Automated Optical Inspection

Machine Vision Products to demo 3D AOI and advanced software products at IPC APEX EXPO 2015


Carlsbad, CA – February 20, 2015: Machine Vision Products (MVP), a leader in Automated Optical Inspection will be demonstrating 3D AOI and advanced software products at IPC APEX EXPO 2015 in the San Diego Convention Center from February 24 to 26. MVP is exhibiting at Booth #427.

MVP is a recognized leader in AOI technology with a wide range of advanced solutions delivered for SMT, Microelectronics and Packaging customers. MVP continues to base their operations for innovative design, development and manufacturing in Carlsbad, California at their Corporate Headquarters. All of MVP’s systems are made in the USA.

MVP continues to introduce advanced AOI solutions and IPC Apex Expo 2015 will see MVP demonstrate the latest of their technologies for 3D AOI and advanced software solutions.


The MVP approach to 3D AOI utilizes the combination of both 2D and 3D AOI technologies bringing the advantages of high speed and superior defect coverage for complex defects. MVP’s advanced software tools are the key to taking advantage of each of the sensors. Combined with MVP’s ease of use software utilities ePro and Validate, it is now possible to attain the highest levels of defect coverage with MVP’s latest suite of inspection utilities.

Supra 3D V2

Based on the Supra platform, the Supra 3D is MVP’s advanced 3D AOI for enhanced detection of post reflow lifted lead defects and other complex process detractors down to 01005 components.

The advanced 3D is truly flexible allowing users to select to use 3D on specific component types or individual reference designators, while maintaining traditional high speed operation.

MVP recently introduced a new User Defined Defect (UDD) capability linking specific failure modes to specific user defect definitions. In qualified processes the UDD can be used to allow automatic defect assignment without the requirement to review individual defects. MVP will demonstrate the powerful new feature with the Supra 3D.


SPI and 2D AOI

In addition MVP will also be demonstrating the entry-level 2D AOI Supra E. With high performance and the lowest cost of ownership the Supra E is configured for a 10um pixel resolution delivering certified 01005 inspection capability to solder joint level.

For customers interested in SPI, MVP will be demonstrating their advanced Solder Paste Inspection technology with enhanced ease of use utilities allowing users to create robust 3D SPI inspection databases in a matter of minutes.

Traceability Products and Image Archiving

MVP is also a provider of software solutions that extend the power of our AOI technologies to provide advanced traceability options for our customers.

MVP will be demonstrating its AutoNetworker, a centralized database with the flexibility to be configured for a host of data mining options. For SMT and Microelectronics, both measurement and pass/fail data can be stored for every product, from every lot or work order and scalable dependent on the customer’s requirements. Data can be retained based on a customer’s own requirements from short term to endless data collection.

AutoNetworker is a valuable tool designed with the ability to quickly create reports for quality managers, operation managers and process engineers via a web-based interface accessible from any intranet location.

A significant new development to be demonstrated by MVP is the new Image Archiving capability of the AutoNetworker. Providing the ability to save every defect image detected by multiple AOI machines MVP now provide a scalable solution for Image Archiving, For critical processes where quality is of critical nature the ability to provide visual traceability as well as data traceability is essential. MVP now delivers that capability.

MVP will also be demonstrating their Dynamic Process Control (DPC) product that provides effective process traceability, linking assembly defects to the respective source equipment to provide fast resolution. DPC is scalable with lite options from AOI Management, to Production Line Management to full Factory Shop Floor Control. Full DPC includes Material Management, WIP Management, Feeder Management and Set Up Management amongst the many tools available.

Discover MVP’s Microelectronics Applications

850G With Mag HandlersMVP’s expert team will be available to discuss solutions for the MVP 850G platform for Microelectronics applications during the IPC APEX EXPO. The 850G supports the widest range of microelectronics applications due to MVP’s advanced toolbox of solutions. With resolution and repeatability a critical factor, the 850G can be configured to a 1um pixel size.

For hybrid electronic production MVP is in a unique position to offer both Microelectronics and SMT solutions for the same assembly using the 850G platform.
