With support and initial funding from Koh Young Technology Inc., based in Seoul, Korea, the SEMLab was established in 2016.

Our 6 collaborative partners have provided valuable equipment to create this impressive, one of a kind smart factory.




The projected value of SEML is 205.24 Billion (USD) by 2022, with a growth rate of 9.3% per year.

A closer look

Technical Perspective

The objective of the SEMLab is to develop smart electronics manufacturing solutions using data science (DS) and artificial intelligence (AI) principles to assemble  sophisticated electronics components, and surface mount assembly (SMA; module assembled with SMT) line which consists of a set of sequential procedures/equipment; stencil printing process (SPP), mounting, and solder reflow.




Our Smart Assembly

We focus on advanced robotic solutions to assist SMA line and revolutionize electronics manufacturing process with improved yield and productivity.

With automatic optimization, real-time intelligence techniques, and the implementation of advanced analytical approaches to large data collected from the equipment in SMT, the smart electronic manufacturing systems can optimize current SMA line operations with:

  • Fewer defects
  • High productivity
  • Increased reliability
  • Cost efficient results
