Koh Young Technology's Zenith 3D AOI System is fully connected to Panasonic NPM (Next Production Modular) and Mounter APC (Advanced Process Control) Systems. The Zenith 3D AOI System is the first certified APC-ready 3D AOI for 0201M components, which can improve yields in high density placements.
The Koh Young Zenith 3D AOI is able to feed correct mounting position values (X, Y, Theta) to Panasonic NPM mounters ensuring that components are mounted in the targeted position as intended. This feature, also known as APC-MFB (Advanced Process Control-Mounter Feedback), improves process repeatability by automatically adjusting component placement to the paste, rather than to the pad location. Moreover, APC-MFB will catch the shift trend and conduct further position correction by using true 3D measurement data from the Zenith AOI system.
To achieve this M2M feedback control system, Koh Young has undergone rigorous verification with 10µm and 15µm Zenith 3D AOI systems. Upon successful completion of testing, Koh Young has been certified for 0201M components in addition to 0402M components; making them a leading solution provider for microchip mounting reliability.
Commenting on their successful partnership with Panasonic Smart Factory Solutions Co. Ltd, Nobuo Kobayashi, Managing Director of Japan Koh Young Co. Ltd, said, "We are honored to join the trusted APC Alliance as our vision is to deliver Agile Manufacturing innovation to our customers. We believe our superior feedback capability of the APC-ready Zenith will deliver quality pre-reflow yield and develop minimum industry standards for narrow pitch placement of microcomponents."
