MPM Collaborates with Koh Young to Bring KSMART Process Optimization to Printer Line


Reading time ( words)

ITW EAE is collaborating with Koh Young Technology to bring KSMART Process Optimization (KPO) to its MPM printer line. Koh Young will be demonstrating the latest technology at the upcoming productronica show in Munich, Germany, November 14-17 (Hall A2, Booth 377).

KPO analyzes printed boards and interfaces with MPM’s Benchmark software, through Open Apps source code, to provide data on key parameters. Process Engineers get feedback on recommended squeegee force, print speed, board separation and wipe frequency to improve print quality, reduce waste and increase yield. KPO significantly reduces the time and effort to establish optimum print parameters for an assembly, taking control of the printer to run test boards automatically designed and executed by KPO, then performing detailed analysis of the SPI results to determine the optimum print parameters.

“By working together with Koh Young, we are able to bring a valuable asset to the MPM printer line that will bring added performance to our customers and will reduce setup time and save process engineering time,” said Wayne Wang, ITW EAE Printer Group Business Manager. “While this is a great step forward, we are continuing our work with Koh Young to bring additional KPO technologies to the MPM line.”

Live demonstrations of MPM printers will be taking place in the ITW EAE booth each day during Productronica (Hall A4, Booth 554).

Evaluation of Stencil Technology for Miniaturization

12/22/2017 | Neeta Agarwal, et al.*
SMT stencil printing technology continually evolves to keep pace with device miniaturization technologies. Printed circuit board assemblers have numerous new technology options to choose from, and need to determine the most effective ones to produce the highest quality and most reliable solder interconnections.

Solder Printing Process Inputs Impacting Distribution of Paste Volume

12/14/2017 | Marco Lajoie and Alain Breton, C-MAC Microelectronics
The volume of solder deposition, like any process, has variations that may be characterized by a statistical distribution curve, whether normal or non-normal. As complexity, density, cost and reliability requirements increase, there may be value in narrowing the distribution curve. It is common sense that less variation serves the interest of quality of the more complex and dense circuit boards.
