Gen3 to showcase MEK's In Line Bottom Side PCB Inspection at Southern Manufacturing & Electronics
27 January 2015

Gen3 Systems will be showcasing Mek's (Marantz Business Electronics) SpectorBOX “Bottom-Up” 3D Modular AOI system at Southern Manufacturing & Electronics. The system replaces traditional board flipping alternatives in less space and at lower cost.

Optimised for the inspection of Wave & Selective soldering of THT & SMT components, SpectorBOX is designed to inspect PCB’s inside solder frames directly from the conveyor system. With its totally new mechanical platform, it is the only modular AOI in the market that can be equipped with 9 cameras, including an optional Z-axis moveable head to precisely position and focus for varying PCB distance and warpage. The XY drive gantry with ball screw mechanics delivers high speed inspection while maintaining high accuracy and precision. Specially coated shafts deliver quiet operation and minimise wear to virtually eliminate maintenance and calibration requirements. With its general purpose I/O,SpectorBOX can be simply interfaced with existing or new conveyor systems.

100% simultaneous inspection can be accomplished with two SpectorBOX platform modules combined for bottom and top sides, incorporating up to 18 cameras. Board sizes up to 550x520 mm (21.7” x 20.5”) can be accommodated.

Gen3 will also be exhibiting their award winning product, The Gensonic Stencil Cleaning System, and Distributed product Optilia W30x HD Camera System.
