Koh Young America is sharing its insights about the Smart Factory in an online seminar scheduled at 10:45am EST on 12 May 2020 in a panel focused on the progress electronics manufacturers have made to implement a smart factory. Leveraging his background in mechatronics, embedded systems, and software development, Ivan Aduna will highlight how has been helping Koh Young customers adopt smart factory solutions. His perspective from theoretical and applied use cases positions him with the ability to understand, adapt, and implement software advancements across the printed circuit board assembly industry.

As the recognized leader in electronics measurement and inspection, Koh Young continues to expand its capabilities to solve industry challenges and improve the measurement industry, including smart factory technologies. “Koh Young passionately believes in the power of a Smart Factory and is focused on its adoption by electronics manufacturers – both big and small. The cost, time, and quality benefits to manufacturers and customers alike underpin the value of the smart factory. We are excited to discuss the gateway that can help companies transition to a smart factory concept,” commented Brent A. Fischthal, Sr. Marketing Manager for Koh Young America. In fact, Koh Young was named one of the 10 Most Innovative Smart Factory Solution Providers to Watch and earned a position in the “Headlines 500” list of the fastest-growing U.S. companies.
