Yamaha is the only SMT vendor with a full line solution.”

In addition to adding factory automated material delivery systems, connected factory tools, computer-controlled component storage and a full line of industrial robots to Yamaha’s already extensive lineup, it was imperative that Yamaha expanded their IM operations in the USA. Tom went on to say, “We have doubled our office capability, and increased our showroom and training/refurbishment area by 80%.  Additionally, we have increased our spare parts inventory and storage area by over 50% to accommodate our additional machines as well as to provide direct support for our many new direct and corporate accounts.”

In the past year, Yamaha has increased direct headcount by over 20% and added 3 new distinct product lines to their portfolio. With a dedicated team of service engineers, applications engineers, technical support personnel and sales people, the IM Team now has room to grow even further in 2019 and beyond.

What’s Driving AOI Innovation and Collaboration?

03/25/2020 | Brent Fischthal, Koh Young America
When we look at the optical inspection market growth trajectory, we can see how process challenges helped create innovations. For example, solder paste inspection (SPI) has undergone a shift from 2D to 3D because the 2D inspection technologies manufacturers traditionally used to collect solder deposit images could not solve shadowing problems. Thus, companies developed 3D SPI to capture the printed solder paste height to accurately measure the total volume of paste printed. Several years later, we see the same need for surface-mounted component inspection with AOI systems.

Trends From the Show: Solder and Software

03/18/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
In my role as a media representative, my perspective on IPC APEX EXPO may be a bit different from that of many attendees. Since the I-Connect007 team had the opportunity to talk to many attendees and exhibitors and listen to their stories over the course of the week, our view can be particularly wide. When I reflected on all the conversations, pieces from all throughout the week coalesced and provided a different understanding of and takeaway from the show.
