Fifth Sponsorship Announcement Internet of Manufacturing Forum

Global SMT & Packaging and Scoop are delighted to announce that their fifth sponsor for this year’s Internet of Manufacturing (IoM) is KIC.

Based in San Diego, KIC is the industry leader in automated thermal process tools and systems for reflow, wave, cure and semi-conductor processes. The company pioneered the development of process optimization and automatic profiling and then worked to create the next generation of systems to help manufacturers lower their cost and improve their quality and traceability.

KIC’s thermal profiling products have become omnipresent in the EMS industry, and have been compared with such household names as Intel for their famous ‘KIC on Board’ logo that appears on most reflow ovens.

“As a company that understands smart factory requirements, we are excited to welcome KIC as a sponsor” Philip Stoten, Founder Scoop stated.  The continuous drive for innovation within the electronics industry has accelerated the need for IoM, and a smart connected factory.  The smart factory is no longer a vision of the future, but a concrete promise.
