GOEPEL 3D AOI: Affordable ease-of-use for low volume and power for high volume

Join this webinar to learn about the advantages and disadvantages of different 3D automated optical inspection (AOI) technologies and configurations relative to their production needs and how time and resources can be saved and false calls reduced in their specific production processes.

There are numerous suppliers of 3D Automated Optical Inspection (AOI) systems and just as many concepts for implementing the technology. But how can a manufacturer - whether large or small, high or low volume or mix - find the best solution for their specific needs? This webinar compares some of these concepts and details the advantages and disadvantages of different configurations. The creation of test programs is a very time and resource consuming necessity for both large and small production runs, especially in high mix applications. The second part of the webinar will show how intelligent software can do this almost effortlessly. This saves valuable time and resources in the manufacturing process, making the use of 3D AOI economical from the second assembly onward. The third part of the webinar deals with the advantages of networked inspection systems. The presenter will explain the possibilities for communication and data acquisition, whereby false calls can be further reduced with each assembly inspected through active tuning for process variations, maximizing efficiency in the production process.

Key Takeaways

  • Learn how combining 2D and 3D AOI technology in a single unit optimizes coverage and detection while minimizing false calls
  • Understand how highly automated test program creation can dramatically reduce time and resources required for effective 3D AOI application
  • Discover that 3D AOI is available and affordable for a wide range of manufacturers
