KIC today announced that it will exhibit in Booth #1G22 at NEPCON China, scheduled to take place April 26-28, 2016 at the Shanghai World EXPO Exhibition & Convention Center. KIC will showcase its automatic smart oven technologies that eliminate manual tasks such as periodic manual profiling and reduce the opportunities for human mistakes in setting up and running the ovens.
KIC will demonstrate how its smart oven technologies lead to reduced production costs, higher quality and new capabilities that the electronic assembly market is starting to demand. One exciting aspect of these smart technologies is that they are retrofitable on virtually all oven models at nearly any age. Now the entire factory can use smart oven technologies.
As electronic product variety continues to grow, the result is more frequent production line changeover. Productivity is lost when a multimillion dollar production line waits 15-30+ minutes on a $50,000 oven to stabilize on the new recipe. KIC’s technology provides either near instant oven changeover time or dramatically reduced downtime.
KIC’s smart oven technologies automatically measure the PCB profile and its match to the relevant process window. Share this continuous and near real-time process and traceability data with all authorized personnel and MES over the factory’s LAN. True process data helps the maintenance people troubleshoot and fix issues faster.
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 K2, X5, KICstart2, ProBot, 24/7 Wave 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.
