Move toward the future of line connectivity, flexible production, process transparency, machine learning and real-time insight

Jun 13, 2017

KIC announces plans to exhibit at the SMTA Ohio Expo & Tech Forum, scheduled to take place Thursday, July 13, 2017 at the Embassy Suites Cleveland Rockside in Independence (Cleveland), OH. MB (Marybeth) Allen will showcase discuss how to turn your factory into a Smart Factory with KIC’s new SPS Smart Profiler reflow process inspection tool and all new KIC Vantage network insight software.

The core function of a reflow oven is to produce an acceptable profile on each PCB. The new KIC SPS smart profiler collects the profile data and compares it to the process specifications. Within seconds, the new smart profiler also suggests an improved reflow oven setup. The thermal profiler features a small compact design made with an LCP (Liquid Crystal Polymer) enclosure for better heat protection and faster cool-down between profiles.

The KIC Vantage network intelligence system is an ecosystem that automatically acquires and delivers insightful information from all the ovens in the factory in real-time to allow factories to produce consistent quality at lower costs. The software is retrofitable and can connect to the factory MES system.


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 SPS, 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.
