Koh Young to Unveil Next-Gen 3D AOI at productronica 2017


Reading time ( words)

Koh Young Technology will introduce its next-generation, full 3D AOI platform at productronica 2017. Under the slogan "Your Partner for Smart Factory Realization," Koh Young will feature its new Zenith 2 AOI platform, which includes AI-driven Auto Programming software that reduces programming time by 70 percent.

The Zenith 2 also combines Koh Young's advanced vision algorithms with innovative side view optics for the SMT industry. The latest platform incorporates Koh Young's unparalleled side view solution to expand height measurement and further enhance defect identification capabilities. Zenith 2 quickly detects and analyzes defects on a wide range of components including leadless chips, connectors, SOJs, and QFNs. Additionally, auto-verification solutions reduce machine downtime.

The next-generation 3D AOI platform is more efficient than its predecessor, and advanced features like Auto Programming make it more intelligent than ever before. The AI-powered Auto Programming software not only simplifies inspection condition programming, this innovation make programming faster too. Now, operators simply click on a component, and then the system will instantly measure the selected component. Based on the measurement results, the AI-engine will propose the ideal inspection conditions from the Koh Young Template. Ultimately, Auto Programming maximizes efficiency by minimizing job creation time.

In addition, many KSMART features are readily available for the Zenith 2, which makes it a more versatile solution for continuous process improvement. For instance, SPC@KSMART increases equipment uptime by helping operators perform critical process analyses from an intuitive graphical interface. Additionally, Link@KSMART combines the images, trends, charts, and inspection results from the SPI, pre-reflow AOI, and post-reflow AOI for complete line communication and process analysis.

With the release of Zenith 2, Koh Young will again deliver pioneering, best-in-class performance, functionality, and connectivity. "The new Zenith 2 platform addresses many of the industry demands for simplified programming and enhanced inspection of complex assemblies," said Harald Eppinger, General Manager of Koh Young Europe. "Combined with our AI-powered KSMART platform, the Zenith 2 will usher in a new era of connectivity to help our partners realize the Smart Factory."

As the absolute leader in the SPI and AOI markets, Koh Young will display a broad sampling of its latest developments, as well as participate in several show activities, including topical roundtable discussions and interviews on the smart factory and inspection process.
