Koh Young, the industry leader in True3D™ measurement-based inspection solutions, along with its Mexico sales partner Repstronics will present a free Smart Factory webinar on Wednesday, 14 October 2020 at 11:00AM CDT (GMT -5). Register today to secure your seat in the virtual event and understand how to leverage AOI measurement data to increase productivity, improve quality, and reduce costs. Be part of the digital transformation and move to Industry 4.0!

The electronics industry is battling the challenges manufacturers are facing due to a shortage of workers with the necessary skill to fill needed positions. While leading industry organizations are tackling the issue with education programs, training initiatives, and industry standards, we must do more. Equipment suppliers like Koh Young are working diligently to expedite the adoption and implementation of equipment communication standards to help manufacturers adopt the framework for a smart factory. These machine to machine (M2M) communication standards, guided in part by Industry 4.0, are quickly altering the manufacturing process by improving metrics like first pass yield and line throughput by helping to implement automatic process adjustments.

By converting data into information, and then into knowledge, Koh Young KSMART process control software is helping engineers make effective, quality-driven decisions. The AI-powered process analysis and improvement tools within KSMART deliver autonomous process optimization. In short, KSMART is the “Gateway to a Smart Factory.”

“I am excited to share our knowledge with registered attendees who are eager to learn how a smart factory can improve electronics production,” said Ramon Hernandez, Country Manager for Mexico and South America at Koh Young America. “With the help of Repstronics, we can show how Koh Young Smart Factory Solutions can help you detect defects, optimize in real-time, and trace products to increase quality and lower costs.”

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.

Happy’s Essential Skills: Recruiting and Interviewing

12/29/2020 | Happy Holden, I-Connect007
Printed circuit manufacturing was not one of the jobs that electrical engineers in HP wanted to do. EEs were also not the best choice for printed circuit manufacturing because chemical engineers, chemists, and mechanical engineers had more skills useful to support the PCB manufacturing process. Therefore, I was authorized to recruit external hires. To recruit chemical engineers, we went to those universities noted for their focus on industries like electronics, process control, and environmental...

Book Excerpt: The Printed Circuit Assembler’s Guide to Process Validation

12/24/2020 | Graham Naisbitt, Gen3 Systems
It is assumed that readers are familiar with manufacturing electronic circuit assemblies in accordance with IPC-J-STD-001 or IEC 61189-1; both are titled “Requirements for Soldered Electrical and Electronic Assemblies.” In October 2018, IPC-J-STD-001 Revision G was amended and released with a new Section 8 of the document titled “Cleaning.” The change was primarily the removal of a “cleanliness” level of 1.56 mg/square cm of NaCl equivalence. This small change has great significance in relation to how companies ensure the electrochemical reliability of their products.
