Koh Young SPI Dispenses Solder Paste for 0402M (01005) Microchips

Sep 04, 2018

Seoul, South Korea – Flexible SMT production has entered into a new dimension. Koh Young Technology’s 3D SPI (Solder Paste Inspection) system has now expanded its solution to perform complex dispensing. Koh Young highlighted the latest innovations, including its new high-precision, integrated dispenser for the KY8030-3 3D SPI in Stand 1F45 at NEPCON South China, which occurred August 28-30, 2018 in Shenzhen, China.

Insufficient solder paste is a common defect in electronics assembly due in part to stencil design challenges stemming from component geometries and decreasing pad sizes. Increasing component density and tighter tolerances further complicate solder paste deposition. Insufficient solder can result in a weak solder joint, which will develop stress cracks on solder joints. The cost implications quickly accumulate, especially when multiple boards prototypes are manufactured in high volume. If defective, all the PCB must be cleaned, reprinted, or scrapped – all increasing production costs. Using the KY8030-3 SPI system to identify solder issues, and then dispense additional solder can eliminate these repair costs.

The state-of-the-art Koh Young KY8030-3 can perform the function of multiple machines. It becomes a dispensing solution when the Auto Repair feature is added; yet, it maintains its 3D SPI capabilities to accurately identify defects and root causes, especially when combined with powerful KSMART SPC features. An integrated dispenser within the KY8030-3 achieves micrometer precision and delivers dispensing capability for 0402M (01005) pads and larger. The Koh Young Auto Repair feature provides superior design benefits to maximize profitability and improve ROI.

The 3D inspection leader also highlighted 3D Zenith AOI, as well as new solutions like for 3D Pin inspection (KY-P3) and 3D machining optical inspection (Infy). The new KY-P3 delivers true 3D inspection for various types of pin connections with unsurpassed accuracy. This latest innovative system provides fast inspection setting and modification based on quantified inspection results.

Additionally, Koh Young demonstrated how its integrated KSMART solutions establish perfect data feedback using quality data. The KSMART solution is a measurement-based process analysis solution, which allows manufacturers to implement industry 4.0 with reliable full 3D measurement data. This year, Koh Young highlighted key features of KSMART solutions like SPC@KSMART, Link@KSMART, OPO@KSMART (Offline Programming Optimizer), LM@KSMART (Library Manager), RTM@KSMART (Real-time Monitoring), and RMS@KSMART (Remote Monitoring System).
