ScanPLACE provides a sophisticated and user-friendly alternative to complex CAM software packages and inaccurate, time consuming manual inspection and programming methods that cost assembly houses productivity, time and money.
Designed to increase PCB assembly productivity, ScanPLACE is a fully integrated, off-line programming, inspection and measurement workstation.
Using a calibrated, high-resolution, color imaging system, ScanPLACE produces assembly programs and process documentation for Surface Mount, Insertion, Test, Inspection and Dispensing machines.

In-Bound Board and Stencil Inspection
ScanPLACE increases production efficiency by using off-line comparison of actual PCBs and Stencils against Gerber files and/or a “golden board.” Pre-production check verifies revisions against each other before the first production run. Eliminate surprises.
Build Component Libraries
Scan a component to automatically calculate and register the following information:
- Lead Pitch, Lead Size, Body Size
- Lead Groups, Pick Up Location, etc.
- Specific Vision Data outputs for Fuji SMD3 and Siemens SIPLACE
- Generic Vision ASCII files for other suppliers
Off-line Inspection & Measurement
ScanPLACE uses a combination of editing functions to ensure that all information has been inserted correctly. This off-line verification significantly reduces first article setup time. Overlay CAD and/or Gerber data and compare:
- Loaded Boards
- Bare Boards
- Wet Glue / Solder Paste/ Epoxy
First Article Inspection
ScanPLACE increases productivity with the ability to scan the first article and compare it to the CAD data.
Why Use ScanPLACE?
Flexible: Use one workstation to produce assembly files for multi-vendor Surface Mount, Insertion, Test, Inspection and Dispensing machines.
Powerful: Use one workstation to inspect stencils, screens and bare or loaded boards.
Accurate: Find and eliminate errors with Loaded PCBs, Wet Solder Paste, Glue, etc.
Fast: Decrease programming time from days to hours.
Easy: PC based system.
