Move up the SMART FACTORY Learning Curve with KIC at SMTA International

Aug 15, 2017

KIC announces plans to exhibit in Booth #123 at SMTA International, scheduled to take place September 19-20, 2017 at the Donald Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL. The KIC team will showcase the KIC ecosystem comprised of the brand new SPS Smart Profiler, RPI automatic profiling system, and the new Vantage with networked real-time dashboard.

The KIC Vantage is an ecosystem that automatically acquires and delivers insightful information from all the ovens in the factory in real-time to allow engineers to produce consistent quality at lower costs. The software is retrofitable and can connect to the factory MES system.

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 new 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. It utilizes a rechargeable battery, profile stacking, private Wi-Fi for wireless data communication plus much more. This all-new smart thermal profiler design has been optimized for maximum thermal protection plus robust long-term operation.

Combined, these solutions will quickly move you up the Smart Factory learning curve and turn your factory into a Smart Factory.

Move toward the future of line connectivity, flexible production, process transparency, machine learning and real-time insight. For more information about KIC, visit www.kicthermal.com.


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 SPS, K2, X5, KICstart2, ProBot, 24/7 Wave and the KIC RPI. 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.
