Prototype Test

Extensive testing to check technical parameters or integrated functions is conducted after completion of the development phase or even during development. Ambient conditions can be simulated and the responses of the equipment being tested can be recorded.

The prototype test is used for early detection of design faults before a product enters series production. Even during the development process, a test system must be capable of influencing as many parameters as possible and integrating various characteristics. 

The prototype test procedures developed by GÖPEL electronic are carried directly over to the end-of-line test after optimisation of the cycle time.

Examples of applications for prototype test systems by GÖPEL electronic include:

  • Climate testing systems
  • Seat motors
  • ABS pumps
  • Engine testing systems
  • Current measurement devices
  • Rain/light sensors

Intelligent PCB Transport for X-ray Inspection System

Reduced handling time with intelliFLOW

The automatic X-ray system X Line - 3D from GOEPEL electronic has a new, intelligent PCB transport to reduce the PCB handling time. This also results in a shorter overall cycle time and thus a higher throughput.

Electronic assemblies can be very different in their characteristics. Differences include size, weight and friction coefficient. The intelligent PCB transport intelliFLOW automatically determines the optimum transport parameters taking these values into account. As a result, users get a product-specific optimised handling time and reduced overall cycle time. The transport speed is adapted fully automatically to the assembly in order to always guarantee the shortest handling time.  Furthermore, the AXI system consists of three independent conveyor modules inside. These enable parallel loading, inspection and unloading. Thus, the PCB under inspection is released immediately after image acquisition and transported to another belt module for post-processing (image processing, data export, MES, ...). A lock system built into the system prevents X-rays from escaping during the module change.

The new intelliFLOW feature is available from version 4.3 of the PILOT Inspect machine software.
