Leveraging a 30 year history of pioneering optical technology advancements including digital 3D inspection, CyberOptics now makes a significant step-change in 3D sensing. Delivering advantages that have previously been unachieved in the industry, this technology enables ultra-high quality 3D images at production speeds, using architecturally superior multi-view sensors and Multi-Reflection Suppression technology (MRS).

The multi-view 3D data is merged together with highly sophisticated algorithms and MRS which suppresses any reflection that can distort the data, enabling a precise 3D representation. This is particularly critical for inspecting shiny objects. The architecturally superior sensor design captures and transmits the data simultaneously and in parallel, vs. a typical serial approach used in alternate technologies. These breakthrough technology building blocks result in unmatched speed and accuracy.

“The combination of high quality 3D accuracy at low speed, or lower accuracy at high speed have both been accomplished, but achieving ultra-high quality 3D data at production speeds is only now achievable with the architecturally superior multi-view sensor incorporating Multi-Reflection Suppression technology,” said Dr. Subodh Kulkarni, President and CEO, CyberOptics. “We continue to drive innovation that delivers even more value to our customers world-wide in terms of process, quality and operational efficiency improvement in manufacturing environments.”

With electronics packaging continuing to get smaller and the density increasing, defects become more of an issue, fuelling the need for precision inspection. This breakthrough sensor technology is not only applicable for 3D inspection in electronics assembly, but also the semiconductor market, both of which CyberOptics has a global market leading position in. Additionally, it also extends the company’s reach into the general purpose metrology industry, the third key market where CyberOptics is strategically focused.
