What is Automatic Optical Inspection?

Automatic Optical Inspection (AOI) is a technology used in PCB manufacturing to scan boards for defects using cameras and advanced software. It detects issues like open circuits, shorts, thinning solder, incorrect, missing, or misaligned components. AOI ensures high-quality standards by identifying faults early in the production process, preventing costly rework and delays.

Essential for modern, complex PCBs, AOI machines continually improve their accuracy through adaptive learning software, making them indispensable for precise and reliable inspections.
