Marantz Unveils New AOI Platform
Expandable AOI platform.
Eindhoven, Netherlands — Marantz Business Electronics has introduced its iSpector 350 model — part of the company's brand new AOI platform supporting comprehensive inspection of PC boards, including SMT and THT components, reflow and wave solder joints, and solder paste. Using the company's Synthetic Imaging, this new platform reportedly delivers the industry's best defect balance ratio and fast programming times in a uniquely upgradeable package. Ranging from entry level desk-top to fully in-line applications, the new AOI system is suitable for PC boards up to 350 x 250mm in size. Traditional AOI machines are plagued with the problem that truly useful new product inspection programs require too much programming time for today's high mix, quick turn manufacturing environments. The new system is programmable either through its extensive component library or with a Golden Board, and includes a Prototype mode for 1st off inspection. In addition, current Marantz users can immediately utilize all of their exiting programs as Model 22X software is fully iSpector compatible.

The new platform is designed to grow with its users, including upgradeable lighting. The desktop configuration will be upgradeable to fully in-line operation, made especially convenient by its overhead gantry design that carries a high resolution, high speed video camera and provides easy access to PC boards.
