KIC Offers Automation and Smart Oven Technology for the Smart Factory

Sep 06, 2016

Smart Oven Technology for the Smart Factory.

Smart Oven Technology for the Smart Factory.

KIC today announced that it will exhibit at the SMTA Guadalajara Expo & Tech Forum, scheduled to take place Oct. 5-6, 2016 at Hotel Riu Guadalajara. KIC will demonstrate how its smart oven technologies lead to reduced production costs, higher quality and the new capabilities that the electronic assembly market demands.

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.

KIC’s technology provides either near instant oven changeover time or dramatically reduced downtime. Additionally, KIC’s automatic systems eliminate manual tasks such as periodic manual profiling and reduce the opportunities for human mistakes in setting up and running the ovens.

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, KIC RPI and KIC Footprint. 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.
