optical control wins Global Technology Award for its OC-SCAN®CCX.3 component counter

October 2018 — ­optical control GmbH & Co. KG announces that it was awarded a 2018 Global Technology Award in the category of Best Product – Europe for its OC-SCAN®CCX.3 component counter. The award was presented to the company during a Tuesday, Oct. 16, 2018 ceremony that took place during SMTA International.

Exact inventory knowledge and permanent inventory is mandatory to increase productivity, for on-time delivery and an immediate reaction in case of bottlenecks. Monitoring and controlling inventory to run the lines is equally critical for the production process. The OC-SCAN®CCX.3 SMD counting machine simplifies electronic manufacturing work and gives exact and precise control of inventory, and as a result, helps keeps lines running!

The CCX.3 X-ray from optical control was truly the first component counter in the industry. The stand-alone machine is fully automated as far as programming – there are no libraries or need for customer input to get started. It is truly a plug-and-play system and can X-ray ANY size reel in the same cycle time no matter how full or empty the reel is. It is the only machine with this ability, providing an ROI faster than any other machine.

The machine also can be configured for complete automation, including integrations into other sytems such as automated storage units. Whether this is done by installing the loading and unloading unit, or complete integration, is up to the customer in their steps towards industry 4.0.

Exact inventory knowledge and permanent inventory is mandatory to increase productivity, for on-time delivery and an immediate reaction in case of bottlenecks.  The entire SMT line is monitored, so monitoring and controlling inventory to run the lines is equally critical for the production process.  The OC-SCAN®CCX.3 SMD reel counting machine simplifies electronic manufacturing work and gives exact, and precise control of inventory, and as a result, helps keeps lines running!

Premiering in 2005, the Global Technology Awards program is an annual celebration of product excellence in electronics surface mount assembly. Premier products based on the finest examples of creative advancement in technology are chosen by a distinguished panel of industry experts.
