Koh Young Technology, the leading 3D measurement inspection solutions provider, will show advanced Artificial Intelligence-based inspection solutions at the IPC APEX Expo during 29-31 January 2019. As ‘Your Partner for Smart Factory Realization,’ Koh Young will feature its new Zenith 2 AOI platform, which adapts the Koh Young Artificial Intelligence (AI) engine to simplify programming and extend inspection coverage.
The Zenith 2 combines Koh Young’s advanced vision algorithms with innovative side-view optics for SMT industry applications. The latest platform incorporates Koh Young’s side view inspection technology that expands component height measurement and further enhances defect identification capabilities. Zenith 2 can quickly detect and analyze defects across a wide range of components, including leadless chips, connectors, SOJs, and QFNs.
Additionally, the next-generation 3D AOI is more efficient than its predecessor with AI-powered features like Koh Young Auto Programming (KAP). The Auto Programming AI engine 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 applications.
Additionally, Koh Young will show how AI can be used to improve image quality. Restoring noisy images is an important processing step in many SMT applications, which allows accurate measurement and analysis. Koh Young’s latest AOI system presents a new quality-guided approach for denoising 3D images by improving height data quality with AI algorithms.
