November 8, 2021

Omron Automation Americas, a global provider of AOI, AXI, SPI and other advanced automation systems, continues to introduce technologies for perfecting critical inspection and quality-assurance processes for the electronics manufacturing industry. Omron recently launched the PCB inspection system “VT-S10 series,” which features an industry-first imaging technique and AI to best automate the high-precision inspection process for electronic assemblies, maximize performance and minimize skill-level requirements.

In order to overcome the limitation of present-day 3D AOI technology, Omron’s patented approach combines the most advanced illumination, sophisticated image processing and full 3D measurement data to yield the highest-quality solder inspection process possible. The shadow and secondary reflection impacts common to 3D AOI have been eliminated through new hardware developments like quad, MPS (multi-phase shift) projectors that allow for stable inspection across the PCBA. Combining the high-precision solder shape reconstruction from Omron’s new and advanced 3D AOI system along with Omron’s industry-leading, high-speed 3D CT AXI capabilities, helps improve the overall quality of the manufacturing process, achieve zero-defect products and realize significant labour savings.

By controlling everything from AI image acquisition to model creation and testing, Omron provides end-to-end support to address all concerns about the introduction of AI that caters to production floor needs. The new VT-S10 series 3D AOI was designed with Omron’s 5-Zero philosophy in mind. This unique, AI-driven initiative represents a development roadmap that ensures Omron continues to implement solutions that are more intelligent, integrated and interactive while driving to meet the real-world goals of a modern, Smart Factory. This 5-Zero philosophy approach means that each new Omron innovation was specifically developed to target improvements in one or more of these key areas:

  •    –   Zero PCB Design Constraints
  •    –   Zero False Calls & Escapes
  •    –   Zero Operation & Programming
  •    –   Zero Downtime
  •    –   Zero Defects

Industry professionals interested in learning more about Omron’s 5-Zero philosophy, new VT-S10 series 3D AOI or Omron’s additional, full line or innovative inspection and factory automation solutions are encouraged to visit the Omron Inspection Systems division website at https://inspection.omron.us.
