Smart Factory Starter Kit from KIC at the SMTA Dallas Expo


Reading time ( words)

KIC announces plans to exhibit at the SMTA Dallas Expo & Tech Forum, scheduled to take place Tuesday, April 10, 2018 at the Plano Centre in Plano, Texas. The retrofittable starter kit has all of the elements of the smart factory concept as it relates to the reflow and curing ovens: 

  • Machine optimization software
  • Process transparency
  • Extreme Automation
  • Flexible production (eliminate changeover time)
  • Connectivity
  • Machine learning
  • Real-time information and insight
  • Reduced electricity use 

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

Begin the road to a Smart Factory implementation with a low investment / low risk / narrow focus starter kit.  You will advance up the smart factory learning curve which positions you well to take on the rest of the factory. 

The KIC Smart Factory Starter kit for contains: 

1 ea. The all-new KIC SPS 7 channel real-time Wi-Fi reflow Profiler
1 ea. KIC RPI (Reflow Process Inspection) or ProBot automatic systems
1 ea. The all-new KIC Vantage network insight factory software
(On-site visit by a KIC certified technician is included) 

Move toward the future of line connectivity, flexible production, data analytics, process transparency, machine learning and real-time insight. For more information about KIC, stop by our table or click here.

Managing the supply chain for electronics manufacturing has always been challenging. About 70-80% of the cost of building an electronic product is for the parts, while the remaining cost is in the process to assemble and test the product. However, during the worldwide pandemic, the strain on the overall supply chain for any product has been stretched to the breaking point. When supply of toilet paper, hand towels, and sanitizer is disrupted and cannot be found on the grocery store shelves, one could imagine the challenges in a similarly disrupted supply chain of efficiently acquiring complex electronic components.
