Speakers’ Insight

img 1. "Product failures are expensive, if not disastrous. Intelligent inspection systems designed to find defects automatically and efficiently are today an integral part of the manufacturing process. Humans are not ideal for high quality mass inspection of electronics production as we will easily get bored and are prone to make mistakes. Machine vision comes in to replace human vision to enable fast and reliable inspection based on deterministic algorithms and programmed applications. With automated optical inspection, we can collect images under controlled conditions and extract relevant image information subjected to defined criteria. It helps to avoid human slip and allows for adaption to changes of production in a controlled way. Human interaction is minimised and only necessary for troubleshooting. Overall productivity will be raised eventually. Designed to fit test-gates in the manufacturing process, highly connected and intelligent inspection systems will enable autonomous factories while enhancing the reliability and functional safety of electronics systems."

img 2. "We are teaming up with the Hong Kong Productivity Council to promote the Industry 4.0 adoption in Hong Kong. I am pleased to share with you here how Industry 4.0 can improve product reliability in different aspects. Industry 4.0 is not just about automation, but a concept of using industrial data analytics to get a real-time overview on the state of production and to enable smart decision making. It will increase transparency by enhancing data availability and improving predictability through established patterns and realistic models. The electronics industry is ready to take up the challenge of Industry 4.0. It is important to adopt a holistic approach by integrating suppliers’ and customers’ data over the product lifecycle to enable smart production. With the availability of lower-cost sensors and better network connectivity, various applications can be adopted to achieve predictive maintenance and quality control. The biggest benefit is tracking and tracing faults to identify root causes in production. The electronics industry can leverage different applications along Industry 4.0 for reliability optimisation."
