Estimated reading time: 2 minutes
ViTrox, which aims to be the world’s most trusted technology company, is thrilled to announce our participation in the SMTA Penang Chapter Expo & Tech Forum at the Eastin Hotel in Bayan Lepas, Penang, where you can find us at Table 23. This exciting in-person event will take place on the 20th and 21st of September 2023, and promises to be filled with innovation and technology.
This year, we will be showcasing our cutting-edge Industry 4.0 Manufacturing Intelligence Solutions - V-ONE, a Smart Manufacturing necessity that ensures connectivity within the production line, accurate visualisation of data analytics and adept reactivity in Machine-2-Machine (M2M) production. Among the powerful features housed in V-ONE will be the A.I. VVTS, ONE View, Hardware Monitoring, and Intelligent Control Tower.
- A.I. VVTS, our in-house A.I.-powered tool, streamlines repair station buy-off processes using machine and deep learning, enabling faster, more precise judgement with the A.I. Assisted Buy-off Process feature.
- ONE View connects data from our full SMT PCBA solutions (SPI, AOI & AXI), enabling real-time cross-referencing for enhanced production process oversight and quality assurance across all inspection machines in the SMT line.
- The AOI and AXI Hardware Monitoring features offer systematic maintenance tracking, compiling, and centralisation of crucial machine hardware data for proactive maintenance planning. It enables early issue detection, reducing downtime and servicing costs, while enhancing Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) and operational efficiency in SMT PCBA production.
- The Intelligent Control Tower facilitates real-time data analysis across multiple production lines, offering customised production impact assessments to fine-tune critical production issues, ensuring optimised performance.
Furthermore, our AXI technical specialist, Mr. Hee Wei Ken, will be presenting a technical sharing session, “Why We need A.I.?” on the second day of the expo, 21st of September 2023, from 3 PM to 3:30 PM. Since Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) has become indispensable in innovation and technology, he will be discussing the importance of A.I. in our SMT AXI System (A.I. Programming, A.I. Classification, and A.I. VVTS) and how they tackle challenging joint inspections. We believe this sharing session will help you gain a deeper knowledge and understanding of the benefits of A.I. in this industry.
Last but not least, we warmly invite you to drop by our booth, where you can explore our offerings and participate in our informative session to gain insights and interact with us. Our experts from ViTrox will be available to answer all your questions and ensure you have an incredible experience.

APCT, a leading name in the PCB and electronics industry, is delighted to announce the appointment of Peter Austin as its President and CEO, effective September 1. Peter takes the reins from former CEO, Steve Robinson, who has retired after years of dedicated service to the company.
Ever since high density interconnect (HDI) was created in 1982 by Hewlett-Packard to package its first 32-bit computer powered by a single chip, it has continued to evolve and provide the solutions for miniaturized products. The leading edge of HDI technology became the process used for organic flip-chip packaging for the semiconductor industry. The two distinct markets—IC substrates and product-system integration—are now colliding and utilizing the same ultra-HDI manufacturing processes.
