Tired of profiling? KIC to show automatic real-time profiling at NEPCON South China

Aug 01, 2016

KIC today announced that it will exhibit in Booth #1N35 at NEPCON South China, scheduled to take place August 30-September 1, 2016 at the Shenzhen Convention & Exhibition 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. Products on display will include: the KIC RPI, X5 Profiler, K2 Profile Setter, KICstart2 Thermal Profiler and KIC EK-7 Thermal Profiler.

The KIC RPI brings process transparency and traceability to the thermal processes. The information no longer needs to only reside down on the production floor, but can flow seamlessly trough the network to be shared with the factory MES system and even clients. The result is less production stoppage, less risk of human mistakes and defects

The X5 Profiler redefines what a data intelligence profiler can and should do. As opposed to the low-cost data acquisition profilers that focus purely on recording a product profile, a data intelligence profiler takes the additional active role of suggesting new oven setup in order to optimize the thermal process.

The K2 Profile Setter is available both as a standard “passive” profiler as well as an “active” profiler in the same unit. The passive profiler measures and displays the myriad of time/temperature data for the profile on a PCB and displays it in an easily accessible manner. The standard Mobile Profile View App transmits the information from the PC wirelessly to a mobile device for the ultimate in viewing convenience and accessibility.

The KICstart2 Thermal Profiler utilizes core technologies developed by KIC, and is supported by KIC’s worldwide organization. The patented design concept automatically identifies the location of each oven heating zone, so no or few measurements are required. Additionally, the KICstart2 automatically corrects for different TC locations on the part, aligning them for improved profile graph viewing.

The KIC EK-7 is a new generation thermal profiler from KIC. It is capable of real-time profiling and its real-time profile transmission is achieved via industrial grade Bluetooth™ technology. The EK-7 is capable of stacking up to 1000 reflow profiles in its internal flash memory without the need to download profile data at every profile run.


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.
