Altus get SMART with Koh Young’s Innovative New Software

Jun 26, 2017

With ‘Industry 4.0’ and the ‘SMART’ Manufacturing model of increasing interest, Altus a leading distributor of capital equipment for electronics assembly, is helping companies choose products that will work within this revolutionary process.

The requirement for real-time processing is becoming an important resource, and Industry 4.0 will help in implementing this development. It is thought to change the face of the electronics industry in the future, with specialist companies producing equipment and software that provides information to improve a customers’ efficiency. Altus is helping this innovative process by supplying equipment that works to the SMART ideal. One example of this is Koh Young’s Ksmart Solution, which achieves fully automated real-time process control so it can comfortably sit within a SMART factory setting.

Ksmart Solution is a new software that works with technologies that have 3D AOI and SPI capabilities. It incorporates an ‘Intelligent Platform’ that ensures the highest level of connectivity for all the inspection stations, enhancing overall automation capability.

It is also extremely flexible allowing connection to all the inspection machines (AOI, SPI, peripheral) in any given SMT line and has the capacity to collect and analyse measurement data from the SMT process.

The software also allows manufacturers to trace the root cause of defects and process deviation by carrying out essential analyses of reliable full 3D board data. All this detail makes the software solution an essential technology in helping to move manufacturing towards the Industry 4.0 ideal.


Altus Group was formed in 2001 to support the UK and Irish market for Surface Mount Technology, capital equipment for every process, peripheral equipment, spares and consumables and most importantly excellent service support.

The Altus Group product line has evolved over the years with carefully selected suppliers who offer ‘best in class’ products at cost effective prices, from world leading brands.

The Altus Team has a network of highly skilled technical sales specialists, applications and service engineers, providing local support across the UK and Ireland.

In 2005 sister company Danutek was formed with offices in Hungary and Romania to service the needs of local customers and multi-national companies with manufacturing facilities in the Central and Eastern European marketplace. www.altusgroup.co.uk
