Using vision-integrated cobot system to detect quality issues in low-volume PCB assemblies
Although most PCBs are produced in large quantities, there is significant demand for multi-layer, high-density interconnected (HDI) boards that are used in certain critical subsystems and devices. Manufacturers of HDI PCBs cannot afford quality defects, yet they too often rely on manual inspections to detect errors.
One HDI PCB manufacturer asked Omron for help with developing a more efficient and reliable inspection process. Omron combined its FH Series vision system and TM Series collaborative robot to create a turnkey, fully integrated automated inspection solution that is accurate, affordable, and easy to set up in existing environments.
This solution provides the following benefits:
- Ensures accuracy by eliminating error-prone manual inspection processes
- Enables easy setup and integration with existing equipment
- Allows lines to run faster around the clock while minimizing quality issues
- Provides a full solution where one main platform handles all equipment, even from different suppliers
