Suwon, South Korea – Koh Young was presented with the SMT China VISION Award for its Zenith 3D Automated Optical Inspection (AOI) at NEPCON China on April 24 in Shanghai, China. Koh Young was one of only six VISION Award winners within Inspection & Testing category, thanks in part for advancing the SMT industry with innovative SMT process technologies. The SMT China VISION Awards was initiated in 2007 to recognize the products that form a benchmark of excellence for the industry. Each product entry was evaluated based on their creativeness and contributions to help reduce cost, improve quality, increase efficiency, enhance reliability, ensure safety, and protect the environment. The Koh Young Zenith is the world’s first true 3D AOI system. The Zenith completely changed the prevailing industry paradigm from 2D to 3D inspection technology. It effectively measures true profilometric component shapes, foreign materials, patterns, and solder joints on assembled circuit boards to overcome the long-standing shortcomings associated with 2D AOI systems. Its patented 3D AOI technologies have perfected board warp compensation, which ensures uninterrupted real-time inspection under nearly any environment.
“We are extremely honored to receive this prestigious award from SMT China. The VISION Award presents the breadth of the global SMT leaders. Winning this award symbolizes one of our greatest achievements,” said Steven Choi, General Manager of Koh Young China.
