KIC to showcase real-time dashboard, traceability and data analytics at NEPCON China

Mar 20, 2018

KIC today announced plans to exhibit in Booth 1B58 at NEPCON China, scheduled to take place April 24-26, 2018 at the Shanghai World EXPO Exhibition & Convention Center. The KIC team will debut the new ecosystem led by the Vantage network software system and discuss the SPS smart profiler.

The new KIC Vantage software is designed to help engineers gain insight into their reflow and wave solder processes to enable better and faster decision making. It provides a real-time dash-board for thermal processes, accessible anywhere, from any authorized PC or mobile device. The process data is automatically stored in a central location where the engineer can quickly retrieve and share all relevant data for full process traceability.

The Vantage delivers value to users, not through massive amounts of raw data, but through convenient access to only relevant and/or actionable data. For example, with a few mouse clicks, the user can access traceability data for every assembled PCB within a certain time frame, oven, shift, client name, or all of the above.

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. It utilizes smart factory technologies to acquire and analyze thermal process for new insight and actionable data leading to increased production line utilization, reduced rework and electricity use.

Move toward the future of line connectivity, flexible production, process transparency, machine learning and real-time insight. For more information about KIC, stop by Booth 1B58 during NEPCON China 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.
