Reading time ( words)

Computrol, Inc., a world-class provider of mid- to low-volume, high-mix electronic manufacturing services to OEMs, has purchased three KY-8030-3 in-line, fully automated SPI systems from Koh Young Technology.

Computrol’s medium-volume customers will benefit from the KY-8030’s rugged dependability and all of the benefits of in-line 3D SPI. The KY-8030-3 uses patented Koh Young shadow-free inspection technology and software to deliver 100 percent 3D inspection of solder paste. It delivers superior value and offers true patented 3D volume measurement. Additionally, the following features will help Computrol continue to offer world-class manufacturing to its customers:

  • No false calls – no escapes – no shadow problems
  • Highest accuracy and repeatability
  • No PCB color sensitivity
  • Solder paste printing optimization - at its best
  • Accurate, powerful SPC tool package

Computrol installed two of the systems at its Meridian, ID plant and one at its Orem, UT facility. “We purchased this system to better meet the high quality demands of our customers,” said James Spencer, Engineering Manager for Computrol.
