisfaction.  In recent years, we have seen an increased number of US companies “offshoring” their Electronics Manufacturing to Canada.  Working with Gentec is a great way for these companies to reduce costs without sacrificing quality.  As proof that we make no compromise on quality, Gentec recently invested in a new MIRTEC MV-3 OMNI 3D AOI machine.  The outstanding inspection capability of this system has resulted in a drastic reduction in manufacturing defect rates allowing us to pass on additional cost savings to our customers,” stated Christian Plourde, Gentec Operations Coordinator.

“Electronic Manufacturers are becoming ever more selective in purchasing equipment that will add value to their business and provide them with a much-needed edge in this highly competitive industry,” said Brian D’Amico, President of MIRTEC Corp. “An increasing number of manufacturers are relying upon MIRTEC’s award-winning 3D Automated Optical Inspection (AOI) machines to help increase profitability by improving production yields and reducing costly rework. We are extremely pleased to have been awarded Gentec’s 3D AOI business. We look forward to a long and prosperous relationship between our two organizations.”

MIRTEC’s MV-3 OMNI Desktop 3D AOI Machines are configured with the company’s exclusive OMNI-VISION® 3D Inspection Technology which combines a 15 Mega Pixel CoaXPress Camera System with MIRTEC’s revolutionary Digital Tri-Frequency Moiré 3D Technology to provide precision inspection of SMT devices on finished PCB assemblies. This proprietary system yields precise height measurement used to detect lifted component and lifted lead defects as well as 3D solder fillet inspection post reflow.  Fully configured the MV-3 OMNI machines feature four (4) 10 Mega Pixel Side-View Cameras in addition to the 15 Mega Pixel CoaXPress Top-Down Camera and an Eight (8) Phase COLOR Lighting System.
