ICOS announced the LI-3050, a highly versatile and flexible 3D lead inspection system. The system inspects lead coplanarity, stand-off, leads bend, lead burr and many other criteria. It uses a patented inspection technique, which performs a dual projection of each lead onto a specially coated glass plate. It generates a true 3D measurement of each lead in space. The LI-3050 handles tray or tube-based devices. The system contains two feeding areas, which can to each contain one tray or two tubes. It can perform sorting or media transfer, has a small footprint and is ideally suited to low-to-medium volume inspection batches, with frequent changeovers.
