KIC to Showcase 24/7 Process Monitoring at Nepcon Shanghai 2008

Apr 07, 2008

San Diego � January 07, 2008 � KIC, the leader of thermal process development and control products, and winner of multiple industry awards, will showcase its 24/7 Process Monitor in booth 2G30 at the upcoming NEPCON China/EMT China 2008 exhibition and conference -scheduled to take place April 8-11, 2008 in Shanghai, PR China.

KIC�s 24/7 Process Monitoring brings an innovative level of automation to the thermal process: Automatic profiling of each and every product, around-the-clock monitoring, SPC charting, analysis, documentation and production traceability � all in a single, intuitive product. Continuous tracking occurs in the background, never interrupting production. The real-time process data enables engineers and managers to make crucial cost containment and quality control decisions, thereby improving overall quality and consistency of performance, as well as providing significant cost benefits to users.

KIC 24/7 uses custom probes installed inside the oven at the product level to gather and record real-time thermal process data for every product. The KIC 24/7 automatically charts all critical process specs: peak temperature, soak time, time above liquidous, etc. The data is plotted on real-time control charts and process capability (Cpk) is calculated for each specification. The overall process window index (PWI) is charted, providing a real-time Cpk for the entire process. Any process drift outside of control limits or defined Cpk value will immediately trigger an alarm. Real-time Cpk tracking provides a zero-defect, fail-safe system that automatically identifies potential defects before they occur. KIC has creatively applied its separate monitoring technologies into this new, single process monitoring system in order to advance the thermal process, which is a very significant challenge in today�s industry.

Based in San Diego, KIC is the industry leader in automated thermal management tools and systems for reflow, wave, cure and semiconductor thermal processes. The company pioneered the development of oven profilers and process development tools, and then worked to create the next generation of thermal systems to help manufacturers optimize and monitor thermal processes.

In addition to KIC Explorer, products include the KIC 24/7 continuous monitoring system, the KIC Vision automatic profiling system and more. With the introduction of cutting edge tools, the company continues to stay on the leading edge of process optimization and real-time thermal management systems, and has won numerous industry awards.
