AOI / Automated Optical Inspection

Model Year:

Offered by:

Nelson Specialties Company

This AOI was purchased for $49,995 from Manncorp.  The Sherlock AOI is in excellent condition and has under 200 hours of usage.  

The Sherlock AOI Systems detect a comprehensive range of defects and errors in PCB assembly using the Sherlock PCB inspection software.   The benchtop Sherlock-300F AOI machine was designed to make in-house AOI manageable for first-article inspection, prototyping, and full production inspection requirements. 

  • The 300-F uses a high-resolution, 2.2-megapixel CMOS camera, a large-aperture telecentric lens, and two lighting systems for accurate inspection of both solder quality and components at a screening rate of 50 cm2/sec. 
  • The RGB lighting system inspects solder fillets for volume and shape.  The three-tier white lighting system inspects component placement and positioning with reflection and shadow controls to ensure low false calls and low false accepts.
  • The standard lens inspects parts down to 0201.  Telecentric lenses eliminate perspective errors, reduce distortion toward the edges of the field of vision, and provide uniform image plane illumination.
  • This unit includes a stand for the Sherlock 300-F.
