Altus Helps Leading Electronics Manufacturer with Difficult Inspection

Sep 30, 2021

Since adding Quins range of technologically advanced inspection equipment to its portfolio just a year ago, Altus is seeing the brand’s popularity go from strength to strength with Newbury Electronics being the latest company to install its innovative machines.

Buying new capital equipment is always an important decision and therefore it is important for Altus to only offer best-in-class products. Quins machines have proved themselves to be a popular addition to the portfolio. The latest company to utilise Quins innovative technology for the inspection of a high mix of products is leading PCB fabrication and assembly manufacturer, Newbury Electronics.

Chris Hobson, Newbury Electronics said: We have a policy of continuous investment in latest technologies, practices and manufacturing equipment, often driven by our client’s process innovation requests, to make sure we can deliver the best possible product for our customers now and into the future.

The Quins product line offering by Altus had a great feature set and suitable equipment footprint to deploy into our inspection team vs its price point. Recommendations from other users also reduced the risk and gave us the confidence to invest in the product, with direct support through Altus.

“This has been born out in our initial deployment, where it has exceeded our expectations and has proven to be a great addition to our inspection department, aiding in accelerating inspection flow for boards that have taller devices or through hole components that would normally struggle with other AOI machines specified with SMD / lower profile components in mind.”

Anthony Oh, Technical Applications Manager- Altus added: “Since adding Quins inspection equipment to our product offering we have seen huge interest. The equipment has proven itself to be a safe investment and is increasing the quality of the finished product thanks to its impressive inspection abilities which inspects, captures and records high quality images of every PCBA being produced for traceability purposes.

“Newbury Electronics required an inspection process that allowed clear data capture of larger assemblies. Quins equipment can take away a process that was once only achievable through manual processes and increase efficiency and quality assurance.”

Newbury Electronics installed the Quins Pro UV. This innovative machine protects employees from harmful UV radiation when testing the assembly coating. Thanks to its combination of scanners and innovative software, Pro UV delivers high-resolution images and a simple optical test environment.
