Facing the Challenges of THT Inspection

SpectorBOX - bottom up AOI inspectionThe 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.

Emerging trends in printed circuit board assembly, in particular high power automotive electronics, present an increasing requirement for automated inspection of THT.  Rework is increasingly forbidden, pressurizing selective and wave soldering yields, and making AOI the solution of choice.
