Unitron Group invests in Viscom AOI
Unitron Group BV has recently made an investment in a new Viscom S2088 AOI machine for its production department in IJzendijke, in the Dutch province of Zeeland..
The investment will allow the company to offer its customers - who are mainly in the medical sector - the necessary guarantees on a product that meets the highest inspection standards. It goes without saying that the further miniaturisation of components and the higher density of products make it necessary to inspect PCBAs fully automatically. Not only the presence, polarity and position of components, but also (and especially) the soldering quality must be guaranteed. The use of a machine with very high inspection accuracy and side angle cameras is essential for this. “The past year we’ve made several investments in new production equipment. "says Ard-Jan Hamelink, COO at Unitron Group, in a press release. ”With this new investment in AOI, we once again prove that we want to go for the best and highest possible quality assurance.” “A standalone unit was sufficient for our purposes, but we did not want to compromise on quality, ”adds Mario Steel, Production Manager at Unitron Group BV. “After comparing and testing a number of manufacturers, we selected Viscom because it undoubtedly scored best in the inspection results, simplicity of programming and the overall concept of machine and organization.” The Viscom S2088-II can integrate up to 8 side cameras in addition to the standard high resolution top down camera. Because of this it can inspect components and soldering from all angles. “I am happy to welcome Unitron Group into our customer team, and provide them all necessary support with the integration of the machine in their production process,” says Tom Van Tongelen, CEO of Smd-Tec, distributor of Viscom in the Benelux. "We firmly believe in the advanced technology and added value that Viscom offers to the Benelux market and see the install base in our region grow enormously.”
