KIC to Showcase Smart Factory Starter Kit at IPC APEX EXPO 2018


Reading time ( words)

KIC will showcase its Smart Factory Starter Kit for reflow ovens at the IPC APEX EXPO 2018, scheduled to take place February 27–March 1, 2018, at the San Diego Convention Center in California. KIC will be in Booth 3301.

The retrofitable starter kit has virtually all of the elements of the smart factory concept as it relates to the reflow oven: machine optimization software; process transparency; extreme automation; flexible production; connectivity; machine learning; real-time information and insight; and reduced power usage.

Smart factories (Industrial IoT, Industry 4.0) promise a leap forward in terms of productivity and control. The technology delivers consistent quality, significant lower production cost, traceability, and customer value.

KIC's starter kit will enable users to move up the Industry 4.0 learning curve quickly. Most importantly, they will advance up the smart factory learning curve, which positions them well to take on the rest of the factory.

Real Time with… SMTAI 2020: Technical Conference Review

10/06/2020 | Real Time with...SMTAI
SMTAI 2020, which was converted to a virtual event, took place from September 28–30. I attend every year, but since there was no keynote in the virtual format, I went straight to the technical conference. This event covered a broad range of topics related to everything in assembly. Over 90 technical presentations are available, but this report covers just some of the sessions I attended.

High-reliability, Low-temperature Solder Alloys

05/18/2020 | Dr. Pritha Choudhury, MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions
Increased digitalization and greater connectivity have been driving miniaturization and more complex and integrated designs in electronics. As the real estate on PCBs shrinks, so does the size of packages. However, the drive for finding design solutions for increased performance has continued to expand. The solder joint is an essential part of assemblies for electronic devices as it provides electrical, thermal, and mechanical connections. Therefore, soldering materials have been evolving to enable such a technological revolution.

Via Reliability and Robustness in Today’s Environment
