Koh Young Technology helps manufacturers improve quality and productivity by adding automated solder paste dispensing to its KY8030-3 3D SPI (solder paste inspection). The company will demonstrate the high-precision, user-friendly dispensing system on the KY8030-3 at the upcoming IPC APEX Expo 2018, which is scheduled for February 24 to March 1, 2018 at the San Diego Convention Center. Koh Young will be in Booth 2733.
Industry experts agree, screen printing generally accounts for 70−80% of printed circuit board assembly defects. With greater design and assembly challenges, including the widespread use of fine-pitch components and microchips, insufficient solder has become a significant problem. This issue causes multiple challenges like open joints and lean fillets, as well as weak joints susceptible to breaking during subsequent assembly processes, transportation, or even field use. The defect is costly, but can be automatically repaired with the KY8030-3 dispensing solution.
Koh Young has introduced a solution to the problem with its high-performance Auto Repair feature. An integrated dispenser within the KY8030-3 prevents insufficient solder, so manufacturers can reduce its costs by potentially eliminating board scrap or cleaning. Not only does the world's fastest 3D SPI provide accurate inspection with real-time board warp compensation, the KY8030-3 configured with the Auto Repair option enhances first pass yield and reduces operational costs. Koh Young's 3D SPI is more than an inspection system, it is a process optimizer.
Koh Young has considered system maintenance and usability in the Auto Repair system design, which extends the service and cleaning interval to upwards of seven days. For example, the syringe holder incorporates a one-touch release for easy and quick replacement. The minimized maintenance requirements improve the Return on Investment (ROI) by reducing labor and material costs. Additionally, operators can readily verify rework performance by comparing rework result. The system provides both 2D and 3D images of the pads before and after dispensing, so operators can monitor the process to make better decisions.
Koh Young Technology will demonstrate its high-speed KY8030-3 SPI system with the new Auto Repair function at the IPC APEX Expo. What's more, the company will participate in several show activities, including topical roundtable discussions and interviews on the smart factory and inspection process.
