Atlanta, GA – Koh Young America highlighted its Smart Factory solutions and industry leading Full 3D inspection solutions at an open house exposition in Guadalajara, Mexico in conjunction with its sales partner Repstronics. The company showed how its industry-leading 3D measurement systems and closed-loop process solutions can help improve production throughput and yield. With the industry focusing on Industry 4.0 connectivity solutions, the event is sure to impress attendees.
Koh Young is leading the effort to harness the power of connectivity and create a smart factory. For instance, its Koh Young Process Optimizer (KPO) uses AI-powered machine learning to drive interlinking software modules that exercise complex algorithms to actively optimize the print process with real-time data to recommend ideal parameters.
It also delivers real-time performance diagnostics with AI-powered anomaly detection algorithms to identify and alert users of print process issues and trends.
The event also showrf the AI-powered Koh Young Auto Programming (KAP) system. The revolutionary tool proposes the recommended inspection conditions based on 3D measured data, which not only simplifies inspection condition programming, but makes it faster. KAP reduces job preparation by up to 70 percent, which makes it an ideal solution for high-mix, low-volume or time-sensitive applications. Additionally, Machine-to-Machine (M2M) connectivity drives the smart factory vision one step further by enabling automatic SMT line adjustments. Finally, working with its printer and mounter partners, Koh Young has developed the connectivity tools to connect with multiple suppliers and simplify communication across the entire PCBA line.
During the open house, Koh Young America and Repstronics demonstrated the industry’s fastest true 3D measurement and inspection solution. The 8030-3 Solder Paste Inspection (SPI) solution used data analytics to eliminate false calls and boost throughput.
Using its world-class 3D AOI measurement technology as the foundation, Koh Young designed the KY-P3 for automated pin inspection. The KY-P3 provides repeatable pin inspection for single, array, forked, press-fit, and other arrangements. Following its vision to “Measure Everything, Everywhere,” the Koh Young product portfolio continues to expand into new frontiers.
“We are excited to open our doors to registered guests who are eager to learn why so many manufacturers here in Mexico rely on Koh Young for process and quality improvement solutions,” said Ramon Hernandez, Country Manager for Mexico and South America at Koh Young America. With the help of Repstronics, we can show how our machines integrate with an entire SMT line to improve production capabilities for our customers.”
Koh Young was named one of the 10 Most Innovative Smart Factory Solution Providers to Watch in 2019 and earned a position in “Headlines 500”, an annual list of the fastest-growing U.S. companies. As the recognized leader in electronics measurement and inspection, Koh Young continues to expand its capabilities to solve industry challenges and improve the measurement industry.
