Hello, I am looking for a new desktop AOI machine which is able to verify a 1st off/master board. This means capture the image of the 1st board and add the placement list file to it, then use the software to check each part to its location on the board.

You don't want an AOI machine you want an FAI (First Article Inspection) like one of these http://www.aoisystems.com/Scanner-Based-FA-Inspector.html (note some of the products here call themselves AOI, arguably they are not.) Or https://www.quins.de/QuinsWeb/

or https://blundell.co.uk/product/extra-eye-now-aoi-fai/

A budget solution would be https://www.compuphase.com/visualplace/visualplace_en.htm where you could combine a camera, the free software and board data to step through each location and inspect it manually

Thank you and appreciate the information and links that you provided. The quinns looks to tick the box of what I am after.

Quins can be a bit flakey, and the response times to issues slow. Quick and easy to use though.

The Visualplace solution requires you to step through each location every time or just the first?

&gt; The Visualplace solution requires you to step <BR> &gt; through each location every time or just the <BR> &gt; first? <BR> <BR> It's really a tool to aid manual assembly, I'm just suggesting you could abuse it to help an operator step through the locations in a guided fashion.

First Article Inspection system is recommended. We use FAI , SPI and off-line AOI. FAI is very important for middle to high volume PCB assembly.
