SMD Inspection of PCBs using AOI system Advanced Line

Advanced Line

The inline AOI system for flexible integration opportunities.

The Advanced Line AOI system’s decisive advantage is the multitude of opportunities for inline integration into the production process. The system can be utilized at each position in a PCB production line. No requirements or specifications will remain unfulfilled as your boards can be transported in each direction.

The Advanced Line can be applied inline and also as a stand-alone system.

Additionally, the system captivates through opportunities with camera and illumination configurations. The sum of all components and parameters incl. high resolution and inspection safety guarantees the highest quality for your mounted PCBs.


  • high throughput amd frequently changing product groups
  • SMD connection through technology next to special press-fit technology
  • difficult visibility of solder joints of QFN components and attachments


  • high cycle rate due to inline capability
  • angled-view inspection with 360° fault detection
  • easy operation and fast inspection program creation with PILOT AOI software


  • maximum fault detection
  • unique illumination from infrared to ultraviolet
  • patented 360° inspection in 1° steps at constant resolution and definition

Extension Opportunities

  • rotatory angled-view inspection
  • laser height measurement
  • add-on camera with microscopic resolution

Integration Solutions

  • individual integration solutions (transport direction, inline verification station, usage of serial numbers)
  • extensive data interfaces to quality management and traceability systems (ZVEI standard, iTAC, customised)


  • outstanding ease of use with the system software PILOT AOI
  • highest fault detection through different inspection methods as well as individually expandable inspection functions and library entries
  • maximum inspection reliability through verification of the inspection depth and monitoring of defect detection

Industry 4.0 and MES
