We are the provider of the world’s leading inspection, measurement, and data creation system since 1990. Our multi-purpose inspection system includes the ability to capture calibrated, high resolution color or monochrome images. We can image, inspect, measure and generate data for numerous parts including stencils, screens, bare Printed Circuit Boards (PCB), film, artwork, photo-tools, tooling, carriers, balls or bumps, wirebonds, printed or dispensed materials, and much more. Basically, if something is flat, we can scan it! Once imaged, our system can then overlay original CAD data or Golden Part images to perform automated inspection using a variety of powerful algorithms.
Inspect incoming parts, and each step of your value add to minimize scrap and rework. Use our system for New Product Introduction as well routine process setup and control.
Independent verification of critical features on production parts is mandatory for ensuring high quality and low defect rates. Even one defect can be very costly due to scrap, rework or even final product recall. Our systems permit both automated inspection as well as high accuracy measurement on the same low cost, PC based platform.
100% inspection is required with today’s complex parts as feature size and tolerances continue to get smaller and densities increase.
Internally developed software coupled with our low-cost vision platform and NIST certified calibration equipment ensures that our system is a solution that is custom tailored for your application. Our hardware and software have been specifically designed to maintain an excellent price-performance ratio, maximize your ROI and provide a unique set of tools for effective and efficient inspection & measurement.
100% traceability and SPC data for your quality certification and compliance requirements.
Over our thirty years in business, we have continuously improved our process to support cutting edge technology. Our ability to inspect relative to fabrication data, original design data, and/or a golden part sets our system apart. In addition, the same system can also generate fabrication data that exactly matches the substrate.
A Case Study
One of 3,200 capacitor apertures on a low cost solder paste stencil caused a massive, very costly automobile recall. This micro defect was not caught by the stencil fabricator’s manual inspection method before the stencil was shipped. Nor was it caught by the stencil user through their manual inbound inspection or by their electrical test after the board was assembled, since there just was enough solder on the pad for the electrical test to pass. The final transmission control unit product failed in the field after about 6 months due to vibration and temperature variation. All of this could have been avoided by simply checking the stencil with a ScanCAD automated stencil inspection system immediately prior to placing the stencil into production.
Quality issues are unpredictable and expensive. A low cost system combined with a five minute process can save an enormous amount of money, time, and energy in the long run.
