KIC releases new smart technology for real-time insight into reflow and wave solder processes

Oct 12, 2017

KIC is pleased to announce the release of its new Vantage network software system. The new software provides a real-time dash-board for thermal processes, accessible anywhere, from any authorized PC or mobile device. The process data is automatically stored in a central location where the engineer can quickly retrieve and share all relevant data.

The Vantage delivers value to users, not through massive amounts of raw data, but through convenient access to only relevant and/or actionable data. For example, with a few mouse clicks, the user can access traceability data for every assembled PCB within a certain time frame, oven, shift, client name, or all of the above.

KIC’s President Bjorn Dahle states: “The smart factory is about using data to run the factory more effectively. A few years ago people were asking us to provide them with real-time data accessible from anywhere. Now they are saying: ‘Help, I am drowning in information!’ The key is using data analytics to deliver insight and actionable data. A second benefit is the management of instructions and task verification. The responsible engineer has literally thousands of balls in the air at any time while hoping that all of the instructions were understood and executed correctly. Vantage organizes and shares both the data management and task execution for every reflow oven and wave solder machine in the factory.”

Move toward the future of line connectivity, flexible production, process transparency, machine learning and real-time insight. For more information about KIC, 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 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.
