The Global Automated Optical Inspection Systems Market size is expected to reach $1.7 billion by 2026, rising at a market growth of 20.4% CAGR during the forecast period. Major factors driving the growth of the industry include growing demand for consumer products, rising demand for high-quality electronic parts, demand for better efficiency by electronics manufacturing (EMS) firms, and increasing demand for AOI systems in automotive electronics. Automated optical inspection is a significant tool used in the manufacture and testing of PCBs.

Automated optical inspection is a method that utilizes optics to obtain high-quality images of the printed circuit board to detect any defect or anomaly in the PCB component assembly. The probability of errors in the manufacture and assemble of PCB parts has risen owing to the fast speed and large volume of manufacturing processes and the reality that the size and complexity of PCBs have decreased with the miniaturization of the parts has positively impacted the market for automated optical inspection systems.

The key objective of the automated optical inspection (AOI) is to conduct the real-time inspection provided by the electronics manufacturing company as well as to provide analytical evidence that is critical for process control and improvement as production volumes increase. AOI systems use a variety of methods such as Template Matching, Pattern Matching, and Statistical Pattern Matching. This also assists with assessing if there are missing parts, incomplete connections, and poor solder joints.

This ensures that the consistency of the product leaving the assembly line is good and that the items are produced correctly, without any manufacturing defects. Automated optical inspection is known to be a reliable inspection process for printed circuit boards (PCBs) in the overwhelming majority of electronic products manufacturing industries. High technology adoption in the consumer electronics industry is driving the development of the global demand for automated optical inspection systems.

May-2020: Nordson EFD, a Nordson company unveiled the OptiSure Automated Optical Inspection (AOI) software and confocal laser as add-ons to its existing vision-guided dispensing robots. OptiSure AOI add-ons provide optical assurance of fluid deposit accuracy and integrate seamlessly with Nordson EFD’s proprietary DispenseMotion software.

Mar-2020: CyberOptics launched the Multi-Reflection Suppression (MRS)-enabled 3D MX3000 Final Vision Inspection (FVI) system for memory modules. The system extended its memory module inspection system portfolio from 2D to 3D3D MX3000 memory module inspection system. The system enabled highly accurate, dual-sided final vision inspection, and doubles productivity.

Mar-2020: Test Research, Inc. (TRI) introduced the high-resolution TR7700QE-S 3D AOI for the Semiconductor and Packaging Industry. The TR7700QE-S provides high accuracy and repeatability.

Nov-2019: Omron released the new 3D-SPI VP-9000 system used in the PCB manufacturing process for the production of electric devices. The system complemented its lineup of 3D-AOI and 3D-CT AXI systems, as well as flexible robotics solutions for personalized manufacturing. The new VP9000 solder paste inspection solution detects and relays the data to the printer, ensuring reliability.

Oct-2019: Koh Young America released the True 3D Automated Optical Inspection (AOI) platform, the Zenith Alpha. The Zenith Alpha has been suitable for myriad manufacturers, including smaller companies.

Apr-2019: Saki Corporation released the 2Di-LU1 inline bottom-side automated optical inspection (AOI) system. Saki’s 2D line-scan technology is ultra-fast, capturing the image of an entire 460x500mm printed circuit board assembly (PCBA) and carriers of 610x610mm in one pass, in real-time, storing the image into memory, and creating inspection data for the entire board.
