KIC to Showcase Reflow Process Inspection with i4.0 Real-time Data Connectivity


Reading time ( words)

KIC will exhibit at the SMTA Ohio Expo & Tech Forum, scheduled to take place August 8, 2019 at the Holiday Inn Cleveland Strongsville. MB Allen, Manager for KIC’s Applications & Sales, will discuss the Reflow Process Inspection, RPI i4.0, automatic profiling system with integrated network software for real-time data sharing, dashboard and traceability.

KIC RPI i4.0 automatically acquires profile data from each PCB soldered in the reflow or curing oven, in real-time. It also offers real-time thermal process control data and traceability, reduces scrap and rework, fast defect troubleshooting, and live dashboards. Advanced data search and analytic features save the company 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 and can be viewed/accessed from any authorized PC or mobile device. The enhanced level of automation delivers improved line utilization and productivity.

What’s Driving AOI Innovation and Collaboration?

03/25/2020 | Brent Fischthal, Koh Young America
When we look at the optical inspection market growth trajectory, we can see how process challenges helped create innovations. For example, solder paste inspection (SPI) has undergone a shift from 2D to 3D because the 2D inspection technologies manufacturers traditionally used to collect solder deposit images could not solve shadowing problems. Thus, companies developed 3D SPI to capture the printed solder paste height to accurately measure the total volume of paste printed. Several years later, we see the same need for surface-mounted component inspection with AOI systems.

This Month in SMT007 Magazine: Business Practices Drive the Smart Factory, Not the Other Way Around (Part 1)

In Part 1 of this conversation, Sagi Reuven— business development manager at Mentor, a Siemens Business—makes the case that smart factory implementations must start with traditional process analysis and improvement before the data capture process is useful. He also covers how sometimes the key to utilizing Industry 4.0 comes from a change in mindset rather than a drastic change or investment in new equipment or processes.

IPC APEX EXPO 2020 Attendees Speak: Camille Sybert

"There’s a need for flexible solutions, so people are trying to make the most of the equipment that they buy, and they want to have the equipment that’s able to be flexible in scale with what it is that they’re looking for," said Camille Sybert of Nordson Electronics Solutions. "We have customers asking about future capabilities that they might not be ready for right now, but they want to know that it’s something that can be easily integrated into their processes in the future, as they’re in a position to better be able to do so."
