Meet with KIC's Thermal Process Experts Who Make Ovens Smarter at SMTA Juarez & SMTA Tijuana


Reading time ( words)

KIC is pleased to announce plans to exhibit at the SMTA Juarez and Tijuana Expo & Tech Forums in Mexico. The SMTA Juarez Expo & Tech Forum is scheduled to take place Thursday, May 19, 2022 at the CIITA – IPN Chihuahua. The SMTA Tijuana Tech Day & Expo will be held Thursday, May 26, 2022 at the Quartz Hotel. Miguel Carbajal, KIC’s Mexico Sales Manager, will be available to discuss Reflow Process Inspection (RPI), Wave Process Inspection (WPI), NPI setup, process and recipe optimization for reduced defects, improved OEE, oven performance tracking and solutions for thermal processes.

The company offers the industry’s leading solution for turning Heat to Data™, offering a complete ecosystem that covers all electronics assembly and semiconductor packaging thermal processes, as well as manufacturing challenges for process setup and inspection. KIC offers automation, traceability and connectivity for the automotive, medical, aerospace, network and military markets for electronic manufacturing.

Electronics manufacturing today requires automated and real-time process control and traceability. Like SPI and AOI are for optical inspection, inspection of the production reflow temperature profile is a must. Process control, traceability and quality solder joints can be delivered with real-time inspection capabilities. That is what KIC provides (and invented) for your thermal processes. 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.

KIC has solutions for challenges such as handling process audits, automating manual profiling and data reporting tasks, MES connectivity, Industry 4.0 implementation, NPI process setup, reducing solder defects (voiding, head in pillow, tombstoning), and more.

The latest addition to the thermal process inspection family is KIC’s WPI, bringing its award-winning technology and thermal experience to the wave solder process. Wave Process Inspection provides users with automatic profiling – including an industry first dwell time and parallelism measurement for each production board – real-time preheat and wave analytics, automatic SPC charting and more.

I recently spoke with Rob Boguski, president of Fremont, California-based Datest and an SMTA vice president and board member. Rob explained why today’s test customers are asking for more information than the traditional pass/fail, offers a preview of SMTA International, and gives an update on SMTA’s planning strategy for the next five years.

Four Silver Linings in the Stormy Clouds of Pandemic, Supply Chain, and Inflation

09/14/2022 | Dr. Ronald C. Lasky, Indium Corp.
It may be difficult to see any bright spots in the current and recent economic situation. We have all experienced the devastation of the pandemic, supply chain issues, and most recently, inflation. However, as a senior technologist for an international materials supplier (Indium Corporation) and a professor of engineering at an Ivy League research university (Dartmouth College), I offer these four silver linings for those of us in the electronics industry.

Solder Paste Printing and Optimizations for Interconnecting Back Contact Cells

07/26/2022 | Narahari S Pujari and Krithika PM, MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions
The interdigitated back contact (IBC) is one of the methods to achieve rear contact solar cell interconnection. The contact and interconnection via rear side theoretically achieve higher efficiency by moving all the front contact grids to the rear side of the device. This results in all interconnection structures being located behind the cells, which brings two main advantages. First, there is no frontside shading of the cell by the interconnection ribbons, thus eliminating the need for trading off series resistance, losses for shading losses when using larger interconnection ribbons. Second, a more homogeneous looking frontside of the solar module enhances the aesthetics.
