modusAOI MCS18 & MCS42 -inline

The MCS18 & MCS42 is a low-cost camera based AOI system. This solution allows for economical and flexible inline inspection of the several production processes. This small inexpensive system comes complete with a 18 & 42 megapixel, high-definition system camera and computer with the modus AOI-software.



  • Single system for the inspection of objects within an inline application.( Camera cluster up to 8 )
  • Combination of various inspection tasks such as SMD-THT-UV, bond inspection as well as laser solder inspection
  • Typical tests include confirmation of the mechanical assembly, presence, placement and orientation of plugs, stickers, fixings, reading of barcode and data-matrix codes.
