During productronica 2019, the I-Connect007 Editorial Team met with some of the industry's top executives, managers, and engineers.
In this video interview, Editor Nolan Johnson and Harald Eppinger, managing director at Koh Young Europe, discuss the company’s milestone of 16,000 installed systems, the Zenith Alpha, and market trends in AOI systems.
This year at productronica, Koh Young proudly introduced the True 3D AOI platform—Zenith Alpha. Leveraging its award-winning technologies, the Zenith Alpha fits myriad applications and manufacturers of all sizes. It incorporates a “smart and dynamic” feature set with AI-powered quality optimization True 3D technologies. This new system concentrates the technological insight to increase process performance and reduce line downtime. At the same time, its inherent True 3D inspection capabilities help manufacturers methodically collect, analyze, and manage data in real-time to dynamically formulate a multifaced view of the assembly process.

Nolan Johnson spoke with MIRTEC President Brian D’Amico about how the role of test and measurement equipment is changing in the smart factory and how shops can adjust to make use of the new technology. D’Amico shares this insight: “While approximately 90% of U.S. electronics manufacturers recognize the potential of Industry 4.0 to improve productivity, many are slow to adopt smart factory solutions within the manufacturing process.”

SMTAI 2020, which was converted to a virtual event, took place from September 28–30. I attend every year, but since there was no keynote in the virtual format, I went straight to the technical conference. This event covered a broad range of topics related to everything in assembly. Over 90 technical presentations are available, but this report covers just some of the sessions I attended.

Happy Holden describes how Siemens' 12-part webinar series, “Implementing Digital Twin Best Practices From Design Through Manufacturing,” is an excellent series designed to educate the electronic manufacturing engineer on the progress of using a digital thread to improve products and performance.
