Thermal Transfer Ribbons – Application Guide

2021-03-18T17:01:39+00:00March 18th, 2021|Labels|

VIEW PRODUCT RANGE For any durable label application, both print quality and resistance of the printed image when exposed to chemicals and abrasion is essential.  In most cases the base label material is identified first as it needs to fulfil its key objective, e.g. a Polyimide material for PCB serial number labels, required to withstand the SMT reflow or direct wave processes. The ribbon choice [...]

Why use a Digital Microscope for PCB Inspection

2020-09-30T16:29:41+01:00September 30th, 2020|Electronics Inspection|

VIEW PRODUCT RANGE Why use a Digital Microscope? Is there a need for this technology? Why not just use the traditional, stereo microscopes and 'eyepiece-less' stereo viewers that are available? The need for PCB inspection equipment in the production area has risen sharply as SMT components have become smaller and more complex. Stereo Microscopes were used for post production inspection in quality departments to check for [...]

Polyimide (Kapton®) high temperature labels

2020-07-16T15:07:38+01:00November 13th, 2017|Labels|

VIEW PRODUCT RANGE Polyimide labels are rated to withstand high process temperatures. Although Polyimide labels are high temperature labels they are rated for 270°c for 5 minutes. It would be more accurate to describe the polyimide labels as high temperature process labels as they are not designed to withstand high temperatures long term. The main application for polyimide labels is for PCB barcode indentification, to [...]

PCB Underheaters and Hot Plates

2019-09-02T10:06:03+01:00May 5th, 2017|Rework|

VIEW RELATED PRODUCTS PCB underheaters and PCB hot plates have had a place in rework and soldering for a long time, this is not new technology, but with the challenges of lead free soldering, a PCB underheater makes this process much easier and improves quality. Before PCB underheaters were introduced the PCB would not be properly preheated before rework or soldering. Even today with this [...]

KIC’s NEW SPS ‘SMART Profiler’ now available from Link Hamson

2019-09-02T09:55:36+01:00April 13th, 2017|News|

KIC announce the release of the game changing SMART Profiler (SPS), a new reflow profiler that transforms thermal process data collection from a costly chore to a value-added function. The core function of a reflow oven is to produce an acceptable profile on each PCB. The new KIC SPS smart profiler collects the profile data and compares it to the process specifications. Within seconds, our [...]

How to Properly Calculate Reflow Temperature Gradients

2019-09-26T07:57:47+01:00March 28th, 2017|Reflow Profiling|

Whilst creating your reflow profile do you consider the max. rising and falling slopes? How do you calculate the max rising and falling slope? Do you check your component specifications to ensure the reflow profile is 'safe' for critical  components? In the article 'How to Properly Calculate Reflow Temperature Gradients' Vitor Barros, KIC Europe's General Manager, discusses how the max. rising and falling slopes should be [...]
