As part of the new features, the company’s AOI and SPI solutions would have connectivity through its process monitor SPC package. A closed-loop type of interface with printer manufacturers is another new feature to be introduced.
The QX500 AOI system was launched at the NEPCON China 2010 and it has won three esteemed awards.
