Key Features

Circuit boards are becoming more complex with new products. An AOI machine is becoming even more crucial to the electronics manufacturing lines. The industry has many2D, 2.5D and pseudo-3D inspection options that only compound issues with false calls and escapes. The Zenith AOI Series is the only machine that delivers True 3D Inspection to address solutions caused by highly specular packages and shadows from adjacent parts.

The Zenith AOI Series is the only solution in the industry to base its inspection criteria according to IPC-610 standards for electronic assembly acceptability requirements. It provides clear and precise AOI measurements to accurately identify multiple defects such as missing solder, offset, polarity, upside down, OCV/OCR, solder fillet, billboarding, lifted lead, lifted body, tombstone, bridging, and more. Because it uses a quantitative True 3D measurement-based approach, the system delivers exceptional accuracy and repeatability.

Through Koh Young’s proprietary vison algorithms, the Zenith Series can quantify the exact height of a solder joint. Despite shadows or interreflection challenges, the Zenith accurately inspects and measures according to IPC-610 standards for electronic assembly acceptability requirements.

Industry-leading 3D profilometry technology converges with Koh Young’s proprietary AI technology to deliver true automatic programming. The innovative geometry-based Koh Young Auto Programming (KAP) software solution reduces the programming process to minimizes time to production and reduces costs.

Koh Young pioneered True 3D measurement technology 20 years ago to create a zero-defect future. This gave rise to KSMART Solutions and its continuous efforts to leverage data and connectivity.

KSMART Solutions uses Artificial Intelligence to help automate process control while focusing on data management, analysis, and optimization. It collects data from across the factory line for defect detection, real-time optimization, enhance decisions, and traceability to improve metrics, increase quality, and lower costs by eliminating variance, false calls, and escapes.

Koh Young is driven to help customers achieve a Zero-defect mounting process. Based on Koh Young’s accurate True 3D measurement data and its proprietary deep learning technology, Koh Young Process Optimizer (KPO) Mounter solution enables real-time mounting process optimization. It automatically analyze heads, nozzles, feeders, reels, and components to identify the issue, and then details the mounting parameters necessary to correct the fundamental problems.

Using AI-based analysis, KPO Mounter provides users with actionable insights. With KPO Printer solution, KPO Mounter can enhance your production quality and maximizes productivity to minimize cost of ownership, increase product quality, and maximize productivity.

Koh Young 3D AOI Zenith delivers perfect inspection performance with true 3D measurement technology. We identify the component body based on true 3D profilometric information. Using this approach, we can provide trustworthy inspection results, regardless of component or board color variations.
