Omron Automation Americas, the global leader in automated optical inspection (AOI), automated x-ray inspection (AXI) and solder paste inspection (SPI), will introduce two new AOI systems at IPC Apex 2023 in San Diego: the VT-Z600 and VT-S1040. Its inspection systems use advanced hardware and sophisticated image processing to deliver exceptional reliability and performance at production speeds. The VT-Z600 is Omron’s fastest pre/post reflow AOI system. “IPC Apex Expo is a great venue for answering technical and process questions and showing new systems like the VT-Z600 and VT-S1040,” says Brad Ward, technical manager for advanced sensing and inspection solutions at Omron. Experts will also answer questions about the Omron Q-upNavi software suite that allows machine-to-machine (M2M) communications between SPI, AOI and AXI systems.
