About us

optical control – The Company
optical control has been dealing with non-contact, X-ray based component counting for several years.
optical control developed the first automated X-ray scanner for counting electronic component in 2013. The third generation of the OC-SCAN®CCX is now on the market. Software and functions are continuously adapted to the real needs of the manufacturing industry. All further developments are tested by sister company elektron systeme under real production conditions. Experiences and wishes from the production of electronic components are therefore actively incorporated into the development of the component counter.

The system simplifies the material inventory process for the electronic industry in a significant and measurable manner. The OC-SCAN®CCX can be used efficiently to increase productivity, reduce costs, improve component safety, reduce workloads and increase customer satisfaction.

In the meantime, the system has been established worldwide as a standard equipment in industry 4.0 SMT production.

Products and services

The Original X-Ray Component Counter
Exact inventory knowledge and permanent inventory is mandatory to increase productivity, for on-time delivery and an immediate reaction in case of bottlenecks.

OC-SCAN®CCX gives an exact overview about single component stocks. Annual inventory becomes superfluous by using the X-Ray Counter. Counting of SMD-components on reels is fast, exact and contactless. Counting results of reels with dry packs and large components in high volume packaging are absolutely exact. The operation of the CCX is intuitive and is supported by an automatic component recognition and artificial database intelligence. OC-SCAN®CCX enables the electronic manufacturer to count auxiliary equipment per customers order.

The OC-SCANCCX.3 gives an exact overview about single component stocks.

Automatic component recognition - Counting of unknown components - intelligent database onsite - verification of results - Sticks & Trays - Order counting - Inventory mode - Quad Count - Compoment Chains - Dry Pack



Automatic component recognition and artificial database intelligence:

The full-automatic OC-SCANCCX mixes the unknown components and detects the correct parameter setting - without external databases or a cloud.

The articles are deposited subsequently with the orresponding data in the building part library.

OC-SCANCCX: Quad Count

Counting is possible for up to four reels (7’’) during ONE process within less then 20 seconds. Each result is verified individualy through the plausibilty check. The operator can inspect each single image and accept it. The correct classification of the counting results to the corresponding reels is ensured by barcode crosschecking.

News & Innovations

Plausibility Check 

This is a very innovative and excellent software feature for Industry 4.0

When the counting algorithm is reached, several factors are examined in the plausibility check: Is approximately the same number of building parts in each sector? Do all building parts in the reel have approximately the same size? Are they approximately at the same distance?

This is evaluated in a stoplight mode (green, yellow and orange) and provides an overview of the counting exactness of the result. If the results are marked up in yellow or orange, the operator decides through a visual check whether the counting of the components was performed correctly. If required, he corrects the result or repeats the process. The threshold values of the stoplight function can be determined by the customer according to their own needs or exactness requirements.

The plausibility check is the prerequisite for the integration of the OC-SCAN®CCX in a full-automatic storage system without manual operation.
