Atlanta, Georgia – Koh Young Technology, the industry leader in True 3D measurement-based inspection solutions, will discuss the benefits of combining IPC-DPMX with IPC-CFX to deliver data directly to machines and streamline the process. Mr. Ivan Aduna, Global MES Manager at Koh Young America, will present the whitepaper on Thursday, 03 November 2022, during the MFX5 Smart Factory & Automation Technical Session during SMTA International in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

The paper, a collaboration with Michael Ford from AEGIS Software and Hemant Shah, the IPC-DPMX Consortium Chair, will outline how to securely exchange data between design and manufacturing areas by using the Digital Product Model Exchange (IPC-2581 DPMX) and Connected Factory Exchange (IPC-2591 CFX) standards. This combination will help electronics manufacturers improve efficiency, security, and costs. 

IPC-DPMX is a standard for transmitting information between a printed circuit board designer and a manufacturing or assembly facility. For nearly every step in the process, IPC-DPMX offers a standard to help companies ensure superior manufacturability, quality, reliability, and consistency. IPC-CFX is an industry-developed open standard forming the backbone of a smart factory. IPC-CFX is a plug-and-play solution that simplifies and standardizes machine-to-machine communication, while helping machine-to-business and business-to-machine applications.

Traditionally, it could take days for manufacturers to compile the necessary files needed for production. Worse, the outdated formats may exclude critical elements like stack-ups, materials, design intent, and more. With IPC-DPMX, what took days, now takes minutes thanks to an intelligent data exchange. “The IPC-DPMX and IPC-CFX combination provides production flexibility and security while driving the movement towards Industry 4.0,” said Ivan.
