Reading time ( words)

Once again, Koh Young Technology, the industry leader in True3D™ measurement-based inspection solutions, was recognized by the Financial Times as a FT500 High-Growth Company (Asia-Pacific). Established in 2002, Koh Young Technology pioneered a new market by launching the world’s first 3D Solder Paste Inspection (SPI) system using a patented dual-projection Moiré technique. Since then, we have become a global leader with our 3D measurement-based inspection equipment, as well as a solutions provider that performs a key role in quality management and process optimization for various industries. Based on this differentiated technological competitiveness, we have secured thousands of customers, while maintaining the largest global market share in the 3D SPI and 3D AOI markets.

With an aim to quickly respond to the needs of global customers, Koh Young Technology, which has its headquarters in South Korea, established overseas sites in eight countries: United States, Mexico, Germany (covering Europe), Japan, Singapore, China, Vietnam, and Canada. Currently, our overseas sites are the basis for sales and service networks. Overseas sites are actively carrying out R&D activities, matching the regional needs of each country.

Based on the unrivaled competitiveness of our 3D measurement-based inspection technology, Koh Young Technology has developed 3D Machining and Assembling Optical Inspection (MOI), 3D Dispensing Process Inspection (DPI), Semiconductor Packaging Inspection (MEISTER Series), and Medical Robotic System for Brain Surgeries (KYMERO), in addition to our pioneering 3D SPI and 3D AOI systems for inspecting Surface Mount Technology (SMT). By developing such technologies, Koh Young Technology will continue its expansion in new business areas. Additionally, through customer-centric innovative R&D activities, we will discover future business items and, by doing so, take the lead in the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

This Month in SMT007 Magazine—Continuous Improvement: As Simple as X = Xc – 1

01/04/2021 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
X=Xc – 1 is a conceptual equation for continuous improvement. You define X and work to reduce it by a factor of 1. This could be one work hour, one process step, one day less in a cycle, and so on. We recently met with Dr. Ron Lasky to discuss the concept of X=Xc – 1 and get his advice on generating enthusiasm among readers and the next generation about continuous improvement. As this discussion illustrates, many process improvements are small in scale, not yearlong, major efforts.

SMTA Europe Solder Finish Webinar Addresses Defects Causes and Cures

12/14/2020 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
“What is your most common PCB problem?” A survey conducted by Bob Willis had revealed finish solderability to be the predominant contender, and it was clear that the choice of solderable finish applied to surface mount boards could have a significant effect on the assembly yield and cost of the final circuit. SMTA Europe organised an informative and enlightening webinar this month entitled “Guide to PCB Solder Finishes—Process Defects Causes and Cures,” with soldering specialist Bob Willis as presenter.
