Bent Pin Inspection Machines

Bent Pin Inspection Machines

Fully automated high-speed vision inspection machines for the non-contact precision measurement of connectors, pins, components, backplanes and connector mouldings. Ideal for inspection of electronic control unit products, PCB interfaces and backplanes. Manual load, stand-alone inspection machines for low or medium batch production, or in-line process control for high speed lines.

Use non-contact automated optical inspection to check for bent, broken, crushed, smashed and pushed-in or pulled-out pins (x,y,z co-ordinates), plus inspection of the connector T-bars, mouldings and inserts with the same system. Check for both fatal failures (such as missing pins) and quality defects (bent pin, pins in the wrong position etc) with our high-precision vision inspection machines, ready-to-run for cased electronic units and non-cased boards. Improve quality control of PCB connector and press-fitted pins.

    More about electronics non-contact optical inspection solutions

    Why automated non-contact inspection is critical for the electronics industry.

    Machine vision is now a standard tool in the modern electronics manufacturing plant. Everything from semiconductor device manufacturing processes, such as wafer fabrication and integrated circuit (IC) packaging – through to PCB assembly, alignment and verification is checked using vision systems. Electronic hardware production can be made more efficient to handle faster production ramp ups and quick product changeovers, in these fast-moving manufacturing environments it’s critical that every product is 100% inspected during the electronics manufacturing process. This allows electronics manufacturers to deliver products on-time, and at the right quality level.

    Electronic manufacturers rely on IVS® vision inspection, AI-enabled deep learning, and our easy-to-use 2D and 3D vision technology to build and inspect semiconductors, printed circuit boards, electronic hardware, and consumer devices.

    How is AI-enabled deep learning vision systems used in the electronics industry?

    To allow electricity to pass through assembled printed circuit boards (PCBs), components must be precisely soldered. Interference and failure can be caused by the tiniest flaws. Defect detection is therefore essential. Nonetheless, the wide range of soldering defects—wrong settings, power changes in the welder, and uneven—appear differently to a vision system, not only due to their tiny but inherent variances, but also due to image difficulties like glare, which distort and change their presentation to the camera.

    Under difficult image quality conditions, any automated inspection system must be able to withstand significant part-to-part variance (for example, from a change in the solder settings). Without rules-based programming, deep learning-based methods can pin-point the region of interest and examine solder with significant part-to-part variation, which would be too time-consuming, tedious, or even impossible with traditional machine vision methods.

    After being trained on a sample collection of known “good” (pass) and “bad” (failed) labelled images, our deep learning tools for defect identification learns to recognise a range of soldering faults. The system creates a reference model of a solders typical appearance, as well as intolerable faults, based on images capture, which accounts for differences in appearance caused by imaging changes and glare. The AI deep learning system can adapt to the changes in the solder scene and make decisions automatically on where a solder lump sits in relation to the trained samples it has seen. The more the vision system sees, the better it gets at assessing the solder quality.

    This same principle of deep learning training can be applied to many applications in the electronics manufacturing industry, allowing more robust inspection, with greater yield returns and providing a system which get’s better with the more it sees!
