Koh Young Technology, the industry leader in True 3D measurement-based inspection solutions, will deliver live demonstrations of its award-winning inspection and measurement solutions during the live tradeshow at EXPO Guadalajara in Jalisco, Mexico during September 21-22, 2022. The following is just a glimpse into what Koh Young has in store for our visitors:
Solder Paste Inspection (SPI)
In 2002, we introduced the concept of 3D measurement-based solder paste inspection – and it revolutionized the inspection industry. Today, manufacturers recognize the value of the 3D measurement data and use the data to improve the print process, in turn, improving production yield and quality. Today, 3D SPI has become a standard requirement for SMT lines – it is no longer optional. The KY8030-3 is our SPI workhorse, and the most popular SPI solution in the electronics manufacturing market. With a patented dual-projection technology, we deliver trustworthy and repeatable measurement data, which manufacturers can use to reliably optimize the print process.

Printing Process Optimization
The Koh Young Process Optimizer (KPO) solution is an AI-based automatic print process optimizer. This system improves the printer offset, as well as critical printer parameters like squeegee speed, print pressure, and separation speed. KPO performs an automated DOE to determine the optimum printing parameters for the best print quality. As a result, manufacturers can optimize the print process, without the need for a dedicated print process expert. Furthermore, KPO monitors and perfects parameters in real-time to guarantee quality despite environmental changes.

Automated Optical Inspection (AOI)
The Koh Young 3D AOI Zenith delivers perfect inspection performance with True 3D measurement technology. In the 2D inspection world, false calls and escapes are unavoidable. To solve this problem, we took a different approach. We based our solution on full 3D measurement technology, not 2D technology and its inherent shortcomings or 2D with some 3D capabilities bolted-on to help. At Koh Young, the Zenith measures all components in True 3D. We find the component body based on true 3D profilometric information. Using this approach, we provide trustworthy inspection results, regardless of component or board color variations. When our 3D measurement data meets artificial intelligence, we can deliver even more advantages to manufacturers.

Dispense Process Inspection (DPI)
The award-winning Neptune is the industry’s first 3D optical measurement solution for transparent material inspection. Using Koh Young LIFT technology (Laser Interferometry for Fluid Tomography), the Neptune delivers non-destructive 3D inspection to precisely measure and inspect fluids – wet or dry. With its Machine-Learning algorithm, the Neptune accurately measures materials for coverage, thickness, and consistency with a user-defined threshold setting. It also identifies bubbles, cracks, and other defects in coating. It also measures underfill, epoxy, bonding, glue, potting, flux, and more to deliver an exact measurement of transparent and translucent materials.

Process Control Software
AI-powered KSMART solutions help automate process control, while focusing on data management, analysis, and optimization. It collects data from across the factory for defect detection, real-time optimization, enhanced decisions, and traceability to improve production, increase quality, and lower costs by eliminating variances, false calls, and escapes.
