SINGAPORE, Sept. 12, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Kulicke and Soffa Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ:KLIC) ("Kulicke & Soffa", "K&S" or the "Company") today announced a collaboration with LeYu Precision Co., Ltd. ("LeYu") in Taiwan, to provide highly automated ball bonder production line solutions utilizing rail guided vehicle (RGV) material handling systems supporting the broad semiconductor market. Automated material handling systems utilize computerized devices and robots which ensure efficient transportation of magazines or carriers between storage buffers and production equipment on the manufacturing floor.
The collaboration has successfully implemented over 140 RGV production lines to date across multiple customer locations. Production efficiency enhancements are enabled through reducing operator interaction and eliminating standby time. In addition to the productivity gains, this automated approach accelerates the customer's path to full production. These integrated solutions support customers building new facilities as well as for retrofits of existing facilities.
"We believe that through this collaboration, leveraging LeYu's rich industrial experience in RGV robotic systems, together with K&S's ball bonding solutions, we are well positioned to deliver highly efficient material handling systems which better enable customers to implement Industry 4.0. This will simultaneously improve both quality and productivity." said Chan Pin Chong, Kulicke and Soffa's Executive Vice President and GM, Products and Solutions.
