6 sigma 3D inspection at Productronica and Apex

Mek at ProductronicaThe team from Marantz Electronics (Mek) enjoyed a very successful Productronica exhibition in Munich, Germany this year.
44,000 visitors from 85 countries came to Munich, an increase of almost 20% over the previous event and the Marantz stand was overwhelmed by the positive feedback from visitors and distributors, all impressed by the company’s new AOI technologies.
Productronica represented the European launch of Mek’s new flagship 3D AOI system ISO-Spector M1A, which will subsequently be rolled out across the rest of the world in 2018.

The ISO-Spector is the industry’s most advanced high-speed 3D SMT solder joints and components AOI and introduces an exceptionally convenient fast automatic programming method while achieving production ready inspection results with very short cycle times. The Artificial Intelligence of the system learns the production process values of assembled and reflowed PCB’s then recognizes defects determined by hundreds of preset parameters based on CAD and Gerber data. This applies especially to solder joints, which are typically the most difficult and time consuming to program in AOI’s.
So impressed were visitors, they claimed the ISO-Spector technology to be like ‘magic’. Of course, there is no magic involved here, just the industry’s highest specifications, process driven 6 sigma inspection and exceptionally easy and user-independent programming.

For those of you that speak German here’s a video of Meks Henk Biemans talking to Global SMT magazine.

Now that Productronica is over and Christmas is just around the corner we are starting our preparations for our next show, IPC Apex in San Diego at the end of February. Here again, you’ll be able to witness our wide range of AOI solutions: full quality-control tools, with maximized defects coverage and minimum human interaction, at the lowest cost. Add the date to your diary (Feb 27th – March 1st 2018) and visit us in San Diego on booth 1707 to see how Mek AOI and SPI can help you drive performance and transform your organisation into a leader in quality…
