KIC to Exhibit at SMTAI


Reading time ( words)

KIC will exhibit in Booth #1218 at SMTA International, scheduled to take place Sept. 24-25, 2019 at the Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois. The KIC team will discuss Industry 4.0 automation, traceability, NPI setup, machine verification, and more, all for your thermal processes; reflow, wave solder and cure. RPI i4.0. is a simple solution and a great way to start your Industry 4.0 journey, changing heat to data on your reflow oven.

Step right into the built-in reflow process inspection and monitoring system—KIC RPI i4.0. It automatically acquires profile data from each PCB soldered in the reflow or curing oven, in real-time. Along with NPI setup tools, machine verification tools, and state-of-the-art profile datalogging, this new ecosystem offers real-time thermal process dashboard and traceability, reduced scrap and rework, fast defect troubleshooting, lower electricity use and more. Browser based data search and analytic features also save engineers valuable time.

Knowing that your production reflow temperature profile is inspected and monitored to maintain process control, traceability and quality solder joints for every product run through your oven is a must. This critical data should be a part of your overall Industry 4.0 smart factory solution to ensure all production through the oven is within specifications and that profile data is readily available for each individual board.

With RPI i4.0 and process setup tools, 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. This enhanced level of automation delivers improved line utilization and productivity.

Move toward the future of line connectivity, flexible production, machine learning and real-time insight.

SMTA Europe Webinar: What Is a Good Solder Joint, and How Can Solder Joints Be Tested?

11/18/2020 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
What is a good solder joint? And how can they be tested not only for purposes of process characterisation, optimisation, monitoring, and control but also for ensuring their long-term reliability? Pete Starkey details a webinar organised by the Europe Chapter of SMTA that was presented by Bob Willis, an expert in soldering, assembly technologies, and failure analysis.

This Month in SMT007 Magazine: Test and Measurement in a Smart Factory

11/03/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Nolan Johnson spoke with MIRTEC President Brian D’Amico about how the role of test and measurement equipment is changing in the smart factory and how shops can adjust to make use of the new technology. D’Amico shares this insight: “While approximately 90% of U.S. electronics manufacturers recognize the potential of Industry 4.0 to improve productivity, many are slow to adopt smart factory solutions within the manufacturing process.”

Reducing Flux Splatter in Sensors and Camera Modules

10/30/2020 | Jasbir Bath, Shantanu Joshi, and Noriyoshi Uchida, Koki Solder America And Koki Company Limited
With the increased use of electronics in new technology areas, flux formulations are being developed to address the new and existing requirements. For sensors and camera modules used for Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) and internet of things (IoT) applications, there is a demand for no-clean flux formulations in lead-free solder paste, which can reduce flux splattering during reflow.
