The new solution will boost OMRON’s zero-defect solutions for the automotive industry.
12 November 2019, Munich. At productronica 2019, Omron has released the new 3D-SPI VP-9000 system used in Printed Circuit Board (PCB) manufacturing process for the production of electric devices. The solution complements its lineup of 3D-AOI and 3D-CT AXI systems, as well as flexible robotics solutions for personalized manufacturing that are demonstrated at its Booth 331 in Hall A2 at the show.
Approximately 70% of defects in PCB manufacturing are caused by the printing process of solder paste on the PCB. The new VP9000 solder paste inspection solution from OMRON detects and relays the data to the printer, ensuring reliability. OMRON’s proprietary multiple inspection switch has 3 resolutions (for example, 15um/7.5um/5um) to enable detailed and high-speed inspection of various PCB characteristics by a single machine. The 19-inch touch panel and angle adjustment function of the GUI accommodate all perspectives and simple graphic interface allows for intuitive operation.
This new GUI offers very sharp statistical analysis allowing rapid and targeted improvement process. The Statistical Process Control (SPC) station is now widely recognized as one of the most advanced analysis software solutions on the market, able to provide all the necessary data for process control and traceability.
The new VP9000 can complete the loop 3D inspection of a process with the opportunity to correct the excesses of a screen printing process.
The key features of the VP9000 include:
- Unique concept of 3D measurement combined with a 2D system
- Automatic warpage compensation
- Programming in 3 minutes
- Touch screen panel with Easy operation
- Choice of resolutions by software
- Most Advanced SPC software with detailed report function
- Inspection capacity up to 8900mm²/s
- M2M closed-loop function up and down-stream
- Used online or island position
- Very low maintenance
“We are proud to share this new solution with the visitors at productronica. With this solution that contributes to the process of complete automatic inspection, we believe that automotive manufacturers can achieve zero-defect processes, to fulfils the quality and reliability requirements of the automotive industry, stated Kevin Youngs, European Sales Manager at Omron Europe B.V., Automated Inspection Systems Division Europe
