Applications

Adhesive Bead Detection
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.

Lower-Risk Machine Guarding: Chip Shooter
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.

Part Flaw Detection
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.

Hard Disk Detection
Hard Disk Detection

Because disk surfaces are shiny, many sensors have difficulty detecting whether a hard disk is properly seated in a hard drive. The divergent-beam MINI-BEAM Expert sensor is installed above a conveyor transporting hard disks. The sensor is programmed to recognize a predetermined amount of returned light. When the sensing beam is directed onto a perpendicular specular surface, such as a properly seated hard disk, more light is returned to the receiver. The MINI-BEAM sensor pair triggers the MINI-BEAM Expert.

Bond Wire Break Detection with a Fiber Optic Pair
Bond Wire Break Detection with a Fiber Optic Pair

A pair of fiber optics in opposed mode are located below the bond wire. When the wire breaks and falls through the beam, an adjustable one-shot output pulse is energized. This application does not require a consistent positioning of the bonding wire.

Counting Memory Sticks
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.

Counting Integrated Circuits
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.
