Koh Young Technology, the industry’s leading smart factory solutions provider, will highlight latest process optimization solution with its KY8030-3 3D SPI for solder paste printing at IPC APEX EXPO 2019 show during 29-31 January 2019 at the San Diego convention center. The Koh Young Process Optimizer (KPO) solution is a comprehensive process optimization solution suite, which maximizes throughput and increases ROI by recommending optimal print parameters.
The Koh Young Process Optimizer (KPO), which recently accepted the award for Best Process Control Software at the Mexico EMS Technology Award ceremony, is Koh Young’s long-awaited realization of the desire to contribute to the evolution of industrial innovations. KPO, comprised of several interlinking software modules, automatically analyzes SPI data in real-time, recommends print parameters based on DOE results, and alerts operators to print process issues with real-time AI-based monitoring of SPI results. An intuitive, graphical user interface puts real-time data analytics at the forefront (Figure 1).

By incorporating Koh Young’s true 3D measurement data, KPO allows manufacturers to quantitatively manage printer settings and optimization time without highly experienced operators. Beyond its industry-leading accuracy, KPO verifies DOE-tested parameters with new DOE Reliability Report; which shows how reliable conducted DOE is before recommending the optimal parameters. The engine also allows the user to remove and rerun outliers to enhance the reliability and the fitness of DOE modelling. With KPO, SPI goes far beyond catching good board/bad board.
Moreover, Koh Young will also show the latest KSMART solution, which leverages true 3D measurement data to help manufacturers operate lines more efficiently. For instance, the LM@KSMART (Library Manager) module simultaneously deploys stored programs and inspection conditions across multiple lines, while RTM@KSMART (Real Time Monitoring) displays relevant process parameters to remote locations for immediate analysis. The latest KSMART solution performs with improved usability and versatility, where users can simply click through menus to drill down into details for the information needed.
As the absolute leader in the SPI and AOI market with over 13,000 machines delivered worldwide, Koh Young will showcase a broad set of its latest developments, including the new KY-P3 pin inspection solution and Meister D semiconductor solution. Koh Young will also take part in several show activities like topical roundtable discussions and interviews on the smart factory and inspection process. If you cannot attend the show to visit Koh Young at booth 1908.
