An Integrated Flux Sprayer Machine

This invention solves the problem Efficiency Improvement,space saving and cost saving in Wave Solder Station.Traditionally , the AOI (Automated Optical Inspection) Machine and Flux Sprayer Machine are independent , they are very expensive and lead the production line so long with low overall equipment effectiveness.

Normally the AOI Machine and Flux Sprayer are independent:
AOI Machine:

Flux Sprayer Machine:

Now by combining these 2 machines into one : AOI and Flux sprayer integrated device consists of AOI camera, Flux sprayer and a central control computer.

Working Principle: PCBA is transferred into device by conveyor, and stops in the middle of AOI camera and flux sprayer. AOI begin to take pictures from top, at the same time flux is sprayed from the bottom side. Computer assess the pictures and display the inspection result from the monitor. After the AOI result review, conveyor transfer the PCBA to the next station before wave solder oven. Failure boards could be removed, meanwhile passed ones could keep going to the wave solder oven.
