Hanover, Germany, February 2020 – Viscom Inc. – the U.S. subsidiary of Viscom AG, Germany – has announced that it was awarded a 2020 CIRCUITS ASSEMBLY'S NPI Award in the category of Test and Inspection – AOI for the inspection system S3088 DT. The award was presented to the company during a Tuesday, Feb. 4, 2020 ceremony that took place at the electronics trade fair IPC APEX EXPO in San Diego, California.
The S3088 DT is configured in its standard version for use in automatic optical inspection (3D AOI) and for dual-track handling. The system features a unique combination of price sensitivity, efficiency, speed and technical performance that meets all the requirements of large-scale mass production today, including full connection to state-of-the-art Industry 4.0 interfaces. The S3088 DT ensures repeatably reliable inspection of 03015 components at an impressive throughput rate.
The design of the S3088 DT has several advantages when space is tight in the production area. The monitor has been integrated into the housing and the keyboard is retractable. The footprint is therefore comparably small. Furthermore, the system adjusts to varying track widths. It can also be used as a single track system and is then able to inspect larger PCBs. In addition to 3D AOI, Viscom is also offering configurations of the S3088 DT for 3D SPI, CCI and Underfill Inspection.
Premiering in 2008, the CIRCUITS ASSEMBLY'S New Product Introduction (NPI) Awards program is an annual celebration of product excellence in electronics assembly. Premier products based on the finest examples of creative advancement in technology are chosen by a distinguished panel of industry experts. The CIRCUITS ASSEMBLY'S NPI Award is now the third award for the S3088 DT. Last year, the machine won a Vision Award and an EM Asia Innovation Award in China.
