Koh Young Honored with Multiple Product Awards at IPC APEX EXPO

Reading time ( words)

Koh Young Technology, the industry-leader in True 3D measurement-based inspection solutions, is proud to announce the industry recognized two of its new electronics inspection innovations by awarding them the acclaimed New Product Introduction (NPI) Award from Circuits Assembly during IPC APEX EXPO. The first award is for our KPO Printer that uses Artificial Intelligence to make print process decisions without process engineering expertise. Circuits Assembly then presented Koh Young its second award for the Neptune C, which provides manufacturers with a technology path that can ensure the equipment remains useful as requirements change.

KPO Printer

Product miniaturization is driving smaller apertures, finer solders, and complex designs, which makes printing a sophisticated process with significant impact on yield. Typically, print process expert must constantly adjust print parameters to ensure a stable process. Yet, Koh Young is creating an autonomous, connected electronics manufacturing environment for defect-free production using its growing suite of AI-powered process optimization tools. KPO Printer (Koh Young Process Optimizer for Printers), which uses a proprietary Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) engine we developed locally to help machines solve print process challenges. KPO Printer exercises complex algorithms to diagnose issues, recommend parameters, and improve print quality.

Neptune C

With today’s tight margins, component scarcity, and labor shortages, production yield is more important than ever, yet limited budgets and diminished resources are pressing manufacturers to skimp on equipment and make “good enough” purchases – ignoring future needs. What happens when the process changes or customer demands increase? What happens when a new contract requires advanced inspection? Unfortunately, they have obsolete equipment. Enter “future-proofing” – the ability to remain valuable into the future without becoming obsolete. The new, cost-effective Neptune C for dispense process inspection (DPI) allows manufacturers to secure fundamental coating inspection with a minimal investment. When the process changes (as they always do), the manufacturer can field-retrofit our L.I.F.T. technology (Laser Interferometry for Fluid Tomography) for non-destructive True3D inspection. Besides coatings, it measures underfill, epoxy, bonding, and other materials. With Koh Young, manufacturers are not just future-proofing their investment, they are future-proofing their business.
