KIC Demonstrates Smart Factory Technologies at SMTA Guadalajara 2018


Reading time ( words)

KIC is pleased to announce plans to exhibit at the SMTA Guadalajara Expo & Tech Forum, scheduled to take place November 14-15, 2018 at the Expo Guadalajara. KIC will present technologies to retrofit the factory’s standard reflow ovens into smart, connected machines.

KIC RPI i4.0 automatically acquires profile data from each PCB soldered in the reflow or curing oven, in real-time. This new ecosystem offers real-time thermal process dashboard and traceability, reduced scrap and rework, fast defect troubleshooting, lower electricity use and more. Advanced data search and communication features save engineers valuable time.

Recently, factories are looking for ways to gain insight and data to enable more effective operations. Major benefits include significantly improved factory profitability through higher production line utilization, elimination of scrap or rework, fewer human mistakes, and perhaps the most significant of all: Improving the factory competitiveness and attractiveness for increased revenues and customer base.

“This is an exciting time for KIC and an industry trend that we have been waiting for a long time,” says Miguel Carbajal, GM for KIC Mexico. “We are no longer merely seen as a ‘profiling company’ but a partner that can help companies convert their standard factories into smart factories, by using reflow and thermal process data to achieve better and less costly results.”
