optical inspection
Get more with less, SMDVISIO is the first optical inspection machine which comes with a cost effective solution that goes beyond the simple inspection allowing a true semi-automatic workflow and reporting thanks to the comprehensive software that controls the machine:
  • Automatically creates reference pictures and data from manufacturing files
  • Save and reload master reference (project) information for quick achiving and recalling of customer's data
  • Easy guided magnification to match pictures against saved reference
  • Generates reports for Q.C. department, and for reporting to the customer

See magnified components in manual mode, also to adjust fiducial positions

title: automatic mode

Automatically scans the circuit board and takes shots of each component using the same file used for manufacturing. It can handle even multiple circuits on the same board.

SMDVISIO is a semiautomatic system for the optical inspection of SMD and PTH components on printed circuit boards.
The machine allows the simplification of the operations related to the inspection of circuit boards by simultaneously providing a magnified image of each mounted component, its data (code, value, mounting position & orientation) and a reference picture of its correct installation on the board. By comparing these information with the actual mounted component an operator can easily verify the correctness of the assembly.

The machine works on with any computer with Windows10 or higher, and requires two free USB 2 ports where two data-exchanging cables have to be connected in order to let the computer talk to the machine and viceversa. The machine has its own internal controller that receives the commands sent by the user by the mean of the provided computer software. To power the machine a 230V (or 120V for some other countries) 50/60Hz 6A source is required.

File compatibility SMDVISIO can read most of the manufacturing files commonly generated by CAM processors and used in pick-and-place machines.

LIVE MODE In the LIVE mode the SMDVISIO positions the camera on the component selected in the data table and reproduces the image with the data of the component under consideration.

SHOTS MODE In SHOTS mode the SMDVISIO automatically acquires the images of all the components in the data table and associates them with the component database. It is possible to recall the images that are reproduced alongside the data of the component under examination.

JOG MODE In JOG mode it is possible to move the camera using the arrow keys of the keyboard or with the arrow buttons of the graphic interface in order to easily inspect the circuit board. The minimum movement is 0.1mm, while with the SHIFT key combination the minimum displacement is 2mm. With the combination of the CTRL key the minimum displacement is 6mm. (The machine has a resolution of 0.03mm)

Image storage SMDVISIO can save the images associated to the database of the components in order to build an archive of all the circuit boards inspected.

Sample image comparison: SMDVISIO can create a reference file with the sample images of the first examined card.
These photos will be proposed alongside the magnified image of the component under inspection in order to allow the the operator to quickly and easily compare the two images.
