Koh Young Technology, the industry-leader in True 3D measurement-based inspection solutions and the premier sponsor of SMTA International, will be presenting white papers and delivering live demonstrations of its award-winning inspection and measurement solutions in Booth 925 at the Minneapolis Convention Center in Minnesota on 02-03November. The following is just a glimpse of what Koh Young will have in store for our visitors:
Automated Optical Inspection (AOI)
The Zenith 2 AOI delivers industry-leading inspection performance with True 3D measurement-based 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. We did not start with antiquated 2D technology and its inherent shortcomings. We did not simply add some 3D tech to a legacy 2D system. At Koh Young, our AOI systems measure in True 3D from the start. We find the component body based on true 3D profilometric information. Using this approach, we deliver trustworthy inspection results, regardless of substrate color, board warpage, or component variations. When our 3D measurement data meets our AI engines, we can deliver even more benefits to manufacturers.
Dispense Process Inspection (DPI)
The award-winning Neptune C+ 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 materials.
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. In short, the award-winning KSMART software suite seamlessly turns data into insight to help manufacturers improve the process.
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.
The partnerships at Koh Young go beyond combining our SPI and AOI machines with printers and mounters from other industry leaders. The MFX5 Smart Factory & Automation session beginning at 1:30pm CST includes a collaboration white paper between Koh Young America, AEGIS Software, and the IPC-2581 (DPMX) Consortium. During the session, Ivan Aduna, Global MES Manager at Koh Young will present how to securely exchange data between design and manufacturing using the Digital Product Model Exchange (IPC-2581 DPMX) and Connected Factory Exchange (IPC-2591 CFX) standards.
