KIC today announced that it will showcase the affordable and easy-to-use ProBot automatic profiling system at the SMTA Intermountain (Utah) Expo & Tech Forum, scheduled to take place Thursday, October 23, 2014 at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, UT. The ProBot automatically measures the profile for each PCB and verifies whether each PCB is processed to specification in the reflow oven.
ProBot, an automatic profiling system, reduces the need for time consuming periodic profiling. ProBot will immediately identify if the oven is ready for in-spec production, receive warnings/alarms if the process drifts and automatically send product-related yield data to third party management/MES systems.
ProBot saves time and money by automating tasks such as periodic oven checks, PCB thermal profile data collection, potential thermal-related defects and yield data reports. Factories looking for traceability in the thermal process may add modules for barcoding, lot information and real-time yield charts. Additionally, the ProBot is designed to fit virtually any reflow oven on the market. The product is highly modular, allowing each user to specify the desired features. There is no longer a need to pay for unnecessary or unwanted capabilities.For more information, 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,
