KIC Offers Automation and Smart Oven Technology for the Smart Factory


Reading time ( words)

KIC today announced that it will exhibit at the SMTA Guadalajara Expo & Tech Forum, scheduled to take place Oct. 5-6, 2016 at Hotel Riu Guadalajara. KIC will demonstrate how its smart oven technologies lead to reduced production costs, higher quality and the new capabilities that the electronic assembly market demands.

One exciting aspect of these smart technologies is that they are retrofitable on virtually all oven models at nearly any age. Now the entire factory can use smart oven technologies. 

KIC’s technology provides either near instant oven changeover time or dramatically reduced downtime. Additionally, KIC’s automatic systems eliminate manual tasks such as periodic manual profiling and reduce the opportunities for human mistakes in setting up and running the ovens.

KIC’s smart oven technologies automatically measure the PCB profile and its match to the relevant process window. Share this continuous and near real-time process and traceability data with all authorized personnel and MES over the factory’s LAN. True process data helps the maintenance people troubleshoot and fix issues faster. 

About KIC

Based in San Diego, KIC is the industry leader in automated thermal process tools and systems for reflow, wave, curing and semiconductor thermal processes. The company pioneered the development of oven profilers and process optimization tools, and then worked to create the next generation of thermal systems to help manufacturers improve the thermal process quality while reducing cost.

KIC products include the KIC K2, X5, KICstart2, ProBot, 24/7 Wave, KIC RPI and KIC Footprint. With the introduction of cutting edge tools, the company continues to stay on the leading edge of process optimization and automatic thermal process systems, and has won numerous industry awards.

Roundtable participants included Teresa Rowe, senior director of assembly and standards technology at IPC, Graham Naisbitt, chairman and CEO of Gen3, Jason Keeping, corporate process development at Celestica, and Doug Pauls, principal materials and process engineer at Collins Aerospace.

What’s Driving AOI Innovation and Collaboration?

03/25/2020 | Brent Fischthal, Koh Young America
When we look at the optical inspection market growth trajectory, we can see how process challenges helped create innovations. For example, solder paste inspection (SPI) has undergone a shift from 2D to 3D because the 2D inspection technologies manufacturers traditionally used to collect solder deposit images could not solve shadowing problems. Thus, companies developed 3D SPI to capture the printed solder paste height to accurately measure the total volume of paste printed. Several years later, we see the same need for surface-mounted component inspection with AOI systems.
