KIC Auto-Focus Power - Thermal Process Optimization Software for Reflow Ovens Description:

Conveniently view and share profiles on mobile devices

Software Description

  • Auto-Focus Power™ is a ‘recipe search engine’ with an intelligent database
  • Every manual profile will populate the database. The correlations between the oven properties, thermal transfer rate, PCB characteristics and varying process windows enable very accurate oven setup recommendations
  • In short time, the database becomes intelligent enough that a recommendation for best oven setup for any new PCB will be generated without the need to run a new profile
  • Only input of the new PCB’s length, width and weight is required for the software to recommend the best oven recipe

Initial Oven Set Up

  • A new product requires the selection of an appropriate reflow oven recipe. Manual profiling will help identify the correct setup, but to select the initial recipe requires an educated guess
  • A poorly selected initial recipe runs the risk of:
    • Damaging the product
    • Requiring numerous profile runs before identifying the correct recipe
  • The Auto-Focus Power™ recommends the initial setup without running a profile and without the need for the technician’s educated guess – within seconds.

Optimization Criteria

  • Lowest energy use
  • The center of the process window
  • Maximum throughput
  • Fastest oven changeover (or a combination of these)

Reduced Electricity Consumption

  • Case studies indicate an instant 15% drop in electricity use in reflow ovens. Where do the savings come from?
  • Few reflow ovens are set up with consideration for electricity consumption, so they tend to run hot and fast
  • KIC’s Auto-Focus Power takes the slack out of the process by optimizing both throughput and heat/energy

Ease of Use – Ease of Results

  • Process insight and expertise built into the software
  • Define the process window and minimum conveyor speed – delegate the rest
  • Oven set up tasks may be handled by less experienced personnel – quickly
  • Less production downtime

Versatile and Low Cost

  • Auto-Focus Power™ works with KIC profilers.
  • Works on virtually any reflow oven on the market – old or new
  • The ROI tends to be exceptionally high due to the low investment cost combined with big cost savings
