Horsham, PA. Aegis Software has announced compatibility between CyberOptics’ suite of SPI and AOI systems and Aegis’s FactoryLogix software. This new interface will provide CyberOptics customers with improved quality control and with an enhanced, automated method for identifying and collecting manufacturing defect data during inspections.

When used in conjunction with the CAD environment enabled by FactoryLogix, the robust output data from CyberOptics’ AOI and SPI machines will allow for a digital view of the collected defect data that extends down to the pin level. Traditional methods of identifying defects, such as manual, paper-based reports, are no longer necessary.

Data collected from CyberOptics is recorded directly into the FactoryLogix database and allows for a single-source device history of the product for quick reporting without the need to export the raw data to an external source. Based on the collected pass and fail data, FactoryLogix can intelligently reroute the product to the appropriate reroute path. This increased efficiency in production saves both time and money for customers.

“With this new integration capability, customers will benefit from advanced defect collection, resulting in enhanced quality control. CyberOptics is excited to partner with Aegis on this initiative as it promises to be valuable for applications in highly-regulated industries,” said Dick Johnson, engineering director, CyberOptics.
