GOEPEL electronic Launches New AOI Software Version with Enhanced 3D Capabilities


Reading time ( words)

Users of AOI and SPI systems from GOEPEL electronic can look forward to a software update. With the rollout, the system software PILOT AOI in the new version 6.5 will receive numerous smaller and larger improvements for test functions, program creation and optimizations.

A new function for 3D inspection at THT solder joints significantly increases the measurement accuracy at pins with the possibility of presetting the position as well as the minimum and maximum length of the pin. Similarly, measurements can be performed on pin solder joints, with minimum and maximum solder height and wetting preset. The THT test functions are integrated into the fully automatic test program creation with MagicClick. As a further feature, the measured value recordings are optimized by reducing possible interference, among other things. 

As a second major innovation, a 3D inspection of unpopulated PCB areas has been integrated into PILOT AOI version 6.5. This inspects for defects such as solder beads, solder splashes, lost and superfluous components. The defect detection is based on height differences. Interfering influences on the measurements, e.g. reflections on the PCB material or position imprints, therefore have no effect on the measurement results.

A new history with comparison function provides a better overview of changes to test programmes. This provides a version history with the option of restoring older project versions. The user can clearly and at a glance record the differences between two revisions. This provides detailed information about the user, workstation and software version.  

The new PILOT software version 6.5 is available for all 3D AOI and SPI system versions, both for SMD and THT inspection.

Automotive Initiatives Make Headway at IPC APEX EXPO

02/25/2022 | Tracy Riggan, IPC
A significant number of automotive activities made notable strides at this year’s IPC APEX EXPO. Several committees dedicated to creating and updating automotive addenda for existing IPC standards, like assembly processes, PCB fabrication, and high-voltage cable, met and were led by companies like Toyota, Bosch, Continental, and Elmatica. Automotive dedicated groups, like the Cold Joining/Press-fit Task Group, also met and discussed inclusions in its next planned revision.
