Koh Young, the industry leader in True 3D measurement-based inspection solutions, is excited to explain how process optimization maximizes efficiency to improve production performance for electronics manufacturers. On 16 March, Koh Young will present its first sessions for registered attendees in the Americas and China, followed by additional sessions for European and Southeast Asian attendees on 23 March. The Koh Young speaker will deliver the presentation in the local language. Our panel of experts will be available following the presentation to field process optimization questions during a live panel session after the presentation, so be sure to register for the session most desirable.
During the presentation, we will explore the trends, technologies and challenges related to process optimization and performance improvement by incorporating real-world applications and solutions. Attendees will learn about exclusive solutions from Koh Young that improves electronics manufacturing yield and production quality across several stages of the circuit board assembly production process.
Register now for the online seminar through Koh Young's website. During registration, you may submit specific questions for our panel of experts to address during the live Q&A session.

Alpha Circuit is a PCB fabricator located in Elmhurst, Illinois. Given that the launch of a new PCB fab is a rare occasion these days, we caught up with the senior team—Prashant Patel, president and CEO; Steve Smith, general manager; Steve Ryan, sales and direct support—guiding the buildout of Alpha Circuit’s brand new 44,000 square foot facility. They discuss what goes into equipment selection and line design, and the timing couldn’t have been better. At press time, the new facility was on schedule for test production by the end of January 2023.

With machine installs somewhere in the range of 500 new annually and award-winning customer and field service, Koh Young has a commanding perspective on the evaluation, purchase, and installation processes for new equipment. We spoke with Mitchell Kim, applications engineer manager; Brent Fischthal, senior manager of Americas marketing and regional sales; and David Nemeth, Koh Young’s service manager for the U.S. and Canada, on what they see as the best practices for acquiring the right capital equipment.

Nolan Johnson talks with Senior Product Manager Chris Nash of Indium Corporation, who discusses Durafuse LT, a novel solder paste mixed alloy system with highly versatile characteristics that enable energy savings, high-reliability, low-temperature, step soldering, and assemblies with large temperature gradients. It also provides superior drop shock performance to conventional low-temperature solders, outclassing BiSn or BiSnAg alloys, and performing better than SAC305 with optimum process setup.
