Elmo’s motion solutions are ideal for the ever-evolving world of Automated Optical Inspection

Automated Optical Inspection (AOI) machines require their own custom systems to perfect output and eliminate false rejections. It is for good reason the Elmo’s drives mounted directly on the axis, ultra- small servo with a size optimized electric cabinet and reduced settling time and higher system throughput have been chosen the world’s most AOI systems manufacturers in the industry. With Elmo, AOI systems can consistently maintain presence, position, quality and readability.

Smooth Motion

Achieving smooth velocity profile, allowing image capture without jitter.

High Flexibility

On the fly changes between high (400 mm/sec) to low speed (100 mm/sec).

Increased Troughput

Reducing scanning time & overall inspection time.

Fan-Less Technology

99% Efficiency generates minimal heat thus reducing the need for cooling fans and heat sinks

Easy to Implement

“Mount it anywhere” and the intuitive use of EASII shorten time to market.

Efficient Multi-Axis Synchronization

Precise Axis control made possible by advanced servo control

Mastering the Motion Control Challenges Posed by Stress Test Stations

Stress tests often put a component under the stress of an entire product lifetime in a few days, and every aspect must be tightly controlled. When Heitec AG looked for precise motion control for its high-end testing stations for advanced products such as medical devices, it turned to Elmo’s Gold Whistle servo drives. Read why.

Powering Camera Positioning for High-Precision Print Inspection

If printing defects aren’t caught early on, they lead to lost time and wasted materials. Sophisticated machine-vision inspection systems can solve the problem, but they need the right motion control solution that can fit tight speed and size constraints. Read how leading print inspection company AVT solved the challenge.

Enabling built-in flexibility and quality control in PCB production

Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs) are in our phones, laptops and almost every electronic device that we use. With the technology changing at breakneck speed, PCB manufacturers need more flexibility and better performance. But, with more flexibility comes greatly increased complexity.
Here’s how a PCB printing machine manufacturer solved the motion control challenges, enabling greater flexibility and significantly higher throughput.
