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.
