New INSPECTIS Overlay Assisted Inspection (“OAI”) Launches

Solna, Sweden – The fastest and most accurate technique for the human eye and mind to detect defects is through visual comparison of graphic images. Defects that otherwise might be overlooked become immediately apparent, which is why INSPECTIS AB has developed the concept of Overlay Assisted Inspection, or OAI, for its advanced digital camera inspection systems.

[read more=”Read More” less=”Read Less”]

The new INSPECTIS OAI (easily remembered due to its similarity to AOI) leverages INSPECTIS’ recently-released new, more powerful software package version 5.0 incorporating the new Overlay Software feature. This feature uses ‘Compare Windows’, for example, where the operator can compare a live image to a reference picture or compare 2-4 still images to each other.

With INSPECTIS OAI, a live image can be overlaid  on a reference picture with timer-controlled interval display. It’s an efficient tool for identifying missing components, wrong polarity, misplacements and other defects on assembled PCBs. New overlay features include a built-in DXF creator and an editor for producing scaled overlay graticules. The user can create a DXF file from an object by optical edge detection, plus edit, draw patterns, shapes, add text and overlay on a live image. Save in DXF or PNG format and display as a Digital Graticule on the live image.

INSPECTIS’ OAI Package includes a new dedicated stand for quick precision alignment of boards. It’s a simple and  efficient system that can be used with INSPECTIS FHD or UHD (4K)  microscopes for the full range of magnification possibilities.

The new OAI package was a popular visit at the recent PRODUCTRONICA show and will be on display at IPC/APEX 2020 upcoming, in booth #3431.

INSPECTIS Launches HD-028-L, X-Y Floating Board with Position Lock

Solna, Sweden – The new HD-028-L from INSPECTIS AB is an innovative X-Y Floating Board with a position locking mechanism. The HD-028-L provides smooth lateral movement of inspection objects (SMT PCBs, medical devices) under a microscope or INSPECTIS high-performance video microscope inspection systems, and the mechanical position locking mechanism provides maximum stability by preventing accidental movement of the part or floating table during examination.

[read more=”Read More” less=”Read Less”]

In making the announcement, Alistair Gooch, Marketing Manager, stated, “The locking mechanism ensures that the object under inspection will remain perfectly immobile during, say, photography, or shared viewing with other colleagues.”

“When we designed this standard version, we built in some inertia to prevent the board from drifting when not mechanically locked. However, some of our customers working with fine components wanted to have an even lighter (lower inertia) feel. Consequently, we have sent the boards to our expert tuning technicians to produce just the touch needed. As a result, the HD-028-L-S Floating Board Extra Low Friction with Position Lock is also available on request.”
The working surface is covered by a high-friction antistatic mat that keeps the inspection object in place. 4 slots are available for attaching optional magnetic pegs (HD-128 Magnetic pegs (4x) or custom-made fixtures and holders. The board itself is made of high quality antistatic coated material.

INSPECTIS Launches ‘Game-Changer’ 4K Ultra HD Digital Microscope

Advanced U30/U30s Raises Video Inspection to New Levels

Solna, Sweden – INSPECTIS AB announces a new generation of the U30 series digital microscopes. The U30s, U30 and U30s EWD versions offer more than twice the magnification (x168 with +10 macro lens) of the current U10 series, raising video inspection to new levels.

[read more=”Read More” less=”Read Less”]

The new U30 will be on exhibit at SMTAI 2018 in Booth #723 (Ascentech). In making the announcement, Alistair Gooch, Marketing Manager, said, “The U30 Series really brings the ‘wow!’ factor to the INSPECTIS line. See this and you won’t want FHD anymore! It’s not a replacement for our U10, which remains the ideal choice for less demanding magnification needs, but this is the best tool for electronics manufacturers where very fine features demand more. The extra clarity achieved with 8 rather than 2 mega pixels is more apparent and visceral when studying board failures, for example.”
The U30 features fast responsive auto focus, he adds, making hand held inspection remarkably easy, allowing, an operator to quickly see, for example, if 01005 components are set properly.
“We house the new camera in both the current form factors (all in one, standalone) and with same options for full ESD protection and light pointers. For those needing a longer working distance, 500mm and 1000mm extended working distance versions are available.”
U30 is fully compatible with current versions of all existing accessories (stands, ring lights, extra macro lenses, advanced controller) plus all the newly-released control accessories and Inspectis software editions. “In short, the Inspectis U30 and U30s digital microscopes can significantly reduce the time you spend on inspecting parts when compared to other optical visual systems.”
The Inspectis 4K Digital Microscopes are available in two basic models: U30, an all-in-one, plug-and-play system with integrated aluminum stand and built-in adjustable white LED illumination, and U30s, a stand-alone, totally configurable system with a variety of mounting solutions. Select between any of Inspectis’ Boom type, XY-type or Articulated arm stands.

INSPECTIS AB Launches HD-150 Combined Tilt and Telescopic Table

Solna, Sweden – Complete and comprehensive precision inspection of parts and assemblies is easier and more precise when the objects under inspection can be inspected from various angles and heights, not just straight up and down.

[read more=”Read More” less=”Read Less”]

 

That’s why Inspectis AB has introduced the HD-150 Combined Tilt and Telescope Table, so that an object such as an SMT/PCB assembly or a Medical Device can be tilted up to 30⁰ in all directions, and at various user-adjustable heights under the Inspectis video microscope camera. The HD-150 is a universal solution, usable with any of the Inspectis all-in-one cameras (C12 Series, U10 and the new F30) when using additional +2, +3, and +5 diopter macro magnification lenses.
In making the announcement, Alistair Gooch, Marketing Manager, said, “The more 3D an object under inspection is, the more important it is to be able to tilt the object whilst holding it firmly and without movement or vibration. In addition to tilt capability, the HD-150 includes the popular HD-050 Telescopic feature, which provides 103mm vertical displacement. Combined with up to 30 degrees of user-adjustable tilt, the HD-150 provides a truly wide range of positioning flexibility for objects under inspection.”
“Often, having a camera at a fixed position has the advantages of simplicity or stability. However, with a camera at a fixed height, should magnification be required beyond the capability of the internal optical set up, external macro lenses may be needed. Unfortunately, the working distance is reduced proportionally to the power of the optic used. Thus, it becomes necessary to narrow the distance between the object under inspection and the lens to achieve the optimal working distance.”
The HD-150 features a 3-stage telescopic post that provides convenient height steps and allows step-less height adjustment between 52 to 155 mm. The object table has the same dimensions and format as the
popular HD-029 Tilt table and uses the same proven high quality anti-static coated material as other Inspectis accessories, and the surface of the tilt board is covered with a high-friction antistatic mat to keep the object under inspection firmly in place. Four (4) slots are available for attaching Inspectis HD-128 magnetic pegs or custom-made fixtures and holders.
