Hi,

actually, I'm searching for a device to create reflow profiles like DATAPAQ, KIC, MOLE.... because our only one unit is broken...

Which one are you using and why? Do you know if someone have a second hand unit to sell?

Search the fine SMTnet Archives while you're waiting for others to respond.

Hi,

We used to manually profile by comparing logged temp numbers and matching the paste profile. But we got a KIC and it's software was so much better we got a good reduction in rework and we have almost no first run faults now. I would recommend one as the software is great, and tells you suggested zone temps to make the profile fit the paste profile. We also purchased that software that runs profile simulations and recommends the best temps.

It's absolutely incredible software, and that's what makes the difference. Other than that, it's just a simple data logger. But the software is the important part. I would evaluate that first.

Regards,

Grant

I used KIC before now I'm using MOLE. I recommend KIC.
