All Electronics Solutions

  1. Solder Ball Inspection

    To verify each integrated circuit, this application uses an iVu Series sensor configured for an Area with Motion application. If the sensor detects a part with missing or damaged solder balls, or if it detects any foreign material, the sensor sends a fail output to the line, and the part is rejected.

  2. Hard Disk Detection

    Because disk surfaces are shiny, many sensors have difficulty detecting whether a hard disk is properly seated in a hard drive. Banner Engineering’s Q3X and Q4X sensors are designed to detect shiny surfaces with a wide variety of colors, textures, and materials.

  3. Part Flaw Detection

    To verify an electronic component like that shown, an image of a good part was captured using an iVu Series sensor configured for a Match inspection. If the sensor detects a part with a bent or missing connector, or if the part is wrong side up, the sensor sends a fail output to the line, and the part is rejected.

  4. Adhesive Detection on PCB Assembly During the Assembly Process

    Banner Engineering’s miniature VS8 sensor fits atop a glue gun to accurately detect the presence of adhesive as it is being applied. The VS8 is taught the distance between glue gun and PCB and can detect the very small height distance after the adhesive gets applied and recognize if there are any gaps or bubbles. The miniature sensors fit very well into crowded spaces that are common during electronics assembly.

  5. Fine Detail Inspection of Mobile Electronic Devices

    Cell phones and other mobile electronics have densely populated components on their printed circuit boards. A VE Smart Camera is used to capture all the fine details and ensure that all components are present and placed correctly. Using a camera eliminates the risk of human error and prevents malfunctions and recalls.

  6. Error Proofing for Integrated Circuit Chips Loaded into Pocket Tape

    • Confirm presence and orientation of IC chips • Sensor performs multiple functions at once • Cost savings and versatility

  7. Electronic Marking Verification

    The solution uses an iVu Series sensor configured for a Match inspection. A reference "good" identifier is taught into the sensor. In service on the production line, the sensor detects when a component does not have the correct identifier, and sends a fail output to the line, and the part is rejected.

  8. Adhesive Bead Detection

    The D10 Expert sensor, with the fiber optic sensing tip positioned near where the robot applies the adhesive, verifies that adhesive is applied to the IC chips. Opposed pairs of VS2 sensors detect when the level of filled wafer trays exceeds a preset height.

  9. Industrial Barcode Verification on a Cell Phone Component

    The PresencePLUS P4 BCR industrial barcode scanner reads and verifies the small 2D bar code affixed to a component of a cell phone.

  10. Verification of Two Barcodes on a Part

    A part is tracked using both a linear and a 2-dimensional barcode. The high-resolution PresencePLUS P4 BCR 1.3 reads both types simultaneously to verify that they are correct.

  11. Lower-Risk Machine Guarding: Carousel

    The Type 2 EZ-SCREEN safety light screen protects hands and fingers from being bumped, bruised, or pinched by the moving parts of a carousel.

  12. Lower-Risk Machine Guarding: Chip Shooter

    The Type 2 EZ-SCREEN safety light screen guards the opening to a chip shooter, which has moving parts that can cause painful but usually temporary injuries.

  13. Illumination and Indication for PCB Assembly

    Placing WLS27 Multicolor LED Strip Lights with EZ-STATUS above PCB assembly machines provides area lighting and status indication with one rugged and versatile light. Any changes in machine status cause the WLS27 to switch from illumination to indication and cover the entire machine with the corresponding color. This type of indication allows operators to focus on the task at hand without missing changes in machine status.

  14. Monitor Fill Level of Liquid in Mobile Drum

    The K50U wireless ultrasonic sensor was designed specifically as a non-contact level monitoring solution. Monitoring the levels of epoxy in drums during refill alerts staff of potential overflows before they become a problem.

  15. Delivery Vehicle Detection with Indication in Warehouse

    Vehicle detection at loading docks is complicated because sensing solutions are exposed to the elements and need to recognize a wide variety of surfaces. Rugged ultrasonic sensors work well to accurately detect the surfaces of delivery vehicles regardless of the material. Pairing with bright LED indication creates unmistakable operator guidance.

  16. Counting Integrated Circuits

    In order to detect these chips as they move down the conveyor, powerful sensors need to rapidly and accurately count them, but there are not many sensors that are tiny enough to fit into tight, confined spaces and still have reliable, speedy detection that keeps up with the integrated circuits as they pass by. With Banner’s ultra-miniature compact Q12 sensor, counting integrated circuits on the manufacturing line is simple.

  17. Counting Memory Sticks

    As memory sticks used in digital devices pass on a conveyor, the WORLD-BEAM Q12 counts the sticks by detecting the slight difference in height between the stick and the conveyor belt.

  18. Bond Wire Break Detection with a Fiber Optic Pair [Success Story]

    A semiconductor company requested a sensor to detect breakage of very fine wire during assembly to eliminate unscheduled downtime.

  19. Integrated Circuit Orientation

    An iVu Plus sensor checks the orientation of each integrated circuit before is is transferred to a circuit board.
