Advanced High Speed Inspection and Measurement Technology

1、Shadowless Phase Measuring Profilometry

  • ATHENA Series 10MP 8+4 Projector 3D AOI inspects 100% of the PCB in 2D and 3D. Combining the 2 technologies gives a complete optical inspection of a PCB shadow free and low false calls maintaining a high flexibility in system functionality.

2High Speed Inspection Technology

  • ATHENA High Speed Option inspects in 41cm sq. per sec. by utilizing an advanced network of more powerful GPU, controller boards and our proprietary developed 10MP 15um 180fps camera with telecentric lens.

3High Component Inspection Technology

  • ATHENA new 8+4 Way option Projection Technology provides 100% 3D inspection of 27mm component and this is the first in the AOI field. With optional Z axis, the maximum component height in 3D inspection is up to 60mm.

4、Shado w Free 3D Technology

  • Eliminates shadow issues on highly populated PCBs and tall components.

5Optical Character Recognition

  • Recognizes component part characters by using color and pattern algorithms. Ability to add & modify OCR font to optimize inspection condition.

63D Solder & Height Measurement

  • Using our advanced 3D technology, the ATHENA is able to take inspection to levels that are limited by conventional 2D systems. Adding solder height, volume and part coplanarity inspection provides enhanced defect detection capabilities.

73D Lead Inspection

  • 3D measurement algorithms enable the ATHENA to measure lead height and volume of solder proving full-high quality 3D images.

82D RGB Algorithms

  • Through the RGB distinguish, operator can easily confirm the failures such as cold joint and lift lead.

An accurate and convenient Inspection by using Side Camera

Four high-definition cameras on the side and a dedicated algorithm optimized for both use and side inspection is available for real-time inspection.

  • 4-Way Side Camera (Option)
  • Possible to detect inside bridge which it cannot detect with Top camera
  • Possible to detect Connector inside area
  • Convenient Teaching by using existing Algorithm.

Ease of programming (Auto Teach Function)

  • Advanced 3D imaging technology allows us to measure and recognize the geometric shapes of PCB components and automatically link them to our built in parts library.
