PNC Inc. Invests in MIRTEC 3D AOI System


Reading time ( words)

PNC Inc. has recently come to an agreement with MIRTEC to purchase the MV-6 OMNI 3D AOI system. To be used in their assembly division, this purchased has bolstered their state-of-the-art equipment list even further.

The award-winning MV-6 OMNI 3D AOI machine is configured with MIRTEC’s exclusive OMNI-VISION 3D Inspection Technology which combines our 15-megapixel CoaXPress camera technology with MIRTEC’s revolutionary digital multi-frequency Quad Moiré 3D system in a newly designed cost-effective platform. MIRTEC’s 15-megapixel CoaXPress vision system is a proprietary camera system designed and manufactured by MIRTEC for use with our complete product range of 3D inspection systems. MIRTEC’s digital multi-frequency Quad Moiré Technology, provides true 3D inspection using a total of four programmable digital Moiré Projectors to yield precise height measurement data used to detect lifted component and lifted lead defects as well as solder volume post reflow.

Fully configured, the new MIRTEC MV-6 OMNI machines feature four 10-megapixel side-view cameras in addition to the 15-megapixel top-down camera. There is little doubt that this new technology has set the standard by which all other inspection equipment is measured. MIRTEC will have two MV-6 OMNIs on display, one configured with a 10um lens for high-performance applications and the other with a 15um lens for high-speed applications.

“With the volume of orders we have been receiving and the growth PNC has shown in 2017, we thought this purchase was the right step forward for next year,” explain PNC Inc. President Sam Sangani. The MV-6 was recently awarded numerous honors for its performance across the globe. This, in addition to other key contributors such as its efficiency and flexibility were some of the reasons PNC’s leadership decided on making this their next equipment purchase.

Comparing Soldering Results of ENIG and EPIG Post-steam Exposure

09/11/2019 | Jon Bengston and Richard DePoto, Uyemura International USA
Electroless nickel immersion gold (ENIG) is now a well-regarded finish used to enhance and preserve the solderability of copper circuits. Electroless palladium immersion gold (EPIG), meanwhile, is a new surface finish also for enhancing and preserving solderability—but with the advantage of eliminating electroless nickel from the deposit layer. This feature has become increasingly important with the increasing use of high-frequency PCB designs whereby nickel’s magnetic properties are detrimental.

Solder Mask Evolves into a Truly Additive Process

09/09/2019 | John Fix, Taiyo America Inc.
The 5G era is creating quite a bit of work for many PCB engineers as the materials required to keep up with the speed, frequency, and latency requirements need to be defined and qualified. Solder mask, for example, now becomes a truly additive process. Read on to find out how and why.

Selecting the Proper Flex Coverlayer Material

09/06/2019 | Dave Lackey, American Standard Circuits
Coverlayers are polymer materials used to cover and protect the copper traces of the flex circuit product. There are a number of different options available for protecting the circuits, and they serve different design requirements in terms of cost, performance, and flexural endurance optimization. When specifying the choice, it is critical to call out not just the type of coverlayer material but also the thickness requirement. This can be very important in certain types of constructions, especially when a flex circuit will experience dynamic flexing during use.
