StencilScan - Assembly Module
Offline Programming, Measurement & Inspection Module

INNOVATIVE ALTERNATIVES

The Assembly Module is a sophisticated and user-friendly alternative to complex CAM software packages and inaccurate, time consuming manual inspection and programming methods that cost assembly houses productivity, time and money. Designed to enhance the StencilScan system, the Assembly Module is a fully integrated, off-line programming, inspection and measurement workstation.

PROGRAMMING

StencilScan's Assembly Module produces assembly programs and process documentation for Pick and Place, Insertion, Test, Inspection and Dispensing machines.

Import / Scan

  • CAD, Components, Boards, Film, Stencils, BOM and Gerber Data

Output

  • Component Pitch, Rotation and body dimensions
  • X/Y Component Centroid
  • Reference Designator & Package ID
  • Part, Feeder/Magazine Number
  • User Defined Data
  • Gerber Data
  • Process Documentation
  • Multiple machine specific CAD files (IMC, SMT, TEST, AOI) and Stencil file generation during one programming session.
  • Component Information for Vision Databases

BUILD COMPONENT LIBRARIES

Scan a component to automatically calculate and register the following information:

  • Lead Pitch, Lead Size, Body Size
  • Lead Groups, Pick Up Location, etc.
  • Specific Vision Data outputs for Fuji SMD3 and Siemens SIPLACE
  • Generic Vision ASCII files for other suppliers.

FIRST ARTICLE INSPECTION

The Assembly Module increases productivity with the ability to scan the first article and compare it to the CAD data.




OFF-LINE INSPECTION & MEASUREMENT

StencilScan's Assembly Module uses a combination of editing functions to ensure that all information has been inserted correctly. This off-line verification significantly reduces first article setup time. Overlay CAD and/or Gerber data and compare:

  • Loaded Boards
  • Bare Boards
  • Stencils
  • Components
  • Wet Glue / Solder Paste/ Epoxy

Why Use StencilScan's Assembly Module?

  • Flexible: Use one workstation to produce assembly files for multi-vendor Surface Mount, Insertion, Test, Inspection and Dispensing machines.

  • Powerful: Use one workstation to inspect stencils, screens and bare or loaded boards.

  • Accurate: Find and eliminate errors with Loaded PCBs, Wet Solder Paste, Glue, etc.

  • Fast: Decrease programming time from days to hours.

  • Easy: PC based system.
