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.

Jan-2020: Koh Young collaborated with Custom Interconnect Ltd. following which the latter company installed two Koh Young Zenith 2 3D Automatic Optical Inspection (AOI) systems. The Koh Young system, with its eight-light projectors, benefits from fully 3D light metrology offering CIL the most accurate measurement.

Jul-2019: Saki Corporation partnered with Cogiscan Inc., the leading Track, Trace, and Control (TTC) solutions provider for the electronics manufacturing industry. The partnership was aimed to expand Saki’s manufacturing software solutions offering. Saki’s solder paste inspection (SPI), automated optical inspection (AOI), and automated x-ray inspection (AXI) software, in combination with Cogiscan’s TTC solutions, would speed the development of Smart Factory Solutions.

Jun-2019: Viscom teamed up with Epoch International for its AOI and SPI needs at its new facility in Fremont, California. Epoch has been using Viscom’s AOI and SPI systems at its China facility.

Product Launches and Product Expansions:

Jun-2020: Gopel Electronic introduced two new automatic optical inspection systems. The series consists of the stand-alone system Basic line 3D XE and the inline system Advanced line 3D XE. Both systems can be used as full 3D solder paste inspection systems (SPI). Therefore, configuration as an inspection island offers a highly efficient and flexible production environment.

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.
