Koh Young's High Tech Tools to Boost Yield and Quality

Koh Young Technology has been leveraging cutting-edge AI and machine learning technologies in its innovative inspection solutions. Thus, the company aims to offer solutions that are not only for error detection but can also provide insights and analytics.

Koh Young Technology will showcase an array of novel inspection and measurement solutions at SMTconnect 2024 in  Nuremberg, Germany from June 11 to 13. Specifically, the company will exhibit alongside its sales partner, SmartRep, in booth 4A.225.

Solder Paste Inspection (SPI)

In 2002, Koh Young introduced the concept of 3D measurement-based solder paste inspection, revolutionizing the industry. Today, manufacturers recognize the value of 3D measurement data, utilizing it to enhance the print process. Thus, improving production yield and quality.

3D SPI has now become a standard requirement for SMT lines, no longer optional. The KY8030-2 serves as our Solder Paste Inspection workhorse, the most popular SPI solution in the electronics manufacturing market. Featuring patented dual-projection technology, Koh Young provides reliable measurement data. Hence, enabling manufacturers to optimize the print process effectively.

Automated Optical Inspection

The Koh Young 3D AOI Zenith Alpha HS+ represents a True 3D inspection solution powered by artificial intelligence and machine learning. Specifically, combining top-notch mechatronics and algorithm technologies to deliver outstanding performance without compromising accuracy.

In the realm of 2D and hybrid 3D inspection, false calls and escapes often result from inferior inspection technologies. The company adopted a distinct approach based on Automated Optical Inspection on full 3D measurement technology to address this. Moreover, the solution does not stem from a 2D inspection methodology. It’s conception started from the outset to provide unmatched inspection capabilities, eliminating false calls and field escapes.

At Koh Young, the Zenith measures all components in True 3D, assessing the component body based on genuine 3D profilometric information. In fact, this approach ensures dependable inspection results, irrespective of component or board color variations.

Combined with Koh Young’s AI engine and machine learning algorithms, the 3D measurement data enables manufacturers to benefit from autonomous processes. In addition, with automated programs, including smart review, aiding operators in identifying issues accurately.

Smart Factory Solutions

Meanwhile, AI-powered KSMART solutions facilitate process control automation, emphasizing data management, analysis, and optimization. Moreover, it gathers data from across the factory for defect detection, real-time optimization, informed decisions, and traceability, enhancing production, elevating quality, and reducing costs by eliminating variances, false calls, and escapes.
