Microscan - ATC Automation
2013


AIM AIDC (Non RFID) Case Study Competition Participant

One of ATC’s customers, a leading supplier of electrical and fiber optic interconnects, switches and application tooling, manufactures miniature identifier chips that provide unique product traceability of work-in-progress (WIP) printed circuit boards (PCBs) in medium to high-volume electronics assembly processes.

In the course of the end customers’ PCB manufacturing process, the pad is loaded into a standard SMT chip shooter and then picked-and-placed alongside other components and the PCB is solder reflowed. Each PCB thereby gains a unique identification. This provides traceability data not only for the PCB, but also for all other components contained on the populated PCB and for the final assembled device.

It is paramount that the high density miniature Data Matrix code is present and readable on each individual pad. Therefore, the manufacturer looked for a reliable solution to ensure code readability during the manufacturing process of the pad reels.

Our customer was pleased with the performance of Microscan’s products, and were very interested in the benefits that the next generation imagers from Microscan could bring,” Brian Walsh, Engineering Sales Manager at ATC Automation explains.
