GOEPEL electronic Launches New AOI Software Version with Enhanced 3D Capabilities


Reading time ( words)

Users of AOI and SPI systems from GOEPEL electronic can look forward to a software update. With the rollout, the system software PILOT AOI in the new version 6.5 will receive numerous smaller and larger improvements for test functions, program creation and optimizations.

A new function for 3D inspection at THT solder joints significantly increases the measurement accuracy at pins with the possibility of presetting the position as well as the minimum and maximum length of the pin. Similarly, measurements can be performed on pin solder joints, with minimum and maximum solder height and wetting preset. The THT test functions are integrated into the fully automatic test program creation with MagicClick. As a further feature, the measured value recordings are optimized by reducing possible interference, among other things. 

As a second major innovation, a 3D inspection of unpopulated PCB areas has been integrated into PILOT AOI version 6.5. This inspects for defects such as solder beads, solder splashes, lost and superfluous components. The defect detection is based on height differences. Interfering influences on the measurements, e.g. reflections on the PCB material or position imprints, therefore have no effect on the measurement results.

A new history with comparison function provides a better overview of changes to test programmes. This provides a version history with the option of restoring older project versions. The user can clearly and at a glance record the differences between two revisions. This provides detailed information about the user, workstation and software version.  

The new PILOT software version 6.5 is available for all 3D AOI and SPI system versions, both for SMD and THT inspection.

A limitation of many 3D optical inspection systems is the cycle time typically associated with processing millions of pixels to reconstruct a full 3D image using data captured from multiple channels. There should not be a compromise between 3D inspection and throughput. A successful inspection deployment should provide oversight for the process, not compromise, interrupt or slow that process.

Today, optical inspection systems are the preferred solution for in-line quality control in the SMT industry. Systems such as solder paste inspection (SPI) or automated optical inspection (AOI) systems for pre- and post-reflow are almost standard in every production facility.
