There seems to be a lot of information related to the benefits of using AOI, but has anyone found more balanced or opposing views? Indeed, has anyone experienced significant problems or issues with AOI machines? Is it really what it's cracked up to b

The GSM simulator is good for estimating how long it will take,just to give you a ball park figure. That is my opinion. We do use GSM's, and I do use the simulator for HSP and GSM to balance the line. It's a good start point.

Lucky guess, eh? [Sorry to blow your theory on bad parts] A 1000 of these boards on the line, ummm. Two ideas to consider: * Increase the conveyor angle [don't get carried away, just keep the angle below 8*]. * Balance the flow of solder so that th
