KIC’s K2 is the latest technology in thermal profiling

San Diego – KIC today announced that it will showcase the affordable and easy-to-use ProBot automatic profiling system and K2 new generation profile setter in Booth #439 at SMTA International, scheduled to take place Sep. 30 - Oct. 1, 2014 at the Donald Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL. KIC will be co-located with Heller at the two-day exhibition.

The ProBot automatically measures the profile for each PCB and verifies whether each PCB is processed to specification in the reflow oven. The suspect PCBs are identified and may be isolated. One method to enhance the use of an X-ray system is to have these boards then be sent off to batch X-ray. Since the typical batch X-ray machine only inspects less than one percent of all assembled PCBs, the ProBot allows for a more effective sampling.

The ProBot also complements AOI inspection as these machines cannot see the solder joints hidden below BGA and PoP component bodies. 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 is the latest technology in thermal profiling. The K2 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. The standard Mobile Profile View App transmits the information wirelessly to a mobile device for the ultimate in viewing convenience and accessibility. Designed to be robust and compact, the K2 will fit through the tight, heated chambers often found in lead-free production and is priced competitively for the mid-range market. The K2 also is available with automatic prediction software that suggests the best oven recipe to position the profile deep inside the established process limits.
