The Missing Link on Your Production Floor – KIC Brings the RPI to Productronica

Oct 08, 2013

 RPI

KIC today announced that it will exhibit with its distributor SmartRep in Hall A2, Booth 371 at the 20th international Productronica International Trade Fair, scheduled to take place November 12 - 15, 2013 at the New Munich Trade Fair Centre in Munich, Germany. The KIC RPI brings to the thermal process the kind of process and deficiency information previously limited to the screen printing and pick & place machines.

The RPI provides process information on the PCB profiles during production.  Such real-time process information helps consistently produce the required quality. It is an automatic system that, once programmed, works in the background without any operator involvement.  Its capabilities include:

Process traceability down to individual PCBs

Provides process deficiency information to help correct defect issues quickly

Shares all pertinent process and production data in real-time

Automatically profiles each and every PCB

Provides instant alarm for out-of-spec situations

Automatic SPC charting, including Cpk 

Prevents human error such as production of the wrong PCBs or wrong oven recipe settings (bar code required)

The KIC RPI improves quality while lowering production cost.  It is universally applicable because it is independent of the oven model, production lines, personnel, PCB types, and even factory. For more information about KIC’s RPI or to request a demonstration, visit www.kicthermal.com.


Based in San Diego, KIC is the industry leader in automated thermal process tools and systems for reflow, wave, curing and semiconductor thermal processes. The company pioneered the development of oven profilers and process optimization tools, and then worked to create the next generation of thermal systems to help manufacturers improve the thermal process quality while reducing cost.

KIC products include the KIC X5, KICstart2, ProBot and the KIC RPI. With the introduction of cutting edge tools, the company continues to stay on the leading edge of process optimization and automatic thermal process systems, and has won numerous industry awards.
