Reading time ( words)

KIC plans to exhibit at the SMTA Silicon Valley Expo and Tech Forum, scheduled to take place Wednesday, Nov. 28, 2018 at the Bestronics Box Build Facility in San Jose, California. KIC Manager MB (Marybeth) Allen will discuss the new RPI i4.0 automatic profiling system with integrated network software for real-time data sharing, dashboard, and traceability storage.  Step right into the built-in Smart Factory Smart Oven Inspection and Monitoring System.

Recently, factories have been 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. The bottom line…higher quality, lower costs.  Beat the competition.

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.

With RPI i4.0, all relevant data can connect to the factory MES or your factory data collection system to be easily shared with personnel, and can be accessed from any authorized PC or mobile device. The enhanced level of automation delivers improved line utilization and productivity.
