KIC’s new SPS Smart Profiler reflow process inspection tool
KIC will discuss how to turn your factory into a Smart Factory with KIC’s new SPS Smart Profiler reflow process inspection tool and all new KIC Vantage network insight software at the SMTA Ohio Expo & Tech Forum – Thursday, July 13, 2017 at the Embassy Suites Cleveland Rockside in Independence (Cleveland), OH. The core function of a reflow oven is to produce an acceptable profile on each PCB. The new KIC SPS smart profiler collects the profile data and compares it to the process specifications. Within seconds, the new smart profiler also suggests an improved reflow oven setup. The thermal profiler features a small compact design made with an LCP (Liquid Crystal Polymer) enclosure for better heat protection and faster cool-down between profiles. The KIC Vantage network intelligence system is an ecosystem that automatically acquires and delivers insightful information from all the ovens in the factory in real-time to allow factories to produce consistent quality at lower costs.
