Oven Industries announces the addition of Automatic Optical Inspection (AOI) and PC board cleaning equipment to increase product assembly efficiencies in electronic contract manufacturing, complementing their ongoing focus on continuous improvement, quality workmanship, product reliability and repeatability.
An ISO aerospace certified electronic contract manufacturing company, OVEN Industries has been specialising in analogue and digital temperature controllers and sensors for over 45 years. The combination of AOI and specialised deioniser cleaning equipment complements their already proficient Surface Mount (SMT) and through-hole PCB component assembly machines.
According to OVEN’s President, AOI is a robotic inspection system that enables their production to ensure all the components are present and properly placed during PCB assembly, while the deioniser cleaning equipment helps remove unwanted residue.
The automatic optical inspection equipment offers multiple detection capabilities including solder detection and lead defects, component presence and position, read nomenclature at an amazing 4 square inches per second and more than 200,000 components per hour. The deioniser board cleaner is an extremely versatile unit with zero-discharge, eliminating the need for wastewater management. A touchscreen user interface is provided.
Founded in 1964, Oven Industries specialises in the development of custom electronic temperature controllers and sensors along with extensive turnkey contract manufacturing capabilities. OVEN also carries a full line of standard products including temperature controllers and sensors, power supplies, heat sinks, thermistors and thermocouples.
