Cirtronics Installs Powerful 3D AOI Solution for Accurate Inspection Results

Duluth, GA, October 2016 - Viscom is pleased to announce that it has been selected by Cirtronics for its 3D AOI. Based in Milford, NH, Cirtronics has added an S3088 ultra blue AOI system to each of their production lines in its 175,000 sq. ft. manufacturing space.

The Cirtronics team conducted extensive evaluations on the S3088 ultra blue and competitive systems and found the Viscom units to be superior. David Patterson, Chief Operating Officer at Cirtronics commented, “The contract manufacturing space is very competitive, and because of this, many will just buy on price. Cirtronics is different in that we are always looking for ways to raise the bar for our customers. We also have the ability to see the bigger picture on our ROI analysis, and we found the Viscom system to be the best the market has to offer.”

The S3088 ultra blue addresses the growing demand for reliable and easy-to-use 3D AOI technology at an economical price. One orthogonal and four angled view cameras provide full 3D defect detection coverage for components and solder joints on PCBs. The algorithm-based technology that Viscom provides will deliver greater measurement accuracy while inspecting components and solder joints, which in-turn provides feedback to gain tighter process control to optimize the overall quality for each product being produced for Cirtronics’ customers.

Patterson added, “We look forward to a long and wonderful relationship with Viscom. Our team just returned from training last week and they continue to be impressed with the Viscom team and the capabilities of the equipment.”

The group was accompanied on the tour by a remotely operated robot that is built and tested at Cirtronics. Then the visitors were able to try out Mechanical Mayhem’s robot and interact more casually with team members, to hear about the engineering process and to learn more about the team.

“Inspiring the next generation of students to consider manufacturing as a career path is both personally and professionally gratifying”, says Gerardine Ferlins, President and CEO of Cirtronics. “We want students to see firsthand that there are jobs in manufacturing such as marketing communications and human resources that allow for a variety of interests, beyond engineering.” Ferlins continues, “For manufacturing to flourish here in the US, we need to continue to inspire students to consider a wide range of manufacturing career paths. By giving them an inside view of Cirtronics, we hope that they will come away with a feeling of broader understanding of manufacturing—and perhaps some of the same students will be welcomed as new employees a few years down the road.”
