“I’ve worked with Southwest Systems on several products over the past 25+ years,” commented Todd O’Neil, VP of Business Development at Optical Control. “They understand the market needs and know their territory better than anyone. We are very excited to bring them on as part of our team, and we look forward to to their contribution for continued market share growth in 2019.”

The CCX X-ray from optical control is a true plug-and-play system that can X-ray ANY size reel in the same cycle time no matter type of component, or how full or empty it is. High speed combined with the best accuracy, it is capable of providing an ROI faster than any other machine. The highlight of the CCX is – there are no libraries required or need for customer input to get started. It’s as simple as plugging in the machine, and start counting.

The machine may also be configured for complete automation, including integrations into automated storage units. Integration of the CCX-X-ray by software only, using a loading and unloading unit, or complete integration, is up to the customer in their steps toward industry 4.0.

Scott Fillebrown, Managing Director at Southwest Systems Technology, stated: “Southwest Systems has always only represented companies and products that we would buy if we were the customer. Optical Control’s CCX X-ray meets that criteria. The CCX X-ray is the most accurate counting X-ray available in the SMT marketplace. It is easy to program, robust, serviceable and provides efficient and measurable ROI.”
