Chandler, Arizona – Koh Young Technology, the leading global manufacturer of 3D-based inspection solutions for the electronics industry, is pleased to announce that Mr. David Suh, Applications Team Leader, will present the white paper “Using Analytics to Overcome Production Challenges and Enable a Smart Factory” at the i4.0 Connect Forum, organized in cooperation with IPC and i4.0, scheduled to take place November 6-7, 2018 in Silicon Valley, California.
The electronics industry is acutely aware of the manufacturing challenges faced because of a shortage of skilled employees. While leading industry organizations like IPC are tackling the issue with education and training initiatives, it is not enough. Equipment suppliers, including Koh Young Technology need to work diligently to strengthen Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communication implementation. Initiatives like the IPC CFX and IPC-Hermes-9852 standards underpin the efforts within the industry to develop a transparent factory floor. These M2M communication standards, guided in part by Industry 4.0, are quickly altering the manufacturing process by improving metrics like first pass yield and throughput by applying autonomous process adjustments. Far beyond an simple line changeover, this two-way communication will allow equipment to automatically adjust production parameters to increase board quality and lower costs. As part of this mission, Koh Young designed a software suite called KSMART, as the foundation for a smart factory.
In addition to sponsoring the forum and sharing our smart factory expertise at the i4.0 Connect Forum, Koh Young will also be available to discuss its latest production and process innovations. We welcome show attendees to visit us and understand why so many manufacturers turn to Koh Young for inspection challenges.
