MVP AOI Systems Upgrades EControls Production
Supra E AOI system.
Carlsbad, CA — Machine Vision Products (MVP) has shipped two Supra E automated optical inspection (AOI) systems to EControls, LLC, a leading control and instrumentation specialist. The sale was facilitated by Torenko & Associates, MVP's sales partner in the Southwest territories of the USA and Mexico. The AOI systems are were operational at EControls' San Antonio, Texas facility in February.

EControls is using the MVP systems to get better first pass yields, faster line speeds, less program maintenance and reliable customer support.

The Supra E is MVP's latest AOI system, and provides complete inspection capabilities ranging from 2-D paste inspection to pre-reflow, post-reflow and post-wave inspection capabilities. It provides real-time feedback of specific manufacturing process details. The heart of the system is metrology and, as a result, all data reported is measurement-based as opposed to comparative as in most other systems.

The Supra E system provides fast cycle times by using an unusual feature — flying technology (not start-stop) — and a high-speed image processing capability. In addition, the company now offers complete inspection program generation capability in less than two hours. These programs are ready to go directly into production without losing anything — such as solder joint inspection — which can happen with other systems.
