ViTrox and KIC Establish Cooperation and Connectivity

Aug 16, 2017 | KIC today announced a new business relationship with ViTrox Corporation. ViTrox, the leader in visual inspection and production line dashboard systems, and KIC, the smart oven technology company, have established this new business relationship to meet the needs of the evolving electronics industry. The need for real-time data and insight from production machines and inspection systems is growing rapidly as the electronic manufacturing industry converts factories into smart production facilities. While real-time dashboard and traceability systems have been around for some time, the ‘black box’ reflow process has been a glaring omission in such systems. The ViTrox V-One system will connect to KIC’s automatic profiling and thermal monitoring systems to offer a full line solution.
