With its inspection systems, Viscom offers electronics manufacturers worldwide comprehensive inspection coverage – from 3D SPI and 3D AOI to 3D AXI and 3D MXI.

At SMTA Mexico, 25―26 October 2023 in Guadalajara, their networking will be a particular focus. Visitors to Booth #1517 can learn more about Viscom's digital platform vConnect, which has won a GLOBAL Technology Award in the ‘Software Production’ category.

In multiple regions in Mexico, automotive and aerospace sectors use Viscom's intelligently networked systems.

"We continue to grow from year to year in this important country for us. Nearshoring and trade agreements with the US undoubtedly also have a major influence on this," says Jesper Lykke, CEO of Viscom, the US subsidiary of Viscom AG.

Vice President of Viscom, Juan Briceño, added: "Our team of 15 employees is exclusively responsible for customers in Mexico and that region from our office in Zapopan. We have been providing local service and support for over 15 years now."

With ‘The Hermes Standard’ (IPC HERMES 9852) or the IPC CFX (Connected Factory Exchange) communication standard, Viscom integrates manufacturer-independent solutions into its inspection systems. At its headquarters in Germany, Viscom furthermore develops and implements its own advanced applications related to the networking of important processes. The spectrum ranges from closed-loop functions of the SPI systems to simple merging of results from all inspection gates to multiline verification and statistically supported control of product quality.

Now, Viscom's latest solution for smart networking is set to make greater inroads in Mexico and other markets worldwide: the modular platform vConnect. It creates an optimal environment and infrastructure for comprehensively monitoring machine processes, increasing plant safety, evaluating information collected, and presenting it in graphically appealing dashboards. Extensive data is available via fully configurable menus, which can be selected according to the requirements of operators, service personnel, or management.

In addition, vConnect opens the possibility for very efficient monitoring and administration of the computer infrastructure, allowing Viscom experts to quickly decipher anomalies at customers’ sites and intervene immediately if necessary. IT security and back-up services can be controlled centrally. This applies both to the inspection systems and to the classification and programming stations.

Another component of the award-winning software is scalable storage solutions that can be implemented both locally and via cloud connections, enabling the targeted processing of large volumes of different data. Regarding inspection results, Viscom offers vSPC 2.0, enabling a cross-site integration of statistical process control in vConnect.

The GLOBAL Technology Award for vConnect is proudly displayed at the North American HQ of Viscom in Duluth, GA. The awards are hosted by international industry magazine Global SMT & Packaging, and since winning last year the modular platform has evolved even further.

In vConnect, e.g., one can quickly get an overview of the availability and performance of all Viscom inspection systems and associated peripheral devices in use.
