Koh Young Process Optimizer Earns 'Best-in-Class' Technology Innovation Award

Reading time ( words)

Koh Young America proudly accepted the award for Best Process Control Software for its Koh Young Process Optimizer (KPO) solution at the Mexico EMS Technology Award ceremony held in conjunction with SMTA Guadalajara. The industry is recognizing the fact Koh Young is leading the effort to harness the power of connectivity and create smart factories. For instance, KPO uses AI-powered machine learning with interlinking software modules to execute proprietary algorithms that automatically recommends process changes.

KPO Printer Advisor Module (PAM) actively optimizes the print process with real-time printer and solder paste inspection (SPI) data to recommend ideal parameters. The complementary KPO Printer Diagnostic Module (PDM) provides real-time performance diagnostics with AI-powered variance detection algorithms to automatically identify and alert operators about print process issues and trends. Additionally, PDM analyzes programs and parameters to determine if the current printer settings can facilitate a DOE. In short, KPO ensures process reliability without dedicated print process experts.

“Looking forward, our connectivity will drive the smart factory vision one step further by enabling automatic SMT line adjustments,” said Ramon Hernandez, Country Manager for Mexico and South America at Koh Young America. “Working with our partners, we continue to develop machine process connectivity tools that connect multiple suppliers and simplify communication across the entire PCBA line.” In fact, Koh Young was named one of the 10 Most Innovative Smart Factory Solution Providers to Watch in 2019 and earned a position in “Headlines 500”, an annual list of the fastest-growing U.S. companies. As the recognized leader in electronics measurement and inspection, Koh Young continues to expand its capabilities to solve industry challenges and improve the measurement industry.

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.
