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.
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 into tight spaces common in electronics assembly.
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.
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.
