Koh Young Technology Supports The Hermes Standard Initiative Meeting at NEPCON China 2018

May 10, 2018

Koh Young Technology, the leading 3D measurement inspection solutions provider, attended the 3rd Hermes Standard (THS) initiative meeting in Shanghai, China on April 23rd. The meeting, comprised of 31 SMT equipment suppliers, including 11 new participants, focused on many critical topics like field testing, synergy with the IPC CFX (Connected Factory Exchange), and further protocol development. As the founding member of this initiative, Koh Young has been moving forward with an ambitious implementation schedule to ensure THS version 1.0 could be deployed within just nine months of the first iteration.

The Hermes Standard is an open, non-proprietary standard for vendor-independent, machine-to-machine (M2M) communication. The TCP/IP- and XML-based protocol allows for simplified connectivity. Circuit boards pass through the entire production line with full traceability and data integrity, while eliminating repetitive barcode scanning at each station. The standard is completely open and free for SMT equipment supplier implementation.

Launched in March 2017, the initial Hermes Standard quickly gained market recognition among leading SMT players. The first project at Productronica 2017 was enormous success as proven by the number of companies expressing interest in the standard. Moreover, the open protocol was honored with the Global SMT Award in the category of “Software - Process Control.”

The Hermes Standard is expected to create synergy across platforms, especially when combined with the Koh Young’s KSMART solution for smart factories. Guided in part by Industry 4.0, the KSMART solution opens the door for the move to M2M communication and process optimization. For example, the KSMART Process Optimizer (KPO) allows the Koh Young SPI to automatically adjust the print process parameters by exercising complex machine-learning algorithms based on inspection and measurement feedback. The future expectation is for THS to underpin a comprehensive smart factory solution that can analyze and optimize process parameters across the entire SMT line.

“Connectivity is one of the defining characteristics of the smart factory. Different equipment vendors from the industry must come together to provide a digitally integrated process for the entire production floor. This is where The Hermes Standard comes into action. THS will help us realize a Smart Factory,” said Harald Eppinger, Managing Director of Koh Young Europe GmbH.
