Reducing production costs to be discussed at SMTA Chihuahua
KIC is to exhibit at the SMTA Chihuahua Expo & Tech Forum (July 14) and will discuss KIC’s smart oven technologies which are said to lead to reduced production cost, higher quality and new capabilities that the electronic assembly market is starting to demand.
Over the last decade, reflow oven manufacturers have done a great job of making their ovens more stable, reliable and less expensive. Looking forward, the majority of additional customer value will be created in the utilization of the ovens, and that is the area where KIC has and continues to develop new technologies.
KIC’s technologies automatically measure the PCB profile and its match to the relevant process window. Share this continuous and near real-time process and traceability data with all authorized personnel and MES over the factory’s LAN. True process data helps the maintenance people troubleshoot and fix issues faster.
One key aspect of these smart technologies is that they are retrofitable on virtually all oven models at nearly any age. Now the entire factory can use smart oven technologies.
