The Merlin offers a price competitive solution that makes full inspection capabilities accessible at almost every budget without sacrificing functionality and ease of use. ASC systems have been optimized for remote support to enable the company to get its customers answers fast, meaning their manufacturing process can have maximum uptime.

The bench-top inspection system, the Merlin, offers all the capabilities of machines more than twice the cost. Using a 5MP camera with sub 8um X-Y resolution, the system gives the ability to inspect almost any component and feature.  Laser sensor for coplanarity height measurements of components and leads.  A robust yet flexible universal carrier system gives the user the flexibility to quickly insert a PCB up to 460mm x 360mm, clamp it and inspect with the press of a single button. Once complete the PCB is returned to the load point ready for the next PCB to be loaded.

The Merlin includes full 1D and 2D bar code reading as standard to offer a fully traceable solution that can be combined with the user-friendly Prey rework suite. It combines excellent mechanical stability with the latest in 64bit software and Windows 10/11 OS to give one of the most truly unique inspection solutions found anywhere in today's global market.

Buy new or make do? It’s an age-old debate for manufacturers who are trying to decide how best to manage machine assets inside their manufacturing facilities. New machines are expensive, but so is operating existing machines at a comparative deficit.

Finding Solutions in the Quoting Process

It’s easy to frame all our supply chain woes around the COVID-19 pandemic. However, at Screaming Circuits, we started receiving dire warnings about component shortages in early 2018. At that time, we were told that the supply upheaval could last years and that we should expect it to get much worse before it got better. Now, four years later, I would say those warnings nailed it.

Big Data Can Bring Your Business Back

Let’s face it, in the past, electronics manufacturing has not been a big business for North America. A majority of electronics are assembled in Asia where supply chains and operating costs offer many economic advantages. In North America, the electronics manufacturing industry has been generally focused on lower volume, high-cost devices, while higher volume products are produced elsewhere. However, the COVID pandemic and various legislation in the U.S. are changing the situation, making electronics manufacturing in North America a more attractive option. How can factories in North America compete for the same type of manufacturing traditionally performed in lower-cost regions?
