Koh Young Technology Celebrates 15 Years of Success in Providing Total 3D Inspection Solutions

Reading time ( words)

KY.JPGKoh Young Technology marked 15 years of continuous success in providing Total 3D inspection solutions to SMT/PCB assembly and other manufacturing industries. Koh Young celebrated its 15th Foundation Day on May 1, 2017. Established in 2002, Koh Young has led the industry in providing the world’s most advanced 3D measurement quality assurance solutions, including its market-leading Solder Paste Inspection (SPI) and Automated Optical Inspection (AOI) systems.

In making the announcement, Dr. Kwangill Koh, CEO of Koh Young stated, “As our business and market share has expanded, Koh Young has enjoyed exponential growth, with more than 450 employees currently worldwide.”

Dr. Kwangill Koh added, “Today, nearly 2,000 global customers from almost all industries are using our 3D inspection solutions to optimize their production processes and turn out the highest quality products. We attribute this phenomenal success to Koh Young’s cutting-edge technology; for the last 15 years, Koh Young has always been the global leader in 3D inspection technology.” Dr. Kwangill Koh stated that Koh Young has significantly improved accuracy and repeatability in the inspection process, introducing the world’s first 2-way 3D SPI in 2004 in the KY-3030 series. Koh Young has also maintained its Number One position in global SPI after releasing 4-way 3D SPI technology in 2006. Koh Young continues to be unrelenting in its pursuit of R&D and continuous product improvement.

Within a relatively short period of time, Koh Young has shifted the prevailing industry paradigm through continuous innovation from two-dimensional (2D) to 3D inspection technology, a quantum advance inspection capability and quality. 3D was first embodied in Koh Young’s Zenith, the world’s first true 3D AOI system, introduced in 2010. Zenith measures the true profilometric shape of components, solder joints, patterns and even foreign materials on assembled PCBs, overcoming shortcomings of 2D AOI and enabling significant process optimization and integration.

More recently, Koh Young has used its comprehensive know-how in processing 3D measurement data to develop its KSMART Solution, which enables Smart Factory realization and opens the door to Industry 4.0. KSMART solution not only helps tracing defect root cause by connecting inspection results from its inspection systems, but is also becoming ever more intelligent with IP (Intelligent Platform) – its own AI (Artificial Intelligence) platform.

Nolan’s Notes: Driving Cost Out of the Supply Chain

04/28/2021 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Supply chain issues have become mainstream news as virtually all supply chains were affected in some manner by the pandemic lockdowns. The interactions of supply, demand, and distribution became a topic of scrutiny even for my 80-something parents; we all became experts at understanding supply chain when we had to explain exactly why toilet paper was peculiarly absent from store shelves, while there was plenty of liquor still available. The vagaries of the distribution chain for all sorts of daily necessities suddenly became our concern; we no longer could take the supply chain for granted.
