Vi TECHNOLOGY, a leading provider of inspection solutions for SMT assembly, announces that it was awarded two 2014 Global Technology Awards in the categories of Best European Product and Inspection – SPI for its Pi SPI system. The awards were presented to the company during a Tuesday, Sept. 30, 2014 ceremony that took place at the Donald Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL during SMTA International.
Pi is the most revolutionary SPI system developed to-date since solder paste inspection was introduced in the SMT industry. Being the next SPI generation, Pi is fully connectable and provides solutions to improve processes. Combined with Sigma Link and AOI solutions, Pi enables the user to improve processes through a complete analysis of the solder joints versus solder paste deposit. Pi also is compatible with all major printers.
Pi is innovative, intelligent and intuitive, and allows the customer to see and measure the print process like never before. With 360° Moiré technology, Pi is the first SPI to use angle cameras to measure the solder paste deposit. Taking about 352 images per field of view, and thanks to the amazingly powerful computing system (100 times more computing power than conventional solutions), Pi provides an ultra large image in 3D true color. It offers a large PCB capability (up to 533 x 600mms) within a very small envelope (only 800mms wide), responding to the increasing constraints on floor space in modern SMD lines.
Premiering in 2005, the Global Technology Awards program is an annual celebration of product excellence in electronics surface mount assembly. Premier products based on the finest examples of creative advancement in technology are chosen by a distinguished panel of industry experts. For more information, visit www.globalsmt.net/awards.
