- 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.

- 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".
