Defect Cause Analyzing Tool

Captured images will be stored in a database. When a defect occurs, the database can be searched to retrieve the captured image data so that analysis of the defect cause can be easily carried out. In addition, a full range of analysis supporting functions is provided including a Movie Mode and a Digital Zoom Function.

Component Presence Verification

By comparing the images captured before and after the component placement, it is possible to judge whether the component is present or absent.

Database Management

The captured images and the placement machine information are stored in a database. By selecting a specified database from a backup file, it is possible to display previously stored data.

Setup Assistance

When starting production with a new placement machine type, the master image showing normal product placement can be displayed alongside the image captured during manufacturing and trial placement. This allows verification of the placement condition to be easily carried out and shortens the setup time of the new placement machine.

What is”Placement Monitor”?

By attaching newly developed, ultra-small cameras directly to the placement machine head, imaging and storage of the pickup and placement of each component can now be carried out in real-time. When a defect occurs, cause analysis can be carried out visually by the operator based on the stored image data.
