Solder Inspection

July 30, 2009


The VT-S700 in-line system for soldered component inspection uses a telecentric lens with a two-megapixel camera to reduce image distortion and improve inspection accuracy at the edges of its field of view. The system uses the company’s three-color highlight system that illuminates the printed circuit board in a 360-degree dome. The system’s three-charged-coupled device (CCD) camera enhances solder shape recognition accuracy. The systems also include color enhancing capability to more accurately identify lead-free solder joints, auto-teaching modes to automatically extract components based on model pattern data, integrated graphical operator interface, and logic customization allowing the system to adapt to future changes in component shapes and solder types.
