SCHOTT MORITEX Offers New High-Brightness LED Line Illumination and High-Power Bar Illumination Series

Machine vision illumination for a wide range of inspection targets, including printed circuit boards, glass panels, and automotive parts
SCHOTT MORITEX, a manufacturer of machine vision systems and imaging-related equipment, recently introduced the MLNC high-brightness LED line illumination and MHBC high-power bar illumination series, two new machine vision lighting series for product inspection in a wide range of fields. Both new series of machine vision lights will be on display at SEMICON West in San Francisco on July 8-10, 2014 at booth #2510.

The MLNC high-brightness LED line illumination series provides lighting 10 times brighter than previous SCHOTT MORITEX models in a compact housing that measures 25 millimeters (mm) thick. The general trend toward an increase in manufacturing and inspection throughput demands brighter LED line illumination in various fields, such as printed circuit boards, a need met by the MLNC series. Other applications include appearance inspection of LCD panels and film, and in the pharmaceutical industry, surface inspection of tablets and pills as well as foreign matter inspection of ampoules. The product lineup includes three models with illuminated line length measuring 100 mm, 200 mm, and 300 mm that each feature an adjustable condensing lens enabling a flexible point of focus. The standard color is white, with red available as made-to-order.

Specifications of the MLNC series:

The MHBC high-power bar illumination series allows for extended working distance between the inspection target and the light source for greater flexibility in configuring layouts of lighting devices and uniform wide-area illumination. The MHBC series provides optimal lighting performance for inspection of large mechanical parts for automobiles, printed labels on pharmaceutical products, food packages, and soldering on printed circuit boards, for example. The product lineup includes four models with light-emitting area measuring 150 mm, 300 mm, 450 mm, and 600 mm. The standard color is white, with red available as made-to-order.

Specifications of the MHBC series:

Model Name Light-Emitting Area (mm) Color
150 x 42
300 x 42
450 x 42
