Reading time ( words)

PNC Inc. has recently come to an agreement with MIRTEC to purchase the MV-6 OMNI 3D AOI system. To be used in their assembly division, this purchased has bolstered their state-of-the-art equipment list even further.

The award-winning MV-6 OMNI 3D AOI machine is configured with MIRTEC’s exclusive OMNI-VISION 3D Inspection Technology which combines our 15-megapixel CoaXPress camera technology with MIRTEC’s revolutionary digital multi-frequency Quad Moiré 3D system in a newly designed cost-effective platform. MIRTEC’s 15-megapixel CoaXPress vision system is a proprietary camera system designed and manufactured by MIRTEC for use with our complete product range of 3D inspection systems. MIRTEC’s digital multi-frequency Quad Moiré Technology, provides true 3D inspection using a total of four programmable digital Moiré Projectors to yield precise height measurement data used to detect lifted component and lifted lead defects as well as solder volume post reflow.

Fully configured, the new MIRTEC MV-6 OMNI machines feature four 10-megapixel side-view cameras in addition to the 15-megapixel top-down camera. There is little doubt that this new technology has set the standard by which all other inspection equipment is measured. MIRTEC will have two MV-6 OMNIs on display, one configured with a 10um lens for high-performance applications and the other with a 15um lens for high-speed applications.

“With the volume of orders we have been receiving and the growth PNC has shown in 2017, we thought this purchase was the right step forward for next year,” explain PNC Inc. President Sam Sangani. The MV-6 was recently awarded numerous honors for its performance across the globe. This, in addition to other key contributors such as its efficiency and flexibility were some of the reasons PNC’s leadership decided on making this their next equipment purchase.

PCB Pad Repair Techniques

01/08/2018 | Bob Wettermann, BEST Inc.
There are a variety of reasons behind pads getting "lifted" completely or partially from the laminate of a PCB. Per the just revised IPC-A-610 Revision G, a defect for all three classes occurs when the land is lifted up one or more pad thicknesses. Lifted pads can occur when a device has been improperly removed or there is a manufacturing defect in the board construction. In any case, as with any repair, the ultimate decision on the ability to repair the pad lies with the customer.

The Effect of Area Shape and Area Ratio on Solder Paste Printing Performance

12/28/2017 | Stefan Härter, et al.
The ongoing miniaturization trend in the SMT production induces new challenges and highly integrated systems. In passive components, the miniaturization leads to the introduction of the EIA size 01005 or smaller. Despite numerous publications in this field already addressing the printing of such devices, a defined wholly optimized process remains unsolved and inspires further novel research ideas on this topic.
