KIC’s 24/7 Wave Revolutionizes the Wave Process in Asia – 2012 EM Asia Innovation Award Winner

KIC’s 24/7 Wave

KIC announces that it has been awarded a 2012 EM Asia Innovation Award in the category of Software – Process Control Tools for its KIC 24/7 Wave. The award was presented to Ronnie Teo  during an April 26, 2012 ceremony in Shanghai during NEPCON China.

The new KIC 24/7 Wave utilizes embedded sensors in the wave solder machine to automatically measure the thermal profile for each and every processed PCB to the acceptable process window. A thermocouple also is installed in the solder pot to constantly measure the pot temperature.  In addition, the KIC 24/7 Wave reduces setup time by quickly suggesting the most optimum recipe for each and every PCB.

Any out of spec situation is immediately identified, while the standard SPC charts automatically provide Cpk numbers with the ability to provide alarms when the process starts drifting. Every PCB profile is recorded for easy retrieval for full process traceability. Traceability down to the individual PCB is achieved when bar codes are used.

The initial programming of the KIC 24/7 Wave is performed with a KIC profiler. The KIC profiler is capable of quickly identifying the appropriate wave solder settings for an improved process. 

Established in 2006, the EM Asia Innovation Awards program strives to recognize and celebrate excellence in the Asian electronics industry, inspiring companies to achieve the highest standards and push the industry forward.
