KIC today announced that it will exhibit at the SMTA Michigan Expo & Tech Forum, scheduled to take place Thursday, May 19, 2016 at Laurel Manor in Livonia, MI. Marybeth (MB) Allen, Product Manager, will be available to discuss KIC’s smart oven technologies.
KIC’s smart oven technologies lead to reduced production cost, higher quality and new capabilities that the electronic assembly market is starting to demand.
Over the last decade, reflow oven manufacturers have done a great job of making their ovens more stable, reliable and less expensive. Looking forward, the majority of additional customer value will be created in the utilization of the ovens, and that is the area where KIC has and continues to develop new technologies
KIC’s smart technologies are retrofitable on virtually all oven models at nearly any age. Now, the entire factory can use smart oven technologies. KIC’s technologies automatically measure the PCB profile and its match to the relevant process window.
This continuous and near real-time process and traceability data can be shared with all authorized personnel and MES over the factory’s LAN. True process data helps the maintenance people troubleshoot and fix issues faster.
