KIC�s Enhanced Automatic Profiling System at NEPCON China 2008

Apr 07, 2008

San Diego � January 11, 2008 � KIC, the leader of thermal process development and control products, and winner of multiple industry awards, announces that the KIC Vision is now available with additional automatic capabilities - to be showcased at NEPCON China/EMT China 2008 exhibition and conference. KIC can be found in booth 2G30 of the exhibition, scheduled to take place April 8-11, 2008 in Shanghai, PR China.

The KIC Vision automatically measures a product�s thermal profile as frequently as once an hour. It eliminates the costly and error prone task associated with manual periodic profiling. While it runs in the background � without any operator involvement � to measure the product profile at a set time interval, it now can also shut down the feed conveyor when the measured profile is no longer in spec. This alarming function saves costly rework and scrap, and improves product quality.

Additionally, the new optional SPC package automatically logs basic SPC charts, including Cpk, every time a new profile is measured. This automatic feature enables basic SPC functionality at the operator level without the need for statisticians or other experts to watch over the process. This KIC Vision option will warn when the next profile�s Cpk level has dropped below the user selected level.

Both the alarming and SPC functions can trigger a light tower in order to alert the responsible technician of a problem. The data collected by the KIC Vision now can be output automatically to an external file for further data management by the user.

The new enhanced KIC Vision capabilities are designed for a higher level of automation for the electronics manufacturers� thermal process. These tools help increase quality and productivity while offering EMS clients an improved level of process documentation and traceability.

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 KIC Vision, products include the KIC Explorer, the KIC 24/7 continuous monitoring system, the KIC Vision automatic profiling system and more. With the introduction of cutting edge tools, the company continues to stay on the leading edge of process optimization and real-time thermal management systems, and has won numerous industry awards.
