KIC plans to introduce the new SRA (Smart Reflow Analyzer) at IPC APEX EXPO 2019, scheduled to take place January 29-31, 2019 at the San Diego Convention Center in California. The SRA is an integrated fixture and profiler specifically designed for collecting reflow oven related data to analyze and track machine stability from run to run, and over time.
As it contains a built-in data collection module, it is an all-in-one smart fixture. This means that the SRA can be used no matter whose profiler you may currently have.
The SRA has six embedded thermocouples—three Air TCs and three Mass TCs—which are used to calculate and display a variety of data for each oven zone such as measured zone temperatures and side to side uniformity. With the use of the SRA, users also are able to identify changes in heat transfer in a zone over time, through the display of HTI (Heat Transfer Index). Additionally, it utilizes the latest in laser sensor technology to automatically measure the conveyor speed each time you run it through your machine.
The device is used to routinely check the performance of your machine and identify changes over time. Using a variety of available specifications, the machine’s performance is measured each time a pass is made based on your selected Process Window. The included SPC charting feature allows you to track the performance of individual zones, as well as other key parameters, based on specifications you select.
KIC is a technology company working to make reflow ovens smarter through thermal profiling automation and optimization solutions. With offices across the globe, KIC is ready to become your partner in oven-based manufacturing. Corporate headquarters are located at 16120 W Bernardo Dr., San Diego, California 92127.
