Collaboration automates THT inspection
The integration of the Mek SpectorBOX with Haprotec’s automated production lines will enhance the quality and capabilities of Automated Assembly lines with AOI for THT.. Hands free Inspection of THT Components, Placement, Pin-In-Hole as well as Selective and Wave soldering is now possible. In addition, these automated lines can seamlessly integrate Track and Trace and MES systems including XML and RFID data transport.
Henk Biemans, Managing Director of Mek Europe commented “One of the major challenges in electronics assembly today is the ever-increasing need for traceability. Customers demand more automated quality control procedures and track & trace data collection from every individual step of the process, whilst maximising production efficiency and yield, and minimising human intervention and production cost. Although THT manufacturing has traditionally relied on manual assembly, the complete integration of AOI into THT lines allows users to register quality information for each product in an automated, hands free, smart factory format.”
“We are delighted to partner with Mek and to provide high-quality, fully modular AOI” added Christian Happ, Director of Haprotec. “The integration of Mek SpectorBOX with Haprotec automated production lines will bring together the best of THT AOI and automation
