Mek ISO-Spector is an AOI system of ‘true measurement’ for the full across the board inspection of components and solder joints. Continue reading
Recent new additions to our ground breaking SpectorBOX AOI system include a massive 5 inch camera clearance that enables complete single pass inspection of virtually any assembly. Continue reading
Automated pre-placement solder paste inspection (SPI) has established itself in SMT assembly as an essential tool for optimizing the process and reducing end of line defects. It’s been commonly accepted for many years that a majority of assembly defects can be traced back to print defects, and by using raw measurement data from printed PCBs for volume, area, height and offset, SPC histograms and control charts can quite readily be used to optimize the process.

We’ve recently installed a fourth Mek AOI system at Projects Concern Manufacturing. The Johannesburg based EMS provider commissioned an iSpector HDL with Mek statistical control software including CS Center, Repair and Analyser. The system complements their existing 3 Mek systems. Continue reading
The deployment of AOI technology for THT inspection has historically been restricted by a number of factors. These include the physical configuration of most wave and selective soldering lines, which do not lend themselves to conventionally designed AOI machines that are now popular in SMT flow lines. Product is processed in pallets moving on a continuous drive with automatic return on which the inspection must take place.
