KIC Ships 4,000 Continuous Monitoring Systems

Oct 31, 2006

KIC, the leader of thermal process development and control products, and winner of multiple industry awards, announces the delivery of its 4,000th continuous thermal process monitoring system. These systems rely on embedded sensors in the curing and reflow ovens to automatically determine the process data for each processed board.

KIC President Bjorn Dahle said, �The popularity of such systems has primarily been driven by the OEM's request for process traceability and the manufacturers need to automate manual tasks such as periodic profiling. The lead-free conversion, however, has become a major market driver for KIC�s process monitoring systems as well as our process development and optimization tools. With increasingly difficult lead-free thermal processes, electronics manufacturers require the process technologies that KIC alone provides.�

The KIC systems allow manufacturers to optimize the thermal process and to monitor the process for each and every part to ensure continuous quality production. The KIC 24/7 will instantly alarm on an out-of-spec situation as well as provide real time Cpk data on each processed part. The KIC 24/7 allows for process traceability and defect-free thermal production, including lead-free assembly, while simultaneously improving productivity, hence lowering production costs.


Based in San Diego, KIC is the industry leader in automated thermal management tools and systems for reflow, wave, cure and semiconductor thermal processes. The company pioneered the development of oven profilers and process development tools, and then worked to create the next generation of thermal systems to help manufacturers optimize and monitor thermal processes.

In addition to SlimKIC 2000-LF, products include standard SlimKIC�2000 and the KIC�24/7 continuous monitoring system. With the introduction of SlimKIC 2000-LF, the company continues to stay on the leading edge of process optimization and real-time thermal management systems.
