Electronic Component Inspection

The Machine Vision System detects defects in electronic components. Base plates for an electronic manufacturer’s components were inspected manually, which was a time consuming process with the potential for human error.

MVC fully automated this process that communicates directly to customer’s web service over Ethernet. Components are now imaged & inspected for all inspection attributes, eliminating human error from the process. Fail safe controls are in place to ensure defective plates are not permitted to pass down stream in the manufacturing process. MVC’s system revolutionized the inspection methodology & ultimately cut customer costs.
