Optical Control to show component counter with automatic
Optical Control Americas, is pleased to announce plans to exhibit at the 2019 IPC APEX EXPO, scheduled to take place Jan. 29-31, 2019 at the San Diego Convention Center in CA. The company will demonstrate the OC-SCAN®CCX.3 component counter with automatic loading/unloading and offline station in Booth #1932. Additionally, a major new software update will be launched at the show.
The CCX.3 X-ray from optical control is a true plug-and-play system that can X-ray ANY size reel in the same cycle time no matter type of component, or how full or empty it is. It is the only machine with this ability, and combined with the best accuracy it is capable of providing an ROI faster than any other machine. The highlight of the CCX.3 is – there are no libraries required or need for customer input to get started. It’s as simple as plugging in the machine, and start counting.
The machine also can be configured for complete automation, including integrations into other sytems such as automated storage units. Whether this is done by software only, using a loading and unloading unit, or complete integration, is up to the customer in their steps toward industry 4.0.
Exact inventory knowledge and permanent inventory is mandatory to increase productivity, for on-time delivery and an immediate reaction in case of bottlenecks. Monitoring and controlling inventory to run the lines is equally critical for the production process. The OC-SCAN®CCX.3 SMD counter was truly the first component counter in the industry. It simplifies electronic manufacturing work and gives exact, precise control of inventory, and as a result, helps keeps lines running!
