ScanCOMPONENT is a PC based offline component programming system for the creation of vision data files for the smallest flip chip and bumped packages to the largest odd form devices. Wafer trays, nozzles, shields, lead frames and feeder tapes can also be imaged, measured and processed. The system includes a calibrated high-resolution color scanner platform combined with a powerful, easy to use, software package.


Obtain component measurement data by simply placing the desired component on the flatbed scanner, bringing the image into the system and filling in the required fields. This creates an output file that is ready to use, a simple process taking only a few minutes.


Images and related measurement data are stored in ScanCOMPONENT ready to be compared to future revisions or releases of the same component. Different job lots or different sources for the same component can be verified to have the same characteristics in this offline system to avoid interruptions or surprises on the production floor.


  • Accurate:  High precision measurement tool eliminates common component programming errors.
  • Powerful:  Permits offline comparison of substitute components to verify compatibility with existing programs.
  • Fast:  Helps first article set up and product change over on production systems.
  • Flexible:  Able to program the smallest components (flip chips) up to the largest components (Odd Form), SMD through hole, etc.
  • Eliminate:  Using production machines for component teach.
  • Easy:  Simple step by step procedure.
