Koh Young Introduces the Next-Generation Process Optimizer at Productronica

Enabled by the Koh Young proprietary Intelligent Platform, KSMART Process Optimizer (KPO) leads closed-loop control solutions with adaptive learning. Combining real-time process monitoring with print parameters, KPO actively optimizes the process to boost yield and enable smart factories. KPO is comprised of three modules. The Print Advisor Module (PAM) uses diagnostic algorithms to automatically generate print parameter guidelines. The Printer Diagnostic Module (PDM) uses multiple anomaly-detection algorithms to actively optimize the print process and reduce false calls. The Printer Optimizer Module (POM) uses our adaptive learning engine to generate models that optimize process parameters. KPO improves SPI utilization, while providing print process recommendations.

To learn more about the innovative KPO software solution, visit Koh Young in Hall A2, Booth 377.

Don’t Just Store Components – Dry Them…Safely

It is possible to "reset" device floor life by removing the moisture, but it must be done under carefully controlled conditions to retain solder-ability and usefulness. XSDR Reset Cabinets from Super Dry Totech® bring unprecedented process control to component drying.

 •  Multiple batch management including automatic or manual recipes
 •  Two separate chambers with two different temperatures available
 •  Maintenance free 1% RH
 •  20 different batches automatically tracked
 •  Prevent oxidation and intermetallic growth

A World of Dispensing and Conformal Coating Innovations from Nordson ASYMTEK

Demonstrations of a broad spectrum of new dispensing and conformal coating products and technologies from Nordson ASYMTEK usher in increased capabilities for electronics manufacturers. Two new dispensing platforms, the Helios™ bulk and two-component dispensing system and the Vantage™ dispensing and jetting system, enable new levels of speed, accuracy and the ultimate in process control. For coating, a modular coating line, including automated coating inspection and an integrated oven, give real-time Cpk for Industry 4.0. A 2-component coating feeding system provides in-line fluid mixing with process controls, the new SC-350 is a select spray applicator for exacting edge definition, and the Conexis® conformal coating system offers affordable efficiency.

See these advances and more on the web and at the show in Hall A2, Booth 345.
