South Korean 3D measurement-based inspection solutions provider Koh Young has announced it will be celebrating its 20-year anniversary in May 2022. The company began 20 years ago as a team of just ten engineers, “From being a newcomer in the inspection industry to the global leader in the SPI market took us just three years. This accomplishment is – without doubt – thanks to our team, our customers, and our partners,” said Dr. Kwangill Koh, Founder and CEO of Koh Young Technology.
The company explained that in the early 2000s, machines were not dependable enough to inspect printed solder paste or mounted components, so a human worker had to sit at the line, stare at each solder brick and component on a board, and then identify defects with their eyes under a magnifying lens. “The industry had to replace this manual process with an inspection machine designed with enough software intelligence to substitute a human mind with more accuracy than the human eye. Now, our 3D inspection systems are the de facto standard for inspection and have revolutionized the electronics manufacturing industry.“
“Inventing an innovative technology and shifting an industry paradigm is not a road often taken, yet Koh Young will gladly hop on the path,” said Dr. Koh. “The unyielding commitment and fighting spirit required to take such paths are in our DNA.”
