4. Meister S: Premium In-line 3D Inspection Systems for Ultra-thin Solder Paste Inspection

  • Superior Flux Inspection: Combining innovative vision algorithms and high- resolution optics for the semiconductor industries, the Meister S goes beyond solder paste inspection. It is a proven solution for flux inspection.
    • Market-proven Ultra-thin Solder Inspection: The Meister S has been qualified for mass production by major semiconductor foundries and micro-LED companies for solder inspection down to 10um with superior Full 3D inspection performance.

5.      Meister D: The Industry’s Leading Inspection Systems for Advanced Packaging

  • Crack Inspection: The Meister D is a solution targeting die and small MLCCs using an integrated measurement tool with a defect analysis software based on advanced optics and AI engines. The system inspects micro cracks, chipping, foreign materials, and more.

6.      Zenith F: The Industry’s Best-in-Class True 3D AOI Solution for FPCB Assembly

  • FPCB Substrate Handling: The Zenith F is the ideal solution for high-volume FPCB inspection. Due to the thinner and pliable nature of the flexible printed circuit boards, special handling with dedicated expertise is required in comparison to traditional printed circuit boards.
    • True 3D Hotbar Inspection: The Zenith F is the industry’s only solution to base its inspection criteria on the IPC-610 standards using True 3D inspection performance for hotbar soldering.

7.      Zenith Alpha: The Best Value 3D Automated Optical Inspection Solution

  • KAP (Koh Young Auto Programming): The innovative geometry-based KAP software solution reduces the programming process to minimize time to production and reduces costs.
    • Whole-board Foreign Material Inspection (WFMI): Inspection goes beyond components and solder joints. The Zenith Alpha combines 2D with True 3D to identify foreign material such as burr, solder balls, chips, and other debris that may lead to costly field failures.

8.      KY-P3: Breakthrough in 3D Automated Pin Inspection Solutions

  • Versatile Handling Mechanisms: Handling products at the back-end process has proven to be a challenge, yet Koh Young provides a perfect product lineup with versatile handling mechanisms. It offers multiple board and carrier handling solutions to accommodate multiple types of PCBs, connectors, terminals, and even final assemblies with housing pins.

9.      KSMART Solutions: True Smart Factory Solution

  • Turning Data into Insights: AI-powered KSMART solutions help automate process control while focusing on data management, analysis, and optimization. It collects data from across the factory for defect detection, real-time optimization, enhanced decisions, and traceability to improve metrics, increase quality, and lower costs by eliminating variances, false calls, and escapes.
  • Converts Data into Knowledge for effective and quality-driven actions
    • Deliver an AI-powered process analysis and optimization tool
    • Achieve an autonomous process optimization facility
