Aug 27, 2009

an Diego — August 2009 — KIC, the leader of thermal process development and control products, and winner of multiple industry awards, announces that Brian O’Leary, its Americas Sales Manager, will present “Understanding the Thermal Reflow Process” from 2:30-3:15 p.m. at the upcoming 5th Annual Capital Expo & Tech Forum, scheduled to take place Thursday, September 10, 2009 at Johns Hopkins University/Applied Physics Lab in Laurel, MD.

Understanding the thermal reflow process has been a subjective event backed by limited data; however, experience and advances in the ability to collect data and deliver the data in a graphical and meaningful manner have lead to significant insights into the reflow process.

Working with customers and research institutes over the years, KIC has found that a set of “best practices” has immerged that lead to more robust accurate profiles, but that also lay the foundation for predictive modeling that can lead to host of cost savings and quality benefits to a SMT process.

KIC will be sharing these best practices that in today’s environment all point to the bottom line in “Understanding the Thermal Reflow Process.” After the 30-minute session, KIC will be distributing a newly released book on profiling, full of tips and examples on how to improve a company’s process (a $34.99 value) free to session attendees.

Brian O’Leary brings with him more than a decade of industrial sales, marketing and management experience in North and South America, Mexico and Asia. Prior to joining KIC, Brian worked for Sono-Tek as a manufacturer of spray fluxing equipment where he spent much of his time in Asia working in the overseas operations of Western OEMs and CMs.

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 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.
