3D inspection technology leader Koh Young Technology announced today the winning of a new contract worth more than €800K for its 3D Automated Optical Inspection (AOI) and Solder Paste Inspection (SPI) systems. The customer is StarLine, a world-leading manufacturer of automobile security equipment headquartered in St. Petersburg, Russia. Founded in 1988, StarLine supplies specialized telematics security systems to more than 15 million vehicle owners worldwide.
In making the announcement, Harald Eppinger, General Manager for Koh Young Europe, stated, “These sizable orders make us believe that we should continue maintaining our market share in 3D AOI by providing continuous innovation.” Mr. Eppinger added that with this €800K order from a key OEM customer, StarLine, Koh Young adds another remarkable success to its portfolio. Koh Young Technology has earned a stellar reputation for providing reliable, responsive service to high-mix low-volume customers.
Equipment provided to StarLine will include Koh Young’s award-winning Zenith, the world’s first true 3D AOI system, an example of Koh Young’s successful pioneering innovation in inspection technology. Zenith completely changed the prevailing industry paradigm from 2D to 3D inspection technology, since it measures the true profilometric shape of components, solder joints, patterns and even foreign material on assembled PCBs, overcoming the traditional shortcomings of 2D AOI.
Koh Young Technology, a leading provider of Solder Paste Inspection (SPI) and Automated Optical Inspection (AOI) systems, specializes in the design and manufacturing of 3D measurement and inspection equipment for the global circuit board assembly and semiconductor markets. Direct sales and support centers are in the United States, Germany, Japan, Singapore, China and Korea. For more information about the company, visit www.kohyoung.com.
