Koh Young, Repstronics Hosting Joint Webinar

Reading time ( words)

In cooperation with its Mexico Sales Partner Repstronics, Koh Young, the industry leader in True3D measurement-based inspection solutions, is hosting a FREE Spanish webinar to help customers create smarter factories with AI-powered inspection solutions. The online seminar will begin at 1:00PM EST on Wednesday, 23 March 2022. Given the expected attendance for this trending topic, pre-registration for the free webinar is required.

Description automatically generated “Right now, inspection plays an increasingly key role in making manufacturing smarter. Inspection allows us to deliver the quality we know is essential for the products being manufactured right now, and in the future,” commented Brent Fischthal, Senior Marketing Manager at Koh Young America. “It is providing the data that allow companies to improve their own performance and efficiency. Data from inspection is contributing to almost every process on the SMT line, supplying real insight into defects, as well as their root cause.”

An industry dynamic changing the SMT line—and the whole manufacturing world—is the use of data to manage the process and drive towards a smart factory. This trend has helped manufacturers connect equipment and processes, so they can integrate the inspection data from solder paste inspection (SPI) and automated optical inspection (AOI) to improve electronics production metrics. Tools such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) are used to analyze large data streams and produce better, faster decision-making that augments the operator by offering a path to autonomous manufacturing where the line will self-manage and improve its own performance. For companies to succeed in the development of a smart factory, manufacturers will need inspection solutions and equipment partners who can combine inspection and measurement expertise with machine-to-machine connectivity and AI.

“Reliable inspection systems have become powerful, economical complements to traditional test strategies. For example, SPI and AOI machines can be connected to the printer and mounter to monitor and improve the SMT production line,” stated Ramon Hernandez, Country Manager for Mexico and South America. “During this webinar, I will explore how manufacturers can optimize the PCBA [printed circuit board assembly] process by exchanging real-time SPI and AOI measurement data with other machines in the production line.”
