What is really inside your AOI?

Installed for the first time 20 years ago, Automated Optical Inspection (AOI) more recently has become an essential part of our SMT environment. Today, most process engineers are turning to machines as an inspection strategy for addressing quality and pro


Comparing Costs and ROI of AOI and AXI

PCB architectures have continued their steep trend toward greater complexities and higher component densities. For quality control managers and test technicians, the consequence is significant. Their ability to electrically test these products is compounded with each new generation. Probe access to high density boards loaded with micro BGAs using ...

Streaming Machine Learning and Online Active Learning for Automated Visual Inspection

Quality control is a key activity performed by manufacturing companies to verify product conformance to the requirements and specifications. Standardized quality control ensures that all the products are evaluated under the same criteria. The decreased cost of sensors and connectivity enabled an increasing digitalization of manufacturing and provided greater data availability. Such data availability has spurred the development of artificial intelligence models, which ...

Samsung CP63HP - Advice -- Hi Guys, Recently a CP63HP has come on the market near us. (Well 600km away) Unfortunately the machine is not in working order. I have searched the web but can't find much detail on the machine and even spare parts seem limited. Does anyone know how repairable these machines are and if anyone could share any detail eg. Manuals, contacts for parts, software. This would be a first machine for us and don't want to get in over our heads. We based in South Africa, the owner mentioned the following problems: 1. Corrupted operating software 2. 2 x faulty nozzles (Z movement error) 3. 1 x Faulty Board (IESP-6515) Thanks
