In the past year I was responsible for developing and leading a Team focused on AOI, Evaluation, Justification, and with a full ROI required, supporting a HMLV manufacturing environment. If you have in these economic times the additional resources t

Our AOI machines have actually caught wrong resistors before. A reel gets swapped, a vendor sends a wrong part, things happen. To think that we can't rely on resistor markings anymore, that just sucks.

Absolutely - it is probably cheaper! Soon they might start doing it with the transistors, diodes and ICs too. Why would you need a sophisticated AOI machine then? What would quality control look for? It is annoying, considering the amount of differen

As an AOI operator as well, I can see your point, but what about 0402 parts, and all chip capacitors? These parts are not marked, but I presume you accept those? In relaity, an unmarked resistor is no different to any cap, and you don't worry about t

From my perspective, I like marked parts because I can use AOI to verify the correct parts are being placed in production. If an operator is going to load the wrong reel, I prefer to find out on the first PCB rather than after 5000 wrong parts have b

Are the markings on resistors the actual value? Do AOI machines look for these markings or do they just look to see if a component is present and placed well? Can anyone attest to the solderability of upside down resistors? Can anyone argue that u

The Universal chipshooter (Sanyo) has automatic X-Y pick-up correction as standard. Are the upside-down resistors an issue for inspection purposes? Do you use AOI? Can you really read markings on 0402 resistors?

Hi is me again If what you are looking is for the AOI to "see" the marking on a resistor theres the option of taking a picture of only the numbers in the resistor is not highly accurate but it works.

Can Mirtec AOI detect MISSING metallization on the resistors? I love to know how to add into the program to catch it. Thank you!

I would go with AOI. Reasons are: --AOIs are faster --They have more coverage. Given, you cannot test the value of components, but the AOI will ensure that all resistors are correct, orientation of ICs are proper and components are present on the
