Reading time ( words)

KIC announced that MB (Marybeth) Allen will discuss the retrofittable Smart Factory Starter Kit that contains all of the elements of the smart factory concept relating to reflow and curing ovens at the SMTA Wisconsin, Carolinas and Michigan Expos. The SMTA Wisconsin Expo & Tech Forum is scheduled to take place Tuesday, May 8, 2018 at the Milwaukee Airport Crowne Plaza in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The Carolinas Expo & Tech Forum will be held Tuesday, May 15, 2018 at the DoubleTree Raleigh Brownstone in Raleigh, North Carolina, and the Michigan Expo & Tech Forum will take place Tuesday, May 22, 2018 at Laurel Manor in Livonia, Michigan. 

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. The retrofittable starter kit includes: 

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

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.
