SMD X-Ray Scanner OC-SCAN®CCX.3
Component count within 10 seconds
Automatic component recognition and artificial database intelligence:
Counting of unknown components within 10 seconds: The full-automatic OC-SCAN®CCX measures the unknown components and detects the correct parameter setting – without external databases or a cloud. The article is then stored in the building part library with the corresponding data.
Counting with high volume packaging
Big building parts in high volume packaging within a reel are difficult to count, because the separation of the single component in the picture is no longer possible due to the parallel effect during the image recording. The newest counting software generation was specifically optimized for this problem and delivers superior counting results.
OC-SCAN®CCX enables the assignment of counting results to a category or an inventory. An integrated administration tool is provided that allows marking a category as finished or setting deadlines for its validity. Also included is a reporting tool for creating summary reports of all group counting processes.
After the counting algorithm has been performed, several factors are examined in the plausibility check: Is the same number of components in each sector? Do all building parts in the reel have approximately the same size? Are they approximately at the same distance?
This is evaluated in a stoplight mode (green, yellow and orange) and provides an overview of the counting exactness of the result. If the results are marked up in yellow or orange, the operator decides through a visual check whether the counting of the components was performed correctly. If required, he corrects the result manually or repeats the process. The threshold values of the stoplight function can be determined by the customer according to their own needs or accuracy requirements.
The plausibility check is the prerequisite for the integration of the OC-SCAN®CCX in a full-automatic storage system without manual operation.
When counting the reels in MSL packages, it is not the packaging that presents a problem, but the silicate bag with dry pack, which is often welded to the reel. This produces a clear reflection in the X-ray image and may greatly interfere with the image analysis.
A special software feature recognizes the obstructions in the image and uses a corresponding algorithm which allows a precise counting result.
The counting software is very robust. The results are correct even if the dry pack is directly placed on the building parts!
Quad Count Function
Counting is possible for up to four reels (7’’) during ONE process within less than 20 seconds. Each result is verified individually through the plausibility check.
The operator can inspect and accept each single image. The correct classification of the counting results to the corresponding reels is ensured by a fully-automated barcode check.

During the SMT hybridpackaging in Nuremberg Wolfgang Peter, Managing Director and Matthias Sylupp, Hardware Development, proudly presented the succesfull combination between the component counter and an autoloading system. This pilot project generated a great deal of interest within the electronic manufacturers.
optical control hires Rudy Tan, VP of Business Development in Asia
“With our rapid global growth, we have continued to expand our production and have continued to build our team by opening our new Asian office in Singapore,” commented Wolfgang Peter, Managing Director of optical control. “The Asian market is critical and we have an existing group of distributors in place. Mr. Tan has a background managing distribution channels and in business development. He is 6 sigma certified, and is a member of The Institute of Industrial Engineering in the USA and he will fit our team perfectly during our growth, and development of future products”.
“I have been watching the x-ray component counting market closely and it is clearly something that is very popular right now as the industry moves towards Industry 4.0,” added Mr. Tan. “Companies want as much automation as possible. The products from optical control are top of the line, and they have an experienced team in place . I am extremely happy to join them and I look forward to many years of success. I look forward to this new challenge and presenting our products across Asia.”
For the first time Todd O’Neil, National Sales Manager for optical control USA, presents the original component counter OC-SCAN CCX to the US market.
Mr. O’Neil has been in the electronics manufacturing industry for more than 25 years and posesses a wealth of industry knowledge and sales network experience.
