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.

EIPC Technical Snapshot: Cleanliness

03/01/2021 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
John Ling’s invitation to the fifth in EIPC’s series of Technical Snapshots was as droll as we have come to expect: “In these confined days of lockdown, and exhortations to stay at home and only go out for exercise, this only exercises the natural inclination to hop on a ‘plane to some sunshine.’ Although not the same as Factor 20, one of our webinars gives a high degree of protection from harmful ignorance, and you do not have to go out in the cold.”

Chapter 1 Excerpt: The Printed Circuit Assembler’s Guide to Process Validation

12/31/2020 | Graham Naisbitt, Gen3 Systems
The original principle underlying the IPC’s ionic cleanliness requirement was that the mobility of surface ions, detectable from SIR measurements, would correlate to a maximum value of detectable ionic elements permissible on the circuit surface. The industry required a test that was both fast and accurate for process control. Thus, a simplified ion chromatograph that was able to detect ionic elements without differentiation was created.
