- 09:00 - 09:30Artificial Intelligence meets Real World - AI-based PCBA optical inspectionGrzegorz Kałucki - Artificial Intelligence Specialist - FitechNowadays it's hard to find someone who has not heard about the Artificial Intelligence. The term is still thrown around in various contexts as an universal remedy, meant to instantenously and effortlessly solve complex problems in which the classical algorithms fail miserably. Sadly, this stance could not be further from the truth. As a team that has been working on AI-based automatic optical inspection for PCBA assembly for the past few years, we will reveal just a bit of the messiness and unpredictability behind it. In this talk we will present our entire journey from the first prototype to a working, scalable, robust solution. We will show the effort it takes to transform a raw neural network output into a valuable, user-friendly information, the importance of infrastructure and short feedback loops, as well as how to properly handle ad-hoc requests.
- 09:35 - 10:05EMS and The Competitive Supply Chain – A Modern Software SolutionJani Leppalammi - Vice President of Sales - CalcuQuoteNow more than ever, EMS companies are facing increased pressure from their customers to meet unprecedented demands. Manufacturers are demanding lower costs, increased scope of services, faster turnaround times and improved quality. Margins are already tight in the EMS manufacturing industry, companies have to find a more efficient method for delivering improved efficiencies and productivity. The question we will be exploring is how EMS companies can use modern software technology and digital supply chains, to meet these increasing requirements and deliver effective solutions. ### Bio: Jani Leppalammi is a Finnish electronics industry veteran from several OEM and EMS companies. He has a BSc in electronics engineering, eMBA from sales and marketing, and MBA from Henley Business School. Currently, Jani is responsible for CalcuQuote global sales and marketing.
- 10:45 - 11:15Vapor phase soldering - the alternative soldering technology?Tobias Tuffentsammer - Head of Sales - ASSCONThe aim of the lecture is to present the possibilities of vapor phase soldering and to dispel any well-known arguments against the vapor phase as an adequate soldering technology. In general, the technology is briefly introduced and the subject of profiling and the use of vacuum is discussed in detail. Alleged weaknesses, such as cycle time and associated soldering errors, in particular 'tomb stoning' are highlighted, corrected and the real causes explained in detail. The lecture will be complemented with a user example on "Simple Profiling".
