Koh Young to Showcase KSMART Process Optimization on MPM Printer at IPC APEX EXPO 2018


Reading time ( words)

Koh Young Technology will be demonstrating its KSMART Process Optimization (KPO) on an MPM printer at the upcoming IPC APEX EXPO in San Diego, which will be held from February 27–March 1. Koh Young will be in Booth 2733). ITW EAE, the Electronic Assembly Equipment division of ITW, is collaborating with Koh Young to bring this value added technology to its MPM printer line.

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 enables printer process optimization for higher yield 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."

Improving Design, Manufacturing and Assembly Teamwork

01/15/2018 | Syrma Technology
Many electronics manufacturers tend to compartmentalize or "silo" their departments, such as the design team versus assembly-related functions. The relationship between design and manufacturing can too often be disconnected or otherwise poor, which stalls productivity and increases bottom-line costs. By identifying and addressing these gaps, this financial hemorrhage can be reduced, and profitability increased.

Recent Innovations in DFMA
