Optima 7301 AOI system..
Santa Clara, CA — Landrex Technologies, Inc. has recently placed one of its Optima II 7301 Express AOI systems with Intelligent Manufacturing Solutions (IMS), Inc., an EMS provider located in Manchester, New Hampshire.

According to Jeff Buxton, Technical Operations Manager at IMS, "We evaluated a number of systems that we felt would specifically address IMS' need for flexible, reliable performance, and the Landrex 7301 Express won out. It really outperformed all of the others in the areas of throughput and ease of use. We wanted a system that required minimal setup time, since we are a high-mix environment, and we also wanted a system that multiple operators could learn to use with relative ease and assurance."

The Landrex 7301 Express is a value-priced AOI system that reportedly provides high system accuracy and repeatability for the lowest false-flag rate in the industry. Five cameras provide full coverage of all detectable faults at full production line rates, and the system is especially suitable for assemblies built with lead-free solder. It includes new E.1 system software with more capabilities including offline programming, barcode reading through the camera, and improvements in the GUI. Landrex Technologies, Inc. purchased the AOI technology developed by Teredyne in April, 2004 and has been successful since then in capturing a significant global customer base.
