Mek will showcase its widest ever range of AOI offerings at IPC Apex 2016
Mek (Marantz Electronics), will showcase its most comprehensive range of AOI systems in the company’s history at the forthcoming IPC Apex Expo in Las Vegas on booth #965.
The Mek team will be on hand to host live demonstrations of unique AOI capability across a very wide range of applications and budgets.
The new Mek SpiderEye is a static AOI system for the automated inspection of moving objects. It features eight, high frame rate colour cameras operating simultaneously, each with their own controlled LED light source. All image capturing devices are controlled by proprietary, state-of-the-art electronics and programmed by a single computer and controller with the same 22X powerful software engine as Mek AOI machines. Mek SpiderEye utilises just a single software interface to control and program all eight cameras – no need for multiple inspection programs.
Mek’s desktop solutions offer benchtop PCB inspection with exceptional defect coverage. The new iSpector is an entry level machine for manufacturers requiring high-quality AOI with a low price tag. Providing a rapid, repeatable inspection process at an affordable cost, it’s a plug-and-play installation with iMentor online training and is exceptionally easy-to-program.
Among the other product highlights is the SpectorBOX “Bottom-Up / Top-Down” Modular AOI system uniquely engineered to accommodate solder frames on return and/or feed conveyors. SpectorBOX offers bottom side, top side or simultaneous dual side inspection, deploying up to 18 cameras, Z axis positioning and auto-focus. Optimized for the inspection of THT components to identify defects such as presence/absence, wrong polarity, colour, type, and bent pins, now, the unique top clearance of 130mm (5.12”) allows the Top Down SpectorBOX to inspect virtually any completed electronic and electro-mechanical assembly — even when the tallest of components are present.
Mek’s flagship PowerSpector AOI will also be featured on the booth. The PowerSpector AOI stands out in situations where production quality is the top priority. It reliably inspects SMT and THT component bodies for presence/absence, type, polarity, offset, text, colours etc. and components’ solder fillets for excessive, insufficient or no solder, shorts, and lifted leads. Combined with Catch yield enhancement software, Mek PowerSpector AOI is a completely closed loop, powerful process monitoring and quality control tool.
We look forward to welcoming visitors to our booth.
