PORTLAND, MAINE – VisionMaster, Inc., a worldwide provider of 3D non-contact sensor systems, today announced that is has filed a civil lawsuit in Cumberland County Superior Court against ASC, International, of Medina, MN, to recover damages and to enjoin ASC from manufacturing and distributing counterfeit VisionMaster systems and other SPI systems based on pirated VisionMaster technology. The alleged pirated products are all 3D non-contact sensor systems sold by ASC since 2010, including those sold under both VisionMaster and VisionPro labels.

The suit alleges that ASC engaged in Unfair Competition and Deceptive Trade Practices. The lawsuit seeks damages, an injunction and other remedies.

This action relates to unlawful conduct concerning VisionMaster’s proprietary structured light scanning technology by VisionMaster's former master distributor. ASC was the authorized distributor of VisionMaster's Solder-Paste Inspection (SPI) products from 1998 till 2010, and contractually had a non-compete clause stating they would refrain from developing or manufacturing structured light scanning technology for five years after the relationship ended. Without interruption, ASC went from selling authorized VisionMaster SPI systems to selling counterfeit systems. ASC is alleged to have illegally copied VisionMaster’s proprietary hardware and software and to have subsequently sold it to numerous customers under both the VisionMaster and VisionPro labels.

“VisionMaster strongly believes in the value of IP, and takes protecting trade secrets seriously,” said Allegra McNeally, executive director at VisionMaster. “We will not allow any competitor who steals our trade secrets and infringes on our Registered trademark, good name and reputation to evade the consequences of clear, long-standing fair trade laws. We will not hesitate to protect our intellectual property and are aggressively pursuing all legal remedies available to us.”

Customers who have purchased a counterfeit product receive inferior and/or older technology, which does not work as well as genuine VisionMaster products. Many copies of hardware products such as the long-discontinued VisionMaster VM150 have been found and are frequently defective. Customers who can check the authenticity of their VisionMaster Solder-Paste Inspection system by entering the serial numbers on a special page set up on VisionMaster's website: http://www.visionmasterinc.com/index.php/authentication.

Press Releases / First Meeting of NEPCON 2014 Advisory Panel Held in Shanghai
« Last post by MW Associates on March 06, 2014, 08:28:55 AM »
The first meeting of the NEPCON 2014 Advisory Panel was recently held at the offices of the exhibition organizers, Reed Exhibitions Shanghai. The five Advisory Panel members – Jian Zhu, Director, Alcatel Shanghai Bell; Zhaochen Huang, VP, Production, UT Star; Fred Fong, Senior Consultant, Powertech Industrial (former Technology Director, Asia-Pacific, Jabil Circuit); Edward Tung, Managing Director, East West Group, former VP and GM, Flextronics Technology); and Haley Fu, Managing Director, AP, iNEMI – met for discussions with Thomas Huang, Assistant VP, Reed Exhibitions; Morris Dong, Project Director of NEPCON China, South China, and West China and Lewis Tang, Marketing Director, Reed Exhibitions.

The Panelists talked about the development of the Chinese electronics industry, future trends, marketing opportunities/challenges, participant invitations and complementary activities like forums, keynote speaker nominations, and more.  These topics related to the entire NEPCON series of events in China (NEPCON China, NEPCON West China, and South China). The talks were highly constructive and yielded a number of interesting insights on several key issues.

The organizers of the NEPCON China series, Reed Exhibitions, should be congratulated for the scope and reputation of the shows they have built up in China,” said Mr. Jian after the meeting. “The establishment of the Advisory Panel is a testament to the hard work Reed has done, and continues to do, to make the series a consistent and outstanding success.” NEPCON has achieved great results in the industry,” added Mr. Fong. “It is renowned within electronics manufacturing for providing insights into the future development of the industry, while perfectly matching the needs of visitors to those of participating exhibitors, and vice versa.”

“The Advisory Panel meeting was a great success,” said Mr. Dong. “The Panel provided us with some very useful information on how we can enhance the organization of the NEPCON series of events in China. These were highly beneficial to us and enhanced our understanding of new industry developments.  I found the key messages delivered by the Panel members really inspirational.  We are very pleased to have access to the full expertise and experience of such esteemed industry professionals.  Further, we are confident that, with their input, we can continue to deliver powerful events for the electronics manufacturing industry.”

Since 1982, when NEPCON was first introduced to China, the series has grown into the leading event in electronics manufacturing to offer a combination of global resources and local talent support. It is the only event officially backed by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) and the Surface Mount Technology Association (SMTA). Today, in China, the NEPCON series includes NEPCON China, NEPCON West China, NEPCON South China and a range of roadshows in Chongqing and other locales.

Apart from the above-named five experts, the Advisory Panel has recently appointed, as of December 12, 2013, four new members – Jianfeng Liu, VP, ZTE;  Zemin Zhang, Deputy GM, Manufacturing, Eastcom;  Xiaoqiang Fei, R&D Director, Jabil Circuit; and Adonis Mak, President and Director of ACT International (SMT China Magazine).  The expanded Advisory Panel expects to add yet more experts to its ranks soon.

Before the NEPCON series of events kicks off in 2014, Advisory Panel meetings will be held to improve coordination among the industry experts. During the course of next year’s series – NEPCON China April 23-35; NEPCON West China June 25-27 and NEPCON South China 26-28 August – the Panelists will attend the events (exhibitions and collocated activities like forums) to provide guidance on-site.
“From a strategic perspective, the leading industry experts on the Advisory Panel provide guidance and support for the event.  This enriches the services and value enjoyed by exhibitors and visitors before, during and after each event.  We cannot approach preparations for next year’s NEPCON series with a silo mentality,” said Thomas Huang, Assistant VP of Reed Exhibitions.

“Reed is committed to providing the best event for everyone who takes part.  We want to offer a comprehensive, accurate and up-to-date picture of the whole industry. With the help of the Advisory Panel of leading industry experts, we hope that NEPCON will become even stronger, thanks to their valuable insights and constructive advice. The events will provide an accurate picture of the industry both in Asia and across the wider world.  This will surely benefit the Chinese market - our local customers. We are determined to provide the best possible services to every single participant in our events.”

Press Releases / JUKI Introduces RV-1, Its Newest PWB AOI & SPI System
« Last post by MW Associates on February 18, 2014, 09:01:30 AM »
JUKI announces the launch of the RV-1 PWB inspection machine, which significantly improves inspection accuracy and speed with both automatic optical inspection (AOI) and solder paste inspection (SPI) functions. RV-1 inspects component mounting failures and solder printing failures to prevent defective PWBs from going on the market. This machine is equipped with “Clear Vision Capturing System” to correctly detect a failure at high speeds even for high-density PWB, used in devices such as mobile terminal.
 
To inspect a PWB, the machine will compare the actual PWB image data with the data programmed in advance to determine whether the PWB is correctly produced or not.  It uses “Clear Vision Capturing System” as an illumination device for shooting a PWB, and is equipped with 270 mm large-diameter high-brightness white LED 3-ring light and coaxial light. These lights allow the machine to capture extremely clear images for any kind of items, so that the machine can drastically reduce false calls (erroneous decision of a good PWB as a defective) and time loss required for recheck. Additionally, a twin linear motor, high-speed data transmission of CMOS camera and image processing library enables high-speed image shooting at 0.14 sec/frame to increase the speed of inspection significantly.
 
3-D images synthesized from images shot with the “angle camera” can be displayed for a final visual check so that the operator can determine whether the PWB is correctly produced or not. “Central Operation Control” allows one operator to check inspection images from two or more production lines, in order to streamline the inspection process and prevent variability of judgments among each operator. As for programming, all you have to do is to paste a template created in advance, then the inspection data will be generated automatically; the operation will be easy even for beginners.

RV-1 is equipped not only with the AOI function, for inspecting the placement condition before and after the reflow, but also the SPI function for inspecting the PWB after solder printing. These functions are applicable to a variety of applications, and can flexibly correspond to changes of production line.  Same operation method can be adopted for both functions, so that the programming and operators’ education can be performed effectively.

Due to recent trends in high and multi-functionality of smart devices such as smartphones, automotive Engine Control Units (ECU), medical devices and digital consumer electronics devices, the size of components have been reduced further, and density increased further.  In addition to the newly released RV-1 as well as JUKI’s also recently debuted RP-1, JUKI has recently released the “RX-series” high-speed compact modular mounter. These systems expand JUKI’s lineup of mounting devices, making it possible to meet our customers’ demands for high productivity, flexibility and high quality throughout the entire production line.

###

Juki, a global leader in high-speed SMT Assembly equipment, has shipped more than 25,000 machines worldwide since 1987.  Juki has built its global image with a combination of top-quality and high-reliability machines with a reputation for world-class service and support that result in the lowest production costs for its customers.  The pioneer of the modular assembly system in 1993, Juki offers flexible solutions designed for both high-volume and high mix environments.
