Scienscope Wins 2022 NPI Award for IMS-200

Scienscope International, a leading American supplier of cabinet style micro-focus X-ray systems,  received a 2022 CIRCUITS ASSEMBLY NPI Award in the category of Labelling for its IMS-200. The award was announced during a special online ceremony on Monday, Feb. 24, 2022.

As with all Scienscope X-ray products, the IMS-200 offers the best price-to-performance ratio in the industry.  Accurate component labeling is vital for inventory management and production efficiency. Currently, this is a time-consuming, labor-intensive process.  Most machines require an operator load and run through each reel to label and introduce each component. The result is less time and labor to count and more error-proof recording of the results. 

 The IMS-200 is a complete automatic component reels labeling system. It scans the barcode on the reels, uploads the desired information to the MES system, receives the new label with new barcodes, prints, and places the new labels on the reels. The machine uses an Ultra High-resolution camera to read 95 percent of the barcode, including 1D, 2D, QR code, and data-matrix. The estimated ROI is six to ten months, depending on the volume of reels. Its accuracy, efficiency, and affordability earn its CIRCUITS ASSEMBLY’S NPI AWARD as the product of the year.

Introduced in 2008, the NPI Awards program celebrates product excellence in electronics surface mount assembly. A distinguished panel of industry experts chooses exclusive products based on the finest examples of creative advancement in technology.
