Many soldered connections can only be reliably checked with X-ray inspection. Viscom's X8011 PCB high-resolution manual X-ray inspection system was developed especially for these tasks. Now electronics manufacturers can draw on Viscom's first-class automatic analysis routines of the X7056 family of automatic X-ray inspection systems with this offline solution as well.
Viscom has developed a totally new camera module. The new XM camera module will be introduced at the SMT/Hybrid/Packaging Exhibition and Conference, April 16-18, 2013 at the Messezentrum in Nuremberg, Germany.
Viscom AG has developed a totally new camera module. The new XM camera module was introduced for the first time at the IPC APEX EXPO that took place February 19-21, 2013 at the San Diego Convention Center in California.
Viscom has continued to expand its market share in the field of small and medium-sized companies. In 2011 alone, approximately 160 inspection systems were delivered to German customers with one to ten SMT lines. 80 percent of those were companies with revenues under € 10 million.
Viscom today announced plans to launch the X8011 PCB with HARAN – a brand new linkage to the verification station for X8011 PCB X-ray inspection systems. Now, analysis results can be verified with ease and unspecified defects can be automatically pinpointed and re-examined in detail.
Viscom AG announces that it achieved AEO certification and is now regarded as an official Authorized Economic Operator in the European Union. On September 5, 2012, the customs office granted the popular certificate to the Hannover-based manufacturer of optical and X-ray inspection systems.
Viscom recorded an exceptionally positive financial year for 2011. Beginning immediately in the first quarter of 2011, Viscom managed to utilize the high growth potential of the domestic and international markets. Both order booking and revenue developed extraordinarily well as early as the first half of the year. Performance through the remainder of the year also was very positive.
In SMT electronic assembly production, 3-D SPI has established itself as the additional inspection gate to complement optical or X-ray inspection. The key task is detecting impermissible printed pads in terms of volume, form, smearing and offset. In addition to providing defect detection, the Viscom 3-D SPI can accomplish much more. The SPI-AOI-Uplink function links paste inspection and post-reflow inspection results for both easy and effective process control as well as improved classification of AOI results.
Viscom proudly announces that it will exhibit vVision, its recently introduced AOI software in Booth 1H36 at the upcoming NEPCON Show, scheduled to take place April 25-27, 2012, at the World Expo Convention & Exhibition Center in Shanghai. The new user interface from Viscom revolutionizes inspection system handling. The modern design is self-explanatory and quickly guides even the inexperienced operator to a highly capable inspection program.
Viscom proudly announces that it will exhibit its recently introduced 3-D SPI system in Booth #2629 at the upcoming IPC APEX Expo, scheduled to take place February 28 - March 1, 2012 at the San Diego Convention Center in California. The system is now available with the unique SPI-AOI Uplink feature that provides better defect detection during post-reflow AOI, ensuring the lowest false alarm rates.
Viscom AG has opened a branch in Tunisia. As part of an ongoing expansion of business locations, the new office will primarily secure fast, comprehensive support for Viscom's North African customers by providing, for example, a free hotline service that customers can utilize. In addition to the hotline, the branch will offer training and applications services, and carry out installations.
Viscom co-hosted an open house at its new applications center in Silicon Valley on Thursday, December 1, 2011. The move into Zero Defects International's (ZDI) newly acquired sales and service office will enable Viscom to continue to serve its customers in Silicon Valley and Northern California as well as the entire Western United States.
Marquardt GmbH relies on Viscom's AOI and AXI systems for electronics manufacturing. In order to further increase the efficiency of these inspection systems, the older systems have been upgraded with 8M technology, resulting in significant cycle time advantages. Since 2004, Viscom's S6055 and S6056 AOI systems, and X7056 AXI systems have been used in Marquardt's electronics manufacturing facilities. The company's assembly inspection is fully automatic – with both optical and X-ray inspection systems. This way, even demanding solder joints can be reliably checked.
Viscom AG, a leading supplier of AOI and AXI inspection systems in the electronics industry, will demonstrate fast in-line X-ray inspection with its X7056 in Hall A2, Stand 177 at the upcoming Productronica International Trade Fair, scheduled to take place November 15-18, 2011 at the New Munich Trade Fair Centre in Munich, Germany.
Viscom introduces the S2088-II desktop AOI inspection system to the US market. This new system is designed for automatic optical inspection of paste print, pre- and post-reflow and THT solder joints. The S2088-II now includes high-performance 8M camera technology with the same angled inspection and OnDemandHR function as Viscom's established inline systems. Faster loading/unloading and large PCB fixturing are two key advantages of the new system. The system will be on display in booth #326 at the upcoming SMTA International Conference & Exhibition, scheduled to take place October 18-19, 2011 at the Fort Worth Convention Center in Fort Worth, TX
Viscom AG, a leading supplier of AOI and AXI inspection systems in the electronics industry, is now working with SILGAL IBERICA S.L. as its new representative for the entire Iberian peninsula. SILGAL will represent Viscom throughout Spain and Portugal. With the company's expertise in electronics production – from paste print to the soldering and refinement of products – SILGAL also is a competent contact partner where investment in AOI and AXI systems are concerned.
Viscom AG profited from the growth potential of both the German and the international markets in the first half of 2011. The company's increased willingness to invest in the main sales markets, investments in new products and cutting-edge technologies as well as its growing service offering were reflected positively in Viscom Group's books.
