KIC SPS Smart Reflow Oven Profiler

2019-09-26T07:57:18+01:00September 21st, 2018|Reflow Profiling|

The KIC SPS (Smart Profiling System) Smart Profiler and Smart Dock are packed with the latest in data processing and wireless technologies. Manufactured with an LCP (Liquid Crystal Polymer) enclosure for better protection and faster cool down between profiles. KIC's profiling software is simple to use requiring little training, guiding the user through the reflow profiling process. Standard options with the SPS reflow oven profiler. [...]

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 [...]

KIC Profiling FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions

VIEW RELATED PRODUCTS FAQ - Reflow Profiling Do the KIC profilers require much training? KIC profilers are supplied with intuitive reflow profiling software which is easy to use. Depending on experience, very little or no training is required, the software leads the operator through the profiling process. The initial reflow profile setup would need to be done by a process engineer but reflow profile checks [...]

KIC Magazine – TRW Interview

2019-09-26T07:58:34+01:00November 22nd, 2016|Reflow Profiling|

VIEW RELATED PRODUCTS KIC's magazine article in February 2016 is an interview with Luis Bresil of ZF TRW by SMT Today Editor. ZF TRW use the KIC reflow oven monitoring systems worldwide to ensure they have full traceability and control 24/7. The KIC 24/7 system now superseded by the KIC RPI system, ensures the reflow oven profile is in spec. for every PCB reflowed. Once [...]

KIC Reflow Profiling – Minimise Changeover times

2019-08-26T16:35:23+01:00November 4th, 2016|Reflow Profiling|

VIEW RELATED PRODUCTS When loading a new reflow oven profile the temperature difference for the reflow profile can often vary from one product to another resulting in a long wait for the temperatures for new reflow oven profile to stabilise. KICs reflow profiling and optimisation software minimises the changeover times by creating thermally similar reflow profiles. Read KICs magazine article for more information - Instant [...]

KIC Profiling – More Profile Less Effort

VIEW RELATED PRODUCTS Is reflow profiling a priority in your process or is it considered a hurried task which will allow you to start production?Is reflow profiling a production planning problem rather than a time saving saving and quality improvement tool?Are components reworked as part of the process as there is always a short in the same area or a BGA sometimes doesn't reflow properly?Theseare issues in [...]

MVP Reflow Profile Check Tool

2019-09-02T08:53:37+01:00September 30th, 2016|Reflow Profiling|

Spot check your profile without sacrificing a PCB Traditionally a 'golden' board would be sacrificed to obtain a reflow profile and then overtime another PCB may be required to rerun the profile if the 'golden' board becomes damaged from repeatedly profiling the same board to check the reflow process. This is no longer necessary! Run a single  reflow profile using your PCB with the KIC [...]

The Reflow Profile Controls the PCB quality RPI controls the Profile

2019-08-26T17:33:41+01:00September 29th, 2016|Reflow Profiling|

The reflow profile is an important factor to ensure the quality of the solder joints on your PCB are acceptable during reflow in the oven. The reflow profile controls the PCB quality, a check that all areas of the PCB are within spec. What is controlling the reflow profile? Have the oven characteristics changed since the reflow profile was created, are there any thermal fluctuations [...]
