K2 European Debut at SMT Nuremberg 2014, KIC’s new Profiler with Apps for Viewing on Mobile Devices

Apr 23, 2014

KIC is proud to announce the launch of its new thermal profiler, the K2, which will make its European debut at SMT Nuremberg, May 6-8, 2014 at the SMT Hybrid Packaging at the Exhibition Centre in Nuremberg Germany.

The K2 builds on KIC’s tradition of a compact and robust hardware that measures profiles accurately, even in harsh environments.  The plug-and-play hardware and graphical user interface makes profiling both quick and easy.  The KIC software enables each thermocouple to use its own unique process window, while the optimization software automatically suggests the best oven setup to process the entire PCB and components in spec.  This convenience, combined with lightning fast speed, allows oven setup in a few seconds.

The profile data measured by the K2 can now be viewed both on a PC as well as on authorized Android and Apple mobile devices. The Mobile Profile Viewer App is also WiFi and Bluetooth compatible.

At KIC we strive to combine the accuracy and power of our profilers with speed and ease of use,” said Bjorn Dahle, President of KIC. “The Mobile Profile Viewer App is the natural next step in the progression of this technology.” 

The K2 also features fail-safe software that reduces the opportunity for error.  It enables a responsible process engineer to set the quality parameters while letting operators or technicians run the profiles.

For a demonstration, stop by KIC’s Booth, Hall 7, Booth 419, at SMT Nuremberg, or visit www.kicthermal.com today for more information!


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 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.
