Scienscope International, an American supplier of cabinet style micro-focus X-ray systems, displayed three new systems at the 2019 IPC APEX EXPO, recently held at the San Diego Convention Center. To further establish the company as the leader in automated X-ray component counting, Scienscope debuted the AXC-800 II component counter that features automatic internal bar code scanning to eliminate the use of an external bar code reader.
Also on display have been two systems that take a novel approach to the realities of component counting and inventory management – the AXC-800 7" and the automated AXI-5100 7". The systems specifically address the reality that 7" reels are by far the dominant category of SMT inventory, and are designed to address that fact by being dedicated to what is counted most often – 7" reels. The new systems will help define the component counting category by offering the lowest cost available for companies to begin accurate component counting.
Scienscope added value
“System automation and the reduction of manual steps for operators are key goals as we look towards the factories of the future,” stated Don Jeka, National Sales and Marketing Manager. “Scienscope has aligned our product development to continue to focus on these goals. We are proud of our steps forward in this area. With the addition of our 7" series systems, Scienscope offers the best value to price point component counting available in the industry. Inventory control and management, which includes accurate component counting, are absolutely critical elements as we look towards the modernization of material handling in our industry.”
