San Diego — June 2018 — KIC is pleased to announce a new automatic profiling system with network software for real-time dashboard, data sharing and traceability storage. The new RPI i4.0 automatically acquires profile data from each product soldered in the reflow oven, in real-time. This new ecosystem offers full thermal process traceability, reduced scrap and rework, improved production line utilization and fast defect troubleshooting. Advanced data search and communication features save engineers valuable time.
The profile is compared to the relevant process window for traceability and can alarm instantly on out of spec conditions. Advanced search and filter functions on product name, customer name, time period and more, instantly provide pertinent data for deeper insight and effective troubleshooting. With RPI i4.0 all relevant data can connect to the factory MES to be easily shared with personnel, and can be accessed from any authorized PC or mobile device.
