Hanover, August 2016 – Viscom AG has successfully proven itself in a benchmark for automatic optical inspection (AOI) and remains the preferred supplier to the Automotive Group of the Continental Corporation for the important printed circuit board inspection area.
The official notification of the successful selection came at the end of April at the SMT Hybrid Packaging trade fair: Viscom is listed as worldwide AOI supplier for Continental.
This news resulted from a comprehensive evaluation involving several competitors which had taken place in summer 2015. During the intensive eight-week test at the Continental plant in Sibiu (Romania), Viscom was able to convincingly prove its technology. Further tests and an audit at Viscom headquarters in Hanover-Badenstedt completed the benchmark activities.
Peter Krippner, Vice President of Serial Products at Viscom AG: "We are extremely pleased that Continental acknowledges our claims to technological leadership and customer orientation. All the Viscom employees stand behind this concept with their full commitment."
Viscom sees this as further incentive to convince with innovative peak technology in the future as well.
