KIC today announced plans to showcase the benefits of connected smart oven technologies at the 2018 IPC APEX EXPO, scheduled to take place Feb. 27 - March 1, 2018 at the San Diego Convention Center in Ca. An active member of the IPC Connected Factory Exchange (CFX) committee since the beginning, KIC will offer demonstrations of the connected factory, process visibility, traceability and more in booth #3301 during the three-day event.

The availability of an industry standard shifts the focus from individual machines and processes to a more effective, holistic approach, enabling new benefits previously not possible. For example, while placement machine changeover times have shrunk, the improvements mean little if they stand idle waiting for the reflow oven to stabilize on a new recipe. Sharing data from KIC’s oven changeover optimization software with the rest of the line, or MES system, secures reduced line downtime.

Move toward the future of line connectivity, flexible production, process transparency, machine learning and real-time insight. For more information, meet with the KIC team at the IPC APEX EXPO or 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.
