KIC to Exhibit KIC Vision at SMTA International 2008

Aug 07, 2008

San Diego � August 2008 � KIC, the leader of thermal process development and control products, and winner of multiple industry awards, announces that it will highlight KIC Vision, an Automatic Profiling System, in booth 815 at the upcoming SMTA International exhibition and conference, scheduled to take place August 19-20, 2008, in Orlando, FL.

This low-cost system is designed for those customers that want to eliminate the manual tasks associated with periodic profiling for their reflow ovens. Although such profiling has been important for production quality as well as process documentation, many electronics manufacturers are burdened by the negative effects of such manual tasks. These negatives include interruption to the production flow, expense in terms of labor and material (profilers, thermocouples, �golden boards,� etc.), error-prone measurements, and the fact that infrequent profiling makes for poor quality control.

Priced comparative to a manual profiler, the easy-to-use KIC Vision provides the best of both worlds � It runs in the background continuously and automatically, and it provides sought-after profiles as frequently as once an hour. The system relies on embedded sensors in the reflow oven and the proven Virtual Profiling software to accurately measure the product profile. After a baseline profile, the product profile is automatically measured and logged in the computer without any further manual input. The measured profile data includes all pertinent process data such as peak temperature, soak, fit to process window and more. The user may the frequency of the automatic profiling from one profile in per hour increments up to once a week time slots, in one-hour intervals. KIC Vision reduces production downtime, recovers labor time resources and significantly improves product quality.

The extremely cost-effect KIC Vision now makes automatic profiling accessible to most electronics manufacturers large and small. It is time to put Vision into the reflow oven.

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 the KIC Explorer, products include 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.
