In virtually every country, quality requirements are increasing, innovation cycles are getting shorter, and wage costs are rising. As a result, demand for robot-based automation solutions is growing within the electronics industry. Easier collaboration (e.g., thanks to compact and lightweight robots) is opening up additional applications for the market and offers huge potential for new customized automation Solutions.   Continue reading

High-precision pin inspection optimizes press-fit operations

Press-fit connectors that go exactly where you want them to

Demand for electronic components is constantly growing, in turn increasing the quantities involved in PCB production. To ensure that the connections to the periphery are secure, wire connections are no longer soldered onto PCBs. Instead, a procedure called the “press-fit method” is used. This involves pressing the connectors through holes on the PCB at high pressure. The quality of each individual connection can be monitored by the Pinspector quality control system from SICK, which is already being successfully used in the automotive electronics industry.

Flexible Solutions for any application

Detection what ever the circumstances

IM0043504_Teaser_zugeschnitten

Within the electronics industry, the optimization of products and processes is vital to creating the intelligent solutions of the future. End products are entering new dimensions in terms of their performance capabilities – by becoming smaller, flatter, and lighter. Automation solutions are becoming leaner so that their optimization potential can be fully tapped from a quality assurance and cost perspective. As industrial applications become more complex, detection requirements are increasing. But SICK has the answer: the right technology for any challenge – all in an ultra-compact housing.   Continue reading
