KIC’s Auto-Focus Power Software Named Environmentally Friendly Product by 2011 Global Technology Awards

Nov 20, 2011

KIC, the leader of thermal process development and control products, and winner of multiple industry awards, announces that it has been awarded a Global Technology Award in the category of Environmentally Friendly Products/Services for its Auto-Focus Power Software. The award was presented to the company during a Tuesday, November 15, 2011 ceremony that took place at the New Munich Trade Fair Centre in Munich, Germany during Productronica 2011.

This next-generation thermal process optimization system searches all available oven recipes and automatically selects the optimum process for individual applications within seconds. The standard Auto-Focus automatically selects the recipe that positions the process in the center of the process window, or alternatively, the fastest conveyor speed.

The new, advanced Auto-Focus Power software adds a third optimization criterion, namely by selecting the recipe that yields lower oven electricity consumption. Third-party research has verified the ability of the Auto-Focus Power option to reduce energy consumption up to 15 percent. This key feature results in significant cost savings in today’s environment of high energy prices.

We are very proud of our Auto-Focus Power and pleased with the recognition that it has received.  It is not everyday that a new technology is invented that provides so much value to users in so many ways.  Auto-Focus Power improves quality by setting up the reflow oven in the sweet spot of the process, while reducing cost as well as the oven’s carbon footprint.  All the stars seemed to align themselves with this wonderful technology,” said KIC’s President Bjorn Dahle.

Premiering in 2005, the Global Technology Awards program is an annual celebration of product excellence in electronics surface mount assembly. Premier products based on the finest examples of creative advancement in technology are chosen by a distinguished panel of industry experts.

 


Based in San Diego, KIC is the industry leader in automated thermal management tools and systems for reflow, wave, cure and semiconductor thermal processes. The company pioneered the development of oven profilers and process development tools, and then worked to create the next generation of thermal systems to help manufacturers optimize and monitor thermal processes.

In addition to KIC Explorer, products include the KIC 24/7 continuous monitoring system, the KIC Vision automatic profiling system and more. With the introduction of cutting edge tools, the company continues to stay on the leading edge of process optimization and real-time thermal management systems, and has won numerous industry awards.
