Automated Optical Inspection of SMD Assemblies

Basic Line · 3D

Stand-alone AOI System for manual loading and flexible adaptation of different assemblies.

The Basic Line · 3D can also be utilized as a separate repair station and is characterized by a comfortable fault classification via keyboard.

A multitude of variants and settings in illumination and camera make the system a highly precise and fast inspection device. Customized configurations and technical upgrades are also possible.

Anwendungsbeispiel: Stoll electronic

Wenn Qualität das A und O ist

Die Firma Stoll electronic GmbH fertigt Baugruppen für elektronische Steuergeräte und Industrieanwendungen, hauptsächlich für das traditionsreiche Mutterunternehmen, den Strickmaschinenhersteller STOLL. Als EMS-Dienstleister fertigt Stoll electronic Leiterplatten im unteren bis mittleren Volumenbereich und lässt diese mit dem AOI-System von GÖPEL electronic prüfen.
