In the current world of allocation, it goes without saying that electronics manufacturers are doing everything they possibly can to fully maximize every single resource on the factory floor.
While minimizing waste was a top concern pre-COVID supply chain disruptions, today the most successful manufacturers have taken a zero-tolerance approach to waste.
Searching for novel ways to optimize the manufacturing process and get the most out of what they have, many electronics manufacturers are zeroing in on the repair process
– as there tends to be a lot of waste here due to its manually intensive nature with components and boards at risk of being damaged or even scrapped. The best way to reduce PCBAs getting sent to repair, or wasting too much time physically getting repaired, is to check units sooner in the assembly process with a pre-soldering inspection solution.
And while there are many of these on the market, the newest release of Cogiscan’s TTC Fix
differentiates itself from the noise with two major differentiators:
- The 2D inspection machine is based on an AI and machine-learning platform that uses a neural network to detect and identify the most common placement errors
- Thorough integration with a visual repair tool that seamlessly and intuitively guides the repair with detailed defect images and full traceability reporting
