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.
