InspectScan VPI - Virtual Product inspection System Description:

InspectScan VPI is a fully integrated, stand-alone process control, measurement and inspection and programming workstation for use in setting up processes before the production floor in the PCB or Hybrid Microcircuit assembly industries.

InspectScan VPI uses a PC Windows based software package integrated with a high-resolution, calibrated, A3 size flatbed scanner. This combination allows inspection of artwork, PCB’s, ceramic substrates, components, stencils and screens at virtually any stage of production. Parts can be inspected versus either Gerber data, CAD data or Golden parts. All variables come together as a virtual part to avoid costly problems before full production starts.

InspectScan VPI is capable of performing many different functions in a PCB Assembly facility such as:

  • Design - Check Holes, Slots, Real Estate.
  • Components - Compare parts from Multi-vendors including shape, color, size.
  • Bare Boards – FR4, Ceramic or Flex parts. Compare from multi-vendors. Compare to Gerber or to Stencil.
  • Stencils/Screens – Detect stretch, wear, missing, blocked or damages apertures. Use for incoming inspection or in production after cleaning.
  • Wet Boards – Scan with standoffs. Compare paste or adhesive to Gerber, stencil or Golden part.
  • Loaded Boards – Compare component locations, rotation, package type, etc to CAD data. First Article Inspection!

Simple Operation

The InspectScan VPI system can be quickly learned and is simple to operate. Most inspection operations only take a few steps and can be completed very quickly. Operators can step between defects and zoom in and out to verify errors. Inspection reports can be easily generated.
