System to display thermal profiling strengths at SMTAI 2014
In Booth #439 at SMTA International 2014, visitors will be able to see KIC's ProBot automatic profiling system and K2 profile setter. Complementing AOI inspection, the ProBot automatically measures the profile for each PCB and verifies whether each PCB is processed to specification in the reflow oven. The system then allows for suspect PCBs to be identified and isolated.
The ProBot’s software will store the relevant solder paste and component temperature tolerances and check that each PCB was processed in accordance with these process windows.
The K2 new generation profile setter, a thermal profiling technology, is available both as a standard “passive” profiler as well as an “active” profiler in one unit. The passive profiler measures and displays the myriad of time/temperature data for the profile on a PCB and displays it in an easily accessible manner.Owing to the compact and robust design, the K2 will fit through the tight, heated chambers often found in lead-free production and is priced competitively for the mid-range market. For viewing convenience and accessibility, the Mobile Profile View App can be utilised to transmit information wirelessly to a mobile device. The K2 is available with automatic prediction software that suggests the best oven recipe to position the profile deep inside the established process limits.
SMTA International 2014 is scheduled to take place between September 30th and October 1st, 2014 at the Donald Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL. KIC will be co-located with Heller at the two-day exhibition.
