GOEPEL electronics: Faster Inspection from All Directions

Reading time ( words)

GOEPEL electronics now provides even faster 360° inspection of components and solder joints in the AOI systems BasicLine and AdvancedLine. The improved software enables remarkable savings of time and higher fault detection.

Thanks to newly developed optimization algorithms a significant increase in speed for the whole test procedure is now possible. Time savings of up to 40 % can be achieved by using multiple angled-view inspections from different directions. This development is now available in all AOI systems of the type BasicLine and AdvancedLine. For already installed systems a software update is available.

The angled-view module “Chameleon” offers a large field of view with excellent image quality at a viewing angle of 45°. The angled-view inspection with a rotation step size of 1° especially allows evaluating solder joints hidden by other components. The error detection is increased even in critical situations on assemblies that were insufficiently inspected so far. Different types of lighting combined with intelligent test functions here are the basis for maximum fault coverage and minimal conspicuousness.

Sustainably Clean

06/08/2023 | Barry Matties, I-Connect007
As the definition of sustainably evolves in the industry, one thing is clear: Process control plays a large role in any definition. Creating a stable process reduces the potential overuse of cleaning materials and increases yields, thereby reducing scrap, and helping the sustainability effort. I recently talked with Tom Forsythe, executive vice president of KYZEN, about the cleaning process and automated bath control.

Carol Handwerker Appointed to NIST Advisory Committee

06/06/2023 | Michelle Te, I-Connect007
We often hear words and phrases that naturally go together: Salt and pepper, touch and go, trace and space. When it comes to the work of IPC member Carol Handwerker, however, the collocations are much more nuanced, deeper, and have greater significance. You’re more likely to think of phrases such as standards and technology, lead-free and solder, or advanced packaging and heterogeneous integration. These are just some examples of Carol’s lifelong work in materials engineering, involvement with governing bodies, and a forward-thinking approach to electronics manufacturing that has spanned more than three decades.

Slash Sheets and Material Selection

06/01/2023 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
Doug Sober helped pioneer the development of IPC’s first slash sheets in 1996 for IPC-4101, Specification for Base Materials for Rigid and Multilayer Printed Boards and we asked him to discuss slash sheets—what they are, what they are not, and why PCB designers might benefit from an IPC materials guide developed specifically for designers.
