Insitu: Moving Mountains in a Mountain Community


Reading time ( words)

The Columbia River Gorge in the Pacific Northwest offers breathtaking views; and for a company that manufactures unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), it also offers a backdrop for growth and opportunity. Boeing subsidiary Insitu recently cemented its commitment to the River Gorge community by opening a 127,000 square foot production facility and office space in Bingen, Wash. The technology company has come a long way from its humble beginnings in a small garage in Bigen over 20 years ago. “We’ve grown this company into an information-based company,” said Ryan Hartman, Insitu President and CEO. Hartman added, “It is a prosperous business in a town that is growing and economically healthy.”

Nearly 800 employees build and support Insitu’s UAS line of ScanEagles, Integrators and ground stations. Boeing’s cameras captured the first images inside of Insitu’s new production facility, Eagle Point. Watch the video for a peek inside and learn more about where high-tech meets mountain height.

Initiatives like the IPC Connected Factory Exchange (CFX) and IPC-Hermes-9852 underpin efforts within the industry to develop standards and help create a smart factory. These M2M communication standards, guided in part by Industry 4.0, are altering the manufacturing process by improving metrics such as first pass yield and throughput by applying autonomous process adjustments.

A limitation of many 3D optical inspection systems is the cycle time typically associated with processing millions of pixels to reconstruct a full 3D image using data captured from multiple channels. There should not be a compromise between 3D inspection and throughput. A successful inspection deployment should provide oversight for the process, not compromise, interrupt or slow that process.

Today, optical inspection systems are the preferred solution for in-line quality control in the SMT industry. Systems such as solder paste inspection (SPI) or automated optical inspection (AOI) systems for pre- and post-reflow are almost standard in every production facility.
