Pinspector 3D

Reliable pin and press-fit inspection

Your Benefits

  • Prevention of inaccurately fitted pins on PCBs
  • Optimization of manufacturing processes
  • Cost savings thanks to fewer faulty products (no bended pins or cold joints)
  • Fast and accurate inspection of x, y, z pin position
  • One system inspects multiple PCBs and pin connectors
  • User-friendly drag and drop interface with many possible measurement settings
  • Low maintenance costs thanks to non-contact measurement
  • History tracking – a wide range of logging and reporting options


Reliable pin and press-fit inspection

The Pinspector quality control system is designed for highly precise non-contact measurement and position checking of pin connectors and pins at termination sides of printed circuit boards (PCBs) before and after the press-fit process.

Pinspector integrates smart scanning technologies and Ranger streaming cameras from SICK for generating 3D imaging. Using these image data in a specially developed software, the system sorts out pins on the PCB with incorrect position. It thus prevents faulty installation, cold joints, or bended pins. In this way, it helps to reduce the amount of waste to a minimum and to save production costs.

Measurement results can be edited, sent, and stored in the integrated database – according to customer requirements.
