March 2018 — ­optical control GmbH & Co. KG, a world leader in automated component counting technology, will display the OC-SCAN®CCX.3 X-ray component/parts counter in two separate booths at the NEPCON China exhibition. The exhibition is scheduled to take place April 24-26, 2018 at the World EXPO exhibition and convention center in Shanghai. Company representatives will hold demonstrations in booth 1B27 located in the German Pavilion, as well as booth 1C75 with cooperation from Suzhou Link Ways Tech Co., Ltd.

Exact inventory knowledge and permanent inventory is mandatory to increase productivity, for on-time delivery and an immediate reaction in case of bottlenecks. The entire SMT line is monitored, so monitoring and controlling inventory to run the lines is equally critical for the production process. The OC-SCAN®CCX.3 SMD counting machine simplifies electronic manufacturing work and gives exact, and precise control of inventory, and as a result, helps keeps lines running!

The first of its kind, the OC-SCAN CCX.3 uses X-ray to count SMD components in just 10 seconds for ANY size reel. It is an extremely intelligent, simple and fast machine that can provide fast ROI by eliminating endless hours of manual counting, countless mistakes, and ultimately keeping your SMT lines running. The machine can be setup and in production in less than one hour.

Some of the highlights of the CCX.3 include:

  • Automatic component recognition
  • 9 percent accurate
  • Count any size reel in approximately 10 seconds
  • Count four 7” reels in 20 seconds
  • Communicate with storage and ERP systems
  • Truly a maintenance-free machine
