Chad Industries has developed a suite of vision tools for the placement of Odd-Form components into circuit boards.

With leading-edge vision systems integrated into our standard equipment, the location, inspection and ultimate placement of components is guaranteed when the proper vision tools are applied.

All automated CHAD circuit board assembly systems are controlled with the sophisticated Adept Controller. The Adept Controller not only has the power to control the mechanisms, but is also the only controller with vision truly integrated into the motion controller. Cameras can be mounted to the robot to inspect features or components on the board, or mounted to the deck to reference components in the robot gripper.

Additionally, vision can be adapted directly to any CHAD smart feeder. Smart feeders are controlled by a Keyence PLC and vision can be integrated directly to the PLC for part inspection or barcode reading.

In special automation applications, the use of standard COGNEX application vision packages can also be integrated into the systems.

No matter the vision challenge, CHAD and it's vision partners have the tools to solve it.
