Koh Young Technology to Unveil Next-Generation Full 3D AOI Solution at IPC APEX EXPO


Reading time ( words)

Koh Young Technology will introduce its next-generation full 3D AOI at IPC APEX Expo. Beyond the technical inspection advancements, the Zenith 2 includes AI-driven automated programming software that reduces programming time by 70%. Koh Young will highlight the new platform in booth 2733 at 2018 IPC APEX Expo from February 24 to March 1, 2018 in the San Diego Convention Center.

The Zenith 2 combines Koh Young’s advanced vision algorithms with innovative technological advancements like 3D side view cameras and quad-array DLP projectors for 3D measurement up to 25mm tall. The new cameras further enhance the defect identification capabilities across a wide range of components including leadless chips, connectors, SOJs, and QFNs, as well as partially shielded components. With the help of dynamic illumination control and its ability to measure the distance and angles of inspection objects, the Zenith 2 reduces defects by identifying foreign material across the entire board surface. Koh Young’s latest 3D AOI system is advancing towards unprecedented quality by improving defect identification and increasing quality control. Additionally, auto-verification solutions further reduce machine downtime.

The next-generation 3D AOI platform is more efficient than its predecessor, and advanced features like Auto Programming make it more intelligent than before. The AI-powered Auto Programming software simplifies inspection condition programming, while making programming faster too. Now, operators simply click on a component, and then the system instantly measures the selected component. Based on the measurement results, the AI-engine will propose the ideal inspection conditions from the Koh Young Template. Ultimately, Auto Programming maximizes efficiency by minimizing job creation time.

In addition, many KSMART features are readily available for the Zenith 2, which makes it a more versatile solution for continuous process improvement. For instance, SPC@KSMART increases equipment uptime by helping operators perform critical process analyses from an intuitive graphical interface. Additionally, Link@KSMART combines the images, trends, charts, and inspection results from the SPI, pre-reflow AOI, and post-reflow AOI for total line communication and process analysis.

With the release of Zenith 2, Koh Young continues to deliver pioneering, best-in-class performance, functionality, and connectivity. “The latest Zenith 2 platform addresses growing process control challenges stemming from increased product complexity,” said Juan Arango, Managing Director, Koh young Americas. “Combined with our AI-powered KSMART platform, the Zenith 2 will usher in a new era of connectivity to help our partners realize the Smart Factory.”

Koh Young will highlight a broad range of innovations, while taking part in several show activities, including topical roundtable discussions and interviews on the smart factory and inspection process.
