KIC Successfully Completed CFX Validation


Reading time ( words)

KIC is one of the first companies to complete the IPC CFX validation and certification program.  As an early adopter KIC, with its RPI reflow process inspection system, is officially validated by IPC as CFX compliant. 

KIC has been on the IPC-CFX-2591 standards committee and its RPI system now fully covers the requirements of the standard for the reflow process and reflow profiling. CFX offers companies the tools to begin collecting data on a smaller scale at a low price. Using the IPC CFX standard offers the lowest cost to entry and lowest risk solution for implementation of Smart Factory.  

Successful utilization of IPC-CFX on the shop floor requires confidence and trust that equipment has been qualified to the CFX standard by an independent third party. Listing on the IPC-CFX-2591 Qualified Products List (QPL) ensures this for those who are looking for equipment and solutions that will integrate easily with CFX.

“KIC is an original member of the IPC CFX committee and an early adopter for the IPC validation program,” commented Miles Moreau, General Manager at KIC and IPC CFX committee member. “We support the efforts to make Smart Factory data collection an easier task for our customers, and with our RPI solution for reflow inspection we saw the perfect fit to be part of this program.”

Move toward the future of Smart Factory integration with Reflow Process Inspection, gaining line connectivity, flexible production, traceability, data analytics, process transparency/control, machine learning and real-time insight.

EIPC Technical Snapshot: Cleanliness

03/01/2021 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
John Ling’s invitation to the fifth in EIPC’s series of Technical Snapshots was as droll as we have come to expect: “In these confined days of lockdown, and exhortations to stay at home and only go out for exercise, this only exercises the natural inclination to hop on a ‘plane to some sunshine.’ Although not the same as Factor 20, one of our webinars gives a high degree of protection from harmful ignorance, and you do not have to go out in the cold.”
