OMRON Launches Board Visual Inspection Equipment Equipped with AI, Reducing Setting Man-hours by Approximately 70%

OMRON Corporation will globally launch the VT-S10 Series, a board visual inspection system equipped with AI (artificial intelligence) and imaging technology that automates high-precision visual inspection of electronic boards without the need for special skills, from August 5th. did. In a demonstration experiment that compared program creation time and test accuracy rate with multiple customers, it was said that the setting man-hours could be reduced by about 70%.

The “VT-S10 series” uses OMRON’s original “MDMC (Multi Direction Multi Color)” imaging technology, and according to the characteristics of the parts and solder shape of the board to be inspected, the irradiation angle, color, and light intensity of the illumination during inspection can be optimally controlled automatically.

By equipping OMRON with image processing know-how cultivated over 30 years in the field of appearance inspection and AI that has learned solder inspection knowledge, inspections that previously had to rely on human sensibilities can be automated. It also promises to significantly improve the test accuracy rate.

In addition, by combining AI inspection and quantitative inspection using MDMC lighting, we succeeded in reducing teaching skills and reducing oversight. In a demonstration experiment with a customer, it was confirmed that the number of man-hours required for visual inspection was reduced by 85%.
