KIC to Discuss Automatic Profiling System at SMTA Silicon Valley


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.

Synergy Between Smart Manufacturing and the Secure Supply Chain (Part 2)

06/05/2019 | Michael Ford, Aegis Software Corp.
With the trend of shortening lead-times within the material ordering process, and the frequency with which urgent orders for materials from the grey market are made, there is increased opportunity for the ingress of counterfeit materials. The situation is made far worse when a genuine shortage of materials in the supply chain occurs. The consequences of not being able to eliminate the risk of defects getting through into the market will be disastrous for individuals as well as for the company brand image, not to mention the associated costs of recovery. It is only a matter of time, unless something very significant changes.
