Mycronic AB (publ) will showcase its next-generation 3D Automated Optical Inspection system at Productronica in Munich, November 16-19, 2021. The new MYPro I series 3D AOI builds on the success of the K series 3D AOI, offering fully redesigned ergonomics as well as powerful new programming tools that further reduce programming time by up to 30%. A technology evolves: For nearly a decade, tier-one manufacturers of aerospace, automotive, medical and other high-reliability electronics have benefitted from the K series 3D AOI for its high accuracy, repeatability and flexibility. With an evolving market and technology demand, the platform's advanced algorithms have thereafter been enhanced. The result is the new MYPro I series 3D AOI, a powerful in-line inspection system capable of continually improving product quality and first pass yield for all types of PCBs. A new generation of advanced AOI: With the introduction of the new MYPro I series, these powerful inspection capabilities are now available to an even wider range of manufacturers. Due to a newly designed user interface with intuitive programming guidance and self-optimizing process control algorithms, the I series ensures easy implementation of high-performance 3D AOI for any type of production mix or class, by operators of any experience level. The new MYWizard user interface, developed specifically for the MYPro I series, integrates two artificial intelligence systems ? Auto Match-Maker, an advanced image recognition algorithm that identifies component's characteristics, and a new machine learning algorithm that automatically locates a board's fiducials and a component's polarity, in order to guide operators more rapidly through the programming phase. The result is an up to 30% reduction of programming time, compared with previous generations, with less operator experience and training required. The I series' new self-monitoring system, Escape Tracker, serves as a real-time performance optimizer for the system's inspection library. Its efficient pattern-recognition algorithm simplifies fine-tuning to virtually eliminate false calls and escapes, regardless of production conditions or programmer skill levels. By automating this critical self-monitoring function, program fine-tuning is made much simpler, faster and more efficient with less need for operator intervention. The new MYPro I series 3D AOI is scheduled to be available first half of 2022.
