Mek will be part of North America’s largest gathering of electronics manufacturing professionals later this month – the IPC APEX EXPO 2023, at San Diego Convention Center on January 24th – 26th, 2023.  They will be showcasing their latest AOI technology on  booth #1539.

Mek will be exhibiting the VeriSpector THT assembly station AOI, a low-cost assembly station AOI for use on manual and semi-automated SMD and THT assembly lines. Featuring an overhead orthogonal camera and LED lighting system the VeriSpector is designed for a wide verity of inspection needs.

Initially, available as a manual inspection system, VeriSpector is now available as both an in-line system and as a modular system for self-integration. These new developments allow manufacturers to easily integrate the VeriSpector Assembly Station AOI into their existing production lines, giving them even more control and flexibility in their inspection processes.

Also at the show, visitors can experience the powerful PowerSpector benchtop AOI featuring the latest generation 5MP USB 3 Vision Cameras. The PowerSpector AOI systems offer selective 3D imaging of components with side cameras integrated in the 3D processing.  The systems are suitable for use in pre-reflow, post-reflow, post-wave and post-selective soldering, and can also be used for 2D solder paste inspection and first article inspection.

For customers for whom value for money is an absolute priority the Mek entry level iSpector JDz desktop AOI system is designed to inspect component bodies and solder joints by use of RGB LED light sources from three different angles offering full inspection coverage at an entry level price. Powerful algorithms achieve an optimal balance between defect detection and false reject levels in the shortest time.
