KIC’s 15/15: Energy Wizard Software Saves 15 Percent Electricity in 15 Minutes

Nov 15, 2010

San Diego, CA - KIC, the leader of thermal process development and control products, and winner of multiple industry awards, announces that its Energy Wizard products can reduce wasted energy in the production process.

Reflow ovens consume much electricity as a result of the tremendous amount of heat required to process PCB assemblies. Nearly all reflow ovens worldwide consume far more energy than required. This is because oven recipes are selected based on profile and throughput requirements with no consideration of electricity consumption. As a result, there is a significant amount of wasted electricity in factories everywhere.

To help remedy this waste of electricity, KIC has introduced its Energy Wizard software that allows technicians to identify the best oven setup that yields an in-spec process at the required throughput, while simultaneously optimizing for low electricity use. Several case studies indicate a typical electricity reduction of 15 percent while actually improving the process.

Whether the motivation is reduced production cost, a lower carbon footprint or both, the time has come to take the waste out of the reflow oven. Saving energy benefits bottom lines as well as the assembly process.

Based in San Diego, KIC pioneered the development of furnace profilers and process development tools. The company’s next generation thermal process systems help solar cell manufacturers increase cell efficiency through an optimized wafer profile.

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.
