Vectoral imaging is ViTechnology's patented enabling AOI technology, which compares the graphical characteristics of inspected components with known standards that are maintained in a customer-definable library. Unlike the more common gray scale correlation, vectoral imaging is less affected by background clutter, overlapping parts and component rotation. When combined with SPC software, it provides a complete quality information system that reduces defects in the manufacturing process.
SIPLACE Explorer is a new software system for monitoring the performance of complete Siemens Dematic surface-mount lines, including placement systems, printers and ovens. The software is targeted primarily towards the process engineer and the maintenance technician, and allows the user to acquire information about the complete surface-mount production process. Additionally, detailed information about the production process can be utilized by experienced manufacturing consultants.
